Plans for a remake of the Tobe Hooper classic Poltergeist have been in motion for quite a while now, and word comes today of a director attached to the project.  Monster House director Gil Kenan has been tapped to take the reins on the Sam Raimi produced remake.

According to Deadline, MGM has found a director for its remake of the horror classic Poltergeist. It’s Gil Kenan, who’s best known for helming Monster House and City Of Ember.  The remake of the 1982 Tobe Hooper-directed pic is being produced by Sam Raimi, Nathan Kahane, and Roy Lee.

The original film starred Craig T. Nelson and Jobeth Williams as parents in a family whose dream house turns into a nightmare.

I’m sure we will have much more news on this project as it progresses and we’ll bring it all to you right here at Horror Society!
