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.
