They’re Heeeereee! Poltergeist Reboot on the Way

poltergeistThat’s right people! First it was Evil Dead and now spooky classic Poltergeist is getting a modern remake/reboot.  With Gil Kenan (Monster House), Sam Raimi, Rob Talpert (Both of Evil Dead fame) producing it definitely has a steady background to build on.

Kenan has just started to cast for the roles, and shooting is believed to be starting as quick as this September in Toronto, Canada.

The new version follows Eric Bowen and his family who, after he loses his job, relocate to a new town to start anew. His daughter, Madison, is abducted, making him truly understand what’s important in life: family. In the new version, Eric’s wife, Amy, can communicate with the dead.

Another interesting new character is Carrigan Burke, a television personality who hosts “Haunted House Cleaners.”” The supernatural doesn’t scare this guy. Dr. Brooke Powell is Carrigan’s ex-wife who is a parapsychologist at a local university.Her team investigates the supernatural events surrounding the disappearance of the Bowen girl.

If the latest Evil Dead reboot is anything to go by, having Raimi and Talpert on board can only be a good thing. I look forward to seeing trailers for this, and we will keep you updated with all the latest news.
