There had been rumors that Sam Raimi -- who's on board as a producer -- would helm the remake of Tobe Hooper's 'Poltergeist,' but they didn't come to pass. Gil Kenan, best known for being behind the motion captured 'Monster House' and live-action film 'City of Ember,' just landed the job as the remake's director.
It was confirmed earlier this year that a 'Poltergeist' remake is most definitely in the works with Sam Raimi involved in the project, but now we're hearing that Raimi might just be directing the remake himself... Probably...
At a recent speaking engagement at the University of Denver, MGM CEO Roger Birnbaum was quite chatty about the studio's upcoming projects -- particularly its remake plans, which include a 'Poltergeist' reboot they're negotiating with Sam Raimi to direct.
