Default Poltergeist (Remake)

Sam Raimi to Produce ‘Poltergeist’ Remake

Quote:
Even as Hollywood continues to be racked with remake/reboot fever, there have only been rumblings here and there about the Poltergeist remake. That’s quite the change from three years ago, when the project was briefly scheduled to hit theaters in 2010 – only to end up being delayed indefinitely.

That looks to change, now that Sam Raimi is committed to producing (but not directing, as some news sources have been reporting) a revamping of the 1982 supernatural horror flick, which was directed by Tobe Hooper and based on an original story conceived by Steven Spielberg.

Raimi, as many reading this are probably well aware of, is also producing a remake of his own 1980s horror cult classic, The Evil Dead. Similarly, MGM is the studio behind the impending Carrie remake/re-interpretation – which has managed to snag a star, director and release date in recent months – and is probably now looking to fast-track Poltergeist for production, considering the big names that’ve been assembled to back the project.

Don't see how they could improve on the original but with more cgi.

Seriously, this is getting to be a bit much now. Someone needs to make a list, including the big wigs in Hollywood, and get samwise to punch them all in the face. Stat!

They want to touch a younger audience because they believe younger people wont go rent or buy a movie they have never heard of.. Especially when it aint on MTV

So they do this.

They could just re-release the originals in HD FORMAT on the big screen
