Here’s some more info on that Poltergeist remake (or is it?)
We have not reported much about the updates to the new POLTERGEIST film, so why not do so right now?
The film is said to be not exactly a remake but a sequel of sorts with a new family being terrorised by there might be ties to the original film. So it’ll be a haunting film and all of that but not a direct remake. Kind of makes me feel a bit more optimistic about it, but we shall see.
The cast has been announced with Rosemarie DeWitt, Sam Rockwell, Kyle Catlett, Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino and Jane Adams.
DeWitt and Rockwell will play the couple, with Kyle Catlett and Saxon Sharbino will play the children, there is said to be three children. Harris will play “Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality who left the world of academia behind to become the star host of basic cable TV show Haunted House Cleaners” and Jane Adams will play a parapsychologist.
In all that is all pretty solid. The synopsis for this one is apparently …
In a revisionist take on the classic horror film, a family struggling to make ends meet relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.
Sounds awfully familiar …
