"Poltergeist" Remake Hires "Monster House" Director

Posted: March 7th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Poltergeist" Remake Hires "Monster House" DirectorSubmit Comment
About a year ago, it was announced that Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) has signed on to produce the upcoming "Poltergeist" remake. Then came word that Raimi decided to direct the film, which is written by David Lindsay-Abaire, who also wrote Raimi's "Oz The Great and Powerful."

And now it's been confirmed that Gil Kenan has been hired to direct "Poltergeist," which means that Raimi is once again only producing. Kenan is the man behind another haunted house film, the animated "Monster House."

The original 1982 film was written by Steven Spielberg and focuses on a family whose house was built on a holy site and whose daughter is taken by ghosts. It spawned two sequels, "Poltergeist II: The Other Side" in 1986 and "Poltergeist III" in 1988.

@pornfly

How about a remake of Kimís sex tape instead? Co-starring me. And unlike that dumb sh*t, Ray J, Iíll make that bitch c*m for real.

Oh, and there can be ghost and stuff, too.

Monster House was a surprisingly good movie. I'm willing to give this a chance.

I like Raimi. I also found Monster House to be a very creative family film, I'll give it a shot.

I really liked Monster House, but I hate film remakes. Not sure how to feel on this one.
