Sam Rockwell in Talks for "Poltergeist" Reboot

Posted: August 6th, 2013 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Sam Rockwell in Talks for "Poltergeist" RebootSubmit Comment
We've been hearing about a reboot of "Poltergeist" for many years, but now it seems that the film is actually moving forward. The Wrap has learned that MGM is in talks with Sam Rockwell to play the lead.

Rockwell is currently considering several projects, but has expressed interest in "Poltergeist." If a deal is made, Rockwell will play the patriarch of the Bowen family, whose daughter Madison is abducted by supernatural forces.

The new movie will be directed by Gil Kenan (Monster House) from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful). Rosemarie DeWitt co-stars and Sam Raimi is producing.

He plays a loveable psycho so well I can't really see him in this role. Plus I hate pointless remakes.

Don't do it Sam, don't do it.

Enough with the remakes already.

Rockwell should do a white man spoof of that early 80's radio hit "Somebody's Watching Me".

As for the news, look, it's Rockwell. The dude doesn't often take sh*tty rolls, so maybe there's more here than anyone in the public knows...

The director made that terribly unscary animated film Monster House, though, so there goes my hopes this one will be helmed by a talented manipulator of the human psyche, such as James Wan...

Hopefully he'll get the Poltergeist Curse before he knocks up Leslie Bibb

Rockwell is awesome. He'd be great in the father role, or put him in a dress and let him play the Zelda Rubenstein role

I like Rockwell, but only recently got a chance to see poltergeist. I thought it was piss poor.
