Word has broken from MGM about their proposed remake of the classic film Poltergeist. The studio has slated the film for release on November 24, 2010, just in time for Thanksgiving weekend. Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) is attached to direct.
The original classic from Spielberg and Tobe Hooper had a 5-year-old Heather O’Rourke playing Carol Anne, an innocent child who unconsciously stirs spirits and an evil entity from the forgotten graveyard below her house. She is a highly intuitive child and shares an eerie and unexplained psychic connection to the spirit world. Unfortunately for her, Carol Anne’s life force has attracted the attention of the restless souls, who engage her in small talk and pleasant conversation – through the television!
How faithful will this remake be? Will the dreaded Poltergeist Curse rear its head? Guess we’ll find out soon enough!
