Back in April a story started circling the net that Sam Raimi was thinking about remaking Poltergeist. The Hollywood Reporter quickly put out a story that Raimi was only producing the flick. Now THR has changed its tune once again.

In a new article just posted on THR, we found this little nugget of information. Apparently David Lindsay-Abair is writing a script for a remake of Poltergeist to be directed by Sam Raimi. What gives? No clue. We’ll find out soon enough, though, that’s for sure.

The Poltergeist reimagining originally had Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) attached to direct, but then money woes at MGM slowed everything down to a grinding halt on the flick.

    Raimi for Poltergeist? If he is allowed to go all out balls to the wall, this will be amazing.

    Theve been talking about a Poltergeist remake for years. Much like Carrie and Robocop, bad idea. And as for Sam Raimi possibly directing, its bad enough hes ruining his own masterpiece Evil Dead. I really hope this is a bad rumor.
