More casting news for the remake of Poltergeist, which is shooting now in Toronto, has arrived as Jane Adams (“Hung”) has joined the flick as a parapsychologist called in to help the family find their daughter and identify the supernatural forces at work in their home.
Adams joins the previously announced Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Jared Harris, Saxon Sharbino, and Kyle Catlett.
The story follows the Bowens (Rockwell and DeWitt), whose life is suddenly disrupted after a supernatural force takes over their home and begins terrorizing them.
Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), a division of MGM Holdings Inc., has partnered with Fox 2000 Pictures, a division of Twentieth Century Fox, to co-finance and distribute Poltergeist.
Gil Kenan (Monster House) directs from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz: The Great and Powerful). The film is produced by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (The Possession) via Ghost House Pictures along with Roy Lee (The Strangers). Nathan Kahane (The Grudge) serves as executive producer.
In a revisionist take on the classic horror film, a family struggling to make ends meet relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of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.
