Sam Raimi Directing The Poltergeist Remake

The remake of vintage haunted house picture, Poltergeist has been scripted by David Lindsay-Abaire, the playwright and screenwriter behind Rabbit Hole and the upcoming Oz, The Great and Powerful and Rise of the Guardians. I’d call myself a fan. If you haven’t seen his film of Rabbit Hole, I’d recommend you start there.

And, yes I’d find anything he’s working on interesting – but Poltergeist is shaping up to be even better than that. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Lindsay-Abaire said that his take on the story will be directed by his Oz collaborator, Sam Raimi.

Previously, Raimi was known to be producing the film but was not believed to be taking the director’s chair.

It’s a potent combination. If Lindsay-Abaire can bring the strong sense of family dynamics and drama that this story could really benefit from, Raimi could certainly bring the spookshow stuff. There will be plenty of new stuff to say about suburbia, and families’ relationships to TV too.

As remakes go, this is one I’m very actively excited about. Heck, as in-development films go, this one’s got my attention just as much as any other.
