Michael Grais, who wrote and produced the second “Poltergeist” movie, and penned the first. And now, according to the man himself, he’s writing a fourth “Poltergeist” movie called “Poltergeist: In the Shadows”.
Nobody has asked Grais to write it. Nobody has bought the script either. He’s doing it off his own back, in an attempt to revive the series over at MGM. Will it happen? Hard to say – but it’ll at least be read, because he – unlike many of you that send your own “Batman”, “Die Hard” and “Ferris Bueller” sequel scripts to the studios – already has his foot in the door.
But more so, Grais’ sequel script is likely to be very good – considering he wrote the first two “Poltergeist” movies.
