Following many a rumour of a new 'Poltergeist' flick, MovieHole has picked up some news from Poltergeistiiicom which will respark the rumour mill.
"Mary Parent, who was recently named by MGM as the Chairperson of the Worldwide Motion Picture Group at the studio, gave me an interesting tidbit of info over the weekend. Was she referring to the rumored remake?
Here's my original email to her on March 15th:
Hi Mary, Congratulations on your new position with MGM! I run a fan web site dedicated to MGM's "Poltergeist" franchise. I'd heard that there were plans for either a new sequel or a remake...do you know if this is still the plan? As a huge fan, I was hoping to see a new sequel. Thanks for any information you may be able to provide. Regards, David Furtney
And here's what she wrote back yesterday (emphasis mine):
Hey David- Thanks for the email. Not quite two weeks into the new post so I don’t have a specific update but hopefully going forward there will be more to talk about. In the meantime, thanks for your enthusiasm."
