Bloody Disgusting are not surprisingly apprehensive about their announcement of an apparent director stepping up for duties on the planned remake of ‘Poltergeist’.

But for all intents and purposes it appears that Vadim Perelman (‘The Life Before Her Eyes’, ‘House of Sand and Fog’) will be bringing the spirits back to the big screen.
‘Poltergeist’, currently being penned by co-writers Michael Grais, Juliet Snowden and Stiles White, is still in the development stages but if this rumour happens to be fact then we can expect to see things start to get rolling on the project.
