Sam Raimi Produces “Poltergeist” Remake

Sam Raimi is set to produce the remake of the 1982 supernatural horror classic “Poltergeist” at MGM reports Heat Vision.

Like the original, the story focuses on a family whose house was built on a holy site and whose daughter is taken by ghosts. David Lindsay-Abaire (“Oz: The Great and Powerful”) is working on the script,

Raimi is not directing the remake but will help in the search for a helmer. It’s one of two remakes MGM is working on at present, the other being “Carrie”, while Raimi is producing a remake of his own 80’s horror classic “Evil Dead”.
