MONSTER HOUSE Director Gil Kenan to Tackle POLTERGEIST Remake

They’re Here… Again!

‘Monster House’ and ‘City of Ember’ director Gil Kenan has been tapped by MGM to step behind the camera for a remake of the horror classic ‘Poltergeist,’ according to Deadline.

Directed by Tobe Hooper and co-written and produced by Steven Spielberg, the 1982 original starred Craig T. Nelson and Jobeth Williams as the parents of a normal family whose dream house turns into a nightmare when it is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family’s youngest daughter.

The update will be produced by Sam Raimi, Nathan Kahane, and Roy Lee.
