Sony's upcoming remake of MGM's 1982 ghost thriller "Poltergeist", prepping for a September 2013 start in Toronto, will be directed by Gil Kenan ("Monster House"), starring Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris and Rosemarie DeWitt.
The new film focuses on the 'Bowen' family who move into a new home, before things go awry and their daughter 'Madeleine' goes missing. The Bowens then call in a paranormal investigation team led by parapsychologist 'Dr. Brooke Powell'.
The original film, directed by Tobe Hooper and co-written/produced by Steven Spielberg, was set in a California suburb, focusing on a family whose home is invaded by malevolent ghosts that abduct the family's youngest daughter.
