Sam Raimi has come on to produce MGM's upcoming remake of Poltergeist. Despite rumors, he will not be directing the film, but he will help lead the hunt for a director. Hit the jump for more.
The Poltergeist remake has been in the works for a while now. David Lindsay-Abaire, who wrote the script for Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful is also taking a stab at Poltergeist. If the new film keeps with the old, it will follow a family haunted by an evil spirit when their house is built on an Indian burial ground. Hopefully, this flick will not also carry the alleged Poltergeist curse.
