New news on casting.

I don't know how I feel about this remake...
I just found out about it now and I don't think it's necessary at all.
Sam Rockwell? Wow, this news just improved.

Why not remake old movies that sucked? Poltergeist doesn't need a remake it's a fantastic movie. Is it really necessary to remake this film, why?

They couldn't even get the name of the actress who played Carole Ann right so I take this with a huge grain of salt. That said, I don't think there's any way to improve on the original.

Seriously, I nearly spit my coffee. Worst written piece of news this year so far.

uhhh...Poltergeist is totally a horror movie. Sure it has that Spielberg touch to it, but it's definitely horror.

I said it's not straight up horror not that's it's not horror at all. It has that family vibe Speilburge is known for.

It looks like they just quoted Sam Rockwell as saying that. But I guess it's just as bad that they didn't correct it though.

...and Tobe Hooper was the caterer. He served some mean BBQ on the set I hear.

Poltergeist was a PG. This new Poltergeist is PG-13. With the likes of Indidious being PG-13 I'm not worried..... Yet.

Well Poltergeist would have been PG-13 as would have Gremlins and other Spielberg movies (although I know he didn't direct Poltergeist) - that is one reason Spielberg was a big pusher of the PG-13 rating as he felt some of his movies should have been put in that category had it existed at the time

I totally agree with the MPAA being very lax on Speilberg. Wasn't it Temple of Doom that garnered the first PG-13?

It was PG, but it ushered the PG-13 rating in. I saw a sneak preview of this as a kid (4th grade) and when Mola Ram did the heart-grab I was floored… I had seen much more violent stuff but it seemed more shocking in the context of an Indiana Jones movie.
