Rosemarie DeWitt First To Sign Onto POLTERGEIST Remake Cast

RosemarieDeWittMGM’s announced remake of Poltergeist has found its first cast member in the form of Rosemarie DeWitt. The Promised Land star will be playing the matriarch of a family struggling to make ends meet who move into a home haunted by spirits who take exception to them being there.

The studio has been developing the remake for several years in conjunction with Sam Raimi as a producer on the project. Monster House director Gil Kenan will be behind the camera on the film, working from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire which reportedly is more of a character-oriented piece than director Toby Hooper’s 1981 original film.
