Last month, we reported that shooting on Gil Kenan‘s remake of Poltergeist was set to begin in Toronto this September. Today, MGM and Fox 2000 have sent out a press release announcing that they’ll co-finance the picture, and it will indeed shoot this fall. Per the press release, “In a revisionist take on the classic horror film, a family struggling to make ends meet relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.” David Lindsay-Abaire (Oz the Great and Powerful) wrote the script.
Hit the jump for the press release. With a fall start date, Poltergeist will probably arrive in theaters sometime in 2014.
