Fans are getting their first look at the upcoming remake of the iconic film ‘Poltergeist’. New images of the film have been released, along with an interview with the filmmakers.
In a USA Today exclusive, director Gil Kenan and producer Sam Raimi said that they plan to stick with key aspects of the original but update it to contemporary standard. This may come as good news to horror fans who have expressed negative thoughts to the classic being remade.
“Whenever someone approaches material that’s so beloved, there’s a reflexive reaction to be worried,” says Kenan. “It’s a responsibility we take very seriously. We’re working to make a Poltergeist film that lives up to the original’s legacy.”
