In 2019 we told you about a possible remake / reboot of Poltergeist.
the horror film directed in 1982 by Tobe Hooper , which has already returned to the big screen in 2015 with a remake directed by Gil Kenan .
Years later, the news is back and this time it is related to the merger of Amazon Studios and MGM . As revealed by Jeff Sneider in his podcast The Hot Mic, a reboot of Poltergeist could soon see the light and would be a priority for Amazon.
Steven Spielberg could pose a problem
But there is a problem: such a project could need the involvement of Steven Spielberg , producer (and according to many also co-director) of the original film. This could be an obstacle to getting the official green light.
As always we will keep you updated.
