UPDATE: MGM Puts ‘Poltergeist’ Release Date on Hold

Update: MGM contacted to us to let us know that the film will go into production in early 2010, so the film just couldn’t have been done in time for the November release. For those of you who would rather jump off a bridge than see a remake of Poltergeist, it appears MGM might have put things on hold. The studio pulled the film from its planned November 24, 2010 release and bumped it to an undetermined 2011. Vadim Perelman (House of Sand and Fog) was set to go behind the camera (BD; August 28, 2008). The film tells the story of a suburban home built over an Indian burial ground and thus inhabited by a nasty spook. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White penned the current draft.
