Forget that stupid, half-working fan site that’s always dissing us for covering this remake, but I assure you all that THIS REMAKE WILL HAPPEN no matter what some moron writes on his blog. Today we learned that Mandate Pictures, which is now owned by Lionsgate, is officially attempting to acquire the remake rights to Steven Spielberg’s Poltergeist. After checking in with multiple sources we learned that the deal is yet to be completed and if Mandate does in fact receive the rights, it does not mean that it will be released via Lionsgate. Watch for any updates as we’ll keep you posted. In Tobe Hooper’s film a young family are visited by ghosts in their home. At first the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, then they turn nasty and start to terrorise the family before they “kidnap” the youngest daughter.
