MGM and Fox 2000’s horror reboot of Poltergeist is rounding out the Bowen family as “Touch” actress Saxon Sharbino, pictured, has been cast as 16-year-old Kendra Bowen, the eldest of the three Bowen children, reports THR.
City of Ember‘s Gil Kenan is directing the project from a script by David Lindsay-Abaire.
“The story follows the Bowens as their home is terrorized and their youngest child goes missing when a supernatural force takes over their home.”
Sharbino’s Kendra is a typical teen, isolating herself from her family to focus on her friendships. But when she realizes that her new home feeds on the isolation of others, she must band together with her family to help save her youngest sibling.
Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt set to star as the Bowen parents.
Filming began on Sept 23 in Toronto.
Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert are producing via their Ghost House Pictures banner with Roy Lee. Nathan Kahane is executive producing.
