Reliving the horror of the classic 1982 scary movie from notable filmmaker Steven Spielberg, MGM move forward with their plan on remaking "Poltergeist". The studio have now signed a pair of screenwriter Juliet Snowden and Stiles White to make some reworks on the reboot project's script.

This project won't be the two's first horror movie project. In fact, Snowden and White have been known to be the specialists on this movie genre. They are known for their work in Sam Raimi-produced 2005 horror film "Boogeyman". They have recently hired to develop the remake of Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 horror thriller, "The Birds".

Considerably one of the most scariest movies ever made, the original "Poltergeist" tells the creepy story of a family home being haunted by a band of ghosts. Though firstly the spirits appear to be friendly, they soon turn evil putting the family in constant fear and eventually kidnap the family's youngest daughter. Directed by Tobe Hooper, it stars Heather O'Rourke and Dominique Dunne among others.
