The director of 'House of Sand and Fog' has been confirmed to be in talks to helm 'Poltergeist' remake.
"House of Sand and Fog" helmer Vadim Perelman is one step closer to tackle the "Poltergeist" remake. Rumored earlier that he has been considered to come aboard the reboot of the 1982 horror movie classic, the Academy Award-nominee has been confirmed to be in negotiations with MGM to helm the project.
If he were indeed signed in, Perelman will be collaborating with screenwriters Juliet Snowden and Stiles White since the scribe pair have been hired weeks earlier to revamp the horror movie. On his other movie projects, previous report has noted that he has been attached to "Atlas Shrugged", an adaptation movie from Ayn Rand's novel starring Angelina Jolie.
The original "Poltergeist" movie has been directed by Tobe Hooper and starred by Heather O'Rourke and Dominique Dunne among others. Centering the story on the haunting of a suburban family home by evil spirits, it was released on June 4, 1982 and is the most successful installment of the "Poltergeist" films.
