Rosemarie DeWitt to star in Poltergeist remake


Rosemarie DeWitt has signed on to star in the upcoming remake of Poltergeist, apparently because she has never Googled ‘the Poltergeist curse’ before.

According to Deadline, she will take on the role originally played by JoBeth Williams in Tobe Hooper’s 1982 original; the mother of a family whose house comes under attack from the spirit world.

MGM and Fox 2000 are still looking for an actor to take on the part of the father, formerly inhabited by Craig T. Nelson.

Gil Kenan (who, fittingly, previously helmed Monster House) will direct a script by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Stay safe, Rosemarie!
