Rumour Has It – Sam Raimi Directing ‘Poltergeist’ Remake?

First THR reported it, then INDIEWIRE queried it and now I’m jumping on the band wagon with the rumour that Sam Raimi (Drag Me To Hell, Evil Dead 1-3, Spider-Man 1-3, Oz The Great & Powerful), who was already on board as Producer, is going to direct the reboot of POLTERGEIST. Is it a good idea? Well having Raimi in the helm means it’ll be a wildly fun ride but my question is – does POLTERGEIST need to be remade? It’s a superfluous question anywho cause it’s happening.
