The Wrap report that the awesome Sam Rockwell is in talks to star as the head of the Bowen family, alongside Rosemarie DeWitt who would play his wife, in MGM and Fox 2000's remake of Tobe Hooper's Poltergeist. Apparently Rockwell is the studio's "top choice" for the role but is currently weighing several offers and hasn't decided to sign on yet -- but he is said to be "intrigued by the prospect of a lead role in a studio movie produced by horror maestro Sam Raimi." The original film scared the bejesus out of an entire generation of movie-goers, and although parts of it have dated now it's still a very effective little horror flick. Monster House director Gil Kenan will helm the remake from a script by OZ: The Great And Powerful scribe David Lindsay-Abaire.
