Poltergeist Reboot Scrapped, Will There Be A Sequel Instead??

| Filed under: Film Flickers

This is a WAY better idea, dontcha think??

The Poltergeist reboot has thankfully been scrapped.

According to sources, MGM plans to go back to their original idea of making a sequel, making a fourth film that will follow a "broken Stephen Freeling and the spites that tore his family apart."

With the Nightmare on Elm Street reboot failing pretty hardcore, it seems like MGM may have learned their lesson and has decided to return the franchise's characters rather than creating a reboot.

We're digging the idea. What do U think??

    I wish people would stop being so FUCKING LAZY and think of a new movie!!!

    If they wrote the script, made the film, but didn't attach the poltergiest name to it, I'd want to watch it more. It's blatantly going to be very Paranormal Activity anyway.



  3. 3

    going to be kinda hard considering TWO of the original children are dead.

    little blond girl by liver disease and the older sister was murdered by her boyfriend.

    Re: Carlo Wally Rob Beecroft – you mean with better acting…oh wait..paranormal activity was suppose to be a documentary..

    (throws up a little)

    It depends how they will explain the absense of Carol Anne and the oldest daughter. The oldest daughter won't be hard to skirt around but Carol Anne is a different story. Will they say she died, or replace her with a different actress?

    poltergeist should be a classic. the sequels destroyed it's image a lot… another installment will only do worse… and btw, how many of the actors from the movie actually died? 2 or 3 of them, right?



  7. 7

    DAYUM!! There's going to be a lot of sequels and remakes and biopics in the years ahead. We're running out of originality.



  8. 8

    Isn't there supposedly a curse surrounding this movie?



  9. 9

    Craig T. Nelson is probably too big of a star now to do this. LOL

    Re: Alycat27 – she's already dead and everyone knows it.

    In regards to "A Nightmare on Elm Street," I wouldn't call a movie that made 115 million worldwide on a 35 million dollar budget as "failing pretty hardcore."

    Enough of the remakes. Is their no originality left in this world? Have all the creative juices run dry and all we are left with is repeating the same stuff over and over? Poltergeist was awesome the first time around and needs to be left alone.

    Ahhhh just leave it alone already! That poor little girl is dead, and a new one just won't be the same with a new actress or even Carol Ann as an adult.

    Re: YRUFATT – NO THE LIL GIRL DIED FROM A FREEK BLOCKED INTESTINE ! JEEEZE RIP CAROL ANNE! DO NOT RE MAKE ANY POLTER MOVIEZ PLEASE!!!

    I never watch remakes. You can't beat the original here.



  17. 17

    thank god!! the nightmare on elm street remake was a nightmare! LOLZ



  18. 18

    i don't know why you all get your panties in a bunch over remakes. If you don't want to see it, don't. it's that easy. Why are you so righteous about this?



  19. 19

    they need to stop that film is cursed!



  20. 20

    IN what world did the nightmare on elm st reboot fail???



  21. 21

    YRUFATT, I meant as far as the film goes, how they would explain Carol Anne not being there, or if she would be replaced. Obviously we all know Heather is dead. In the last Poltergeist Carol Anne was still alive. They would have to either replace her or say she is dead in the movie because she WAS Poltergeist. She was the star.
