We’ve been hearing about a remake of the 1982 Tobe Hooper-directed and Steven Spielberg-produced horror classic Poltergeist for quite some time now, but, unlike a bunch of other MGM remakes, haven’t yet seen it go into production.

The remake is being produced by The Evil Dead director Sam Raimi (who’s also a producer on the remake of his own movie, Evil Dead), and now MGM has found their director.

Gil Kenan, who’s best known for directing the dark computer animated performance capture feature Monster House, has been chosen to helm the Poltergeist remake.

Poltergeist tells the story of a family who’s tormented by the many spirits that inhabit their home, which is built on an old Indian burial ground.

In addition to Monster House, Kenan also directed the 2008 adaptation City of Ember, which didn’t fare so well critically or financially.

He also has a movie titled A Giant set up with The Henson Company and Lava Bear.
