They're herrrrrre!And they're being remaaaaaaaade!!! The Poltergeist remake has found two screenwriters willing to build their story on ancient (circa. 1982) screenplay burial ground. Juliet Snowden and Stiles White will be taking the Freelings through their latest encounter with ghosts who pull little girls into the TV. The original is a classic that still scares me (I hate clowns...) and I'm disgusted that this is even being considered. Especially since, according to an episode of True Hollywood Story, the Poltergeist series is cursed. Since I can't stop them from making it, I can at least hope CNN's kidnap-happy Nancy Grace has a cameo.
Get ready for some Intolerable Cruelty to animals! Or rather, from animals. Rumor has it that the man who stares at goats may soon be running for his life from seagulls, as George Clooney has supposedly been tapped to star in the remake of The Birds. This makes the movie a lot more tolerable for Rod Taylor, who starred in the original version. That doesn't mean he likes it, but he swears he'll withhold judgment now that Clooney's rumored (though not attached... yet).
