Gil's a sharp guy with a great vision, so I'm sure he'll do well with the material. Casting Rosemarie DeWitt was a stroke of genius because she has a similar aesthetic to JoBeth Williams.
And if Sam Rockwell comes aboard, look out.
Thing about Poltergeist is that it wasn't just scary, but it was also fun in a roller-coaster kind of way. Tough to duplicate that without a feeling that you're just ripping off the original (I know it's a remake, but needs to be different).
