“POLTERGEIST” gets Parapsychologist in Jane AdamsMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
It seems Gil Kenan’s upcoming redo of the Tobe Hooper/Steven Spielberg great will find room for both a “Haunted House Cleaner” and a parapsychologist. The former, already announced with Jared Harris starring sounds something of a reality TV showboat. Will the latter, played by HUNG star Jane Adams (seen above in Joe Swanberg’s ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY), be an earnest counterpart?
Adams joins Harris, Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt in the tale of the Bowen family, who’s assaulted by an entity that kidnaps their daughter. David Lindsay-Abaire scripts the remake, Kenan directs. [THR]
