MGM and Fox 2000 have cast the eldest of the three Bowen for Poltergeist. The Touch’s Saxon Sharbino will play Kendra. Sharbino will join Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt for the update on the horror classic.
Here is a breakdown of her character: “Sharbino's Kendra is a typical teen, isolating herself from her family to focus on her friendships. But when she realizes that her new home feeds on the isolation of others, she must band together with her family to help save her youngest sibling”.
Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (Evil Dead) are producing the remake/ reboot via their Ghost House Pictures banner. Gil Kenan (City of Ember) is directing the film.
Poltergeist is slated for a 2014 release.
