Poll: If there were to be a Poltergeist remake, who would star as the dad? (39 votes)

Nicolas Cage 44%
John Cusack 21%
William H Macy 8%
Jeff Goldblum 28%

My personal choice would go to Nicolas Cage, only because it would be hilarious to see him try and do a movie like this again.

I have bad/good news for you. They are working on a Poltergeist remake. You're welcome.

Taylor Lautner.

I also would like to say...don't remake Poltergeist. Evil Dead looks fantastic but that's because they went a different direction with it. There's only a few directions you can go with a premise like Poltergeist and Paranormal Activity is using some of them with relative success. Just leave Poltergeist alone. At least until loooong after Paranormal Activity has run its course.

No, but he-so-old he'd have to play the ghost.
