I have heard thru a few sources that Hilary Duff is to star in a New Poltergeist movie. She will be the older Carol Anne. I hope they don't have as much problems with this movie as with the last few. :eek:

She just signed her death warrant: this movie has a curse upon it. Six of the stars from these movies died deaths that are characterized as mysterious or tragic!

Hilary, we barely knew ye.

Uh, why make a remake to Poltergeist. It's (IMO) the BEST ghost movie ever. A remake can't possibly be made that's even on the same plane as the original.

Didn't she also star in Casper the friendly ghost? She is going to say, "Casper, is that you?" And then hear a voice say, "Your are all going to die!" I don't think she has it for this role.

I think, for me anyways, if they made it darker, more inline with the Exorcist creepyness, it would be good.

Polterguist was my first real horror movie and I didn't really like it that much, and of course Ryan had to get the other three movies in the series and I didn't like them either.
As for Hillary... what is she going to do? Sing at the demons?

I'm sorry everyone that was pointless, just kinda been buggin me, as for the movie I'm going to restate the fact I don't think its going to be that good, very low expectations.

I think you're confusing her with Christina Ricci... that movie came out a while ago. I think Hilary would have been like 5 when Casper came out.

In essence, we're both right. There was (apparently) two Casper movies. What you posted is the cast list for the TV movie "Casper Meets Wendy". Here's the info for the movie you mentioned, "Casper the Friendly Ghost":

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0112642/

Bill Pullman .... Dr. James Harvey
Christina Ricci .... Kathleen 'Kat' Harvey
Cathy Moriarty .... Carrigan Crittenden
Eric Idle .... Paul 'Dibbs' Plutzker
Ben Stein .... Mr. Rugg
Don Novello .... Father
Fred Rogers .... Mr. Rogers (as Mr. Rogers)
Terry Murphy .... Herself ('Hard Copy')
Chauncey Leopardi .... Nicky
Spencer Vrooman .... Andreas
Malachi Pearson .... Casper (McFadden) (voice)
Ernestine Mercer .... Harvey Patient Being Interviewed

Joe Nipote .... Stretch (voice)
Joe Alaskey .... Stinkie (voice)

Who gives a **** about if the Duff is in this or not. She's the epitome of hotness! Her presence can only enhance what IMHO was a lackluster movie in the first place. I am not as enamoured with it as some, and that goddamn dwarf, Tangina, or however the hell you spell her name, annoyed me to no end. This misnamed film is one of the most highly overrated of all-time. Sorry guys, but with the exception of Jaws, Back to the Future and the Indiana Jones films, Speilberg just isn't the cinematic wizard that he has fooled everyone into believing he is. Don't worry though, I don't detest him like I do David Decoteau, the Italian Schlockmeisters, Tim Burton and the unenviable Dr. Boll. :D

But Poltergeist was a Tobe Hooper movie... lol

Though, I must admit, the entire production reeks of Spielberg, so I'd not be surprised if he "ghost directed" it with Hooper being used as a ruse to trick us.

The thing was written, produced and Spielberg is credited with the screenplay. The fact that you mentioned Z, is the very reason I call it a Spielberg film. I am familiar with Hooper's work and this is a far cry different than anything he has put out. I'll bet Tobe only sat in the director's chair, and Speilberg was the one actually calling all the shots. This entire production smacks of Spielberg from start to finish. Tobe Hooper most likely wasn't even on the set most of the time and was director in name only.

Hmm. I love Poltergeist.
And, I think Hilary Duff is hot, hot, hot.:googly:
Wow, it's like two great tastes that taste great together!

That being said, I'll probably skip this flick until it's out on DVD. If Hilary could act, that would probably help. It is easy to see her as an older Heather. But little Heather could out-act Hilary any day.

Biggest question : Will we see the return of Craig T. Nelson?
THAT could make this movie.:p
