David Lindsay-Abaire is currently writing a remake of “Poltergeist,” and it is a project he is very excited about.

Sam Raimi is producing the film in his second recent partnership with Lindsay-Abaire, the first being “Oz the Great and Powerful.” While Lindsay-Abaire was promoting his most recent project, “Rise of the Guardians,” Collider asked the scribe for a status update on “Poltergeist.”

“Well, you know there’s not too much I can say,” Lindsay-Abaire said. “I will say that I handed in a second draft and people are incredibly excited about it. They’re not the director, but they’re in search of a director. I will also say that there are very few people who are as obsessed with the original movie as I am, so I would try to write a script that I would want to see as a fan. I will say that.”

When asked whether he wrote “Poltergeist” towards a PG-13 or an R-rating, Lindsay-Abaire hedged, “What is the original would you say? My version, I will say this, it’s not a gory, horrible, it’s not- it’s tonally similar to the first movie. How about that? And that’s sort of a family-friendly-esque, right? With some real, genuine scares in it. It’s not ‘Saw,’ if that’s what you’re asking. … I’m not trying to turn it into something else.”

Lindsay-Abaire said that his take on “Poltergeist” won’t be all scares, though. He promised there will be some humor there to temper out all the horror, just like in the original.

“That movie also has some much-needed humor in it and some emotion in it, so all of that exists,” he said.

She’ll make do with one of these cards, featuring characters from Portlandia, Maron and Comedy Bang! Bang!. Check them out below, and be good to mom this year.

5 Times Maron’s Dave Anthony Had the Perfect Response

Maron returns May 4th at 9P on IFC.

Posted by on

Dave Anthony, standup and podcaster extraordinaire, has stealthily become a one-liner machine on Maron, playing Marc’s deadpan “frenemy.” While Dave may often say the wrong thing, we always seem to relate to him in some secret, shameful way. Before you catch Dave on the season premiere of Maron this Wednesday, May 4th at 9P, check out a few times it felt like he was living our life — and messing it up just as much as we are.

1. That moment when we realize no one is listening to our podcast.

2. Or when we remember that feelings are just nature’s way of saying it’s time to eat more ice cream.

3. That feeling you get when you realize you’ll do anything if someone else is paying.

4. For those times when we want to fight the power.
