I hope you’re not tired of me complaining about the remake of Poltergeist, because I’m not even close to finished, and the movie doesn’t hit screens until next year.

Poltergeist is still one of my favorite films and I can’t imagine a remake will be able to come close to the brilliance of the original. How about we take all the energy that’s been wasted complaining about Ben Affleck as Batman and redirect it where it needs to be, on stopping this awful idea of remaking a classic film!

But I digress…

I told you in July that Rosemarie DeWitt nabbed the female lead in the Poltergeist remake no one asked for, and now we have some info on another lead role.

Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes) has landed a part in the film.

From Deadline:

Harris will play Carrigan, a larger than life TV personality »

- Philip Sticco
