Jane Adams has joined the cast of Gil Kenan's upcoming horror reboot Poltergeist. We /poltergeist-adds-saxon-sharbino/reported that Saxon Sharbino was confirmed as Kendra Bowen yesterday.

The project stars Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt and Jared Harris and centers on a family that is visited by a ghost. The supernatural being appears to be friendly at first, but ends up kidnapping their youngest daughter. Jane Adams will be playing a parapsychologist, who is tasked with finding their daughter and identifying the ghostly presence in the home.

Gil Kenan will be directing from a script by Juliet Snowden, Stiles White and David Lindsay-Abaire.
