Teen queen Hilary Duff is set to scare her fans as the possible star of the next Poltergeist movie.

The actress/singer is the frontrunner to take over the role of the spooky CAROL ANNE FREELING from late child star HEATHER O'ROURKE in new movie POLTERGEIST: KAYERI.

Craig T Nelson has reportedly already signed on to reprise his role as STEPHEN FREELING, but movie insiders claim the project has stalled for the moment, following the sale of Mgm to Sony.
