Fox is shuffling its summer release schedule, moving MGM’s reboot of “Poltergeist” forward two months to May 22 and shifting Melissa McCarthy comedy “Spy” back two weeks to June 5.

Poltergeist” is directed by “Monster House” helmer Gil Kenan with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Roy Lee producing. Sam Rockwell, Jared Harris and Rosemarie DeWitt star in the reboot in which a family struggling to make ends meet relocates to an outdated suburban home and is confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter.

MGM released a trio of “Poltergeist” titles during the ’80s. The first film was produced by Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall and starred Craig T. Nelson and Jobeth Williams as parents terrorized by ghosts who communicate with their youngest daughter through the TV set.

Spy” is directed by Paul Feig with McCarthy portraying a CIA analyst who goes undercover to infiltrate the world of an arms dealer when her partner (played by Jude Law) disappears.
