Craig T. Nelson of Parenthood played the part of the real-estate developer and father in the original, and, since Wilson has plenty of experience being chased down by ghosts from his work in the Insidious films and, most recently, The Conjuring, we think he'd be the perfect fit.

Every horror movie today needs a surly teenage daughter, right? Ashley Rickards of Awkward fame could nail the part of the teen daughter in the film and give it her own modern-day twist.

The star of The Odd Life of Timothy Green proved that he had acting chops (and the ability to make us cry) so we think he could definitely hold his own playing the middle child in the remake of this horror classic. Just watch out for any haunted trees, CJ.
