First announced in 2011, Chris Columbus’ upcoming remake of the Korean supernatural comedy Hello Ghost has found its lead. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Adam Sandler will headline the Universal Pictures production.
The original film, which was released in 2010, arrived from writer/director Kim Young-Tak and told the story of a young man whose failed suicide attempt gives him the power to see ghosts. Rediscovering his love for life and falling for a nurse, the man realizes that the only way to rid himself of four ghosts is to help each of them achieve their final wish.
Sandler, who starred last year in That’s My Boy and Hotel Transylvania, will soon be back on the big screen in his first-ever sequel, Grown Ups 2.
