Gervais and Kinnear Visit Ghost Town


Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear are teaming to star in DreamWorks’ romantic comedy Ghost Town, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Steven Spielberg’s go-to screenwriter David Koepp (War of the Worlds, Indiana Jones 4) will direct from a script he wrote with John Kamps.

The story centers on a dentist who dies briefly during routine dental surgery and gains the ability to see dead people who ask him for help in contacting the living.

The studio is eyeing an October start date.
