Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner to Adapt Ghost for the Small Screen

November 12, 2013


Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner are set to bring director Jerry Zucker's Ghost to the small screen. The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the writing pair will turn the supernatural romance into a pilot for Paramount TV.

Released in 1990, Ghost stars Patrick Swayze as Sam Wheat, a man who, after being killed by a mugger, returns to the woman he loves (Demi Moore's Molly Jensen) in spectral form.

Goldsman, who won an Academy Award for his work on Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind, will soon make his directing debut with Winter's Tale, starring Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Russell Crowe.

Pinkner, meanwhile, has written for small screen series like "Alias," "Lost" and "Fringe." He's also done work on the upcoming Marc Webb sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
