Legendary Picks Up “Dark Ghostbusters” Story Spectral


New York’s in trouble again

Ian Fried has sold Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures on his story Spectral.

The Hollywood Reporter says it’s a “dark” and “gritty” take on the Ghostbusters formula.

In Spectral, a special ops force – trained in hunting the supernatural – go up against ghosts that have taken over Manhattan.

Fried got some Hollywood attention over the summer when his Florence Nightingale and Jack the Ripper script, Gaslight, made the rounds.
