Legendary Picks Up “Dark Ghostbusters” Story Spectral

ON

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.
