Legendary Picks Up “Dark Ghostbusters ” Story Spectral


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

Heat Vision 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.
