Race Issues Take Light in ‘Meet the Haunteds’

Steve Carr and Rumpus Entertainment and Platinum Studios, one of the largest comic books rights houses that controls an international library of more than 5,600 comic book characters, have partnered to bring Platinum Studios’ graphic novel “Meet the Haunteds” to the big screen. Meet the Haunteds tells the story of a white family that moves in to a house haunted by black ghosts that have been there since the 1970s. The “Meet the Haunteds” graphic novel is scheduled to be published in 2011. “‘Meet the Haunteds’ is a perfect set up for social commentary on everything from race issues to family problems,” said Carr. “This is another wonderful property from Platinum Studios which is turning itself into the go-to independent comic book company.” Carr directed Paul Blart: Mall Cop, Daddy Day Care, and Next Friday.
