Amblin and Universal apparently both have their eyes set on a new Casper, the Friendly Ghost feature film, the rights of which are now owned by Classic Media who hope to reboot the franchise, reports Indiewire. However, don’t expect any hackneyed direct-to-video features. Instead, the studio has their minds made up that the relaunch will set its sail for the silver screen and as with every feature it seems nowadays, talk of 3D has already been knocked around. While any story has yet to hit the page, reports believe that the film may follow in the footsteps of the 2009 comic “Casper and the Spectrals,” which brought new life to the famed apparition tale with hopes of wrangling in a whole new audience.
