‘Spectral’ Pitches as a Dark ‘Ghostbusters’

Legendary Pictures is going ghost-busting, picking up the supernatural action project Spectral from writer Ian Fried, writes Heat Vision.

The premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural. Sources say the pitch, which sold for six figures, has been described as a darker and more serious take on a Ghostbusters-like story, with a plot that revolves around a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. Locations and details might change over the course of the writing, however.

Fried worked up a treatment and made a presentation involving a “rip reel,” a mash-up of scenes from other movies that showed the Warner Bros.-based Legendary what the tone, story beats and visual style would be.
