Looking to breathe some new life into a project it’s high on, Legendary Pictures (Godzilla, Pacific Rim) has brought Jayson Rothwell (The White Devil, Invaders) to rewrite the supernatural thriller Spectral, Variety reports.
Ian Fried wrote the original draft of the pic, described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down. Remaining plot details are being kept under wraps. The original announcement, although, revealed that the premise of the project is centered on a modern-day, militaristic and gritty approach to fighting the supernatural. Sources said the pitch had 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.
Though the project does not even have producers, sources say Legendary Pictures founder and chief, Thomas Tull loves the concept and is very much behind getting this film up and running.
