In Hollywood’s never ending quest to remake any foreign film that it possibly can for English speaking audiences too lazy to read subtitles, we’ve got another on the horizon. Read on. Or don’t. Other than what the movie is you’ve heard it all before.
Variety reports that Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment is materializing on Ghost Graduation, setting up a remake of the Spanish comedy at Fox.
Overbrook, operated by Smith, James Lassiter and Ken Stovitz, closed its producing deal Friday. The banner is looking to hire a writer to pen the adaptation, but there’s no plan for Smith to star.
With elements of Ghost, The Breakfast Club and The Sixth Sense, the story centers on a teacher with paranormal abilities who helps a group of ghosts confined to the high school where they died years earlier in a fire.
The Spanish film, Promocion Fantasma, was directed by Javier Ruiz Caldera and released earlier this year. Gary Glushon is overseeing for Overbrook.
Two words: Hell. Naw.
