World War Z actor James Badge Dale isn’t ready to give up the undead just yet as he’s going from fighting zombies to fighting ghosts in Legendary Pictures’ new horror flick Spectral.
According to The Wrap, Badge Dale is in negotiations to star in the film, which will be directed by Nic Matthieu. The original treatment, which was described as a supernatural Black Hawk Down, was purchased from Ian Fried, though George Nolfi wrote the script with an assist from rewriter John Gatins.
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.
More on this one soon!
