THR is hearing that Adam Sandler is set to lead Chris Columbus’ remake of the South Korean supernatural comedy ‘Hello Ghost.’
Directed by Young-Tak Kim, the 2010 original centres on a depressed man whose failed suicide attempts result in him being haunted by four ghosts: a chain-smoking cab driver, an old man, a young kid with an insatiable sweet tooth, and a constantly crying woman. In order to rid himself of the spirits, the man must fulfil their requests.
Screenwriter Karen Croner (‘Admission’) is behind the remake’s script. Sandler’s Happy Madison co-produce the project with Columbus’ 1492 Pictures. Miky Lee of CJ Entertainment is executive producer.
