Ben Stiller is set to star in the supernatural comedy RentaGhost, which Fox has recently acquired from Warner Bros. In its WB incarnation, Russell Brand was slated to play the lead.
Written by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at the Museum), RentaGhost revolves around a recently deceased man who decides to be more productive in his afterlife than he was during his regular life. He launches a service which allows living folk to rent ghosts and other paranormal beings. The story is based on a children’s BBC series than ran from 1976 to 1984.
Stiller’s been keeping fairly busy as of late. His next onscreen appearance will be in next month’s Tower Heist, directed by Brett Ratner. He is currently filming Neighborhood Watch with Vince Vaughn and Jonah Hill, and is slated to reunite with his Greenberg director Noah Baumbach for While We’re Young. [Variety]
