Adam Sandler Takes the Lead in Director Chris Columbus' ‘Hello Ghost’

Adam Sandler takes the lead in Hello GhostAdam Sandler is taking the lead in Hello Ghost, director Chris Columbus' supernatural comedy based on the Korean smash hit of the same name.

The story follows a suicidal man, who, after a failed attempt at killing himself, is plagued by the arrival of four wayward ghosts. The man must grant each of them one wish before they will leave his life, and let him continue living his.

Admission writer Karen Croner penned the screenplay for the remake, with CJ Entertainment, the company behind the original, co-producing.

The film doesn't currently have a set start date, and its unclear if Chris Columbus will direct Pixels first, also under Adam Sandler's production banner Happy Madison, or if Hello Ghost will take precedence now that Adam Sandler is on board. The comedic actor is currently in the midst of shooting Blended, a romantic comedy that reunites him for a third time on-screen with Drew Barrymore.

Hello Ghost is in development .
