Hopefully this rental service is better than Netflix! Ha!
We've just learned that Ben Stiller has signed on to star in Fox's RentaGhost, which was originally a Warner Bros project that had Russell Brand attached.
The movie is being written by Night at the Museum screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, and it's based on a BBC series that ran from 1976 to 1984.
Here's how the series has been described:
"It centers on a recently deceased 27-year-old man who, determined to be more productive in the afterlife, creates RentaGhost, leasing ghouls, ghosts and other specters to the living."
Just as long as Ben doesn't change the name of his service to QwikGhost, we'd say he should be in good shape with this one! LOLz!
Will U go see RentaGhost when it comes out?
