While fans of his Happy Death Day franchise are undoubtedly hoping for a third movie, Christopher Landon has clearly moved on. Last year he gave us the body-swapping horror-comedy Freaky, and now Landon is keeping it funny with We Have a Ghost, a Netflix film that is boasting his most star-powered cast yet.
A pair of Marvel actors have joined the We Have a Ghost Cast as production gears up. THR says contemporaries Captain America Anthony Mackie and Red Guardian David Harbour are on board, along with Army of the Dead‘s Tig Notaro, Charm City Kings star Jahi Di’Allo Winston, plus Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie), Erica Ash (Uncle Drew), Isabella Russo (Crashing), Niles Fitch (This is Us), Faith Ford (Murphy Brown), and Steve Coulter (Shotgun Wedding).
Landon will direct and write We Have a Ghost, which centers on a family who discover their home is haunted by a ghost named Ernest. Rather than freaking out like normal people, they use the ghost to become overnight social media sensations. When the son, Kevin (Winston) takes Ernest to investigate the spirit’s past, they become targets of the CIA. The film is based on a short story by Geoff Manaugh.
