From Hollywood Reporter:
Billy Campbell has joined Tea Leoni, Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear in the romantic comedy "Ghost Town" for DreamWorks and Spyglass Entertainment.
The story centers on a dentist who dies briefly during routine dental surgery and gains the ability to see dead people who ask him for help in contacting the living. Campbell will play the love interest of Leoni’s character, a widow whose deceased husband-turned-ghost (Kinnear) is trying to thwart her imminent marriage.
Holy shit, I’ve never heard a story so unique! It sounds almost just like The Sixth Sense, Beetlejuice, What Lies Beneath, Ghost, The Eye, and Stir of Echoes… but not! Who’s directing this? David Koepp, the guy who wrote Stir of Echoes! (He also wrote the remake of War of the Worlds, which was… uh… really… uh… good.)
I know what you’re thinking: Lance, Lance, Lance, quit ripping on this, it’s obviously a parody – Ricky Gervais is in it! Your aura of masculinity makes my panties moist, but you’ve screwed up this time!
Sorry, folks, IMDB calls it a drama. I call it a turd.
