Netflix has teamed with Christopher Landon (Freaky, Happy Death Day) to write and direct We Have a Ghost, a family adventure film that will star Anthony Mackie, David Harbour, Jahi Di’Allo Winston, Tig Notaro, Jennifer Coolidge and more.
Erica Ash, Isabella Russo, Niles Fitch, Faith Ford and Steve Coulter round out the cast.
The film centers on Kevin, who finds a ghost named Ernest haunting his new home. Kevin subsequently becomes an overnight social media sensation, along with his family. But when he and Ernest go rogue to investigate the mystery of the latter’s past, they become targets of the CIA.
Landon is penning the script, based on Geoff Manaugh’s short story, “Ernest.”
Dan Halsted is producing, alongside Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner.
The project’s executive producers are Landon, John Fischer, Manaugh, Korey Budd and Nathan Miller.
