Ricky & Greg see Ghost

Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear have signed on to star in the upcoming romantic comedy GHOST TOWN for DreamWorks. OK, two things. One, GHOST TOWN doesn't seem like much of a romantic comedy. It sounds more like a sequel to GHOST SHIP, a movie that certainly doesn't need a sequel. Second, Gervais and Kinnear starring in a romantic comedy? I'd love for them to be romantic interests for each other but sadly I don't think that's gonna happen. The film, from what we know at this early point, follows a misanthropic dentist who, after a botched surgery, gains the ability to help the dead contact the living. No word on what roles Gervais or Kinnear would be playing. I'm assuming Gervais is the dentist and is contacted by a man (Kinnear) looking to get in touch with his wife. Like GHOST but funnier (??) and without Vincent Schiavelli. DreamWorks paid $2 million for the rights just based on a 2005 pitch by Koepp ($2 mil for a pitch?!). Koepp, who recently wrote the INDIANA JONES 4 script, will direct from his own script. Filming is scheduled to begin in October.

Extra Tidbit: Koepp's other directing efforts include STIR OF ECHOES and SECRET WINDOW.

This sounds good. It has to be.. 2 million isn't petty cash. I could buy my neighborhood with that kind of money, and rule supreme. My first act with that authority would be to ban all dogs.

This sounds good. I'm glad Gervais is making it into the movie-business. I really feel he fits into that sort of thing, and that we'll see a lot of great things from him. I saw the Stardust trailer a few days ago, and that looked like a great role.

I was just thinking how good a title "Ricky and Greg" would be for a movie.

Gotta admit something about putting those two actors together in a film just feels right, which is strange, because Greg Kinnear is the kind of actor who, though very talented, has never seemed like someone I've ever imagined being paired with anyone. It usually just happens. I guess, in a way, Ricky Gervais is the same way.
