James Badge Dale in talks to join Legendary's Spectral

James Badge Dale fought off zombies in last years WORLD WAR Z and now he's looking to take on ghosts and other malevolent spirits in Legendary's supernatural thriller SPECTRAL, according to Variety.

We last reported on the long-in-development SPECTRAL back in May of last year when commercials director Nic Mathieu signed on to helm the film, replacing original directors Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg. Described as a supernatural BLACK HAWK DOWN, SPECTRAL was recently rewritten by scribe John Gatins. George Nolfi wrote the original script that Ian Fried had taken a crack at rewriting that is said to center on...

... a special ops group formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. 

In other words, GHOSTBUSTERS for a new generation.

More on SPECTRAL as we hear it.

Extra Tidbit: It seems that we've been hearing about SPECTRAL forever, so it's nice to hear that casting is underway. Looking forward to this one?
