Anthony Mackie and David Harbor feature in the first image from Christopher Landon’s Netflix film We Have a Ghost

Happy death day / Freaky director Christopher Landon tries to do something in the classic Amblin style with his new film We have a ghostand we’ll get the chance to see how this experiment has turned out when the film is released via the Netflix streaming service on February 24thTh. In the meantime, empire has unveiled the first image We have a ghostwhich gives a look at the characters being played Anthony Mackie (The Falcon and the Winter Soldier) and David Harbor (Stranger Things). You can check it out at the bottom of this article.

Based on author Geoff Manaugh’s “socially mediated ghost story” Ernestwhich was published on Vice.com in October 2017 (you can still read it on Vice at THIS LINK), We have a ghost has the following synopsis: Kevin and his family find a ghost named Ernest haunting their new home and are transformed into overnight social media sensations. But when Kevin and Ernest go rogue to investigate the mystery of Ernest’s past, they become a target for the CIA.

Also in the cast is Tig Notaro (Army of the Dead), Jennifer Coolidge (american pie), Jahi Di’Allo Winston (Charm City Kings), Erica Ash (Grants), Isabella Russo (HBOs Breakdown), Niles Fitch (This is us), Faith Ford (Murphy Brown), and Steve Coulter (The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It).

Manaugh’s short story begins

with Jimmy Kimmel asking his TV audience if they want to see a real ghost. It would be Ernest, so named by the homeowner who discovered him because apparently Ernest looks a bit like Borgnine. The homeowner, Frank, begins to film his housebound ghost and broadcast the results to the world through social media. The spirit is mostly harmless, confused by his exploits, but Ernest becomes a global viral sensation.

He invites high school senior Kevin to be part of a series of dinner parties held at the house to make money off the ghost. This takes a twisted turn when the teenager and the ghost turn up missing, jeopardizing Frank’s money-making plans.

Landon enjoyed taking Amblin’s approach We have a ghost because “I really wanted to flex certain muscles that I felt I had but hadn’t been able to use yet. One of them is this big, sweeping, emotional story that really pays off at the end.He added that Harbour’s ghost character does not remember who he was in life and is unable to speak, so he has to rely on his expressions and movements. “[David and I] talked about how under all the grief and memory loss there were still the seeds of a man who was truly loving, a little mischievous and cunning. I liked this idea of ‚Äč‚ÄčErnest being this battered, tax accountant-like kind of guy.

We have a ghost was produced by Dan Halsted along with Marty Bowen and Isaac Klausner of Temple Hill. Manaugh and Landon serve as executive producers along with John Fischer, Korey Budd and Nathan Miller.
