Want to "RentaGhost?" Call Russell Brand! 


Russell Brand is set to star as a ghost with a mission in the big-screen version of the hit British comedy show, RentaGhost! According to Deadline, this will be a "Beetlejuice" inspired afterlife comedy feature and Brand will play Fred Mumford, a dead dude determined to make it better as a corpse than his slacker life.

In order to redeem himself, Mumford sets up a business with a couple of other ghouls to rent out ghosts to the living.

Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to the BBC show and Brand will be executive producer. They're in search of writers right now.
