It's not April 1st is it? I mean... this can't be true... Can it? Have 20th Century Fox really acquired the movie rights to a thirty-five year old, creepy-in-all-the-wrong-ways British children's show featuring a dead bearded jester, a sentient pantomime horse and a Dutch ghost who teleports when she sneezes and was played by Gail's mum from CORONATION STREET?!
A big-screen Hollywood re-imagining of RENTAGHOST is on its way courtesy of Ben Stiller and his Red Hour Ben production company (with the star reportedly eyeballing a lead role).
Anybody over the age of 30 in the UK will have fond/nightmarish memories of this wonderfully strange show, but for all you younger readers scratching your heads right now, check out the stuff your mum & dad were subjected to growing up...
