FRINGE Boys Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner Developing GHOST: THE SERIES!!
Longtime “Fringe” writer-producers Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner are reteaming to develop a TV version of Jerry Zucker’s 1991 Swayze-Demi-Whoopi big-screen blockbuster “Ghost.”
No channel is yet attached.
The tale of a psychic who reunites the soul of a murdered fellow with his hot girlfriend, “Ghost” was one of Paramount’s biggest hits. A series version, I’d guess, would cover the same sort of territory “Medium” did for five seasons, with the psychic and the ghost teaming up to fight crime.
An earlier Paramount attempt to turn another of its biggest hits, “Beverly Hills Cop,” never got beyond the pilot stage at CBS.
Both Goldsman and Pinkner have written big-screen superhero adventures. Goldsman penned the two worst Batman movies while Pinkner scripted the next two “Amazing Spider-Man” movies heading our way in 2014 and 2016.
Before he became a showrunner on "Fringe," Pinkner was a writer-producer on "Alias" and "Lost."
