Chris Columbus has signed on to direct a remake of the Korean box-office hit Hello Ghost. The film centers on a man who tries to kill himself, but survives and becomes haunted by four ghosts. The ghost won’t stop haunting the man until he helps them fulfill a wish. If this premise gives you a flashback to the 1993 Robert Downey Jr. flick Heart and Souls, you’re not alone.
Columbus tells Deadline that he’s a fan of Korean cinema after he saw Hello Ghost, he “was immediately struck by the film’s ability to mix comedy, drama and complex emotional themes. Its strong universal storyline translates to any culture, and I’m looking forward to bringing a version of this wonderful story to the English-speaking audience.” So if Columbus comes to your door and hands you a copy of Heart and Souls, you’ll know why.
