Ghost (1990)

Paramount is working on a pilot for Ghost, a TV series based on the cinematic tearjerker starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore. The 1990 film about a murdered man who tries to avenge his death as a ghost won two Oscars for Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress (Whoopi Goldberg), but is perhaps better known for its famous pottery wheel scene.

The studio hired writers Akiva Goldsman (who won an Oscar for A Beautiful Mind) and Jeff Pinkner, who worked with Goldman on Fringe, according to the Wrap. Paramount launched a new TV division over the summer. It hopes to spin old hits (like Ghost) into small screen successes, as well as develop new projects.

A musical version of Ghost has been on Broadway since the spring of 2012.

First a reboot of Charmed and now Ghost? Come on Hollywood, time for fresh ideas, stop recycling already what we've already seen.
The last reboot of Ghost didn't happen but it's being talked about again. It turns out that Channing Tatum (Channing Tatum?!) has the rights to Ghost and is talking of a remake while changing parts of the story.

That must've been a bizarre interview for the author.
