Our attention was drawn to this intriguing indie film project over on Facebook this morning. Ghost Team is a heartfelt action/comedy about the things people believe in. Whether it’s ghosts, aliens, messages from the beyond or spirits all too near, one thing is universal: We’re all hunting for something.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Louis is a regular guy. He runs a small print-and-copy shop in a Long Island strip mall. He drinks beer with his best buddy, Stan. He hunts for evidence that ghosts exist.
Believe it or not, Louis is normal, one of many thousands of people who consider themselves amateur ghost-hunters. It’s an escape from the drudgery of his daily routine and a reminder that there may be more to life than he knows.
When a customer walks into his print shop and mentions possible paranormal activity at an abandoned farm outside of town, Louis sees a chance to finally indulge his hobby for real. With the help of his depressed best friend, a fuck-up nephew, an overly-serious mall cop, a hack cable-access psychic, a whip-smart beautician and a van filled with amateur equipment, Louis is determined to catch some ghosts on film.
But poltergeists are the least of what the team finds in the abandoned McIntosh estate. What begins as a bumbling attempt to explore the farm soon becomes a hilarious and terrifying race to escape it alive.”
The film is set to be produced by Tandem Pictures and is written by Peter Warren and Oliver Irving – Irving also serving as director. Not much else is known about the project right now, but you can keep up to date with the latest developments on Facebook and the film’s blog.
