The Orchard has acquired North American, UK, Australian and New Zealand distribution rights on Oliver Irving’s Ghost Team, starring Jon Heder, Justin Long and Amy Sedaris. David Krumholtz, Melonie Diaz and Paul W. Downs co-star.
Peter Warren wrote the script and Tandem Pictures’ Julie Christeas and Schuyler Weiss are producing with Mott Street Pictures’ Alex Sagalchik and Irving. Preferred Content’s Kevin Iwashinia is exec producing and he was the U.S. sales agent for the film.
The film is about a team of ghost hunters who get more than they bargained for when they embark on their own paranormal investigation. The makers of Ghost Team believe theirs will be the first feature to use the new Steadicam Tango, an innovation by cinematographer Garrett Brown on his Steadicam invention. Deadline first broke news of this production in October.
