EXCLUSIVE: The indie feature comedy Ghost Team is set to start production in New York this week, with Jon Heder starring alongside David Krumholtz (Numbers), Melonie Diaz (Fruitvale Station), Broad City‘s Paul W. Downs, Justin Long, Tom Schiller and Amy Sedaris. The film is about a team of ghost hunters who get more than they bargained for when they embark on their own paranormal investigation.
Oliver Irving (How To Be) is directing a film that will cover Manhattan, Long Island and Brooklyn. 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’ll be the U.S. sales agent for the film.
While nowhere near the budget of Ghostbusters, which is wrapping its shoot in New York, the makers of Ghost Team say theirs will be the first feature to use the new Steadicam Tango, an innovation by cinematographer Garrett Brown on his Steadicam invention.
