Ironically similar to Patrick Swayze’s Ghost, David Lowery’s (Pete’s Dragon, Peter Pan) festival hit A Ghost Story it set to hit theaters on July 7th.
Oscar nominated Casey Affleck (ParaNorman, The Killer Inside Me) and Rooney Mara (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, A Nightmare on Elm Street) star in this story of a ghost and the house he haunts. In the first trailer it appears that Affleck puts on the sheet and looks over Mara similar to how Swayze watched over Demi Moore in Ghost. It’s clearly not a horror story, although you have to wonder if the two will interact come the film’s finale.
A Ghost Story was one of the hottest tickets out of this past January’s Sundance Film Festival where A24, the company behind The Witch, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, Green Room and Ex Machina, acquired it.
Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky and Liz Franke also star.
