If there’s something strange in your neighborhood, you now have three options for assistance: You can call the police, or the new Ghostbusters, or the folks over at the new Ghostbusters knockoff. Splitsider reports that the indie comedy Ghost Team is currently in production in Long Island, with Oliver Irving (How To Be) directing with a script by Peter Warren. The film follows a ragtag team (is there any other kind?) of amateur ghost hunters “who get more than they bargained for when they embark on their own paranormal investigation.” We’ve certainly never seen anything quite like that play out on the big screen, but just in case, Irving says his movie is going to get “scary, too.” Napoleon Dynamite’s Jon Heder will lead a cast that includes Amy Sedaris, Justin Long, David Krumholtz (you remember Numb3rs, right?), and longtime Saturday Night Live writer Tom Schiller.
