“Yes, we have the rights to Ghost, but let’s do something different,” he pointed out, referring to some troubling stereotypes of the original film. “I think it will be necessary to apply these changes,” he commented.
Tatum, who was last seen in theaters in Cidade Perdida (The Lost City, in the original), alongside Sandra Bullock, has other highly successful productions under his belt, such as Free Guy: Assuming Control ( 2021), Anjos da Lei (2012) and Ela Dança, Eu Danço (2006). Currently 42 years old, the artist will have the great challenge of reviving a character considered by many moviegoers as a classic.

Directed by Jerry Zucker, the original feature film tells the story of an ordinary couple formed by Sam Wheat (Swayze) and Molly Jensen (Moore). When he is brutally murdered in front of her at the door of a theater, his soul refuses to leave the world of the living, mainly because Wheat believes he can still protect his great love.
In this way, the character looks for help until he meets Oda Mae Brown (Goldberg), a gold-digging medium who, initially, cannot believe in his motivations. However, little by little she starts to help him, either in revenge against his murderers or in saying goodbye to Molly.
