For those old enough to remember BBC kids comedy show 'Rentaghost' will have fond memories of...well, being young. The cult show which ran from 1976-1984 is set for a big-screen adaption thanks to star and producer Ben Stiller ('The Watch'). Variety are now reporting that 'Madagascar' and 'Megamind' helmer Tom McGrath has jumped on board the project for directorial duties. McGrath will direct from a script provided by 'Reno 911!' and 'Night at the Museum' writers Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant. The feeling is that this will be more family friendly entertainment than more adult comedy horror but either way its nice to see a project that will heopfully help with a potential DVD release of the forgotten TV series.

"Fred Mumford is a recently deceased guy determined to be more productive as a corpse than he was during his life as a slacker. He attempts to set himself up in a business with a couple of other ghouls, starting a temp agency for the dead. Mumford and cohorts rent out ghouls and ghosts to the living, until things go awry."
