Well, Dante is actually teaming up with Simon Pegg on an adaptation of “Casting the Runes,” the M.R. James ghost story that has been modernized by screenwriter David Tully. Simon Pegg is set to play the lead. Here’s a plot synopsis taken from the film’s website:
When up-and-coming actor Jake Harrington inexplicably hurls himself in front of an oncoming subway train, celebrity gossip blogger Mark Dunning smells a story in Harrington's connection to self-help guru Simon Karswell. What Dunning isn't prepared for is the secret behind Karswell's motivational-speaker success: a command of dark occult forces that reveals his following to be more cult than therapy.
