Ghost to be turned into TV series

Demi Moore's film Ghost is being adapted for television

Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze's film Ghost is being adapted for the small screen.

Paramount is making a television show based on the 1990 supernatural love story about a man who is murdered and communicates with his fiancee through a medium, reported The Wrap.

They have hired Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner to pen the pilot for the series.

"We are thrilled to collaborate with Akiva and Jeff, two deeply creative and accomplished talents, on the television adaptation of this classic supernatural drama," Paramount TV president Amy Powell said.

Ghost followed Sam Wheat (Patrick) who teams up with psychic Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg) after he is murdered, so he can avenge his death and say goodbye to his fiancee Molly (Demi).

It made more than 500 million dollars worldwide and scooped two Oscars, Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actress for Whoopi.

The movie also inspired a stage version, Ghost The Musical.
