Disney+ Developing Halloween Comedy ‘Spooked’

A new Halloween comedy that has the potential to be another family favorite, Spooked is in development for Disney’s streaming platform Disney Plus.

THR reports that Irish filmmaker Peter Foott is set to direct the supernatural comedy, which is being produced by Dan Lin and Jonathan Eirich of Rideback, with Mark Bauch executive producing. The initial script by Tyler Burton Smith will now be rewritten by Foott.

While the exact plot is unknown at this time, the storyline reportedly involves a Halloween night gone awry as trick or treaters are transformed into whatever costume they are wearing.

Foott previously made his feature film directorial debut with 2016’s The Young Offenders, a coming-of-age crime comedy about a pair of best friends who steal some bikes to go find a batch of missing cocaine and escape their troubled lives. That movie was inspired by a true life incident involving a capsized boat and drug seizure of the Irish coast and it currently has a 100 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Obviously, we will covering this project extensively as it develops, so keep watching this site for updates on Spooked.
