Madagascar Man For Ben Stiller Rentaghost Movie?

Madagascar director Tom McGrath is reportedly in negotiations with movie studio 20th Century Fox to helm the planned big-screen remake of Ben Stilleris claimed to have been lined up for the lead role on the film, which is one of Hollywood's least-likely "re-boot" projects.
The original kids' TV show ran on the BBC from 1976 to 1984 - following the adventures of Fred Mumford and his efforts to gain employment for a group of fellow ghosts.
Stiller was reported last autumn to have signed on for the Mumford role, after Russell brand departed from the project.
The script is reportedly being handled by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, who wrote Stiller's hit movie Night At The Museum.
