James Badge Dale Haunted By Spectral
He's in talks for the horror thriller

James-Badge-Dale-Haunted-By-Spectral

It’s safe to say that James Badge Dale had a good 2013, notching roles in three big films (Iron Man 3, World War Z and The Lone Ranger), two of which turned out to be big successes at the box office. 2014 may not be as notable, but he is at least in talks to star in Legendary’s supernatural thriller Spectral.

Ads man Nic Mathieu is hoping this will turn out to be his film directorial debut, with the concept described as a ghostly take on Black Hawk Down. It apparently sees New York infested with supernatural creatures and a specially trained team sent in to deal with the problem. Ian Fried wrote the original pitch, though George Nolfi and John Gatins have crafted the actual script. It’s been in development for a while, but Legendary starting talks with Dale suggests it’s finally getting close to production.

Dale most recently worked on Miss Meadows alongside Katie Holmes and indie drama A Relative Stranger. He’s also part of Joe Carnahan’s Stretch, which is facing release issues at the moment, but may make it to screens this year if the director has any say in the matter.
