MegaMind Media & Kountry Wayne Entertainment are pleased to announce that they will be joining forces to produce a new comedy/horror film in Atlanta, Georgia. The new movie which is titled In love With A Ghost will be directed by Carl Payne (Starz) known for his role as Cole ( Martin) and is scheduled to have cameras rolling in the first quarter of 2022.
In addition to confirming that In Love With a Ghost will be starring Kountry Wayne, B.

Interested actors and actresses who feel they have what it takes to do justice to the characters are encouraged to reach out to the producers for a scheduled audition. The roles up for grabs are;
LINDSAY – a flamboyant, cross-dressing male ghost, who along with his sister Candice (who is also a ghost), continues to wreak havoc on anyone that comes across his presence. Lindsay is an African American who loves wearing tutus and has twerking skills that will put Meghan Thee Stallion out of business. He soon dances his way into Chip’s life, who is forced to grapple with the fact that not only was he receiving sexual favors from a ghost… but an unattractive ghost in drag.
CLARENCE – is an odd-looking, African American man in his 50’s. He works for the Fastest Moving Van Company and has to deal with Deshawn and his frugal ways.
KANDI – is a 30-year-old unbothered and ratchet receptionist for Raymond Talbert.
