Hoping to cash in on some of that big Gnomeo and Juliet-style wordplay money, Paramount is negotiating to pick up The Hauntrepreneur, a spec script from Scott Rosenberg. Said to be tonally similar to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, the film focuses on a family that moves to a new town and, for whatever reason, hires a man to make their house haunted, populated by "an odd cast of characters." That man? The Hauntrepeneur! Obviously. And that "odd cast of characters"? I don't know, whatever supporting players from Night at the Museum are cheapest, plus Neil Patrick Harris or someone?
