"Saturday Night Live" creator Lorne Michaels is venturing into the world of paranormal and beer pong with the horror comedy "Ghost Bros."

Set in the 1980s, the Paramount Pictures film centers on fraternity brothers who die in their frat house and stick around to haunt the current members. Pitched to be a comedy in the same vein as "Neighbors," The Tracking Board reports the film will play up the humor of any horror elements.

Michaels has helped to transform several popular "SNL" sketches, from "Wayne's World" to "Coneheads" to "Superstar," into big-screen comedies. He's also had his hand in films like "Mean Girls" and "Baby Mama."

Written by Josh Bycel and Jonathan Fener ("Happy Endings," "American Dad!"), "Ghost Bros" will be produced under Michaels' Broadway Video banner.

No casting has been announced, but with Michaels' involvement, there's always a chance audiences will see some familiar faces from "SNL."
