DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – There are some real ghost stories being shared with the cast and crew of the new film “Ghost of Goodnight Lane”, currently filming in Dallas.

Seventeen years ago filmmaker Alin Bijan purchased two buildings on Goodnight Lane and turned them into a movie studio.

While he has been very successful over the years, producing numerous projects for television and the big screen, when working at the movie studio he felt there was always something lurking in the corners, closets and hallways.

Bijan knew the feelings he had in the buildings weren’t ‘all in his head’, so he had two well-respected experts in the world of paranormal sightings visit his offices. Their independent investigations came up with the same conclusion — the place is haunted!

The original property was a ranch built in the late 1800’s. Legend has it five people died there at the turn of the century and it is their spirits that remain present today.

With so many employees and visitors agreeing they have experienced many scary occurrences, Bijan decided the experiences would make a great film.

Last year he wrote the script for “Ghost of Goodnight Lane”, which is about a movie being filmed at a movie studio that is haunted. So now does that mean that life is imitating art, or is art imitating life?

The Ghost script was so well received Bijan was able to attract an ‘A list’ group of Hollywood actors, including Billy Zane (Titanic) and Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls), as well as others and a host of well-known local talent.

Filming on the movie will continue through the end of the month.

Everyone involved seem to have had fun with the idea that spirits are among them. Billy Zane said he’s thrilled to tell the real life ghost story and Chabert said she made a pact with the spirits to remain friendly.

The filming hasn’t stopped the strange occurrences. Some of the crew have witnessed lights going off and on, ceiling fixtures dropping and even voices calling their names.

So, is it real or movie magic? You can be the judge when “Ghost of Goodnight Lane” opens in North Texas theaters, hopefully very soon.

Meanwhile, Zane cautions, “We got ghosts and we’re going to bust ’em.”

    People who believe in ghosts are in the same group as religious nuts and Easter bunny believers. ooooooooooooooo boo!

      Why are you so hostile (a mask for insecurity) toward people who happen to be religious or spiritual? Get a life. Really.

    2. Amulette says:

      Well,I am not a religious nut and I do not believe in the easter bunny,but I know without a doubt that spirits do exist.

      being someone who has headed a paranormal group and has in his posession hundereds of hours of very clear evp and video/still camera evidence i think that i can safely say ghosts very much exist and that people with completely closed minds such as yourself need to keep those opinions to yourself unless you can prove that ghosts do not exist:)

      1. LoveTGGL says:

        Agreed!!!

  2. darrell says:

    all i have to say about is that many years ago i had a single paranormal experience. stone cold sober, no drugs. i cant explain it, but i know what it wasnt. some type of ghost or angel or other thing was there and i have no doubt that it happened.

    1. A says:

      Can’t figure out an explanation, so you explain it away with ghosts or angels. Such silly logic.

      1. darrell says:

        A, where in your logic can you make that assumption without know any of the facts or details of the event or the logics used to eliminate all other possibilities? part of the problem not the solution are ya A?

      2. Production Guy says:

        Have any of you idiots (NiteNurse, A, and others) stopped for a minute to think this might be, oh, I don’t know… PR for the film?! Hmmm?!

  3. C Bauer says:

    Billy Zane and Lacey Chabert are A-listers? LMAO… OK, sure.

    Sandie, you need to take one of them to Spago and see how long it takes to get a table. LOL

    1. Production Guy says:

      LOL. I can see Billy Zane now as he’s being told to wait at the bar. “I was in Titanic! HELLO!?! Lake Consequence ring a bell? I’m BILLY ZANE, G-DD-MNIT!”

  4. I'm a Ghost says:
