Stranger Things' David Harbour and Captain America star Anthony Mackie have joined forces in a new Netflix movie.

The duo — who are both Marvel vets now Harbour has debuted as Red Guardian in Black Widow — are among the cast to have signed up to star in We Have A Ghost, the upcoming movie from writer and director Christopher Landon.

Landon is best known for horror fare like Freaky and Happy Death Day, but Deadline reports that We Have A Ghost will be a family-oriented adventure movie.

This family film tells the story of a man who becomes a social media sensation when he discovers a ghost has been hiding in his house — but he attracts the wrong kind of attention when an investigation into the ghost's origins attracts the attention of the CIA.

Netflix has also signed up Army of the Dead's Tig Notaro, Jahi Di’Allo Winston from Everything Sucks!, Promising Young Woman's Jennifer Coolidge, Niles Fitch (This is Us), Erica Ash (Legacies), Crashing's Isabella Russo, Faith Ford (Hope & Faith) and The Walking Dead veteran Steve Coulter for the project.

Harbour's working relationship with Netflix extends to playing Chief Hopper in Stranger Things, which is set to return for its fourth season in the coming months.

While Anthony Mackie most recently starred in Marvel's The Falcon and the Winter Soldier for Disney+, he has also worked with Netflix in the past.

He starred in the second season of Altered Carbon as the mercenary Takeshi Kovacs, and was the co-lead of the Netflix science fiction movie Io with Margaret Qualley.

We Have a Ghost does not yet have a premiere date.
