Don’t expect any ghosts to linger inside the longtime Brentwood home of Jerry Zucker. The director of films including “Ghost,” “Airplane!” and “The Naked Gun” is now offering a discount in order to clear out the place.

Zucker re-listed his traditional-style mansion on Mandeville Canyon for $15.5 million, a $1 million price cut.

The 10,000-square-foot property with six bedrooms and 10 bathrooms first hit the market in April 2016 with an asking price of $16.5 million. It was taken off the market in March, according to listing records. 

Zucker purchased the property in 1990 for $4.1 million, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Built in 1939, the two-story home has a billiard room, an office/den, a gym and home theater designed by Michael Kovac of Kovac Design Studio. It also has a detached guest house, swimming pool and greenhouse.

Justin Alexander and Tami Pardee of Halton Pardee + Partners have the listing. 

Zucker’s credits also include the 1982 television series “Police Squad!” and the 1984 film “Top Secret!” [LAT] — Subrina Hudson
