In an announcement that is blowing up fan groups across social media, a new 'Ghostbusters' movie set in the original film universe will be written and directed by Jason Reitman, son Ivan Reitman, director of the first two films.
With the Ghostbusters reboot less than two months away and the controversy surrounding it at an all-time high, we spoke with our local experts, the Texhoma Ghostbusters, about the film and its resulting controversy.
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, but aside from the occasional paparazzi photo, we haven’t seen anything official from the upcoming reboot. That all changed today as director Paul Feig tweeted out a photo of the new costumes that will be worn by the leading ladies, and they look pretty great.
Since the announcement of a Paul Feig directed 'Ghostbusters' reboot with an all-female cast, opinions have ranged from both extremes. And unfortunately, those who oppose an all-female 'Ghostbusters' film are quickly labeled as sexists, even if they have valid concerns...
Here’s something strange in the neighborhood: Deadline reports that Sony isn’t waiting for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot (with its cast of comedy all-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon) to debut before planning additional Ghostbuster sequels or spinoffs. They’re already getting to work on what the trade describes as a “guy-themed” offshoot with an all-male cast.
