Ghostbusters rumors

What’s the deal with Ghostbusters? Paul Feig is shooting his new film now, but there has also been talk of another movie, possibly directed by Joe and Anthony Russo, with story input from Drew Pearce and Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum as possible stars. Reid Carolyn, who is Tatum’s creative partner, has commented on the development, as has Pearce. Pratt even fanned rumors by posting goofy/cryptic goat pictures on Instagram.

Now Ivan Reitman, director of the first two Ghostbusters films and producer of the current one, is here to bust the rumors. He has released a statement in an attempt to clarify the situation. In short: there’s only one new Ghostbusters, and Paul Feig is making it. Trouble is, that contradicts what Reitman himself said a few months ago. Read More »

Ghostbusters spin-off

This month has been chock full of new details about Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters. We’ve seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts, not to mention learning about a cameo from Dan Aykroyd and the character names of the new female paranormal exterminators.

But today we have an update regarding the Ghostbusters spin-off that was first reported back in March with ties to Captain America: the Winter Soldier directors Anthony & Joe Russo. At the time Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum were said to be eyed as stars of the film, but Pratt denied the rumors and Tatum’s producing partner Reid Carolin said it wasn’t happening anymore.

However, if Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce is to be believed, then the Ghostbusters spin-off may still happen. Find out more below! Read More »

new Ghostbusters character names

Director Paul Feig has been revealing quite a bit from his forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot that’s currently shooting in New York City. We’ve already seen the new proton packs (with added specs to help cosplayers), the new Ecto-1, and a shot of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones all suited up and ready to bust ghosts.

But we still didn’t know what characters the ladies were playing. That changed yesterday when Feig replied to a request to reveal the character names on Twitter from a Ghostsbusters fan and charity organization. Find out the new Ghostbusters character names after the jump! Read More »

Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters cameo

Since Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters doesn’t have any narrative ties to the original franchise, we won’t be seeing any characters from the iconic films popping up. But that doesn’t mean some of the stars of the 1984 Ghostbusters are out of the running.

In fact, Dan Aykroyd has just announced that he was on the set of Ghostbusters today shooting a scene with Kristen Wiig. And there are even details as to what kind of character he’s playing in the movie. Find out more about the Dan Aykroyd Ghostbusters cameo after the jump! Read More »
