Russo Brothers Ghostbusters

In addition to this summer’s forthcoming Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, the original film’s producer and director Ivan Reitman confirmed that there was another film in development that would be scripted by Drew Pearce and directed by Anthony & Joe Russo. Later buzz brought back rumors that Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt may star in the movie. But since then, we haven’t heard anything about the Ghostbusters spin-off, but that changes today.

Now that the Russo brothers have taken on both parts of The Avengers: Infinity War for Marvel Studios, the duo is no longer involved with making whatever this new Ghostbusters movie may be. But that doesn’t mean it’s not still in the cards. Read More »

Ghostbusters - hotel

The trailer for Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters hit the web this morning, but I got a chance to attend a screening and question and answer session yesterday on the Sony studio lot. Ghostbusters fans from around the United States gathered (a couple dozen even flew in) to get a sneak peek at the new trailer and get a chance to meet the filmmakers behind the new film. You can watch the Ghostbusters trailer elsewhere on the site. In this post, I recap what we learned from the discussion that followed the trailer premiere with director Paul Feig, screenwriter  Katie Dippold, and producer Ivan Reitman (who, yes, directed the original two films in the 1980s).

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 »

Paul Feig’s female-centric Ghostbusters are no longer the only ‘busters on the block. Sony has just announced a new division of their company, Ghost Corps, which will take control of the franchise. Lead by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman, the first order of business is to create a male counterpart to the Feig film. They’re eyeing the Russo Brothers to direct, Drew Pierce to write and Channing Tatum to produce and co-star. From there, Sony might do TV shows and more.

new Jason Reitman movie

As it stands, Jason Reitman‘s career can be divided into two phases: Fox Searchlight and Paramount. His first two movies, Thank You For Smoking and Juno, were released by Fox Searchlight and the four since have all been at Paramount. For an upcoming project, the director of Up in the Air will transition back to the studio were it all started.

Reitman is now attached to a film called I Would Only Rob Banks for My Family, based on a magazine article about a seemingly normal Texas family who robs banks together. It’ll be adapted by High Fidelity author Nick Hornby and produced by Jason Reitman’s father, Ivan Reitman. Read more about the new Jason Reitman movie below. Read More »
