Jason Reitman‘s upcoming Ghostbusters may be introducing a new generation of proton pack-wielding ghost hunters, but the director knows that there will always be a group of actors that audiences are always going to call. At the first-ever Ghostbusters Fan Fest, Reitman cryptically hinted that several of the 1984 film’s legacy cast members will be reprising their roles as part of the 2020 Ghostbusters sequel cast.

Long before the Ghostbusters reboot tore the internet apart and made a bunch of grown men throw fits like someone popped their birthday balloon, there was a Ghostbusters sequel that was long in development that was hoping to reunite Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson for one more paranormal adventure. There was even a script that was given the greenlight at Sony Pictures, and along with the fact that Bill Murray couldn’t be convinced to do it, the film hit an even bigger snag when Harold Ramis sadly passed away. However, Dan Akyroyd seems to have renewed faith that Ghostbusters 3 will happen. Read More »

Now that the dust has settled around the hotly debated Ghostbusters reboot from director Paul Feig, we wanted to take a look back at all the Easter eggs and references the new film made to the original 1984 classic from director Ivan Reitman. One of the biggest complaints was that the reboot aimed for too much fan service with an abundance of references to the original film, right down to cameos from almost every single key cast member.
Once you check out our complete Ghostbusters Easter eggs guide below, you can decide for yourself. Some of them are obvious, others might have gone over your head. But we rounded up all of them, because there might be some viewers out there who aren’t as well-versed with the original Ghostbusters as some of the most hardcore fans. That’s why you’ll see us referencing everything from the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man to a tribute the late Harold Ramis to a couple of obscure ghosts you forgot about. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters and we’ve been celebrating like Gozer in New York City. The original 1984 film was rereleased, and there were traveling art shows, tons of new merchandise and events. For a while, almost every single week it seemed like something Ghostbusters was going on. That culminated last month as director Paul Feig revealed he was going to make a new Ghostbusters movie, something fans have been waiting on for 25 years.
Or maybe that wasn’t the culmination. Maybe the culmination is actually the cover of this week’s Enteratinment Weekly, which reunites four living stars of the film: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis passed away earlier this year, and there’s no appearance from Rick Moranis. But Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman do take part. Below, check out the Ghostbusters reunion photo.
UPDATE: We’ve added some video too. Read More »

In fact, he thinks it’s “wrong” and that the fans won’t want it. But hey, on the bright side, he’s not completely ruling out the possibility that women Ghostbusters could be funny or “at least sexy.”
Hit the jump for the Ernie Hudson female Ghostbusters comments.
