Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters reboot was a lot of fun, even though some people got very Mad Online™ about the whole endeavor. Sony was hoping the reboot would launch a whole new franchise, but not-so-great box office seems to have killed that. Still, Feig says he’s definitely open to directing a Ghostbusters reboot sequel should Sony give the idea the go-ahead.

Over the past couple months, we’ve reported on a few cameos being made in Paul Feig‘s reboot of Ghostbusters by cast members of the original 1984 paranormal comedy. However, this hasn’t been something that has pleased us.
We would much rather these cameos were surprises when seeing the movie. But when all the trades, blogs and Ghostbusters fans are spreading the news like wildfire without any regard for spoilers, it doesn’t make much sense for us to try to keep it secret.
And director Paul Feig has succumbed to this same problem as he has just revealed on Twitter that… Read More »
Today marks the last day of shooting for the Ghostbusters reboot from Bridesmaids, The Heat and Spy director Paul Feig. And on wrap day, we’ve just learned of one more cameo featuring one of the stars of the original Ghostbusters from 1984.

Whether you like it or not, the reboot of Ghostbusters is happening. It’s one thing to simply not want a movie that you love to get remade, but it’s another to be belligerent about the fact that the movie is utilizing four females in the lead role as the title paranormal investigators and exterminators.
While some merely don’t like the talent involved, whether it’s director Paul Feig or stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, sadly, there are many chauvinistic fans out there who simply can’t accept the fact that four women are leading a Ghostbusters movie.
And as a way to fire back at all the haters our there, McCarthy has just posted a picture on Instagram that shows there are plenty more women working on the movie than the four leading ladies. Check out the Ghostbusters reboot girl power below! Read More »
Over the weekend, the cast of the new Ghostbusters earned some goodwill with fans by visiting the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in Boston. Photos have been making the rounds online featuring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones visiting patients and their families while wearing all their Ghostbusters gear.
Obviously, this is a very charming thing for the cast to do, and we’re happy to see these kids have some joy brought into their lives. But our interest has also been piqued by these photos because the team seems to be wearing an entirely different proton pack than the ones that director Paul Feig already revealed to us back in June.

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 »
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.

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 »
