For a long time, Bill Murray didn’t really want anything to do with Ghostbusters 3. However, director Paul Feig was fortunate enough to secure his involvement (along with most of the rest of the original cast) for a cameo in Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. And it sounds like if Jason Reitman wants Bill Murray to appear in the developing Ghostbusters sequel slated for 2020, all he has to do is ask. Read More »

Director Jason Reitman recently announced that he would be following in his father Ivan Reitman‘s footsteps by directing a Ghostbusters sequel that would take place decades after the original movies in the franchise. The reception for this new project has ranged from fury about ignoring the new Ghostbusters to celebration that we’ll finally get a sequel set in the original universe of New York’s finest paranormal investigators. That’s to be expected when you’re dealing with a franchise like Ghostbusters.
But there was more than a little bitterness online yesterday in response to a certain comment that Jason Reitman made about his new Ghostbusters project. While appearing on Bill Burr’s Monday Morning Podcast, the director explained that in addition to going back to some of the old school filmmaking techniques they used on the original movie, he wanted to “hand the movie back to the fans.” And that came with all sorts of implications about the 2016 Ghostbusters and exactly where they stand as fans.
Thankfully, Jason Reitman has clarified his feelings on Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, responded to the backlash, and even has an ally in director Paul Feig. Find out what he had to say below. Read More »

Leading up to and after the release of Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, the female team of conductors of the metaphysical examination faced a lot of vitriol and venom from the angry fanboys who were simply upset about women taking over paranormal extermination duties. So it should come as no surprise that one of them is upset about the new Ghostbusters project in the works from director Jason Reitman, son of the original franchise director producer Ivan Reitman.
Leslie Jones, who played Patty Tolan in the 2016 reboot of Ghostbusters, lashed out on Twitter over the weekend about the all-new, surprise Ghostbusters movie in development that will act as a sequel to Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II. It would be an understatement to say she’s not happy about being left out in the wind. Read More »
