If you saw Ghostbusters this weekend, we hope you stayed throughout the credits. Not only were there some good laughs during them, but there’s also a shocking revelation at the very end of them. We talked to the film’s director and producer all about it what it means for the future of the Ghostbusters.
At first, Paul Feig didn’t want to make a Ghostbusters movie at all. When Ivan Reitman, the co-writer and director of the original film, called him to discuss directing a new one, he was flattered... and he was still ready to say “No.”
This weekend, one of the producers of Ghostbusters declared the franchise would be “endless.” But there’s a long way to go before Sony decides to make an official Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe.
Ever since Ghostbusters 2 premiered in 1989, there’s been talk of a third movie. For nearly 20 years, various scripts and ideas and rumors circulated until Paul Feig’s new reboot, opening July 15, finally put the possibility to rest. io9 spoke with original film’s director Ivan Reitman, as well as Feig, about what…
Next week is a big one if you’re a fan of Ghostbusters. The main news, obviously, is the first new movie in over 25 years hitting theaters. What you may not know is there’s a second film coming too. It’s the fan documentary Ghostheads, which will hit Netflix July 15.
The new Ghostbusters film opening next month isn’t just a single movie. It’s potentially the start of a whole new era for the franchise. And we now know the next project in that world, as Sony has announced a brand new animated Ghostbusters TV show to begin airing in 2018.
There are so many pop culture properties that have passionate, organized fan communities. Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who, Marvel, DC, the list goes on and on. But one fandom you may not know much about is Ghostbusters, and a new documentary aims to remedy that.
If there’s one thing we can definitely say about the future of Ghostbusters, it’s that we don’t know what’s going on. The Paul Feig movie is shooting but after that, rumors have continually surfaced then been debunked. Now, the Channing Tatum Chris Pratt team up rumor has risen from its grave.
Bill Murray showed up after a screening of Ghostbusters in Toronto yesterday, where he spent the better part of an hour answering questions from fans. His best answer was in response to a question about his penchant for weird, unannounced hangouts (crashing the above couple's engagement photoshoot, for instance).
Original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is rumored to be getting forced out of his own franchise, in favor of a younger director. Too bad his contract won't let Columbia make a new Ghostbusters without his say-so.
While the latest Ghostbusters film moves forward by confirming its director, we wonder where will the project even begin, now that all of our ghost-gathering heroes of past are all retired? Thankfully a little more has been revealed.
With a new Ghostbusters script soon to be finished, we've been hearing that the franchise will introduce a whole new generation of Ghostbusters, with Venkman and co. passing the torch. But one more veteran is coming back: director Ivan Reitman.
