Untitled Brad Bird Musical

In conversation with Collider, Michael Giacchino confirmed Brad Bird’s live-action/animated musical is still in the “early stages” of development.

We are in the early stages of doing that, working on ‘Ok, what is this thing gonna be? What’s it going to sound like. Let’s come up with at least one idea we can start bouncing around and seeing how we feel about it.’ So that’s where we are. It is still early stages. But the idea is great, and, you know, it’s pure Brad Bird. It’s just really fun and emotional and exciting and silly – all those great things you expect from his movies. I am looking forward to that. I don’t know when it’s coming out… but yeah, we’re working on it!


Ghostbusters: Afterlife

Speaking with NME, Finn Wolfhard described Ghostbusters: Afterlife as a “really, really faithful approach” to the original film that is not likely to upset “older Ghostbusters fans.

Older Ghostbusters fans will find it’s a really, really faithful approach to the series. While young people, if not everyone, will find that, first and foremost, Ghostbusters is about family and the relationships that these people have made.
