There’s one reason and one reason only why we’re getting a Ghostbusters remake in 2016 instead of an actual Ghostbusters 3 five years ago. That reason is named Bill Murray and he’s been the not-so-secret sequel roadblock for as long as we can remember. But then he accepted a small role in the new reboot, because he’s Bill Murray and Bill Murray does whatever he wants. Sometimes that means randomly showing up at your birthday party. Sometimes that means popping up in a film franchise that he seemingly had zero desire to revisit. Now, Murray explains his reasons for joining a new Ghostbusters movie he was so vocally against.
If you’ve been anywhere near the internet when Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie is mentioned, then you’re well aware of the horrid response from a certain contingency of fan boys who already hate the movie based on the decision to cast four women in the lead roles. There have been the usual, lame cries of “You’re ruining my childhood!” and “Way to f— up the original!” Feig and the cast and crew of the film have mostly kept quiet…until now. And they’ve got the absolute best response to all those whiny haters.
Chris Hemsworth ain’t afraid of no nerdy eyewear. He’s also not afraid of serving as the administrative assistant to a quartet of ghost-busting ladies on the set of Paul Feig’s Ghosbtusters. Today brings our first look at Hemsworth in costume, spotting the Ghostbusters uniform on the set of the upcoming film.
So far, we know of two notable cameos in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters: Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, two of the four original Ghostbusters stars — though they won’t be reprising their classic roles in the new film. The latest word from the set reveals another major cameo in the upcoming film: rock legend Ozzy Osbourne.
For years Bill Murray was the one holdout against Ghostbusters 3, and without his participation and approval, making a new Ghostbusters sequel was never going to happen. We’ve wondered if the legendary (and legendarily picky) actor would make an appearance in Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters after all that commotion, and now it seems he just might.
Sony went on a release date-spree earlier today, scheduling a ton of upcoming films for 2016 and 2017. In addition to Bad Boys 3 and Bad Boys 4, the studio also set a 2017 date for the first film in Stephen King’s Dark Tower franchise and announced dates for a handful of anticipated projects, like Edgar Wright’s latest, the Barbie movie, Underworld 5 and more.
Recently, Chris Pratt and Chris Evans visited children’s hospitals in costume as their superhero characters, followed by Johnny Depp dressing as Jack Sparrow and doing the same. And now the cast of Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie have been inspired to use their fame for good, visiting the kids at Tufts Medical Center in Boston.
There has been much dispute lately regarding the matter of who, in the event of a ghost-related emergency, ya gonna call.
Paul Feig is probably too busy filming his Ghostbusters reboot to be annoyed by the fact that a second, all-male reboot of the classic franchise is officially moving forward. Well, we hope he’s too busy to let himself be bothered by this nonsense, but here we are. Someone in the Ghostbusters hierarchy have apparently decided that men don’t get enough cinematic representation and that a second Ghostbusters movie starring dudes is in order, just in case the women in the audience start to realize that they too can bust ghosts in supernatural comedies.
Who ya gonna call? No, really, who are we supposed to call when the ghosts start terrorizing us? Director Paul Feig has officially revealed the names of the four leading characters in his new Ghostbusters movie, just in case you need to scribble them down in your day planner for future reference.
