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.
While the following is still a rumor, you might want to turn back now if you wish to avoid potential spoilers for Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie. We’ve heard for some time now that Dan Aykroyd is putting in a cameo appearance, but we weren’t sure if he’d be doing so as Ray from the original Ghostbusters, or an entirely new character. Given Feig’s plans for his new film, the former was pretty unlikely.
Paul Feig has wisely (and graciously) been keeping fans up to date with photos from his new Ghostbusters movie, including looks at the proton pack and the new costumes, while set photos have been leaking that show our new leads in action. But we haven’t seen all four of them together, in costume — until now.
Between set photos, casting announcements and Paul Feig’s tweets, Ghostbusters fans have had plenty of sneak peeks to keep us occupied until next summer. First we got a look at the new costumes, then Feig gave us a look at the new proton pack (followed by a more detailed photo to explain the pack’s functions), and now the director has revealed our first look at the new Ghostbusters car.
With a cast that includes the likes of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, and Chris Hemsworth, you’d think Paul Feig’s currently filming Ghostbusters reboot would try to find another big name for the film’s villain. And you’d be wrong! Rather than cast another recognizable face, Feig has recruited Neil Casey into the ensemble. While you may not know that name, chances are strong that you’ve seen at least one project that has his name attached.
Just last week, director Paul Feig gave us our first look at the new proton pack from his upcoming Ghostbusters movie, which looked like a pretty serious and legit accessory for his four women Ghostbusters. Coupled with the excellent new costumes, this movie is really getting us excited.
Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters already has an insanely great cast: Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon, and Chris Hemsworth. But a Ghostbusters needs more than Ghostbusters. There must be ghosts, along with assorted kinds of bureaucracy to bust along the way. To that end, Feig is filling out the rest of his Ghostrebooters with some more talented actors.
Ghostbusters is currently filming in Boston, but aside from the occasional paparazzi photo, we haven’t seen anything official from the upcoming reboot. That all changed today as director Paul Feig tweeted out a photo of the new costumes that will be worn by the leading ladies, and they look pretty great.
A few days ago, Channing Tatum got honest about a few things, including the status of that second Ghostbusters reboot. The Magic Mike star made it sound like the project was stuck in development, toiling away under the watchful eyes of countless Sony execs. Today, it looks like Tatum was underselling the situation. In a separate interview with his producing partner (and Magic Mike XXL co-director), Reid Carolin, it was revealed that Tatum won’t be busting any ghosts after all.
The release of Magic Mike XXL is less than two weeks away and Channing Tatum is apparently all out of f–cks to give. The actor stopped by the Howard Stern Show and decided to get brutally honest about a few things, resulting in a few quotes that surely have a few behind-the-scenes people writing frantic emails about the repercussions of one of the most well-liked actors in modern Hollywood speaking his mind. The short version: Tatum really hates those G.I. Joe movies.
