Ever since his breakout success in Guardians of the Galaxy, everybody wanted Chris Pratt for everything. The one-time Parks and Rec supporting player was suddenly being offered almost every leading man role in Hollywood. He signed on to star in Jurassic World, and in just a few short months he was rumored to be attached to both Indiana Jones and Ghostbusters reboots. Pratt has addressed those two rumors saying he knows nothing about either one.

Following their massive success with the Jump Street franchise and The LEGO Movie, just about everyone wants to get into the Phil Lord and Chris Miller business. The duo have proven their value with both animated and live-action features (as well as pulling off the near-impossible by making a great comedy sequel), so it’s hardly surprising to hear that Warner Bros. is seeking the pair to join the DC Universe.

Here’s something strange in the neighborhood: Deadline reports that Sony isn’t waiting for Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters reboot (with its cast of comedy all-stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon) to debut before planning additional Ghostbuster sequels or spinoffs. They’re already getting to work on what the trade describes as a “guy-themed” offshoot with an all-male cast.

In addition to the original Ghostbusters films, there’s plenty of movies and TV shows that might serve as inspiration to Paul Feig for his upcoming all-female reboot. He might turn to effective horror comedies, like Peter Jackson’s underrated The Frighteners, or recent New Zealand horror favorite Housebound. Instead, Feig has revealed one of his sources of inspiration for the reboot, and it’s kind of surprising…and maybe also a little disappointing?

When it was revealed that director Paul Feig was going to reboot Ghostbusters with an all-female cast, the general assumption was that Ghostbusters 3 was dead and buried. Gone forever. Kaput. Never to be mentioned again. But, Dan Aykroyd never got that memo. Aykroyd, who co-wrote and starred in the original films, has spent years talking up Ghostbusters 3 and he’s not going to let silly little things like an actual, official, studio-sanctioned remake with a cast and release date get in the way.

‘Ghostbusters’ was a huge hit, spawning a sequel and an all-female remake, but it almost was never ‘Ghostbusters’ at all.

I’m about to say something that I never thought I would say in my entire life. It makes me sick to my stomach to even type such heresy, but here goes: Bill Murray is wrong. I’m getting out ahead of all the impending ‘Ghostbusters II’ hate right now. ‘Ghostbusters II’ is not a bad sequel. It’s not a great sequel either, but it’s a totally satisfying follow-up. It doesn’t reinvent the wheel the way the first film did by blending of horror, science-fiction, and comedy into a unique and irresistible genre hybrid. But it keeps things rolling in a frothy, entertaining, and occasionally profound way. (You heard me.)

Is there anything better than a movie with a great theme song? Arguably, yes. But I’m still fond of theme songs anyway, particularly when said theme song shares an exact title with the movie it’s from. The eponymous movie theme song is a rare and sometimes strange breed; sort of like a hairless sphinx.

It’s no secret that we’re officially pumped for Paul Feig’s ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot—especially after that hilariously awesome trailer for his upcoming film ‘Spy,’ which reunites him with Melissa McCarthy. We recently reported that McCarthy is in talks to play one of the leads in ‘Ghostbusters,’ which seemed like a pretty likely scenario as soon as the film was announced. Feig has taken a forthcoming approach to talking about the reboot, and in his latest interview, he has even more reassuring information for fans of the franchise.
