There’s an old saying in Hollywood: “You can never have too many Ghostbusters movies.”
Sigourney Weaver was the only one of the core actors from the original film (minus Rick Moranis who retired from acting) who was not going to be appearing in the new Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig version. But, as it turns out, Weaver will be appearing in the new Ghostbusters movie, alongside Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Dan Aykroyd and Annie Potts.
The reaction to the new Ghostbusters reboot starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig has been…divisive to say the very least. At the very worst, it’s been downright hateful. Director Paul Feig has been as polite as possible to all the people who’ve come at him on Twitter, but even he reached his breaking point. After a series of particularly upsetting tweets, Feig had some harsh words for the haters: “Go f— yourself.”
Over the weekend we learned that Ernie Hudson will be making a cameo in Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters movie, making the original lineup of remaining Ghostbusters complete — though Hudson, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will not be reprising their roles from the classic film. In addition to these three great appearances, we’re also getting a cameo from Annie Potts, who originally played Ghostbusters receptionist Janine Melnitz.
In addition to appearances from original Ghostbusters cast members Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, Paul Feig’s upcoming film will also have a cameo from Ernie Hudson, which makes the original lineup of remaining Ghostbusters complete. Now if only Feig could get Annie Potts and Rick Moranis to appear. If only.
Spy is one of the funniest movies of the year, and even further proof of Paul Feig’s insane ability to make wonderful woman-centric comedies. The film is hitting DVD and Blu-ray soon, and two new featurettes have popped up online showing off two of the film’s key comedic ingredients: Rose Byrne and Jason Statham, the latter of whom took us by surprise and wound up being the funniest part of the whole movie.
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.
