Melissa McCarthy Leader Of Female Ghostbusters (Video)

We get an update in the above video from director Paul Feig about the upcoming Ghostbusters female reboot.

Feig says that Melissa McCarthy will be the leader of the team and also offers that the reboot gives them a chance to do things differently and not just follow the originals, especially with the ghosts/monsters and special effects.

Feig also doesn’t seem too thrilled about the recently announced Ghostbusters universe with the franchise expanding into merchandise, television and a male-driven Channing Tatum Ghostbusters film.

Feig actually dismisses the wider Ghostbusters Universe and offers it won’t affect his film and even states he doesn’t know if the Channing Tatum Ghostbusters movie is definitely happening.

He also offers the announcement was a big surprise to him, with apparently Sony not informing him of the new Ghostbusters venture.

Check out more in the video.

The female Ghostbusters reboot has a July 22, 2016 release also starring Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones.

Paul Feig Not Involved With Male Ghostbusters; Has Words For Haters

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:19649:]]

Director Paul Feig is launching the start of a new Ghostbusters universe with his movie featuring an all-female cast.

When the announcement was first made, some people on the internet weren’t too happy, and now Feig offers a further response to the haters.  Feig also says some people on the internet have a problem with him adding women into the movie.

“The biggest thing I’ve heard for the last four months is, ‘Thanks for ruining my childhood.’ It’s going to be on my tombstone when I die,” Feig told Variety. “It’s so dramatic. Honestly, the only way I could ruin your childhood is if I got into a time machine and went back and made you an orphan.

“I figure it’s some wacked-out teenager,” Feig continues. “But almost constantly it’s someone who’s bio says ‘Proud father of two!’ And has some high-end job. You’re raising children and yet you’re bashing me about putting women in my movie?”

Feig also offers that he isn’t involved in the new recently announced male Ghostbusters which looks to star Channing Tatum.

“I’d heard some rumblings about it,” Feig said. “Who knew there were so many ghosts to be busted in the world?”

It is noted that Feig states he is a fan of Tatum and the Russo Bros., who are rumored to direct, but Feig is concentrating on the ladies.

“All I know is my ladies are going to kick ass and I would not want to go into battle without them.”

Feig’s Ghostbusters has a July 22, 2016 release starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Leslie Jones.

With the announcement of the male Ghostbusters movie, Sony also announced a new production studio to oversee the franchise with Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd involved, which will see Ghostbusters expanded into not only movies, but TV and licensing.

Paul Feig Says Ghostbusters 3 Will Not Ruin Your Childhood

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18585:]]

Paul Feig is behind the Ghostbusters 3 reboot that will feature a squad of all-female Ghostbusters.

While wishing everyone a Happy New Year on Twitter, Feig has a message for the haters, which looks to include the original cast.

“Happy New Year to everybody,” Feig posted. “Even the Ghostbusters reboot haters.”

Feig then went on to continue that he promises not to ruin the haters’ childhoods.

“I love you all,” Feig said. “I promise I will try not to ruin your childhoods. #iswear.”

The Ghosbusters reboot has been said to be “scarier and more high-tech” than the originals, which will see the all-female Ghostbusters form to face an executed villain who, as a result of an electrical storm, is able to raise an army of the dead.

Rumored actors for the reboot include Cecily Strong, Peter Dinklage, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy and Ryan Gosling.

Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum are also possibly involved in a Ghostbusters spinoff.

Leaked: Ghostbusters 3 Plot Details

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18381:]]

Leaked Sony e-mails a a result of an attack on the company’s servers have already revealed a list of possible actors for Ghostbusters 3 as well as a potenial spinoff starring Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt.

Now the latest to have leaked is potential plot details as e-mails from Paul Feig reveal the director’s ideas for the reboot.

Vulture got their hands on the following, which may be considered spoilers for the film if they make their way into the final script of Ghostbusters 3:

Feig explains Ghostbusters 3 is  reboot and not a sequel: Humans aren’t afraid of no ghosts, he says, because they haven’t met them yet.

The film will be “scarier and more hi-tech” than the original Ghostbusters.

The villain will be a convicted murderer, ideally played by Peter Dinklage, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by “a supercharged electrical storm.”  

This gives the villain the power to raise an army of ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history.

These ghosts than will have to be busted by “four very different women” who have to “figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world.” 

Other details mentioned include:

For greater franchise opportunities, Feig tells Pascal that the Ghostbusters will work for the U.S. government, but because ghosts don’t officially exist, the government will have to continually disavow their relationship. 

Feig offers a tidbit about Cecily Strong’s character as she is described as the new Ghostbusters‘ bureaucratic nemesis who is “always saying terrible things about them in press conferences and then apologizing to them behind the scenes.”

Leaked: Chris Pratt & Channing Tatum Ghostbusters Spinoff

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18358:]]

Additional information regarding Sony’s Ghostbusters plans have leaked as a result of hacker attacks against the company.

In addition to details that Ryan Gosling, Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer, and Lizzy Caplan are interested in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, it’s become known a possible spinoff may be made.

The Ghostbusters spinoff would feature Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt; Captain America directors Joe and Anthony Russo would be on board as producers, with Ghostbusters 3 director Paul Fieg possibly directing.

The Daily Mail got ahold of a batch of e-mails revealing Tatum’s enthusiasm as he compares the spinoff to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins.

“Let us show the world The DarkSide and let us fight it with all the glory and epicness of a HUGE BATMAN BEGINS MOVIE. I know we can make this a huge franchise. Fun adventure craziness. COME OONNNN!!!”

An email from Hannah Minghella, co-president of production for Columbia Pictures, was then sent to Amy Pascal, head of Sony movies, outlining the possible plan:

“They want to make it simultaneously super scary while also super funny. They love the idea that they are mortal heroes who are believers in the paranormal and the only people who can defend mankind from a paranormal threat. I know we’re mid negotiations with Paul [Feig]. I’m not sure whether we’d ever develop two different versions simultaneously. Joe Russo is open to the idea that both movies could be developed in partnership so they compliment one another within the same Ghostbusters universe. Apparently the Russos are very close to Paul and Joe suggested Paul could be attached to direct both. Personally I think it’s possible for the female version to co-exist with this other version so maybe they’re not mutually exclusive.”

It’s currently unknown if the Ghostbusters spinoff was approved, as Pascal replied only with:

 “fuckkk.”

Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt starred together in the 2012 movie 10 Years.

Other leaked info revealed Tatum involved with a crossover between Jump Street and Men In Black.

Leaked: Sony Plans To Sue Bill Murray & Potential Ghostbusters 3 Cast

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:18312:]]

On top of all the leaked Spider-Man information, now details for Sony’s Ghostbusters 3 reboot have become known.

Paul Feig’s new Ghostbusters will feature an all-female cast. Feig previously stated he would make room for the original actors, but in all new roles. Of course, Sony would love to have Bill Murray on board; however, the actor has been reluctant to participate.

Now leaked e-mails reveal Sony plans to sue Bill Murray if Murray declines to be in the third Ghostbusters film, which must mean Bill Murray is contractually obligated to appear.

An e-mail (via The Daily Beast) from David Steinberg, head of Sony Pictures Entertainment’s legal department, to Leah Weil, SPE’s general counsel, mentions Murray’s reluctance and Sony’s subsequent response with potential litigation. It’s noted they didn’t want to publicize the matter as the publicity would be bad for Sony with Murray being such a fan-favorite celebrity.

“In order to more fully evaluate our position if Bill Murray again declines to engage on ‘Ghostbusters’, AG requested that we identify ‘aggressive’ litigation counsel with whom we can consult to evaluate our alternatives and strategize. [Harkening back to his prior employer, of course, raised the name of David Boies.] Personally, while I’m fine with aggressive, I think we are in much worse shape if this goes public so seems to me we should look for someone who isn’t seeking the spotlight.”

A separate e-mail then lists the possible cast for Ghostbusters 3, which includes Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Melissa McCarthy. Lawrence recently stated she took a meeting with Feig as well.

“Agree that everyone is way too nervous about how this issue and how we. present it but it’s isn’t a sequel to the 80s movies and it is gonna be totally original with completely different characters and our job is to find a clever way to connect the movie to the original franchise so that we can use all the assets and everything that is great about the original franchise,” the email read. “Paul’s movie is gonna be the first one and from what I’m hearing jennifer lawrence and Emma stone and Melissa McCarthy and Amy schumer and liszzy [Lizzy] Kaplan just to name a few have already said thy wanted to be in….”

Sigourney Weaver Not Too Thrilled For Ghostbusters 3 “Ghost Babes” (Video)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17798:]]

Plans are underway for a third Ghostbusters film, which will feature an all-female team as well as be a reboot directed by Paul Feig.

Feig previously stated he was open to having the original cast return, but in new roles for the film.

Well, the cast of the original Ghostbusters appeared on the Today Show to promote the new Ghostbusters Blu-Ray that is now available, with Al Roker bringing up Ghostbusters 3.

Roker directly asks Bill Murray, “When is there going to be a Ghostbusters 3?”

Murray responds by stating it’s hard to recreate the magic, but hears there will be a female cast.

“It’s really hard to recreate something that was so beautiful. So wonderful,” Murray said. “The studio would like to make a movie and continue the franchise. I hear there is going to be one that is all women.”

“Ghost babes,” Sigourney Weaver interjected.

“Ghost babes. Something like that,” Bill Murray stated.

Ghostbuster babes,” Weaver added.

Roker then suggested Sigourney Weaver could still be in it with her reaction less than enthusiastic as she rolls her eyes.

Murray then suggested Ernie Hudson could also have a roll, with the cast laughing and Hudson saying, “Go for it. I’m an actor.”

Hudson previously made comments where he was dismissive to the notion of a rebooted ghostbusters as well.

Check out the video for the full interview.

Ernie Hudson & James Gunn Comment On Female Ghostbusters

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17476:]]

It’s been announced that Paul Feig will direct a Ghostbusters reboot featuring a female team of ghostbusters.

Some people aren’t happy, such as original ghostbuster, Ernie Hudson.

“I heard it was going to be a total reboot, and that it would have nothing to do with the other two movies,” he said, reports The Telegraph. “If it has nothing to do with the other two movies, and it’s all female, then why are you calling it Ghostbusters? I love females. I hope that if they go that way at least they’ll be funny, and if they’re not funny at least hopefully it’ll be sexy. I love the idea of including women, I think that’s great. But all-female I think would be a bad idea. I don’t think the fans want to see that.”

Now Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has commented on the female team as well, but takes a slightly different view.

“I can understand how people can be upset about a Ghostbusters reboot – people are always upset about reboots. But to be upset because the Ghostbusters are women?! HOW DOES HAVING A PENIS HELP YOU CATCH GHOSTS? If anything, it could be a hindrance, because you could snag it on something,” Gunn posted on his Facebook.

The cast of the new Ghostbusters hasn’t been announced as of yet, but it Feig did say he would make room for the originals, but in brand new roles.

Female Ghostbusters 3 To Be A Reboot

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17446:]]

Yesterday saw the news that Paul Feig will direct Ghosbusters 3 featuring a female squad of ghostbusters.

Now Feig is stating the film will be a reboot.

EW.com caught up with the director to get an update where Feig states he initially didn’t want to do it because of all the preceding history; however, Feig says he came up with the idea for an all-female cast and also a brand new story.

My favorite thing to do is work with funny women. I was like, what if it was an all female cast? If they were all women?  Suddenly, my mind kind of exploded: that would be really fun. And then I thought, well, what if we just make it new? It’s not coming into the world that existed before. It’s always hard if the world has gone through this big ghost attack, how do you do it again? I wanted to come into our world where there’s talk of ghosts but they’re not really credible, and so what would happen in our world if this happened today?

Feig continues with mention the first two movies do not exist in his new Ghosbusters universe.

Yeah. I love origin stories. That’s my favorite thing. I love the first one so much I don’t want to do anything to ruin the memory of that. So it just felt like, let’s just restart it because then we can have new dynamics. I want the technology to be even cooler. I want it to be really scary, and I want it to happen in our world today that hasn’t gone through it so it’s like, oh my God what’s going on?

Just because it’s a reboot, doesn’t mean the new Ghostbusters won’t feature any of the original cast, but if they do comeback, they will get different roles.

Well, I mean, look, those are my comedy heroes. So as far as I’m concerned, anybody wants to come back I welcome with open arms. It would just be in different roles now, but it would be fun to figure out how to do that.

Feig continues with mention his version just won’t be a rehash of what came before.

We want to have fun with giving nods to what came before, but we don’t want to be bound by it because Katie and I already have talked at length and we have really fun ideas for things. But we want to tell the stories that we would like to tell, which means we want to tell the character arcs that we want to tell, which means we want to start with some of our characters in a different place or with different personalities and things they have to overcome and learn through the experience of this first movie. My number one thing is always about character and what is somebody learning from or transforming through whatever happens to them in the movie. So I think there will be definitely room to play with that. We want to do clever nods to it, but not cloying nods to it. We want to have the ability to really bring it into modern day.

Everything is up for grabs right now. I look at this the same way a superhero movie launches where it’s always fun to see, like, what are they going to do with the costumes this time? What are they going to do with the hardware this time? It’s not going to be, here is the exact same stuff. It’s also not going to go, screw you, if you like that stuff, it’s all completely different. We’re going to have fun with it, but again, bring it into our time period. I’m a big hardware nerd when it comes to sci-fi and all of that so I love all the gear and I love all that. We’re really going to have fun with playing with the science of it. I think fans will be very happy with what we do because it has fun with what came before but it’s new. It’s just a new, fun take on it.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:17438:]]

Feig is known for directed Bridesmaids and The Heat, with Dippold having written The Heat as well as episodes of Mad TV and Parks and Recreation.

Ghostbusters 3 Set To Continue Following Dead Of Harold Ramis

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:13959:]]

Harold Ramis, 69, died yesterday following complications due to a rare autoimmune disease known as vasculitis in which the body attacks its own blood vessels.

Ramis came down with an infection in 2010 as a result of vasculitis and saw a relapse in 2011 as well.

The actor passed away at his Chicago home surrounded by his loved ones and wife Erica Mann Ramis, the Chicago Tribune reported.

Harold Ramis is known for writing Stripes as well as portraying Egon Spengler in Ghostbusters.

Ghostbusters 3 has been in development for sometime with it learned Ramis was set to have a cameo in the upcoming movie.

It’s now learned that Ghostbusters 3 will continue following the death of Harold Ramis as THR reports the script may need an adjustment.

It’s said Ghostbusters 3 is in active development, which may begin filming next year, and director Ivan Reitman is set to meet with Sony about the changes.

Reportedly, Ghostbusters 3 sees the originals, including Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, pass the baton to a younger group of characters.

Aykroyd and Reitman offered the following in an e-mail to Entertainment Weekly:

“Deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my brilliant, gifted, funny friend, co-writer/performer and teacher Harold Ramis. May he now get the answers he was always seeking,” Aykroyd said.

“The world has lost a wonderful, truly original, comedy voice with the passing of Harold Ramis,” Reitman said. “He possessed the most agile mind I’ve ever witnessed. He always had the clearest sense of what was funny and how to create something in a new clever way. He was very generous about making everyone around him look better and smarter. Harold had an extraordinary impact on my career and I loved him like a brother. My heart goes out to his children, and his lovely wife, Erica. He will be profoundly missed.”

Ghostbusters 3 Could Film In Cleveland With Emma Stone & Jonah Hill Rumored

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:12217:]]

Ghostbusters 3 might actually be a possibility as some updates to filming and the cast have hit the net.

According to the NBC affiliate WKYC, a Sony executive has named Cleveland as a potential location to shoot Ghostbusters 3 with mention that filming is to begin in 2014.

The other update comes in the form of a rumor that Emma Stone and Jonah Hill are attached. The website Schmoes Know says the two have been offered the parts of Jeremy and Anna, respectively. Stone and Hill were featured together in Superbad.

Regarding the return of Bill Murray, while it still may be up in the air it seems unlikely. Previously Dan Aykroyd said they would move on without Murray and even offered Ghostbusters 3 could be a “passing the torch” type of movie.

Bear in mind lots of comments and speculation has surrounded Ghostbusters 3 for years, but with two new mentions coming in a matter of days it has to be looked at as a good sign.

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:12218:]]

Aykroyd Is Off Ghostbuster 3 If Not Started Within A Few Months

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4475:]]Ghostbusters 3” might finally get underway soon — or it just might get put into the containment chamber for good.

Dan Aykroyd, who has been working on variations of the script for years, gave an update on the project and while he hinted at possible additional Ghost Busters movies, he also stated that if “Ghost Busters 3” doesn’t get going, the principal actors on the project will be moving on.

Now, this would add quite a bump to Sony’s bottom line, quite a bump. If they make this movie, in its current shape, they would be looking at a pretty hefty, nine-figure return. And so I’m hoping they get on to move it, but if they don’t, I have multiple trains. I’ve got tracks six, seven, and nine, and that’s four. I’ll be moving on to other things, as will Ivan, by the way. We can’t wait forever. And now’s the time to tell the picture company, and I’d say this quite publically, it’s time now to sit down and make this movie, or you will lose your main principals, and you won’t be able to make it without us, because we have rights, and now is time to make the movie… You don’t take advantage of that in the next three or four months, I’ll see you in Australia, where we’ll be selling Crystal Head.

Aykroyd also states that if his pal Bill Murray would have went with one of the previous scripts, “Ghostbusters 3″ would have been released this Summer and been a blockbuster.

Well, let me say this: Had Billy chosen to do the Eisenberg/Stupnitsky script of two years ago, it would be out this summer, and it would be a massive hit. If Billy had said yes, it would have satisfied his performance and what he wanted in the movie, it would have satisfied his performing skill and how he wanted to be depicted in the movie, it would have satisfied the studio, the writers who wrote it, everybody — Ivan, me, Harold, we were all happy with it. Then when he said, “Absolutely not, I’m not in this,” we had to go and really rethink things. He abrogated his say in the project, abrogated his rights to have any say in it by refusing the third offer from the picture company, which his lawyer put before him, and Billy said, “No, I can’t respond.” Now we have to move on, but we’ll always leave a hole for him. He’s always there. He can always come back at any time and be rebuilt into it, as far as I’m concerned. That’s up to his lawyer and the picture company to work out, but creatively, he will always be a part of it.

Aykroyd also hints at a previous story they have written for the new movie that could eventually make its way into further Ghostbusters sequels.

Man-hell-ttan, and the Ghostbusters in hell, would be so solid, but we gotta get maybe one or two made before that.

Ghost Busters 3 Expected To Begin Filming Summer 2013

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3582:]]

Within the last month or so, news for Ghost Busters 3 has really picked up.

Word surfaced that the film would more or less be a reboot, which would see the original Ghostbusters that do decide to return (hint: everybody minus Bill Murray) pass the torch to a new group that would go on to carry the franchise.

Now we actually get news about when filming will begin on Ghostbusters 3.

Director Ivan Reitman happens to be attached to Kevin Costner’s new pro-football movie, Draft Day, one that happens to have the blessing of the NFL, and one that happens to see Costner as the GM of the Buffalo Bills (where the home offices of Cosmic Book News are located). However, it appears as if there may be some scheduling conflicts as Deadline notes both Reitman and Costner are really busy.

Costner is busy filming the new Jack Ryan movie with Star Trek‘s Chris Pine, and according to Deadline, Ivan Reitman is set to begin filming Ghostbusters 3 next summer.

Our local news did report that apparently Reitman is interested in filming Draft Day beginning in April, which would give him only a few months before Ghostbusters 3; however, Deadline does note the short window of opportunity and the difficulty in timing, with mention of Paramount possibly deciding on doing Draft Day after Ghostbusters 3, as well as Costner’s next movie, Three Days To Kill.

So Ghostbusters 3 filming in 2013 looks to be a go.

Ghostbusters 3: “Still Working On it” Says Director Ivan Reitman

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:3284:]]

I believe the last we heard about a “Ghostbusters 3″ was that it was in the works and was said to possibly be a “pass the torch” movie in that it would feature new characters that would go on to star in their own Ghostbusters movies.

Actually, a lot has been said about “Ghostbusters 3,”: from Bill Murray appearing as a ghost, to Bill Murray throwing the script in the trash, to Bill Murray not appearing at all, which led to the above.

Now the latest comes from director Ivan Reitman, who in an interview with The Collider, mentioned “Ghostbusters 3,” and from the sounds of it, the movie is still up in the air, but not totally out of the picture.

“I think Ghostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see,” Reitman said.

That does sound like good news – “we’re working on it” – so all hope for a “Ghostbusters 3″ is not lost.

Still, with “Ghostbusters 3″ not looking like Bill Murray is going to show and the movie being a reboot, could it be any good?

Currently, the paranormal genre is seeing a surge in popularity, with the recent found-footage movies as well as the popular paranormal series on SyFy and a couple upcoming on AMC.

Any chance the new Ghostbusters could be a bit more serious?

Or would that detract from the original too much leading to huge audience let down?

No Bill Murray For Ghostbuster 3 Says Dan Aykroyd; Going To Pass The Torch

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:2464:]]

Ghostbusters 3″ has been on and off again for I don’t know how long, as it seemed everything was depending on Bill Murray’s involvement.

Murray was once said to cameo as a ghost, and then said to not like the script etc. etc.

The latest comes from Dan Aykroyd (via the Metro) who now says Bill Murray will not be involved, and that they will be passing the torch to a “new generation.”

Is Ghostbusters 3 finally happening?

DAN AYKROYD: Yes, we’ve got a brilliant new writer on it and we’ll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We’re working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I’m confident we’ll be in production in the next year.

It’s been a long process, hasn’t it?

AYKROYD: Yes, but now we’ve got the studio on side. We’ve tried a few concepts which weren’t right but now we’ve got a good structure and will make it happen.

Is Bill Murray doing it?

AYKROYD: No, I can tell you he won’t be involved.

How do you feel about that?

AYKROYD: It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on. It’s time to make the third one.
