This should come as no surprise given Bill Murray‘s latest rebuff of Ghostbusters 3, but according to Ivan Reitman, the next phase of the Ghostbusters franchise will be… A booting. I mean, a reboot.
I think Ghostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see.
Say what?! This, perhaps, slip of the tongue came out during a discussion with Collider about Dave, the Gary Ross-scripted 1993 movie starring Kevin Kline about a presidential impersonator who has to take the place of the real president when he has a stroke; it comes out on Blu-ray tomorrow.
So the question is if this is a real thing or if maybe Reitman was just spitballing, discussing the possible future of the film series according to his own idea and is not genuinely moving forward with a third movie with the original cast. Frankly, with the Murray “will he or won’t he” yo-yo game it would be unsurprising if there hasn’t already been a serious conversation about a reboot. After all, I think Ghostbusters is the only movie from the 80s left besides E.T. and Back to the Future to not get remade.
Let slip with your thoughts and anger below.
