BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Ghostbusters is a horror-comedy franchise that is certainly better known for its comedy than its horror - but there has been a good amount of suggestion hinting that the scales may tip a bit in the opposite direction with the upcoming reboot.
Before the new Ghostbusters was announced as a reboot with Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy and Leslie Jones, Dan Aykroyd was busy working on a story line for a more traditional sequel. Though director Paul Feig plans on shooting his interpretation this summer in New York for a 2016 release, the original Ghostbuster seems to think that his version could still happen.
Director Paul Feig has already loaded up his all-female Ghostbusters cast with a good number of Saturday Night Live players. However, it seems that Feig isn't done yet mining SNL for castmembers, as new rumors have surfaced suggesting he has his eyes on another one.
For Sunday night’s SNL 40th anniversary special, some of the best moments happened off camera. But one of the greatest things is this photo of the ladies who’ll be leading the new Ghostbusters movie into cinematic history.
Once I got over my little hissy fit and actually thought about it, I realized something. This wasn’t a bad idea. In fact, it might be a pretty good idea. And not just for one reason, but five.
With the new Ghostbusters cast announced, perhaps now's a good time to catch up with one of the project's biggest adversaries... Ernie Hudson himself. But beware, for his latest update might surprise you.
With the venerable question of "who you gonna call?" answered with the recent announcement of an all-female cast, the new Ghostbusters reboot looks set to tackle something strange in the neighborhood. Now we are finally starting to get some feedback from the celebrated surviving cast members of the original film.
Earlier today, Sony Pictures delivered rather huge news about the Ghostbusters reboot, announcing that they had officially signed deals with four actresses to play the lead roles in the movie. What the big reveal lacked, however, were any kinds of details about the characters that each of the ladies will play. Now those details have started to come out.
Who ya gonna call? Paul Feig finally revealed who he dialed up to star in his all-female Ghostbusters reboot, and the choices are incredibly exciting, and funnier than you’d ever imagined.
Today is the day when, all around the world, fireworks are ignited as people celebrate the departure of 2014 and the arrival of 2015. So it seems only appropriate that we would end our year in cinema with a bang as well:
If you're a fan of Paul Feig's work on such films as Bridesmaids and The Heat, then you're going to be surprised with his take on Ghostbusters for two reasons: it's going to be very scary, yet not so sweary.
The Daily Beast continues to mine material out of countless Sony emails, and this time unearths a series of conversations between Channing Tatum and Sony Chair Amy Pascal about the 21 Jump Street star kick-starting a Ghostbusters spinoff with himself and Chris Pratt in the leads.
The Sony Pictures hack has already revealed that the top five contenders for the female leads in Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot are Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, Amy Schumer, Lizzy Caplan and Jennifer Lawrence - but now new details are surfacing about the availabilities for male actors in the project.
Among the leaked drama that has been flooding the internet due to the recent Sony hacking scandal, one exchanged e-mail discussed a legal suit over the new Ghostbusters film and Bill Murray’s involvement.
The multi-talented actress already has two franchises to her name in The Hunger Games and the X-Men series. When she isn’t lending her powers to a tentpole, she’s contending for Oscars in a David O. Russell drama like American Hustle or Joy. But her name is now in the Ghostbusters conversation, mainly because she put it there.
Rebel Wilson has admitted that she has already held early discussions about starring in Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters remake. But is her admission a sign that Paul Feig needs to calm down before he rushes into any casting decisions?
Did it work out for Candy? You could say. The incredibly gifted comedian showed up in his own smash hit in 1984 – the mermaid comedy Splash. He followed that up with Brewster’s Millions, Summer Rental and Volunteers (also with Tom Hanks) in 1985.
For all of you Ghostbusters fans out there, we have a look into what Winston Zeddemore could have been. Bill Murray fans, you might not like this story.
A Ghostbusters reunion that saw Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd come together has produced probably the greatest image you’ll see all day. It sees the film’s cast joyously smiling and it is utterly contagious.
Product placement has become an unfortunately big part of modern studio filmmaking, but there are some ads in movies that we can still appreciate: the fake ones. Rather than actually trying to tell us something, they merely exist as a fun gag or even sometimes as a plot device. And now you can see a whole bunch of them mashed together in this fantastic new supercut.
It's not hard to see how simple logic would lead a person to believe that Melissa McCarthy will star in the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot. But while it makes all the sense in the world that McCarthy would be joining the cast, nothing has been made official at this point.
If they are starting over from scratch with a screenplay, it might take some time. But it all sounds official. What do you think?
