It’s been 25 years because the first Ghostbusters movie got here out and, though we have had an all-female reboot, followers of the unique have nonetheless been questioning/hoping that possibly sooner or later somebody would get collectively the unique forged and take a look at their finest to not make a bland cash-in, however truly stay as much as the 1984 basic. Today, that day has come.
The authentic Ghostbusters was directed by Ivan Reitman. The new one can be directed by his son, Jason, the director of such motion pictures as Juno (with Ellen Page and the indie music) and Up In The Air (George Clooney as travelling guy-who-fires-people). Director Junior advised Entertainment Weekly of his unimpeachable credentials for director-of-sequel: “I’ve at all times considered myself as the primary Ghostbusters fan, after I was a 6-year-old visiting the set. I needed to make a film for all the opposite followers.” Fair sufficient. As for a way precisely the brand new film can be related to the 2 from the 80s, “it will likely be the subsequent chapter within the authentic franchise. It shouldn’t be a reboot. What occurred within the ‘80s occurred within the ‘80s, and that is set within the current day.” Whether or not meaning a return by Bill Murray and firm remains to be unclear; this data will come later as a result of, per Reitman Jr., the film, as its launch attracts nearer, will “unwrap like a gift.”
How does dad really feel about this? In brief, proud: “it will likely be a passing of the torch each inside and outside. It was a call he needed to come to himself. He labored actually arduous to be impartial and developed an exquisite profession on his personal. So I used to be fairly stunned when he got here to me with Gil [Kenan] and mentioned, ‘I do know I’ve been saying for 10 years I’m the final one who ought to make a Ghostbusters film, however…I’ve this concept.’ Literally, I used to be crying by the top of it, it was so emotional and humorous.”
The new Ghostbusters is ready to launch in 2020.
