Rumor’s about the new Ghostbusters movie being an all female cast recently set off a controversy across the net. Many of the fans from the original movies, such as Zeca Oliveira (noticias.uol.com.br), were upset at the drastic change (from all male to all female) and weren’t afraid to share their opinions with the rest of the online community.
New information has been released indicating that there are actually four Ghostbusters movies in the works: The all female reboot, a Christ Pratt/Channing Tatum one, another one where the two teams cross over, and possibly a prequel.
It has also been indicated that they won’t just be “busting” ghosts, as in the original movies, but will in fact be a“catch-all umbrella for a world of supernatural FX comedies”. This gives them a wider variety of antagonist options, and if Sony keeps up the good work like they’ve done with their Marvel Franchise, then we might be seeing regularGhostbuters movie releases for years to come!
The year was 1984 when the original Ghostbusters filmed showed up in box offices and the film did quite well during its run with 5 consecutive weeks at the #1 spot. Since that initial premiere of the ghost-catching business supernatural comedy there has been a sequel and various offshoots. Dan Akroyd has now expressed publicly that he is all for a reboot of the original that uses an all-female cast instead, but Ricardo Tosto says his real desire is to finally get Ghostbusters 3 past the script stage and onto viewing screens, which the guys over at Globo TV would love to see.
However, the cast would still be stellar with the inclusion of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, and Ernie Hudson all willing to return to Ghostbusters 3 and take on the paranormal activity they fought so ferociously in the originals. The release of a Ghostbusters 3 would likely produce different box-office numbers due to the decreasing brand awareness as the years go on. Today’s audiences are transfixed on the next superhero saga and those films would be competing for the same dollars as a Ghostbusters release. However, Dan Aykroyd definitely looks to be fielding the possibilities and prepping to have some type of release in the future even if the full details are yet to be determined.
