Aykroyd, Ramis, and Reitman had their world worked out, quite literally, to a science, and while I’m skeptical about whether Feig will retain that same level of interest in metaphysics and parapsychology, this makes me excited to see the new gear and gadgets his 21st-century GHOSTBUSTERS will be breaking out.


The Making of Ghostbusters: How Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and “The Murricane” Built “The Perfect Comedy”
Lesley M. M. Blume wrote:
For the record, Dan Aykroyd really does believe in ghosts. “It’s the family business, for God’s sake,” he says from his family’s farmhouse in Ontario, site of Aykroyd séances for generations. Aykroyd’s great-grandfather was a renowned spiritualist; the family had its own regular medium to channel souls from the other side. His grandfather—a telephone engineer—investigated the possibility of contacting the dead via radio technology. His father authored a well-regarded history of ghosts; strange lights halo his daughter in photographs.

Yet Aykroyd was the first to turn the supernatural into a highly lucrative global franchise. Drawing on his spectral heritage, Aykroyd sat down one day and started writing Ghostbusters. The finished result catapulted a crew of already-famous Saturday Night Live and Second City comedians to international superstardom, and became a watershed in the industry, eroding the once insurmountable barrier between television and film actors. “Ghostbusters—one of Columbia’s most iconic films of all time—[also] basically invented the genre of special effects-driven comedy,” says Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures.

“Danny was one of the writing geniuses of our era,” says Ivan Reitman, who directed Meatballs and Stripes and co-produced Animal House. “He created the Coneheads, the Blues Brothers: all of this comes out of that wonderful brain.” Ovitz adds that Aykroyd “was an idea factory . . . the Mount Vesuvius of original ideas.” At any given moment, he recalls, “We probably had 10 Aykroyd ideas . . . in various phases of development.”

While sitting around the family farmhouse, Aykroyd says he read an article in a parapsychology journal and he got the idea about trapping ghosts. “And I thought, I’ll devise a system to trap ghosts . . . and marry it to the old ghost [films] of the 1930s,” Aykroyd says. “Virtually every comedy team did a ghost movie—Abbott and Costello, Bob Hope. I was a big fan of [them.]” He began hammering out a screenplay.

“[It was originally] written for John [Belushi] and I,” he says. The nascent project was immediately dealt a blow when Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982. “I was writing a line for John, and [talent manager and eventual Ghostbusters executive producer] Bernie Brillstein called and said they just found him,” recalls Aykroyd. “It was a Kennedy moment. . . . We loved each other as brothers.”

Yet the screenplay that eventually became Ghostbusters would at least contain an homage to Belushi: the now-famous, green gelatinous ghost Slimer was based on “John’s body,” Aykroyd says now. “I will admit to having an inspiration along those lines.”

source: slash film

Could it be the Ghostbusters 3 computer animated movie that has been in development for a few years now. Dan Aykroyd confirmed the development of an animated Ghostbusters 3 in an interview last year.

Dan Aykroyd wrote:"I wrote a script called Hell Bent, Ghostbusters go to hell basically. The premise is that it's Manhellton. There's Manhattan and ManHELLton. And if you can build an inter-dimensional phase system so that you can go from one dimension to another. We've succeeded doing that and we go to the hell side.

Downtown, Folley Square - where the cops are, they're all blue minotaurs. Central Park is this huge deep mine, green demons there, surrounded by black onyx thousand foot high apartment buildings with classic red devils. Very wealthy. And we go visit a Donald Trump like character - Mr. Siffler. Lou Siffler, Lucifer. So I will say we meet the devil in it. It won't happen as a live action because Billy [Murray] won't come on to the live action but he will voice his part, as a CGI animated project. With CGI, and animation, the way these cartoons are done, we can do everything I wrote in that script for a lot less money.

Rumour: Ghostbusters 3 To Be An Animated Film?


{EXCLUSIVE} “GHOSTBUSTERS” ANIMATED FEATURE IN DEVELOPMENT AT SONY
Sony is developing an animated Ghostbusters film to complement the two live-action reboots already in the works
Josh Lyons wrote:There’s something strange in the neighborhood… specifically in Culver City, where Sony is developing yet another iteration of its Ghostbusters franchise with an animated feature. The GHOSTBUSTERS ANIMATED FILM is being produced by Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman through their Montecito Picture Company, with Ali Bell and Kristine Belson overseeing for Sony Pictures Animation.

The animated action-comedy will follow a similar logline to that of the 1984 original, in which a group of scientists team up to fight off ghosts, using gadgets and gizmos to capture the menacing ghouls who have invaded Manhattan.

Sony made waves earlier this year when it was revealed that Paul Feig’s reboot of the franchise would feature Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones donning the iconic beige jumpsuits. The studio then doubled-down on the property, by announcing that a “counterpart” film would return to an all-male cast, and furthermore, would be the first project in a new subsidiary of Sony labeled Ghost Corps, to be headed up by Reitman and Dan Aykroyd.

Now, with an animated feature in the works, it seems as though Sony is attempting to rejuvenate the franchise’s fanbase, which currently suffers from a lack of youth. The Ghostbusters reboot is largely seen as a nostalgia grab, aimed at sentimental adults who are eager to revisit the beloved characters of their childhood–evidenced by the social media frenzy generated when the studio’s revealed Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray would all make make cameos in Feig’s film. An animated feature targeted at a younger demographic, however, could pave the way for a new generation of Ghostbusters fans–fans who, as they grow up, can continue to feed the meter on inevitable live-action sequels.

It’s not the least bit surprising that Sony head Tom Rothman, still recovering from a devastating hacking scandal and a summer of headline-making flops (see: Pixels and Aloha), wants to wring out every last drop of love for the slime-covered scientists. With the announcement of Ghost Corps and the Russo brothers’ all-male version, Rothman himself said, “It’s just the beginning of what I hope will be a lot of wonderful movies.”

Ghost Corps builds upon a trend that’s been spreading in Hollywood, with studios pumping more resources into their biggest tentpoles and launching them on multiple platforms and in various formats–essentially creating entire mini-studios around single properties.

Paramount notably founded a ‘Transformers writers’ room’ last spring, headed up by Akiva Goldsman, Michael Bay, and Lorenzo Di Bonaventura. Shortly thereafter, the studio announced that it would be extending the billion-dollar franchise through a sequel, spin-offs and–yes–an animated feature to be penned by Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.

Disney, too, is dead-set on making the most out of their acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, with sequels and spin-offs planned far, far into the future. And it seems as though every week brings yet another Marvel comic book adaptation to the multiplex or Netflix.

Speaking of Marvel, Sony’s other big-name property, The Amazing Spider-Man, didn’t pan out the way the studio may have hoped, with Andrew Garfield’s Peter Parker put to rest after just two films. Nevertheless, the studio is in pre-production with yet another reboot, this time starring young Tom Holland as the web-slinging superhero, and just last February, announced a cooperative deal with Marvel that will allow the character to appear in the The Avengers: Civil War. Speculation has been swirling that Sony will do with Spider-Man what they’re doing with Ghostbusters–launching sequels, spin-offs, and–yes–an animated feature, which is already underway with Phil Lord and Chris Miller at the helm. But for the time being, when it comes to a branded franchise that can spawn multiple films across various platforms for years to come, who is Sony gonna call? Well, you get the idea.

Producers are currently trying to scare up the perfect screenwriter to pen the script.

I cannot get excited about this film. It's looking like it's really going to be nothing more than a bachelorette party. Like Bridesmaids with ghosts. "Oh, look at that Melissa McCarthy! Isn't she outrageous?"

There's a couple of below average jokes in that trailer.

It just felt like they'd given Ghostbusters the 'Bridemaids' treatment - similar comedy etc.

I'm also curious as to where it sits in the original universe - the fact that it looks like it's set 30 years after and yet they don't seem to know about the hearse or anything about the original team but that may just be the trailer. I'm kinda hoping if they go down that route, it gets a little self referential, there could be some good comedy there but as the film goes - I'm getting Scooby Doo 2 vibes, which aren't good.

As Dippold explained, "One other reason to do it this way is today’s scientists don’t believe in the paranormal anymore. And so to say ghosts have existed for the past 30 years, it’s just a new world. In the original it’s so fun when the ghosts are unleashed on the city for the first time. It’s just such a fun thing. You don’t want to skip over it."

Feig added, "We liked the idea that in today’s world there are all these ghost shows, Ghost Hunters and such, and you’re like, ‘Are they crazy?’ And so in our world today if a ghost appeared that would be a phenomenal event. It would be less if it were like, ‘Oh, yeah, that happened awhile ago.’"


This reads like a quote from Hårry Knowles.

Pretty much what I was expecting, minus Melissa McCarthy falling down. They must be saving that for the second trailer.

This looks pretty limp so far. I like Kristen Wiig, but she looks bored here. I've never liked McCarthy's one note bullshit. I think it's time to retire the loud sassy black lady stereotype. That shit is embarrassing. Justin Beiber seems to be the only one trying here and I'm sure her character will be the one bright spot in the whole thing.

That bit about McCarthy being possessed was legitimately bad. The ghosts look all right.

I'll pass on this one.

Original ‘Ghostbusters’ to Return to Theaters
Fathom Events will be re-releasing the film in over 750 theaters across the nation on June 8
Maria Cavassuto wrote:As if the quadruple threat of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, plus a side dish of Chris Hemsworth, wasn’t enough to get you excited for the new “Ghostbusters,” Sony Pictures is reviving the original film to get fans revved up for the reboot.

Fathom Events, which is shared by AMC, Regal and Cinemark Theaters, will be re-releasing the film in over 750 theaters across the nation on June 8 for the film’s 34th anniversary, with an encore date set for June 12.

Beginning June 8, BBQ Films will also be hosting a three-night extravaganza in Brooklyn, where they’ll be turning a giant warehouse into the “Ghostbusters” headquarters. Fans will be able to wear proton packs, slurp on an ecto-beverage, watch the original film and maybe fight off a ghost or two. First released in 1984, the comedy starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.

Tickets are available at Fathom Events and BBQ Films.

Melissa McCarthy: 'Ghostbusters' Trailer "Very Confusing"
After the trailer for the reboot was voted as one of the most disliked YouTube videos ever, McCarthy confessed that it didn't really convey the story properly.
Abid Rahman wrote:In the wake of the Ghostbusters trailer being voted as one of the most disliked in YouTube history, one of the stars of the Sony reboot acknowledged the early promo clips were "very confusing."

As a guest on The Johnjay & Rich Show, Melissa McCarthy addressed the issues surrounding the trailer. "It's a reboot, not a remake. I know it's weird that they say [in the trailer] "30 years ago," but in this movie it's like the first one didn't happen," said the Spy star on what the new all-female interpretation of Ghostbusters really was.

She then outlined how the story was broadly the same in the reboot as the original. "It's a great story but told totally differently. It's the same thing of four unlikely heroes, it's in New York city, ghosts are taking over. It's the same classic story, but it's not a '30 years later,' " she said.

Asked if she thought it was confusing, McCarthy agreed and revealed that she had raised some questions about it. "Believe me, the question was asked. I think it's very confusing."

She added humorously: "But then everyone said, 'We don't care what you think.' "

no, they're going to blame it on sexism. "sexist geeks refuse to see shitty remake because they're sexist" or something like that, sounds like an Onion headline but it'll probably be front-page news on Variety.

i was reading an article the other day about the hunstman: winter's war, and how it tanked at the B.O., and what that meant for female-driven films, because that centered around three female lead characters (even though it's named after the sole lead male character), and i wanted to scream, "it says the film sucked and nobody wanted to see it! it was a sequel to a film that sucked, and everything about it looked as bad or worse than the film it was sequelling, and people stayed away because they don't want to waste money sitting in a theater watching two hours of shit splatter against the screen! it had nothing to do with female leads. that didn't hurt the hunger games! it didn't hurt the force awakens!"
coincidentally, the one lead male character in that film was also played by chris hemsworth. so when GB tanks too, maybe HE's the real reason. chris hemsworth (in a non-superhero role) = box office poison. probably not true, but the underlying logic is the same.

Naw, that sounds pretty accurate. No one wants to see Robert Downey Jr. outside of a Marvel movie these days either. Are people flocking to see Chris Evans movies?

It's the Bond Effect. We'll forget Daniel Craig exists in a few years.

They tried to use Craig in The Golden Compass and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. That's two trilogies failed film trilogies he's been a part of.

yeah, but he was also in The Force Awakens, and that film did pretty well. i guess it's only trilogies where he shows his face that do poorly.

YouTube Midnight's Edge:
SPOILERS
Ghostbusters Reboot: Production Trouble Rumors (Sony-Gate Part 1)
The trailer for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot has been widely criticized since its release on 03 March. However, there are indications there may be bigger issues at play behind the scenes. In this video we will cover the production of the film, go through the rumors, and provide our observations on them.


Ghostbusters reboot: Story Leak and Damage Limitation (Sony-Gate Part 2)
This video covers the rumored plot, as revealed by a postproduction worker on Reddit. Also, how Sony coerced the original cast to cameo, how heads have already rolled over the trailer reception, twitter meltdowns, and how Sony wants your sexism for damage limitation.


Ghostbusters reboot: How Sony hijacked Ghostbusters 3
This video details how the Ghostbusters reboot actually started out as the Ghostbusters 3 everyone would have preferred, but how Sony executives effectively froze out director Ivan Reitman, and rebooted the property with director Paul Feig and his female centric Ghostbusters instead.

Holy shit, what a mindnumbingly terrible fucking article that is.

Feraci accusing people of being sexist (either consciously or unconsciously) because they think this film looks like a pile of shit, while he himself States in the very same article that he doesn't think it looks very promising either. So is he being sexist too by not being entirely sold on the project? Is he only a little sexist, or is he above that sort of thing?

And the whole trans/bathroom thing....what the fuck does that have to do with anything?

I feel dumber for reading this. I regret even commenting about it. I regret my life.

A) i hate it when i'm right. not really. i love it. sorry for underestimating them, though, and thinking they'd wait til AFTER the film flopped to blame it on sexism.

B) he has a point about that guy on youtube ranting about not wanting to see the film. remember when all those angry geeks made youtube videos ranting about how they were going to boycott The Force Awakens because casting a female lead character was a betrayal of their beloved franchise that sexually violated their nostalgic memories of the original trilogy? no? oh, that's right... because IT NEVER HAPPENED. i'm sure there was probably some small number of people somewhere who actually got upset by that, but not nearly enough to impact the film's success (okay, there were people who got upset over the "black stormtrooper," but again, not enough to actually hurt ticket sales). but now, somehow, because one shitty remake that happens to feature an all-female cast gets the same internet outrage as pretty much every other sequel/remake/reboot of an old beloved property, it's somehow due to rampant sexism. if he never noticed a bunch of geeks threatening to boycott those previous non-female rebootquels, it's only because he wasn't paying attention.

C) it's nice when you can just pull two films out of your ass to try to justify your point. Batman vs Superman is immune to the whole "reboot rage" precisely because those characters have been rebooted so many times, in so many different formats, including film, tv, comics, etc. it's not a valid comparison. might as well compare it to the james bond series, and how (until the craig films) every single film was basically a reboot. and total recall? the whole fucking planet boycotted that movie. the remake made less than half of what the original made, despite coming over 20 years later. people didn't rage over the total recall remake because they didn't care enough about it to feel anything at all. if you're looking to make a point about sexism hurting a film's success, it's probably best not to use such a horrible flop as a point of comparison.

I love that he asks why nobody was up in arms over the last MAD MAX film. Maybe because the same dude who made the first three was doing that one too? That we'd actually been waiting to see a new George Miller MAD MAX film for about ten years? That it looked fucking awesome?

and it had a female lead. i mean, it was called Mad Max, but i'm pretty sure Charlize had more screen-time than Tom Hardy.
and then there's Suicide Squad, it's not a remake/prequel but it's still in that same DC universe and there's no doubt Margo Robbie is the lead, but somehow there's a lack of sexist outrage aimed at that film. there's the typical fanboy bitching about whether harley quinn is being done right or not, but i can't recall anyone saying she should have been played by a man. or wonder woman, or captain marvel, or any number of geek properties with a female on top. somehow, only ghostbusters is on the receiving end of this sexist outrage. must be some very selective sexism out there.

meanwhile, there's real sexism out there that no one cares about. we're in the middle of the most sexist presidential campaign, probably since the women's suffrage movement, and it's only going to get more sexist now that it's down to trump v. hillary. but hey, let's worry about a crappy 80s movie remake instead and what that says about women's rights.

Well, one could argue that Mad Max had hot chicks in it (Furioso and the brides), whilst Ghostbusters does not. Thus sexism, or lack of it.
