New Ghostbusters franchise will be ‘endless’


Ghostbusters hasn’t even hit theaters in wide release yet, but the film’s producer is already starting the conversation about future movies in the franchise.

During the film’s premiere at the TLC Chinese Theater in Los Angeles over the weekend, producer Amy Pascal was the epitome of confidence when she spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about the movie and what she believes will follow it.

She said, “I have waited for this moment for a year! It’s going to be endless. People are going to love this movie so much that they’re going to demand more and more.”

Yes, Ghostbusters haters. You can count on seeing more of Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon cleansing the world of pesky ghosts if Amy’s predictions are accurate.

The film flips the original classic on its head with a female-fueled cast, and this is a move that has outraged many (mostly male) fans of the 1984 hit.

But despite this, and the backlash the trailer received, the early reviews for the sci-fi comedy are predominantly positive. Its score on Rotten Tomatoes is currently 78 percent, while the more calibrated Metacritic has it at 63 percent.

Ghostbusters is directed by Paul Feig, who worked with Melissa and Kristen on Bridesmaids, and launches onto screens Friday, July 15th.

    Enough with the remakes and sequels and sequels to remakes. When exactly did Hollywood become allergic to originality?

    All the way! It’s important people support this film (even if it doesn’t seem all that appealing) just because it’s female-fronted. The business needs more women-helmed movies!

    Its not sexist to want something original instead of just redoing the original with women. they say mostly men have been so negative about it because FYI, it was a whole lot of men who watched and grew up with the original..and watched the subsequent cartoons and bought the male dominated toys that followed as well. Its not that the men are being sexist, itès that the men who grew up with all I mentioned, dont want people to forget the original was and always will be the best.
    Mind you, I will also watch this new version and point out obvious comparisons and save my opinion about the new movie until I actually see it. If they are gearing it towards the next generation, its great, but they should have made an original ghost comedy.
