One of the most famous franchise films of the 80’s Ghost busters is all set to get reloaded as per sources Sony pictures is planning a major revamp to their tentPole Franchise it was revealed that an all-male Ghostbusters is on the way, possibly starring Channing Tatum. Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo are looking to direct and produce.
This follows the announcement of Paul Feig’s reboot (in theaters July 22, 2016) that will feature an all-female cast consisting of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
Apparently, the news of an all-male team is a bit misleading, which caused sources to followup on the story. That’s when they discovered some incredible new details that had me jumping across the room.
“First of all, this new Ghostbusters movie isn’t all-male. It isn’t ‘guy-centric.’ sources claim to have spoken to three different people who were baffled as to where that news came from. But it does have some guys at the center – the concept here is a movie that spins out of the chemistry between real-life friends Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt (pictured),” explained the source. This new Ghostbusters is also supposed to be complementary to the Paul Feig film. It’s Avengers-style, building out a massive new universe that will eventually collide.
“The hope is that after Feig’s Ghostbusters is out and after Tatum’s Ghostbusters is out the next film will see the two teams co-mingling, Avengers-style,” they add. “This is planned out, and has been getting planned out for some time – it’s not a sudden change of heart at Sony.”
Lastly, from what they’re told, this new Ghostbusters universe will also have a prequel movie, which will take place before either of these two announced films
So how big is this news? Sony Pictures is planning four new Ghostbusters films that will all intermingle in the same universe. the concept of tent pole is about to get a face lift.
We at AMDB wish everyone at Sony all the best for this epic en devour!!!
