Ghostbusters Producer says All-Male Reboot is “Just Noise”
A producer on the most recent reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise has confirmed that there is only one movie in the works, and all other rumours are “just noise.”
Over the last few weeks the internet has been awash with conversation surrounding an all male reboot of Ghostbusters starring Chris Pine and Channing Tatum, that would come in the wake of the female version.
However, a producer on Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters, has dashed any hopes/fears/qualms.
Ivan Reitman, director of the original Ghostbusters said: “There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify.
“There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig-directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are currently in the process of filming the reboot, due out in July next year. However, speculation started circling about the all-male version following screenwriter Drew Pearce announcing that he had recently finished writing a script for a male-led film with the Russo brothers.
This was heightened even further by Tatum speaking publicly about the potential movie, but cast doubt on the film’s chances of a release in June.
Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters will be released in cinema’s on July 22nd, 2016.
