That is a prime example of giving away entirely too much in the trailer. It should've stopped about 30-40 seconds in.

A brand-new Ghostbusters film, set in the same world as the 1984 original, is officially in the works.


It will be directed by Jason Reitman, son of the original director, Ivan Reitman.

Summer 2020

Though there’s no word on if any O.G. Ghostbusters stars will return, Reitman—who co-wrote the screenplay with Gil Kenan—further teased “wonderful surprises and new characters,” though he made it clear that we won’t be seeing any of the “brilliant actresses” who starred in Paul Feig’s 2016 reboot: “This new movie will follow the trajectory of the original film.”

Speaking of reboots, I just watched Raiders of the Lost Ark for the first time in a maybe 10 years. I found myself imagining Chris Pratt as Indie and realized that he would be able to pull it off. I thereby recant my earlier opposition from however many pages back.

I kinda get this reaction given how tiresome and repugnant the reactions to the reboot were before anyone had any inkling if it was going to be good or not, just because it was a female cast. But it's not like Terminator or something where they just keep cranking out bad movie after bad movie trying to get one to stick again.

I didn't hate the reboot by any means, it was fine for what it was, but they can do things with that universe without trying to shoehorn in the OG Ghostbusters formula/general plot. I know the concept of people who "bust ghosts" is a lot of fun, and if you try and do anything remotely similar it's branded a knock off or gets compared unfavorably to the original, so why not just use the universe but not make it about the actual Ghostbusters, whoever it may be wearing the suit. Why not make it about a group of random people trying to fend off ghosts during one of the periods of time the containment grid shut down and ghosts were sowing chaos all over the city. That could be a fun story with a lot of opportunity for humor, and you don't need to call it "Ghostbusters". Maybe that's what they're planning, but you can do a lot with that universe without having it actually be about the actual Ghostbusters.

Hell, here's a simple concept, they licensed out their technology to other cities with ghost problems. It's like MIB: International. But they keep trying to make it this "These NEW characters who developed this NEW technology in this NEW story about this OLD franchise..." yada yada yada. Stop trying to reinvent the wheel. Take what you already have and evolve and adapt it instead of starting from scratch with a whole new cast if you're going to keep using it over and over again.

And seeing this after I made that post looks like they're doing exactly what I thought they should do, so consider my interest piqued.

Yeah I think the MIB: International route is exactly the right way to go here. New story, new characters, same world. No need to drag 68 year old Peter Venkman back into the picture.

Counter argument.

At around 1:16 if it doesn't actually skip to it.

Yeah, he got fired towards the end of making it but not because he's a rapist but because he would disappear from the set for long stretches, was generally an horsefeathers and Rami Malek hated him. Whatever guild or whatever decides who gets credits for things decided he gets full director credit even though he didn't finish it.
