I am not hear to talk about that remake. I think at the end of the day, if you enjoyed it, then great. If you didn’t well you’ll always have the original. Lets just say the new version divided us at HCF and led to many arguments, but hey, that’s the fun of loving movies right?
The film sort of flopped, but that hasn’t stopped SONY and notably Ivan Reitman from stopping in their tracks in carrying on with the franchise, with ideas beginning to float around multiple platforms.
With “Ghostbusters Hiring” now hitting Playstation VR, the next plan is for a new movie to hit the cinema, but in animated form. Now we don’t know if this will have the old cast, new cast or both, but judging by the success of previous animated series on the TV, this sounds a promising idea.
It was talking about the animated film that Reitman admitted there are still ideas about a new live action film. This is what he said:
“We jumped into an animated film [after the last movie] and we are developing live-action films. I want to bring all these stories together as a universe that makes sense within itself. Part of my job right now is to do that.”
Is there a market still for Ghostbusters? We have to wait and see as make no mistake, the recent remake failed to make its projected money but it wasn’t a huge flop like many think. Made for $144m and made back $229m, SONY actually gainedsome money back, so you can understand why they don’t want to close this franchise entirely.
We have to wait and see what the future actually holds and when we do wanna call, who will actually pick up!
