If they want to do a Ghostbuters non-reboot, then why not center a story around a franchise. Maybe out in California. New characters, update the tech and effects, have some of the originals show up as a cameo...  no one has thought of this?

The video game that came out a few years ago was the third movie.  That is all.

"Sad", Subby? Because a character can't possibly be rebooted as female without being as good or better than the original?

couold be infinitely worse.
Sarah jessica parker, cynthia nixon, kristin davis and kim cattral in GB3: Ghosts In the City

\kim spends half the movie making passes at Oscar not that Venkman dies in an accident, and Dana married Louis, while VelmaJanine realises she is gay and has an affair with a ghost.

I'm gonna go vomit.

Still sounds better than whatever the hell Akroyd was planning for a third one. Still, awful idea.

Sad tag? Really? Subby are you one of those female hating gays?

I'll reserve judgment until it comes out. A female centric cast might not be a bad idea. If they can find the right females to play the parts.
 
2014-08-03 06:02:03 AM  
Well, it could work, if you could find funny women.

I hope it isn't a reboot, if you're going to do something ghostbusters, then do something new...this screams of cash grab. Reboot an excellent comedy sci-fi and then replace the original characters with women to grab media attention and hope to cash in...

I don't think you understand the meaning of "reboot". It's not the same as "remake". They don't have to tell the same story.

Poehler, Fey, Jane Lynch, and Aisha Tyler, in a 'franchise' story with cameos by Ackroyd, Murray and Hudson, and William Atherton as the head of the EPA.  Oh, and a Skyfall-style return of the Ecto-1.

That would work.

None. Ever.

'Reboot' is pretty much the same as a remake as there were plenty of remakes that didn't follow the same story. Reboot is just using a new word for it cause people got annoyed with remakes.

And still, if you are not going to tell the same story again (why the hell would you even) then why not just come up with something new instead.

Not really.  A reboot can only apply to franchises- if there's one old movie and it's being remade, it's being remade.  If the old movie has sequels, but instead of making another sequel they remake the series from the beginning, it's a reboot.

Katee Sackhoff needs to keep her hair long. With it short like that she looks too much like Macauley Culkin.

Melissa McCarthy would be a much better female version of Louis Tully than she would be as a Ghostbuster.

It's a freaking cartoon movie. What difference does it make who the leads are? I bet they end up with a gay in there too.

I don't think that will work.  There's a lot of math and science involved in ghostbusting.
 
2014-08-03 11:20:47 AM  
I am OK with the main characters being female, but any Ghostbusters film must include Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd and Ernie Hudson as significant supporting characters. Otherwise, it's not Ghostbusters.

There's really no reason to reboot Ghostbusters. The business itself could be a franchise set in the world of the original Ghostbusters in another city following the stories of other Ghostbusters. Original actors could make a franchise.

99% of the time a franchise is rebooted they screw it up completely.

Wow.... that was almost a sentence. "Original actors could make a cameo at the new franchise."

I would love to see the Janine role filled by Bill Murray, both because I enjoy pretty much anything Bill Murray does these days AND because it would be the greatest celebrity troll since Andy Kaufman.
