2016’s planned Ghostbusters movie is bit of a hybrid, as it’s both reboot and remake but not quite either. It’s a new plot and the team looking for spooks are now ladies, but it’s aparently a different timeline so the events of the first film never took place. That may come as a bit of a surprise to some, as it’s well known the likes of Sigourney Weaver, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Annie Pitts and even Bill Murray will be in the movie, but all apparently playing different characters.
It would suggest though that this is actually a reboot, which will explain why these people are different to the ones we knew from the original movies, and also why no one is aware ghosts exist (which is apparently why director Paul Feig didn’t want to do a simple continuation of the earlier films).
Chris Hemsworth is also onboard as the girls’ secretary, with Andy Garcia as the mayor of New York City. Expect to see more very soon, including a first trailer, which will hope to get us excited for the July 2016 release.
