So they finally decided to get working on the 3rd Ghostbusters film. That’s great! I really hope they can recapture what made the first film such a milestone.
Not only have they decided to bring the beloved franchise back, it’s returning by way of an all-female team. Ex-Ghostbuster Bill Murray has always been disinterested about working on a 3rd film. But he thinks Melissa McCarthy would make an excellent pick for the new team.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see McCarthy starring in the reboot, given that Paul Feig was selected as director. Feig and McCarthy have successfully teamed in current and previous projects.
It will be interesting to see where this project goes and how this will be related to the other films. It’s been 25 years since Ghostbusters II was released, and 30 years since the original Ghostbusters. If this 3rd film is anything less than astronomically awesome…it still won’t tarnish the success of original film and the cartoon. But even if they do make a good film, I’d be surprised if they can revive those elements which made the first film so cool.
