    The article may not say much, but the people commenting on the article aren't pleased at this new development, with many of them calling the male fans names, saying the new movie's not going to be as good as the 2016 one ,etc.

    Reading rumors on Ghostbuster news sites that it will be two male and two female characters and they will be teenagers...

    Teenagers? Gods damnit..

    I do wonder what concessions they had to make to finally get Murray on board? Without Harold Ramis, I wonder if Murray is finally getting his way on the script?

    Well, you don't know that his participation is substantially greater than in the Feig movie.

    Very true. Just thinking in a vacuum...

    It's pretty likely that the script does an early hand-off from Murray, Hudson and possibly Weaver. Now, I'm sure that Ackroyd/Ray will manage to be underfoot for much of the proceedings. :lol:

    That's because pining for "something new" doesn't really extend to gender-flips, identity-politics, lens-flare, and dutch angles.

    Well, I think this might have had more traction had they done this before the 2016 movie. That said, I like the idea. Son of the original director who spent time on the original sets? He could provide a unique viewpoint and addition to the franchise. It would also provide an opportunity to perhaps open it up to the concept of franchises open elsewhere other than Manhattan. I've said it before, but I feel that New Orleans would be a really cool city to feature a GB team, given its history with the supernatural. But revealing a sequel now? Man, it's going to have to climb a mountain!

    Giacchino would be cool. I think Danny Elfman would also be really fitting!

    I'd be happy Giacchino.
    I wonder how they will handle the passage of time, will they have been active this whole time, or will they not have had to do any ghostbusting after II?
    If they did have adventures after II, I wonder if they'll acknowledge the game? It had the voices and likenesses of pretty much everyone except Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis, an I believe Dan Ackroyd and maybe Harold Ramis also had some involvement with the script, so they are all very much aware of it. Since I had assumed we were never going to get a third movie, I'd pretty much just considered it the third movie up until yesterday. I would love to see them acknowledge stuff from the comics too, but I figures there's pretty much zero chance of that happening.

    So everything in a remake/reboot has to be like the original just to suit you? Then what would the point of a remake/reboot be?:rolleyes::vulcan:

    As I said earlier, people like yourself complaining about 'a lack of originality' in current entertainment are never the ones to break away from the mainstream and check out underground or alternative movies and foreign ones, you love to see mainstream ones, mostly due to them having sci-fi/fantasy as a subject. So the bitching and whining go on, and on, and on...:vulcan:

    Rubbish. This isn't like comparing Dirty Harry with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Ghostbusters '16 borrows the title, basic plot points, iconography, theme song, genre, location, and multiple actors from the original, not to mention the sequel bait promise of Zuul. Attempting to censor any comparisons is farcical on its face.

    Obsessing over whiny mass-market movie comments was bad enough in 2016. But now that we're deep, so very deep, into the Trump age, let's maybe not keep making ourselves miserable doing the same thing, with the trivial difference of said comments being on the other side? :rolleyes:

    As I understand it, the agreement was that Murray, Ackroyd, and Ramis all had to agree on the story and they never could. It's possible that the main disagreements on story were between Murray and Ramis and, with Ramis now gone, so has the dispute.

    I’m not getting into this garbage fire of a debate again. My point was that Ghostbusters 84 is one of the most iconic comedies of the 80s if not the 20th century and Ghostbusters 16 is a decent comedy with a few great moments. I have no desire to debate this because it’s a waste of time.

    I hope they don't do the "inactive since GB II" plot so it won't be another retread of them going back into business AGAIN and having their first ghost busting AGAIN. I think a way to go would be the Jurassic World route, where maybe the public is so used to hauntings and spirits, that they're just commonplace and more of an annoyance like ants on a kitchen sink. The ghostbusters are a nationwide franchise with companies in most major cities (maybe even in small towns). Maybe for the opening act, we see some routine ghostbusting, then a new threat emerges that forces some Ghostbuster franchise to team with one from another city.

    Okay, but that's a very different point from "you can't compare them," with the implication that any comparisons are inherently absurd.

    Again: that's totally fine, but it doesn't mean the rest of us can't compare the two versions. ;)

    Whatever floats you boat. I have better things to do with my time than complain about a three year old movie I didn’t like.

    If this is all about "making up" for the 2016 movie, I AM NOT INTERESTED.
