While we already have an awesome new all-female Ghostbusters remake coming up, the guys will not be outdone! We can’t just have women folk taking over a movie about MEN, can we? Channing Tatum is here to save the day – he’s developing a new Ghostbusters himself with the Russo brothers to be put out by Sony Pictures.
From The Wrap:
“Ghostbusters” director Ivan Reitman is teaming with Dan Aykroyd to form Ghost Corps, a new production company based on the Sony lot that is teaming with Channing Tatum, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” directors Joe and Anthony Russo and “Iron Man 3” writer Drew Pearce to develop a supernatural comedy set in the “Ghostbusters” universe, TheWrap has learned.
The film will serve as a counterpart to Paul Feig’s female-powered “Ghostbusters” movie starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
The testosterone-heavy project will be developed as a potential starring vehicle for Tatum, who will produce with Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan, the Russo brothers and Ghost Corps.
Is this going to be better than the lady version? Only time will tell. Either way, it seems like we’re going to be bombarded with nostalgia in the next couple of years.
Oh, and Chris Pratt is supposed to be in it, too, apparently.
