Hold onto your proton-packs or pitchforks, as some new information concerning Sony’s Ghostbusters franchise is coming from other sources. While Deadline revealed that next film directed by The Russo Brothers with a script from Drew Pearce and could see Channing Tatum as one of the lead actors.
New reports suggest this won’t be dudes-only. Fans overreacting over this news is something people need to stop doing because we’re getting a clearer picture of what this film could actually look like.
Badass Digest is now reporting that this new Ghostbusters film won’t be entirely guy-centric as mentioned by Deadline. Along with revealing that previously mentioned actor Chris Pratt is indeed being considered for a role opposite his real-life pal Channing Tatum , the studio hoping to benefit from that relationship on screen.
this new Ghostbusters movie isn’t all-male. It isn’t ‘guy-centric.’ I spoke to three different people who were baffled as to where that came from. But it does have some guys at the center - the concept here is a movie that spins out of the chemistry between real-life friends Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt. This isn’t a case of ‘everybody wants Chris Pratt in their movie,’ this is a case of these two guys being pals and wanting to make this movie together.
At the centre it could be a buddy film, but this doesn’t mean the other leads won’t be female. Where that came from nobody seems to know because it conflicts what we and other sites have been hearing.
As we suspected and what has been repeatedly reported the film will indeed be incorporated and complimentary to the Paul Feig’s film.
Devin also mentions there will be four films the all-female film, the Tatum/Pratt film, a prequel, and a crossover. What those films will look like in the end are another matter.
