Sequels and reboots are popular commodities in the movie industry. The reasons vary from studio to studio, but in the end backing a proven franchise is what it is all about. After all, everyone loves a winner. Of course, the box office success of the projects skews all over the map. That being said, rebooting a movie series that received a fair amount of acclaim is probably a pretty safe bet.
According to Screen Rant, the rebooted version of “Ghostbusters” is set to begin filming. With a cast that includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. The female take on the film should provide a new view on the film, and the presence of Chris Hemsworth (Thor) as the receptionist for the team has a lot of entertaining potential as well. In the end, the new “Ghostbusters” has a lot of talent behind the camera and in front of it, which should spell success.
With a summer 2016 release date really not that far away, the film is going to be ushered through the production process fairly quickly according to what Jim Dondero has been reading. The release is anticipated by legions of fans that remember the original and the careers it helped launch to new heights. This will likely be one of the more anticipated films of the year, and everyone should get ready for a marketing campaign that will likely begin before the end of the year.
