New All-Male 2nd Ghostbusters Film Announced

Many “thoughtful and open minded” fellas took to social media to complain about the prospect of an all –female Ghostbusters reboot cast when director Paul Feig announced in January that the people busting ghosts would be Melissa McCarthy plus current and former SNL cast members Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

FemiNazis? Apparently Rush Limbaugh’s audience are now film critics.

Don’t want an all-female cast? Well now your wishes have been granted, boys – as today Sony Pictures heard you loud and clear! The movie studio announced that in addition to the all-lady driven movie, there would be a second new Ghostbusters film, this time with all dudes. Specifically this dude:

Ghosts won’t be the only thing getting busted. Niiiiice.

Magic Mike star Channing Tatum, has signed on to be a Ghostbuster and I am confident that that this will completely satisfy all the guys who didn’t want to see female Ghostbusters.  – I mean, who is more manly then Channing? He is totally going to kick some ghost butt.

Sounds fun, Tatum was funny in the 22 Jump Street films. The new Ghostbusters with Tatum will be directed by Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo and written by Drew Pearce who wrote Iron Man 3.  Cool, Maybe The Avengers Can help The Ghostbusters?

In what is totally not about exploiting an old and beloved franchise, Ivan Reitman along with original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd have signed with Sony to create Ghostcorps, a new venture devoted to creating “brand opportunities” (it’s OK to vomit a little in your mouth when you hear that phrase) for a bunch of guys shooting their proton packs together in more films, TV and merchandizing.

Sounds like they are open to a whole host of new projects; what type of Ghostbusters would you like to see hit the screen? Elderly Ghostbusters? Fat Ghostbusters?
