Ghostbusters Reboot Adds Michael K. Williams and Andy Garcia

19 minutes ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Filmmaker Paul Feig’s reboot Ghostbusters has been filming in Boston for a couple of weeks now, but the comedy is now adding a few more cast members. The Wrap reports that Michael K. Williams, Andy Garcia, previously rumored SNL alum Cecily Strong, and Veep standout Matt Walsh have joined the ensemble, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones as aforementioned busters of ghosts. The most recent new cast member to be added outside the central quartet was Chris Hemsworth in a stroke of brilliant casting as the Ghostbusters’ secretary, filling the seat of Annie Potts from the original film. This new casting isn’t as exciting as the “Hemsworth as Secretary” news (really, what is?), but The Wrap does add that Garcia is playing a powerful politician, so perhaps he’s the movie’s primary human antagonist. The Wire alum Williams is playing a character named Hawkins, »

The new Ghostbusters officially gear up in 2 new pics

30 June 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

You’re in luck if you have some ghosts that need busting, because director Paul Feig has officially confirmed that the new Ghostbusters is well on its way to becoming a reality.

Featuring an all-female Ghostbuster team that reads like a who’s who of current comedy, the cast includes Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Chris Hemsworth has also been confirmed as the secretary, as played by a memorable Annie Potts in the original.

Plot details are being kept heavily under wraps, but if these new tweets are anything to go by, the suits and Proton Packs are back and better than ever. Protective goggles and Ghostbusting badges are both accounted for, meaning we should expect some serious paranormal activity.

Ghostbusters hits Cineplex theatres July 22, 2016, but get a sneak peek below!

Female 'Ghostbusters' Proton Pack Unveiled

30 June 2015 7:55 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Yesterday, director Paul Feig decided to reveal on Twitter a first look at the new Ghostbusters uniforms to be worn by his all-female cast, which includes Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. Many thought the next big teased would be the ladies suited up and ready to fight the supernatural. Nope. Instead, today we get our first look at the mostly new Proton Packs these lady Ghostbusters will be slinging in what is described as a complete reimagining of the franchise.

The Proton Pack design stays pretty close to what we know and love from the original 1984 Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel Ghostbusters 2. It is a little slicker, and a bit more compact, but not a huge leap in style or design. While the costumes shown off yesterday and this new proton pack stay locked into the true Ghostbusters aesthetic, the film will be somewhat of a »

Today, it.s proton packs, with the hashtag #WhatYouGonnaShoot? #whatyougonnashoot pic.twitter.com/sGsYSgS1Io. Paul Feig (@paulfeig) June 30, 2015 Let.s just say, if you are a massive Ghostbusters fan, and you are dying for the new entry in the spooktacular cinematic series, you should probably be following Paul Feig on Twitter, because he.s hard at work on the movie, and is happy to share details like this. While we haven.t yet seen official photos of the ladies in action . or even in character . Feig appears to be building toward something potentially bigger. Maybe we.ll see the firehouse headquarters, if he in fact decides to bring that back to the franchise. Perhaps he could show us »

Ghostbusters Costumes And Proton Packs Revealed

30 June 2015 7:46 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Paul Feig is hard at work shooting the Ghostbusters reboot for Sony, and though a few set photos have leaked out showcasing stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy, today brings a more official reveal. The director took to Twitter recently to give us our first look at the outfits and proton packs his new Ghostbusters team will be sporting.

The images were accompanied by the tongue-in-cheek hashtags #whatyougonnawear and #whatyougonnashoot. The main vibe I’m getting from both is nostalgia – the costumes are particularly true to the look of the originals. Given that the only other alternative I was worried about involved tightening the jumpsuits for a “sexy Ghostbuster” look, it’s a bit of a relief to see that these Ghostbusters will be clad near identically to the first lineup.

The throwback vibes carry over to the new proton pack, which appears just as worn »

This time, Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones will be gearing up to fight the supernatural.

Back To The Future Remake Will Happen Over Robert Zemeckis’ Dead Body

30 June 2015 7:36 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Familiar IP is everything these days, it seems. Studios will (somewhat begrudgingly) continue to churn out original properties, but their bread and butter is sequels, reboots, and remakes—and you can’t blame them. The top three films of the year so far at the box office are all sequels, with Jurassic World positively rolling in the dough as it breaks record after record. Movie tickets are expensive, and audiences are more likely to spend their money on something they’re already pretty sure they’ll like rather than take a chance on something unfamiliar. Every now and then they'll take a chance, as original films like Spy and Inside Out have proven to be big hits, but even so those movies are tinged with familiarity—the Melissa McCarthy/Paul Feig duo for Spy, and the Pixar brand for Inside Out. And with Jurassic World—a sequel in a franchise »

“Wiig and McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Wiig lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Wiig reunites with McCarthy and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan »
