27 January 2015 10:43 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Casting, release date and story details for Paul Feig's Ghostbusters reboot, which is due in July 2016.

Well, it's definitely happening. Paul Feig's new take on Ghostbusters will be arriving in cinemas on July 22nd 2016, with production starting this summer. The plan, as had been reported before, is to shoot the film once more in New York, the spiritual home (ahem) of the Ghostbusters movies.

Paul Feig announced the news via his Twitter account, and he's also confirmed the lead cast of his movie.

The new Ghostbusters? They're going to be Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon. You can see pictures of the new crew right here...

Furthermore, over at Film Divider, they have a few details of the characters in the new film. Don't read on if you want to stay spoiler-free.

Still here?

'Ghostbusters' Reboot Gets a Summer 2016 Release Date

27 January 2015 5:21 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After revealing the main cast members on his Twitter page earlier today, Ghostbusters director Paul Feig also used the social media platform to announce the July 22, 2016 release date. The reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon, will be going up against Warner Bros.' medieval adventure Knights of the Round Table: King Arthur, starring Charlie Hunnam, and Lionsgate's action reboot Power Rangers on that same date. Ghostbusters also falls between the animated sequel Ice Age 5 on July 15, 2016 and the Untitled Matt Damon Bourne Sequel on July 29, 2016.

Just hours after the cast members were confirmed, another report surfaced that Sony wants Bill Murray to play Martin Heiss, a professional ghost debunker who tries to prove that these new Ghostbusters are faking the videos that they're posting online. The character is described as similar to William Atherton's Walter Peck from the original Ghostbusters. Peter Dinklage, »

New Ghostbusters Character Details Surface, As Does A Bill Murray Character

27 January 2015 5:15 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, it’s either a very exciting or very frightening time to be a Ghostbusters fan. On the one hand, we now have a pretty solid cast list for the all-female Ghostbusters reboot. On the other hand…well, the phrase “a Ghostbusters reboot” pretty much says it all. But as this film is definitely happening now, it’s time to start digging into this cast list and finding out who (or what) everyone is playing.

There are four main parts on offer here, each of them differing in a big way from the original two films. Here’s the breakdown (via The Playlist):

Erin Gabler is an academic on the tenure track at Columbia. Her former colleague and co-author is… Abby Bergman, who’s more on the pop parapsychology side of things, and pursues ghosts for a living. Jillian is Abby’s ghost hunting partner. Patty is an Mta »

Here Are the New All-Female 'Ghostbusters'!

27 January 2015 3:40 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Earlier today, it was confirmed that director Paul Feig has cast his Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy in the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters reboot, along with Saturday Night Live breakout stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. There have also been rumors of a primary male role that has yet to be cast, with Hitfix reporting that the filmmakers are eyeing Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage to play the villain, described as a mechanical genius, and original Ghostbusters star Bill Murray to play another pivotal character named Martin Heiss.

Not much is said about the villain, but Bill Murray's Martin Heiss is said to be similar to William Atherton's Walter Peck from the original, a "professional ghost debunker." After he sees some of the videos these new Ghostbusters post online, he becomes determined to prove that they're fake, and "ends up at odds with the team through the whole film. »

Now that they've found the new 'Ghostbusters,' what should audiences expect?

27 January 2015 1:40 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

When you're at Sundance, it can sometimes feel like the entire rest of the world has disappeared. It was surreal watching the news about the big east coast snowstorms unfolding on random TVs while walking around Park City, and it sort of felt like there was a real-time disaster movie happening that we were just hearing about in passing. It's also unusual for news about a future film to pierce the Sundance bubble, but when the news is that they've cast the new Ghostbusters for director Paul Feig, that's worth taking a break so I can offer up some thoughts and a little bit of context for what viewers can expect from the film. According to the report filed today by Borys Kit, the central quartet will be played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. Obviously Feig is comfortable with Wiig and McCarthy, so I'm not »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

Birdman and Eddie Redmayne take home SAG Awards

26 January 2015 4:41 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Amongst this years Screen Actors Guild Award winners are Eddie Redmayne, who won Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role for his portrayal of Steven Hawking in The Theory of Everything, Birdman, which took home Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, and Orange Is the New Black, whose star Uzo Uduba claimed the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Comedy Series category.

Redmayne, dedicated his award to sufferers of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Als), the illness which Hawking himself suffers from. He also went on to congratulate fellow actors such as Bradley Cooper, David Oyelowo and Timothy Spall.

Unsurprisingly it was Julianne Moore who took the award for best female leading role for her performance as an aging academic experiencing the early stages of Alzheimer disease in Still Alice.

It has been a big weekend for Birdman, which not only won best ensemble »

“That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff”: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People

25 January 2015 9:56 PM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Quick…name a favorable film where the landscape is run by (or at least partially include) the demographic of little people as part of the instrumental storyline? C’mon…it should not be that difficult, okay? If you want to mention say Darby O’Gill and the Little People then that would fine. How about Bad Santa or Poltergeist for that matter?

In That’s Good Enough, Short Stuff: Top Ten Films Featuring Little People we will take a look at some of the mini megastars that inhabited these movies and contributed their fair share of entertainment value to the on-screen proceedings. The debate as to whether some of these selected films featuring these pint-sized performers are considered positive, exploitative or dismissive are not up for discussion (although one of these considerations could apply in the minds of a few folks). Instead, we want to celebrate the inclusion of »

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
