All this back and forth about a possible "Ghostbusters" franchise beyond the upcoming reboot has gotten really confusing. It's dogs and cats living together -- mass hysteria! We know the Paul Feig movie with Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth is now filming for a release next year, and there were rumors that a second movie was coming with a male cast (possibly including Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt). But that second movie may not really be happening. Unless it is happening? See if you can follow along...
We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment. This is a branded entertainment, a scary supernatural premise mixed with comedy. Paul Feig's film will be the first version of that, »

The producer of the much-hyped female-fronted reboot of the classic 1980s comedy Ghostbusters has denied reports that a rival male team is also heading for cinemas.
Ivan Reitman, who directed 1984’s original Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, said in a statement that the only new film on its way to multiplexes would be the confirmed version overseen by Bridesmaids’ film-maker Paul Feig, starring Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig alongside Saturday Night Live alumni Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones. Feig’s film is due in July 2016 and has become a major talking point following the director’s decision to gender-swap the original’s central spirit-bashing quartet.

It looks like Ghostbusters isn't going to cross its streams any time soon, with the confirmation that only one film is in the works.
The internet has been abuzz in recent weeks with rumours of a male-focused reboot starring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum, but a producer on Paul Feig's upcoming movie has dashed our hopes/quashed our fears.
Screenwriter Drew Pearce got fans excited »
Yesterday, we reported on a second possible new Ghostbusters film, that's been chatted about for a little while now. This is the one that Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Joe and Anthony Russo were involved with, and that screenwriter Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) had been working on. Furthermore, Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt had been linked with starring in the film.
In yesterday's update, Pearce revealed that he had come up with an idea for a Ghostbusters film, that would have a mixed gender team, and had a "gigantic bold idea" at the heart of it. Given his commitments to co-writing and co-directing upcoming Lego project The Billion Brick Race, Pearce also said that "I've only written a bible" for the new movie, and that he finished his work on the project »
Update: Original Ghostbusters director and continuing producer Ivan Reitman has now added his voice to that of Drew Pearce... in a slightly more forthright manner. "There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise," he tells Uproxx. "As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”If you've been following the saga of the Ghostbusters rebootquel, you'll know that as well as the Paul Feig / Melissa McCarthy / Kristen Wiig incarnation, there's also been talk of another film, in a bigger-picture, Marvel-type connected universe stylee.

If you're getting confused about what's going on with the future of the Ghostbusters franchise, you're not in the minority. Apparently even the people behind the scenes aren't necessarily certain about what's happening with their property, as writer Drew Pearce says one thing, producer Ivan Reitman says another and then Dan Aykroyd continues his babble over at the far right corner. For some background, for years -- decades even -- Akyroyd's tried getting Ghostbusters 3 off to the races. There were a number of complications, but essentially it came down to Bill Murray not playing ball. Despite multiple rewrites and reformatting from Akyroyd and others, it never quite came together. Akyroyd even tried to make the movie around Murray's disapproval, having him either cameo briefly as a ghost or simply not show up at all. Those settlements didn't change anything either, and when Harold Ramis passed away last year, Akyroyd's »

Yesterday we brought you news about a second upcoming Ghostbusters movie, with screenwriter Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) revealing that he’d finished the script for a instalment from directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) and producer Ivan Reitman, who of course helmed the original two films.
Well, Reitman has now issued a statement, shooting down the report: “There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise.”

While she may be better known for her superb funny-girl acting chops—cough, cough Bridesmaids or Gilmore Girls—Melissa McCarthy is also a pretty great fashion designer. How do we know this? Well, the actress shared the first images from her debut collection, Melissa McCarthy Seven7, with Vogue yesterday—and color us impressed! The line meets the everyday gal's needs, with a versatile range of pieces and sizes (ranging from 4 to 28) that all ring in at or under $150 (sadly, no bridesmaids dresses are in the collection…yet). "Some days I want to be prim and proper, and others I want to be in a band. I lost the ability to do that with clothes," McCarthy told »
In the world of comedy certain talents stand out as heavyweights, both literally and figuratively. Large of both frame and talent very often these talented performers can seem more like a force of nature running amok in the mundane world, creating comedic chaos for our amusement.
The first that comes to my mind would have to be Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, his name forever tarnished with a scandalous incident that was proved in court never to have happened, Fatty Arbuckle deserves better. He was genuinely talented, a series of dvd releases proves it. He taught Buster Keaton everything he knew. He was also incredibly funny.

"Every time a friend succeeds," wrote Gore Vidal, "I die a little." Hopefully this isn't how Melissa McCarthy's former Groundlings pals feel in the face of her recent globe-conquering stardom, or they'd be dead a hundred times over. However they feel, they'll get the chance to express the shock and awe of the "Spy" star's blockbuster success in "Friends With Melissa," a TV Land pilot in which three of McCarthy's old improv partners watch one of their own make it big while they toil away penning kids' shows. McCarthy and her husband Ben Falcone have landed a pilot deal with TV Land for such a show about her friends, which they're also slated to executive produce. The show will be written and Ep'd by Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras.
