'Ghostbusters' Producer Says No Spinoffs Are Happening

9 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Paul Feig's Ghostbusters is currently in production, and fans will get to see an all-new team of spirit chasers as they try to save New York City next summer. There have also been rumors that a Ghostbusters Spinoff is in development, with Sony Pictures eyeing Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt to star. Screenwriter Drew Pearce revealed yesterday that he has "completed work" on the script for this new Ghostbusters adventure. But it sounds like that project isn't happening anytime soon. Producer Ivan Reitman issued a statement earlier today, confirming that the female-centric reboot is the only new Ghostbusters movie in the works.

"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, »

"The Rest Is Just Noise": Ivan Reitman Cools Off Talk About Other 'Ghostbusters' Movies

9 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Yesterday, word emerged about that long rumored other "Ghostbusters" movie, one that would potentially star Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum, and had the Russo Brothers involvement: it was very much real. Screenwriter Drew Pearce revealed in an interview he had written the Bible or guidelines for the potential movie, and that Pratt and Tatum were in mind as he put together his project, which he clarified would include both men and women. Some sites took this bit of intel to mean that Pratt and Tatum were definitely going to star in a new "Ghostbusters" movie and that it was a done deal. However, nothing could be further from the truth. It's a step in the development process, and franchise guide Ivan Reitman pretty much confirms this, saying that, for the moment, all eyes should just stay on next summer's female-driven reboot.

Ivan Reitman Contradicts Himself About Ghostbusters Reboot

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

According to Ivan Reitman, you really shouldn’t listen to Ivan Reitman, because he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Confused? Join the club.

Months after he spoke at length about Sony’s plans for the Ghostbusters cinematic universe, Reitman has now sent an email around to us movie websites explaining that there is only one Ghostbusters in development, and it’s the one being directed by Paul Feig. What’s troubling about that is that Reitman and others, including scribe Drew Pearce, have directly contradicted this.

Reitman’s emailed statement reads:

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. »

Further "Ghostbusters" Films Planned Out

15 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While we know Paul Feig is currently shooting a female-centric reboot of the "Ghostbusters" franchise, one of the more interesting reports to emerge during that film's pre-production phase was that Sony Pictures is planning to use the movie as the launchpad for a larger 'Ghostbusters Cinematic Universe' along the lines of a Marvel or DC superhero one.

The second effort in this Gcu would be more male-centric "Ghostbusters" tale, one which Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were quickly rumored for. Both actors denied involvement, and the only thing that seemed concrete about it was that "Iron Man 3" and "Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation" co-writer Drew Pearce was involved in some capacity.

This week, Pearce clarified the matter regarding what's going on and says this second "Ghostbusters" reboot and overall larger plan is still happening. He tells MTV:

"I've finished my work on that in the last couple weeks. Obviously it’s top secret, »

Ghostbusters: "gigantic bold idea" for next movie

29 July 2015 10:10 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Writer Drew Pearce gives an update on the further planned Ghostbusters film, that may star Channing Tatum...

Currently, Paul Feig is shooting the new Ghostbusters movie, that's landing in cinemas next July. As you more than likely know, his film features Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

However, a few months back came word of another new Ghostbusters film, this one being penned by Drew Pearce. Furthermore, Joe and Anthony Russo - currently helming Captain America: Civil War - and Channing Tatum were all said to be involved. Rumours suggested that Chris Pratt would join the cast too.

Pearce, who co-wrote the incoming Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, has given an update on the project, revealing that he finished his work on the film "in the last couple of weeks".

Drew Pearce Says He’s Written A ‘Ghosbusters’ Bible With Chris Pratt & Channing Tatum In Mind, But Is Unsure If It’ll Happen

29 July 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Everyone needs to take a breath about the “Ghosbusters” project news so much so that writer Drew Pearce has taken to Twitter to clarify his own comments. Pearce began with confirming that he’s written something that is eyeing Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt to star, even though Chris Pratt has denied all this and Channing Tatum has recently suggested his version of “Ghostbusters” is pretty much dead. “That’s definitely the cast we’ve been thinking about as we approach the project,” Pearce told MTV (who wrote a super misleading headline). “Whether that happens or not is very much above my pay grade. It’s just my job to give them something exciting that maybe they’ll do.” Despite Pearce's caveats this has turned into "a 'Ghosbusters' movie with Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt will happen." Pearce has finished writing what he had to write and Tatum still feels »

Drew Pearce confirms finished Ghostbusters script with Tatum & Pratt in mind

29 July 2015 3:43 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

There were a lot of rumors flying around about a third Ghostbusters film before Paul Feig announced his all-female take. Following the initial negative feedback, it almost seemed like another male Ghostbusters team was announced in response. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were some of the early names tossed around, and they sure as hell didn't seem to know what was going on, but we finally have... Read More »

29 July 2015 1:50 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

While Gambit may be falling apart, looks like Channing Tatum and Chriss Pratt maybe heading into another Cinematic Universe.

Not long after the announcement of the reboot that shocked the world, an all female lead Ghostbusters directed by Bridesmaids director Paul Feig, it was announced that Sony Pictures was putting into production another spinoff. One that involved now mega stars Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum. While Feig was dissappointed and made it clear he had nothing to do with male lead Ghostbusters project, we were intrigued. 

While Pratt has denied his involvment with the project, MTV has spoken to screen writer Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3, Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation) who says that not only is the project deffinetly in the works, they have a script.

Pearce said "I've finished on that in the last couple of weeks. Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that i came up with, »

Ghostbusters Movie Probably Still Happening With Chris Pratt And Channing Tatum

29 July 2015 1:46 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

We know that Paul Feig.s female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot is happening, and is filming as we speak. There were rumblings that the studio also wanted a dude-centered tie in, ideally starring Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt, though those rumors took a hit recently.

MTV caught up with Drew Pearce at the New York premiere of Mission: Impossible.Rogue Nation, which he worked on. He is also the one tasked with writing the script for the other movie about jumpsuit-wearing paranormal investigators. When asked if this Ghostbusters is going to happen, he said: Oh yeah.

Colin Trevorrow talks Jurassic World sequel, suggests it will be heading off-island

29 July 2015 1:31 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week it was announced that Universal Pictures has set a release date of June 2018 for the follow-up to this year’s blockbuster Jurassic World. Although he’s stepped down as director, Colin Trevorrow remains involved as scriptwriter along his writing partner Derek Connelly, and the filmmaker has shared a few thoughts on where the sequel could go. By the sound of it, it seems like we could be heading out of the park…

“[It will not be] just a bunch of dinosaurs chasing people on an island. That’ll get old real fast. I feel like the idea that this isn’t always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. Dr Wu says in the film, when he’s warning Dr Mesrani, ‘We’re not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur.’ I think that’s »

All-Male Ghostbusters Movie Confirmed; Chris Pratt May Still Bust Out Proton Pack

29 July 2015 12:14 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Perhaps fittingly for a franchise about unusually active spirits, it’s been exceedingly difficult to keep track of what’s alive and what’s dead in Sony’s oft-shifting blueprint for the Ghostbusters universe. Paul Feig has been shooting an all-female reboot in Boston, but rumors have swirled throughout this year about other projects, including a Russo Brothers-directed movie starring Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum. Then, Pratt went on-record to shut down those reports, seemingly putting an end to talk of the project.

Today, though, it appears that Pratt was simply playing things close to the vest. Speaking with MTV, Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation co-writer Drew Pearce revealed that the all-male Ghostbusters reboot is very much alive, and that he’s been busily writing it, ready to pass it off to the Russo Brothers and producer Ivan Reitman. And what’s more, he’s been writing it with two very familiar leading men in mind. »

A male-led Ghostbusters movie is definitely happening, and it could team Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum

29 July 2015 11:59 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

A male-centric Ghostbusters movie is definitely still happening, and it could feature an epic team-up of Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum.

Tatum was tipped earlier this year to produce and potentially star in a movie about an all-male Ghostbusters team, which would complement Paul Feig's female group.

The Tatum version was expected to bring together Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation writer Drew Pearce and Captain America: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo.

Tatum later publicly cast doubt on whether a male Ghostbusters spinoff would actually be made, but writer Pearce sounded much more positive in a chat with MTV News.

"I've finished my work on that in the last couple weeks," he revealed. "Obviously it's top secret, but there's a gigantic bold idea that I came up with, and the Russo brothers - who did Captain America: The Winter Soldier and are doing Civil War at the moment - and Ivan Reitman, »

29 July 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Judging by the fall lineup it announced on Wednesday, TruTV believes the element of surprise is key to a good laugh.

The Turner Broadcasting System-owned cabler has announced an Oct. 8 return of Billy Eichner’s rapid-fire comedy routine “Funny or Die’s Billy on the Street.” The show famously forces unsuspecting pedestrians into the spotlight as they’re forced to answer inane questions or perform stunts with good-natured guest stars. This year’s crop of A-listers accompanying Eichner on his quests include Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Anna Kendrick and Julianne Moore.

Meanwhile, hidden camera show “Impractical Jokers” will be partying in August with a week-long celebration that culminates in a celebration of its 100th episode with the “Impractical Jokers Live Punishment Special.” Airing on Sept. 3 and hosted by Howie Mandel, the special promises a “heart-stopping dare that’s above and beyond anything the guys have ever done.”

Jurassic World sequel may have 'hybrid dinosaurs'

28 July 2015 1:57 AM, PDT | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Chris Pratt is confirmed to be returning for 'Jurassic World 2' and the blockbuster is going to take the dinosaur action out of the theme parks. Director Colin Treverrow has confirmed the release date for the sequel will be June 2018 and teased that the movie will include more hybrid dinosaurs, like the current film's Indominus Rex, let loose in the world with Pratt's character, Velociraptor expert Owen Grady, leading the fight to stop them. Treverrow said: ''I feel like the idea that this isn't always going to be limited to theme parks, and there are applications for this science that reach far beyond entertainment. ''Dr. Wu says in the film, when he's warning Dr. Mesrani, 'We're not always going to be the only ones who can make a dinosaur.'
