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 »

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, »
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.

The Weinstein Company’s chief operating officer David Glasser has resigned after seven years at the independent studio.
Glasser said he’s leaving the company in search of a new opportunity. He will stay on to find a replacement as TWC prepares for awards season.
“It has been an incredible run at the Weinstein Company, but I have decided to take some time and explore my options in the industry,” Glasser said in a statement. “I will remain with TWC until November, where I will work closely with our team to set up the incredible slate for 2015/2016.”
Bob and Harvey Weinstein said in a statement that they were “disappointed” to hear of Glasser’s decision. “He has been one of the best executives we’ve had the privilege of working with and we have had a tremendous run together,” the Weinsteins said in a statement. “David will be missed at TWC, »

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, »

Sony's movies division hasn't had a great time of it recently, but the surprise success of the PlayStation 4 helped profits swell past analyst expectations in the first quarter of 2015.
The company reported a $780 million (£499m) operating profit for the first three months of the current financial year, which is up 39% year-on-year.
Sony will be pleased with the performance of its games, music and camera sensor divisions, all of which performed strongly.
Thanks to robust sales of the company's latest console and its related products, the games division rose 350% to an income of $157 million (£101m).
Meanwhile, Sony Music's income rose to $256 million (£164m) and its devices business, which produces camera sensors for smartphones, enjoyed a 164% boost to $244 million (£156m).
However, the company's movie line had a less successful start to the year, posting a $94 million (£60m) loss. Sony said that the loss reflects "a decrease in theatrical and television licensing revenues »
Channing Tatum has been talking about wanting to play the X-Men character Gambit for years. Recently he got his chance to do just that in a movie that will be directed by Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes). The Wrap is now reporting that even though the film has been getting ready to start filming to be ready for an October 7th, 2016 release, Tatum is now reconsidering being part o the project. While it's not clear what exactly is happening, it's starting to look like Wyatt and 20th Century Fox may have to find a replacement. Fans are already suggesting Taylor Kitsch, who played the superhero in "X-Men Origins: Wolverine." »
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".
He told MTV that "obviously it’s top secret, but there’s a gigantic bold idea that I came up with, »
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 »

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. Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt were both mentioned in connection with the project, although Tatum and Pratt have both said they're not doing it. Now, writer and overseer Drew Pearce (Mission: Impossible - Rogue Nation, Iron Man 3) has clarified what's going on, and at least confirmed that this mooted other Ghostbusters is still in the works."Obviously it’s top secret," Pearce told MTV, "but there’s a gigantic bold idea that I came up with." He continued that Pratt and Tatum are "definitely the cast we've been thinking about as we approach the project. Whether that happens or not is very much above my pay grade. It's just my job »
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.

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. But once again it looks like that project may still happen, at least according to the guy writing the script. 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. I.ve finished my work on that in the last couple weeks. Obviously it.s top secret, but there.s a gigantic bold idea that I came up with, and the Russo brothers . who did .Captain »
There.s trouble in paradise for the upcoming X-Men spinoff Gambit. Yesterday it was reported that Channing Tatum may drop out of playing the eponymous character due to his deal with 20th Century Fox falling apart. Ever since Fox officially confirmed that Tatum would both star in and produce Gambit at the beginning of the year, things had been moving smoothly, from Rupert Wyatt being hired as director, to Tatum learning how to throw cards and practice a New Orleans accent, so this news was quite the surprise. Keep in mind that that Tatum hasn.t officially exited Gambit, but at the time of this writing, things aren't looking good. For the sake of argument, however, let.s assume Channing Tatum does decide to drop out. Whether Fox keeps their original October 2016 release date or decides to delay it, they will still have to find a replacement to portray Remy »
