The original 1984 band is almost all back together again with stars Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson signing on to appear in Jason Reitman's Ghostbusters 2020.

'Ghostbusters': Jason Reitman Back Peddles, Clarifies 'Back To Fans' Comment

Good for Jason Reitman, we guess, attempting to clarify his comments about wanting to "hand the movie back to fans" regarding his Ghostbusters 3 project at Sony, which will theoretically completely ignore the 2016 all-female version. Considering how heated Ghostbusters Gate got when the initial 2016 film was announced, it seemed like Reitman (who's father Ivan Reitman directed […]

Who knew that the Ghostbusters fandom was more alive and well in 2019 than it was 30 years ago?

After all the ectoplasm vitriol lobbed towards the cast and crew of the 2016 Ghostbusters film, we didn't really think Jones' strongly worded tweet needed an explanation. But judging by the sheer amount of tweets […]

Ernie Hudson Comments on 'Ghostbusters 3': No Disrespect, But-

We were partially hoping the ectoplasm venom of Ghostbusters-gate was behind us after the release and ultimate panning of Paul Feig's 2016 all-female reboot. It doesn't really matter what you think of that particular film in this instance, just remember everyone involved with it is a PERSON, and worthy of respect. Obviously, several of you [yes, even […]

Hugh Jackman Will Play Senator Gary Hart In Political Drama 'The Frontrunner'

The Wolverine franchise is taking a very strange new direction. Following the success of R-Rated Logan, the next Wolverine movie, subtitled The Frontrunner, will star Hugh Jackman as real-life politician Gary Hart, according to a report from Variety. Hart was the early frontrunner for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination (hence the name). Hard dropped out […]
