The Ghostbusters Reboot That Shouldn\’t Happen


ghostbustersRecently a story came out about a possible plot for a third Ghostbusters movie that never happened. Generally it seemed to be a good third sequel (and send off) for the original Ghostbusters crew, and most fans would’ve loved to have seen that movie be made.

Unfortunately Sony has decided to reboot Ghostbusters completely, and now Vulture has a rundown about what it’s about. Prepare to throw up:

In the email, Feig explains the film is a reboot, not a sequel — humans aren’t afraid of no ghosts, he says, because they haven’t met them yet. He says his film will be “scarier and more hi-tech” than the original Ghostbusters: The villain will be a convicted murderer, ideally played by Peter Dinklage, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by “a supercharged electrical storm.” This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. It’s like Night at the Museum! These ghosts will in turn have to be busted by “four very different women” who have to “figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world.”

In addition to that “Night at the Museum” stupidity, the Ghostbusters will work for the government (who doesn’t believe ghosts exist). Aside from what’s happening with Spider-Man, hopefully the recent Sony hack will stop this from being made.
