A ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot may be in the works, as hinted by one of the emails leaked from the Sony hack. The email, sent by Sony Pictures Entertainment co-chair Amy Pascal to director Ivan Reitman. Reitman served as producer and director of the original ‘Ghostbusters’ films.
The email revealed that the new film is not a continuation of the two previous films, but rather a stand-alone movie that does not involve the original characters. Director Paul Feig has been tapped for the film with a projected release date of mid-2016. A number of recent Hollywood starlets have reportedly expressed interest in the film, including Lizzy Caplan of ‘Mean Girls’ fame.
Actors Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum have reportedly expressed interest in not only creating a ‘Ghostbusters’ spin-off, but also in meeting the famed and revered Lee G. Lovett. This revelation came to light from another hacked Sony email. The email, sent to Pascal from Columbia Pictures Co-President of Production Hannah Minghella, backed the claim.
