I thought I was dreaming.
In the dream, I saw that a new "Ghostbusters" movie was coming out in 2020. Not a sequel to that dumb disaster from 2016, but a third film to form a trilogy with the original films that came out in 1984 and 1989 respectively. I woke up from the dream, not wanting to rejoin this mundane real world. Obivously, it was a sweet dream, right? There is no way something like that would happen in real life, right?
Oh I know, it doesn't look like much, but the internet is not lying. This has been a secret project brewing at Sony since God knows when. Ivan Reitman, the original director of the first film's son Jason Reitman is directing. While I think Jason Reitman's film "Juno" is one of the most overrated modern movies of all time, I love, love, love his "Thank You For Smoking" and "Up In The Air" so I am really curious and happy to see what he does. I mean, he was a six-year-old kid when he would visit his father's sets for the first "Ghostbusters" movie. It could quite literally be in his blood to not fuck this up.
"Ghostbusters" from 1984 is one of my favorite movies of all time. ALL TIME. I've been very protective of this franchise. This was the movie my grandma would play for us every time I came to visit, she eventually gave me her VHS's simply because I loved them so much. I've got lots of sentimental value in this franchise, which is why the 2016 film rubbed me so wrong. Its going to feel much more right making a movie taking place in the original timeline.
