Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

I still have not watched Ghostbusters 2016 yet.

Everything about it has always turned me off the moment they started marketing this thing; the fact that they replaced the entire cast and titled the movie simply "Ghostbusters", as if to erase everything that came before it were probably my biggest irks. I know it might sound like a minor detail to some people, but to me it really shows what the producers intend for this movie to convey. I hate this modern trend of "rebranding" old IPs and I wish it would die off.

I did watch the trailer of the 2016 movie, but it just looked like a rather predictable modern comedy to me. I know that Ghostbusters was primarily a comedy back in the day, but at the same time I think there was more going on then that and it also had some rather spooky stuff in it as well. I also think that, judging from what I've seen of the 2016 movie so far, the Ghostbusters-cast try really hard to be funny, instead of just working with a natural chemistry and letting the jokes "write themselves", so to speak. I don't know...

It's hard to explain. To me, this is similar to when people say they want to have a movie based on The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy starring John Cleese... Yes, THGTTG can definitely be classified as a comedy, but there's a lot more going on than just the comedy... Does that make sense? :P Sorry for my rambling.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

I'm a girl and I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan. I loved both films, both cartoons, and I even got one of the IDW's comics on my shelf next to an autographed trap and an autographed crystal skull vodka by the Akyroyd himself.

I think we can all agree that the 2016 Ghostbusters movie was not all it was cracked up to be. Was it the gimmick of making the Ghostbusters all female the reason the movie sucked? Nope. Was it the lack of talent from the actors? Nope.

It lacked good chemistry, was poorly written and frankly poorly directed.

An AWIL remake can work with the same gimmick but it can't use that gimmick as a crutch with a crap script and crap director. Fortunately Max Landis might be attached so I'm anxious to see how that works out. I doubt we'll get practical effects that rival the original but hey, you never know.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

If you want a good example of a majority female cast in a horror then you could do a lot worse than The Descent. Fantastic movie. Great acting, writing, direction and cinematography.

It can be done. Ghostbuster 2016 would still have been a disaster if it was an all male cast.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

I actually found GB 2016 highly entertaining. It made me laugh more than a few times.

Nowhere near as good as the original, of course, but it was never going to be.

You've said it: a male cast wouldn't have made it better, on the contrary, I really liked the performance of the girls there.

Galyo,

I completely agree and I as well have not desired to watch Ghostbusters 2016 for the same reasons. Judging from seeing all the trailers, I was simply not convinced the way the new production was done that they paid respect or homage to the prior cast or two movies. The first Ghostbusters movie will always be a classic to me, and I know movies. I'm a big movie fan, but I don't go around like some critics you hear just trashing movies either. I also like a number of movies, such as Dead Silence, that did poorly in theaters because a load of fans pitched a fit.

And just for the record, I probably will not watch Ghostbusters 2016 either. I'll pass on that one just like I will pass on the Michael Bay remakes of the Ninja Turtles.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

Unfortunately, Landis doesn't sound super certain that the movie will even get made. Seems like more shaky news on top of the already unreliable IMDB plot points.

Landis not even being sure the movie is getting made makes it even less likely these rumors had any basis in the first place.

Yes, I understand. Even right now there is a "rumored" male cast in the IMDB page with an almost unknown actor. I've searched through internet about that rumor, and the results are zero... no webpage, no radio program, nothing.
But I really feel that somehow they are working in the shadows, even though Max Landis is actually busy with other projects (Dirk Gently) and who was supposed to be the female lead (Anna Akana) is also busy with other issues (Miss 2059 series). We just can wait and see, no more no less :P.

Max Landis still seems kind of unsure with his whole "I promise you nothing" thing, but he did just recently speak with IMDb about this in an interview and confirmed his role as writer/director. I'll take it as good news for now.
