Awil remake female lead rumor

So I did some digging and found an imbd page for the remake about a girl named Alex and her bf getting attacked an she becomes the wolf. Personally I just want a good female change this could be it. Nut we all know too well about crushing disappointment. Hahah thoughts?

The Ghostbusters remake had female leads. That didn't work out.

Once again, you're late to the party, dude. The remake has already been discussed in detail here. Please use the search tools on this forum. In fact, I just read an article today with an interview with David Naughton, the original AWIL, and he said he's begging Max to have a cameo in the remake, even as a guy who gets killed. In case you don't know, Max Landis, the son of John Landis (the original's writer-director), is writing and directing the remake, and yes, it appears that it's going to star a female werewolf this time. Here is the article:

That's a bit unfair of a comparison. Werewolf movies are pretty solitary affairs, so you only *really* need one good performance from the lead. Whereas ghostbusters lives or dies on its group dynamics, so not only do you need *four* good performances, they have to gel with each other simultaneously.

I feel like even the people who liked Ghostbusters 2016 have forgotten about it by now. Nerds need to let that one go.

I really liked the Ghostbusters remake. And I also like the two older films, for me they are different things, and enjoy them all.
What I believe it happened is that the older films were AAA movies in the days when such movies had less competence, there were less previous references and consequently they became even cultural icons that fulfilled spaces that were empty. But the remake was a AA movie that had to fight against larger products, against the fact that they weren't offering anything "original" (ironic, eh?), and the shameful memory of the whinning fans from the older movies, thinking that every past time was better.
If this AAWIL happens, I am going to watch it. Even in the case of a male lead I will watch it. Or even (God, forgive me) if they make it CGI, as long as it would be a good film by its own merits .

You mean like An American Werewolf in Paris?

GB'16 was also an awful, awful movie. That had nothing to do whatsoever with the genders of its protagonists, but I can definitely understand why some morons in Hollywood would see it that way.

It's depressing, because people are liable to use GB'16 as another excuse for why there should never be a female Doctor Who.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

Ghostbusters '16 was the definition of a "love it or hate it" movie (I for one enjoyed it), but there are far too many ulterior motives flying around to properly gauge critical reception, so it'll just go down as a mistake. No doubt it hurt Paul Feig's reputation, flying high after Bridesmaids...

Well, then count me as at least one counterexample to your theory. I didn't love it. I didn't hate it. I thought it was "meh."

Even "meh" is unforgivable by Ghostbusters standards. if you're going to remake a film revered THAT much by THAT many fans, you'd better know what you're doing. Feig didn't.

Re: Awil remake female lead rumor

I agree the gender of the cast has nothing to with GB16. The Story was just bad and sometimes hard to follow. Also the Cast just didn't really draw you in. The only Stand out was Abby. Just bad story. Gender doesn't matter. I've always play with the idea what if a woman were in a man role from a TV show or Movie and the other way around!
