Sony and Director Paul Feig have a tall order ahead of them. They have to take one of pop culture’s most beloved films and reboot it. The movie/ franchise in question is “Ghostbusters.”
The 1984 classic is going to be hard to beat. Directed by Ivan Reitman, it features an all-star cast including: Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, and Rick Moranis. It only had a budget of $30 million but the box office came in at just under $300 million. It’s over 30 years old and folks STILL love it….A LOT!
Feig has a pretty good cast of his own to work with including: Melissa McCarthy (Abby Yates), Kristen Wiig (Erin Gilbert), Kate McKinnon (Jillian Holtzman), Chris Hemsworth (Kevin), Andy Garcia, Michael K. Williams, Matt Walsh, and Leslie Jones (Patty Tolan). As an added bonus there will be cameos by original cast members, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts.
Here are the first four character posters for the film. Give them a look and let us know what your thoughts are on the posters AND the reboot in general.
“Ghostbusters” hits theaters on July 22nd, 2016.
