The Original 'Ghostbusters' Finally Reunite on EW's New Cover Issue
While Columbia Pictures has struggled for years to get the original cast of Ghostbusters back together for a new feature film, Entertainment Weekly was able to round them up for a much less daunting task: a photo shoot. Yes, the surviving principal cast members of the 1984 classic assembled for a special reunion issue that magazine is having for various other films and television series. Sadly, Harold Ramis is no longer with us, so he doesn't appear with the group, but it's cool seeing Bill Murray finally hanging out with Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver again. We just wish Rick Moranis was there too. Look!
Here's the Ghostbusters reunion on the cover of the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly:
While we may not see this group assemble for another Ghostbusters feature film, that's not stopping Sony from using the brand recognition of the franchise for a new project. Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat, has been hired to be at the helm of a reboot that won't have any narrative ties to the original film franchise, and will feature a group of all-female paranormal investigators this time. More details on the project were discussed by Feig recently, and Bill Murray even weighed in on who he think should strap on a proton pack for the reboot. The project is just now developing though, so we'll see how it shakes out.
