With all the leaked emails from Sony floating around, there’s lots of news and rumours bouncing around – from Spider-man to Ghostbusters and everything in between.
The latest leak seems to be from Ghsotbusters III director Paul Feig. In an email to Sony Chief Amy Pascal, Feig pitches his vision for what the movie will be.
Abandon hope all ye who enter here.
In the movie “humans aren’t afraid of no ghosts, he says, because they haven’t met them yet. He says his film will be “scarier and more hi-tech” than the original Ghostbusters: The villain will be a convicted murderer, ideally played by Peter Dinklage, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by “a supercharged electrical storm.” This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. It’s like Night at the Museum! These ghosts will in turn have to be busted by “four very different women” who have to “figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world.”
He goes on to explain that in this universe, “the Ghostbusters will work for the U.S. government, but, because ghosts don’t officially exist, the government will have to continually disavow their relationship. [They will have] a bureaucratic nemesis who’s “always saying terrible things about them in press conferences and then apologizing to them behind the scenes.”
Well, this sounds truly awful, Ghostbusters meets Night at the Museum. Enuff said.
