Well, that’s it, despite all the kicking and screaming – and yes, we did plenty of it ourselves – the Ghostbusters reboot is in the can.
It’s all finished after a day’s shooting in New York City at a very familiar site.
The site? Hook & Ladder 8 or, as most of us know it, the Ghostbusters Firehouse from the original movies… and, as if that’s not enough, there was a familiar face there too; the one and only Ernie Hudson, Winston Zeddmore himself.
We love that Ernie is in the movie as he was always keen to return to the Ghostbusters fold (watch our interview with him about it here) and it feels right that he be in it.
We also love that Hook & Ladder has been made to look like the firehouse we all know and love; check out the red doors!… we’re guessing that in the movie the new team will move into the original HQ or at least look at it and movie on. In one of the pics below, the ladies look like they’re checking it out.
And we love the little GB figures on the monitor top.
Will Hudson perhaps be the landlord/Realtor? It’s likely.
There’s a few online that are hoping beyond hope that with Aykroyd, Hudson and Murray all appearing, perhaps there is a chance that Sony had a change of heart and decided on a ‘soft reboot’ instead i.e. setting the movie in the same world as the other movies. As much as we would love that this were true, we really can’t see it being the case.
But that’s it, folks. The Ghostbusters reboot is finished. Expect a trailer soon before the movie’s release on July 22nd, 2016.
UPDATED: The Boston Herald are reporting Annie Potts , Janice Melnitz in the original movies, has a scene in the reboot as a hotel clerk…
Flapjack at the firehouse.
