New Ghostbusters movie crew logo revealed

May 28th, 2023 by Marc Comments

Earlier this week, confirmed cast member of the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel Emily Alyn Lind shared what appeared to be a behind-the-scenes photo to Instagram, asking her followers, “Who ya gonna call,” while wearing a cap that featured a somewhat familiar, albeit slightly different rendition of the famed no-ghost logo and our good friend Jason at Ghostbusters News has, as always, all the details.

The redesign sees the icon ghost, otherwise known as Mooglie, paired perfectly with London Underground’s roundel symbol, as “FIREHOUSE,” the film’s working title is displayed across the blue bar, in addition to “UK CREW 2023,” placed near the bottom.

As predicted, it didn’t take long for franchise groups to begin posting their own reproduced takes, but for those holding out for the actual logo used by Ghost Corps, GB News were in contact with Andy Bottomley, the artist tasked with the internal redesign. Bottomly, a UK-based graphic designer whose previous credits include Warner Bros. and the BBC, admitted that he still pinches himself after being given the opportunity to take on the redesign:

The original Ghostbusters logo is credited to the late Michael C. Gross, who talked about its origin, saying: “I designed it, but I didn’t create the concept. It’s in Danny Aykroyd’s script. As an art director, I had two artists work on it, and I developed it,” with the script describing it as simply, ‘Casper inside the symbol’.

Man, as June 8th, Ghostbusters Day, approaches, I’m getting more and more excited to hear what goodies are coming and hoping that we will get more details on the new Ghostbusters movie as well as the previously announced animated movie, comic series and much more.

It’s a great time to be a Ghosthead, ain’t it?

Thoughts? I know you have them! Voice-off in the usual ways on FTN’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram

New Ghostbusters movie is still set for this Christmas and two more original cast members seemingly confirmed

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
