OK, so we’ve done our fair share of hating on the Ghostbusters reboot… hell, we still freely admit that we aren’t happy about it.
But one thing we must say is that, through it all… and we’ve never seen hatred like this movie is getting… writer/director Paul Feig has keep his cool.
And we talk with him quite regularly (yes, really) and he seems like a genuinely nice guy. But finally today he lost his cool just a little and perhaps gave a little hope at the same time.
With the news that Ernie Hudson and Annie Potts have roles in the new movie (here) there has been some hope that perhaps the movie is more of the soft reboot we hoped for, rather than the full reboot we all feared it was.
Now we aren’t saying it’s isn’t a full reboot, it probably still is, but in the face of adversity by a guy who says he’s annoyed at the reboot and rethreading of a familiar story, Feig retorted: “You all have no idea what we did, so stop acting like you do. Enough is enough. Just let this movie happen. #enough”
He’s right, we don’t know what’s done. We have an idea but no matter what this movie is, or will be, it’s done.
I, for one, have made my peace with this and I’ll save any further judgment until I see it. Truth be told, despite myself, I’m actually kinda looking forward to seeing what Feig does.
Will I be annoyed if it ruins 30 years of legacy? Annoyed isn’t the word, folks… but I’ll tell you all this, there’s so many things in life that need to be stressed over and worried about, but a movie isn’t one of them.
Like it or loathe it, I have to say, I agree… #Enough
