Sony Might Be Making a Ghostbusters Sequel With Dudes

Mar 09, 2015

Well, ladies can't have all the fun. Following the news of Paul Feig's female-fronted Ghostbusters reboot, Sony Pictures is showing its commitment to diversity with another next-generation installment, this time aimed at the incredibly underserved niche market known as... dudes.

“We want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment,” the original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, who's helping seer Sony's Ghostworks production company with original 'buster Dan Aykroyd, told Deadline. “Paul Feig’s film will be the first version of that, shooting in June to come out in July 2016. He’s got four of the funniest women in the world… the second film has a wonderful idea that builds on that."

The Feig film stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.

Reitman is assembling the behind-the-scenes, which may include Captain America: The Winter Soldier directors Anthony and Joe Russo, as well as Channing Tatum and his producing partners—which means Tatum may also end up starring in the series as one of the supernatural exterminators. So let the dream casting begin—again.
