Ghostbusters sequel will happen, says Sony
A sequel to Paul Feig's Ghostbusters movie is set to be given the greenlight by Sony...
Ghostbusters finally opened in America this past weekend, notching up a $46m opening weekend that's somewhere in the middle of what was being aimed for. Sony, meanwhile, has been quick to confirm that we're set to meet Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones and Kristen Wiig's Ghostbusters again.
“I expect Ghostbusters to become an important brand and franchise,” Sony's chief of worldwide distribution, Rory Bruer told The Wrap. “While nothing has been officially announced yet, there’s no doubt in my mind it will happen", he said. It's unclear as of yet if Feig will return, once Sony hits the greenlight button.
The Ghostbusters reboot has been met with a mixed but generally positive reception by critics and audiences who have actually seen the movie. It was held off the top of the US box office by The Secret Life Of Pets over the weekend.
Ghostbusters extended DVD cut on the way
As the new Ghostbusters finally makes its way into cinemas around the world this month, the co-writer and director of the film, Paul Feig, has revealed that there’s even more to come when it hits DVD and Blu-ray later this year.
Feig has added footage to his last few movies for extended cuts when they arrive on disc, and he’s revealed to DVD Talk that Ghostbusters will not be an exception to that. He revealed to the site, in an interview that went live at the end of last week, that “we are literally, as I talk to you, I'm on lunch break from doing our extended cut of the movie. There will be one, and it will be a good 15 to 17 minutes longer than the theatrical feature”.
The disc is expected this side of Christmas, and will feature both cuts of the film.
