Meredith Richardson, who is Kate McKinnon's stunt double in Ghostbusters, has unveiled this ecto-tastic behind-the-scenes video on her official Instagram page featuring Luci Romberg (stunt double for Melissa McCarthy), Jessi Fisher (stunt double for Kristen Wiig) and Alyma Dorsey (stunt double for Leslie Jones) dancing to the famous Ghostbusters theme on their last day on set!:
The goal of most reboots, redo's and revivals in production is to kickstart a fresh franchise. Following promising early signs that the new Ghostbusters movie is a hit, it looks promising that there will be a sequel. The man himself is, as he told the Empire Podcast, primed and ready for that possibility.
"I’ve got a story in line,” Feig tells Empire of a potential next outing for the now fully-fledged 'busters. It's one that may even take Erin (Kristen Wiig), Patty (Leslie Jones), Abby (Melissa McCarthy) and Jillian (Kate McKinnon) out of the Big Apple, in a franchise-first spot of long-distance parapsychology. "I might go to some other places too,” hints the movie’s director and co-writer.
"I’ve always steered clear of doing sequels just because I always liked to do new stuff,” continues Feig, "but this world is so rich and this cast is so great [that] I’d be open to it. There’s so much stuff that can be done.” Get the fire extinguishers ready on Redd…
Slimer almost had an origin story featured in the brand new Ghostbusters film! Director Paul Feig chatted with WIRED about what both he and co-writer Katie Dippold cooked up for Slimer's pre-death and how the Ghostbusters helped him become the green blob we all know and love!:
It never made it into the new reboot of ‘Ghostbusters,’ but writer Katie Dippold and director/co-writer Paul Feig definitely wrote a backstory for one of the franchise’s most beloved characters: Slimer.
A backstory for Slimer would of been good, but I don't like to think of Slimer as a ghost of a baddie, he's too kind.
It's official, the Ghostbusters are back in action, and have just claimed $46 million of the weekend box office! The films solid opening claimed second spot right behind the family friendly Secret Life of Pets ($50.6 million) and went to have the best debut for a live action comedy in over a year!
When asked about what's next for the Ghostbusters franchise, Sony's marketing distribution chief Josh Greenstein said "There absolutely will be more [films]," and added "This is a restart of one of our most important brands."
The film also boasts a certified fresh rating via RottenTomatoes.com with a current overall of 73% and a user rating that is currently on the rise!
Ghostbusters (2016) is simply amazing! Just go see it! If you were put off from seeing the movie from its trailers, ignore them, never judge a book by its cover, forget the trailers, the movie plays out a bit different than the trailers suggest. Forget the hate from "fans" who are reviewing the movie before they have even watched it, too, and go see it, you won't be disappointed!
Its not better or worse than the original 1984 Ghostbusters, its an equal. The new cast are great, and seeing most of the original cast (including Slimer) along with the new cast (including Slimer's friends), what have you got to lose?
Also, stay right to the end of the credits for a fantastic tribute to the late, great Harold Ramis, and a surprise Easter Egg, which may hint that a sequel may be made (there needs to be a sequel!).
