I'm sure this is in very early discussions.

Though I seriously doubt Disney paid Paramount for this franchise to just sit on it.

Hey, Carrell as "d1ckless" would be great.

Hollywood has done remakes since the beginning of time. But now they are remaking *our* movies, and that hurts.

I was amused when everyone was up in arms over the idea of remaking SCARFACE a couple of years ago.

They could, you know, keep using Spielberg, Kasdan, and Ford - that combo's worked out pretty well.

I'm not generally bothered by remakes, but this one bugs me because I would much rather have it be a sequel. Set in a world where the original Ghostbusters existed and set up franchises. That was part of Aykroyd's original concept, and I like that idea so much, I hate to see it not used.

Granted, I have read Feig's reasoning behind the reboot. That characters encountering ghosts for the first time is much bigger dramatically than if they lived in a world where everyone had known about ghosts for decades.

Still. I just love the idea of taking an film like Ghostbusters and then returning to that world decades later to see how the events altered society.

I think the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull would disagree with you.

(I know Kasdan didn't have anything to do with that)

I never saw it. But there were (supposedly) supposed to be five...

Terrible cast, great that they're female leads though.

I'm not keen with the all-female cast because IT WAS DONE FOR THAT REASON, not because of interesting characters.

Given movies nowadays need to appeal to restless tweens, we're gonna see both a CGI-infested crapfest for both GB and Indy reboots.
