Ivan Reitman says all-male Ghostbusters isn’t happening?


Screenwriter Drew Pearce talked about an all-male Ghostbusters movie and how it will be set in the Ghostbusters universe. When writing the script, he had Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum in mind. However, Ghostbusters producer Ivan Reitman says that it’s not happening. Check out his statement below saying that only the female Ghostbusters movie is in the works.

“There has been a lot of excitement recently about what is happening with the Ghostbusters franchise. As the producer of the new Ghostbusters film, I feel the need to clarify. There is only one new Ghostbusters movie and that is the Paul Feig directed version coming next July, presently filming and going fantastically. The rest is just noise,” Reitman said.

So what is Pearce going on about? Is Reitman trying to put the spotlight back into the female Ghostbusters, which stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon?

Here’s what he told MTV previously:


“I’ve finished my work on that in the last couple weeks. Obviously it’s top secret, but there’s a gigantic bold idea that I came up with, and the Russo brothers — who did Captain America: The Winter Soldier and are doing Civil War at the moment — and Ivan Reitman, who did the original movie, are going to take that and run with it.”

He went on Twitter to clarify that a script hasn’t been written, and that it will include both male and female Ghostbusters.
