Actress Sigourney Weaver thinks “Ghostbusters: The Legacy” will surprise everyone. The actress is already singing the praises of the future blockbuster, expected on December 1 in theaters.
Ghostbusters: The Legacy – the return of the Ghostbusters family
To return to the origins of Ghostbusters, we have to go back to 1984. It was at this time that filmmaker Ivan Retiman directed the franchise’s first opus. It’s Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, who both star in the feature film., who write the script for this cult film. To complete their team, they call on Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Ernie Hudson. They then become the famous Ghosbusters. The film turns out to be a huge success, both critical and popular with over $ 296 million in revenue (for a budget of $ 30 million). Faced with this triumph, Columbia Pictures decides to launch the production of a sequel.
In 1989 the whole team returned to direct Ghostbusters 2. Again the film is a success with over $ 215 million in box office revenue. Then the universe Ghostbusters was derived from an animated series, in comics, before returning to the big screen in 2016. Indeed, the filmmaker Paul Feig is commissioned by Sony Pictures to stage a female reboot of the franchise. Unfortunately, the work was totally taken down by press critics as viewers despite an honorable box office score of over $ 229 million in revenue (for a budget of 144 million).
A new chapter that promises to be surprising
But Sony does not seem to want to abandon the saga Ghostbusters however. The studio will indeed soon be released S.OS Ghosts: The Legacy, which will follow the first two opus of Ivan Reitman. For the occasion, it is his son, Jason Reitman, who takes care of the staging. Casting side, the cast is made up of Paul Rudd, Carrie Coon and young Mckenna Grace and Finn Wolfhard. Ghostbusters: The Legacy will also be the opportunity to review the original cast since Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd will be there.
In a recent interview with AND Canada, the actress Sigourney Weaver did not refrain from emphasizing the quality of the future opus Ghostbusters :
Ghostbusters: The Legacy is full of heart. This is very fun. It is very charming. And that will surprise everyone. It’s just a great movie.
And that’s good news, especially after the dismal failure of Paul Feig’s. We really hope this new Ghostbusters will live up to our expectations.
