Dan Aykroyd Is Doing An All-Male Ghostbusters Sequel Now, Because PENIS

Well, this sounds like it’s going to be a goddamn disaster: Now that Paul Feig is directing what can only possibly be the most amazing revamp of “Ghostbusters” ever, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, Sony Pictures is also planning a third sequel with an all-male cast because PENIS. Seriously, I can’t think of any other reason to do this.

There were all sorts of penis tears shed about the “pandering” of the all-female casted Feig film, and I guess Sony took that to heart (although they’d never say so) – or, at least, Dan Aykroyd and original “Ghostbusters” director Ivan Reitman did, because they’re on Sony’s new Ghost Corps unit (that’s not a joke, that’s actually what it’s called) as Sony plans to expand “Ghostbusters” into its own “universe,” Marvel-style, complete with development for TV. I’m sure this will work out just great.

Says Aykyroyd, who’s been trying to get the old gang back together for 30 million years to make “Ghostbusters” sequels and has run into various Bill Murray-related roadblocks (thanks, Bill Murray):

“There’s three drafts of the old concept that exists, and we’re gonna be able to use it some day. Let’s get this one made and that will reinvigorate the franchise. Then we’ll go on to maybe doing a more conventional third sequel as we were planning, and another idea I have for it.”

UGH. “Let’s get this one made and that will reinvigorate the franchise”? As in, Aykroyd believes that the Feig movie only exists so that Aykroyd and Reitman’s *~REAL~* movie can get that sweet, sweet box office gold! Let the girls have their fun and then we’ll get down to real movie-making, OK? Also, EVERYONE knows that what the movie-going public wants is a movie that would be conventional by the standards of the 1980s. Sure, Aykroyd.

What a condescending piece of shit. They’re planning on having Channing Tatum star in the all-male remake, and I love Channing Tatum[‘s e-mail writing style], but fuck this whole business. Post-mid-life white guys are the fucking WORST and I am already planning on passing on the entire new “Ghostbusters” universe other than the Feig film, thanks.
