Ghostbusters 3 Resurrected - The Controversy Continues
~ Midnight's Edge, 2019-01-26 (21:07)
On January 15th of 2019, Entertainment Weekly broke the scoop that the legacy sequel Ghostbusters 3 is in development, and set for release on July 10th of 2020. It will ignore Paul Feig’s 2016 remake.
While the announcement was celebrated by the fans of the franchise, the decision to ignore the female centric remake has been widely derided and heavily criticized by numerous media outlets and other commentators. Emotions are high, the offense is deep, and the pitchforks are ready.
How on earth could merely announcing a new Ghostbusters movie turn into something this controversial?
And could the backlash cause Sony to get cold feet and pull the plug?
In this editorial, @AndreEinherjar will uncover that, by first providing take on what makes the original such a cherished classic, and recap how what started out as Ghostbusters 3 ended up as Paul feig’s remake in the first place. Then, how that remake became a symbol, and still flopped, before moving on to how this new movie could get announced, and if there is any chance the current pushback may ultimately prevent it from getting made.
