Ivan Reitman Talks Ghostbusters Reboot And Twins Sequel

by Laura Grande

Depending on where you stand when it comes to revisiting movie classics, the news that director Ivan Reitman is considering a GHOSTBUSTERS reboot is either a brilliant decision to recapture the nostalgia of the original — or a disaster waiting to happen.

Reitman recently provided the media with a bit of a retro rewind as he addressed the public’s interest in the long-rumoured project while promoting the Blu-ray release of his 1993 hit, DAVE. He hinted that, should plans for a new GHOSTBUSTERS film come to fruition, it would most likely be a reboot with a brand new ghost-busting team. Therefore, fans eagerly awaiting news of the return of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, et al. will potentially have to wrap their heads around the idea that a new flick might exist without wise-cracking Peter Venkman and his colleagues.

But a possible GHOSTBUSTERS reboot wasn’t the only potential project open for discussion. Reitman confirmed that he is in talks to helm TRIPLETS, a sequel to his 1988 hit, TWINS. Addressing rumours that the premise would include Eddie Murphy as the long-lost triplet to Danny DeVito and Arnold Schwarzenegger, Reitman admitted that while there wasn’t even a script yet the possibility of revisiting the characters of the hit comedy was not off the table.

What with the recent slew of reboots, re-imaginings and sequels to much-beloved gems from the 1980s, it would appear that the trend has no intention of slowing down in the near future.

A Reboot will turn out just like Total Recall and Judge Dredd A BIG FLOP FORGET REBOOTS . Make Ghostbusters 3 without Bill Murray. Get Dan, Ernie and Harold and Rick (if possible)and a new Big Actor to star. It will be a mega hit
