Recently, when we put up our list of the 10 Movies that Should Never Be Remade; I made sure to include Ghostbusters on the list. A sequel with a new generation of Ghostbusters is fine, but a remake would be blasphemy and should never be attempted. Well, original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is obviously possessed by some crazy spirit as he told Collider in an interview that a remake could be done:
Is it also strange now that people want to know when you’re going to do another Ghostbusters, and that now you’re doing the Twins sequel, Triplets?
REITMAN: Well, I’d like to go forward and make new things. I think Ghostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see. With Triplets, I’m quite nervous about it. I think it’s somebody’s commercial idea, and usually that’s a scary thought. There’s no writer, and there’s no idea yet. I think that was more of a press release than anything else.
NO! Stop this craziness right here. Ghostbusters should NEVER be remade!
