That's not nice.

Leslie Jones Slams New 'Ghostbusters' Film: "It's Like Something Trump Would Do"

Quote:
Leslie Jones Slams New 'Ghostbusters' Film: "It's Like Something Trump Would Do"

In response to the news that Jason Reitman's new Ghostbusters project will continue the story that began with Ivan Reitman's 1984 original and its 1989 sequel, and ignore the female reboot from director Paul Feig in 2016, Leslie Jones, a cast member from the latter, has voiced her disappointment on social media.

The comedian took to Twitter on Saturday in a post that said, "So insulting. Like f--- us. We dint count. Its like something trump would do. (Trump voice)Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge. Those women aint ghostbusteeeeers ugh so annoying. Such a d--- move. And I dont give f--- Im saying something!!"

Jones tagged her fellow Ghostbusters co-star Melissa McCarthy, along with Reitman. So far there have been no responses from anyone involved in the film, which has received backlash since the announcement of its intent. In England, a journalist wrote an "open letter to Jason Reitman," citing his missed opportunity.

Feig's Ghostbusters received mostly positive reviews upon its release (it currently sits at a 74 percent Rotten Tomatoes score) and grossed $229 million worldwide, and in particular the strong foundation of female friendship was mentioned in many reviews.

Reitman is writing the screenplay for his film in collaboration with Gil Kenan. Casting details have not yet been released, though the film is set to enter theaters in 2020.


It'll probably be a loser, anyway.

Here's an idea: someone writers should start thinking of new ideas for movies.

No way brahsef. It's all about recycling old story lines with white male leads and subbing in an intersectional cast. That's how you stick it to the patriarchy shaka

It always fascinates me that you, Caca and ifail are triggered by what celebrities think and deem that important enough to post.

Is it supposed to be a proof of something?

Putting Jones' remarks in context, they got a shit-ton of shit thrown on them even before the trailer was out.

Granted it's not the best remake (nor is it the worst), but people were going after director Feig and the all-female cast as soon as they heard it was in the works, long before anyone had seen any part of it.

And then, of course, there was that one fabulously right-wing nut job celebrity who reposted a bunch of racist stuff and got his fans to all attack Jones. He got kicked off twitter for it, and rightfully so.

Whatever, this will all blow over by Trump's next Tweet.

+1

Seems like everything is either a comic book movie or a remake. Some gems still sneaking through here and there though. I'm not too distressed about it though considering I might see one movie a year in the theaters. Plenty backlogged on Amazon/YouTube TV. beer

Yea its sad - something like Beetlejuice in this day and age would never get made. No one is willing to take risks at all so what we get is reboot after reboot. I mean how many different spiderman rebrands have we had in the last 10 years. 4?

The Ghostbusters sequel with all the chicks was horrible and should be forgotten - great actresses, just horrible material to work with.

Wouldve loved to see one with whats left of the o.g. cast

I like watching one-off movies. Most of the sequels aren't that great - the plot devices aren't sustainable unless they're part of a larger big-picture story arc.

As I recall, the sequel to the original Ghostbusters sucked hard. The first John Wick flick was fun but the sequel was completely mindless. The Matrix had a couple interesting ideas going for it but it would have worn a lot better had they never made the sequels.

The first Oceans 10 was fun for the nostalgic rat-pack factor but the 2nd one was severely strained and the the 3rd one was just plain stupid - they phoned that one in. This was the backdrop for the me-too version. They were following an already too-long franchise.

I can't think of any remakes of female movies where they swapped in the males, although there probably are some out there. But if so they don't stand out. Which goes back to the sequel problem.

I can't watch TV dramas or many of the comedies for the same reason. They're unsustainable unless the story revolves around several ongoing and unresolved internal conflicts that lead to a more natural state of tension.

Generally I agree with you, GDaddy. There are some exceptions (that probably prove the rule). As far as TV,/streaming, Veep, Blacklist, Man in High Castle, Game of Thrones all are good. Eons better than the formulaic hospital, FD, cop, fed shows.

Brewster's Millions was quality remake. Think Scarface was one too.

Aliens was a worthy sequel. Godfather II.

Damn. I hope they don't try to reboot that. We would get Rosie O'Donnell as Dona Corleone. Except with koosh balls instead of oranges whenever anything bad happens.

We can all justifiably join ISIS at that point.

Dona Corleone, and her son Michael would be gay, just to keep it contemporary.
