A earlier yesterday, we heard about plans for a possible Ghostbusters spinoff which would star Chris Pratt (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe: Retaliation).
However, another leaked set of emails - this time between Sony boss Amy Pascal and Bridesmaids helmer Paul Feig - reveal a ton of new details about the planned reboot featuring a female team of Ghostbusters.
WATCH OUT SPOILERS AHEAD!!
According to Vulture, humans know nothing about ghosts in this world because they haven't made their presence felt as of yet. It's when the movie's villain (a convicted murderer the director envisions being played by Peter Dinklage) is turned into a ghost after his electric chair execution is hit by what they call "a supercharged electrical storm" that things change because he gains the ability to raise an army of ghosts, many of whom could be well-known historical "villains".
As you might imagine, this leads to "four very different women" coming together to "figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world."
These Ghostbusters will work for the US government, but because ghosts don't "officially" exist, the government will deny having a relationship with these ladies, going so far as to say,
"terrible things about them in press conferences and then apologizing to them behind the scenes."
It's a potentially very interesting dynamic and sounds like it could be a lot of fun if handled the right way. Despite the fact that it's described as a reboot, perhaps the events of the original movies could be referenced as being a government follow-up? Either way, this certainly sounds at least somewhat better than most of us expected.
