Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” reboot will be bringing back various elements from the original movies, including he Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. The big white guy was the form chosen for Gozer’s ‘Destructor’ at the end of the original 1984 movie.
The four videos focus on the Ghostbusters rocking out, discussing their mission and, of course, facing down a bunch of creepy spirits and monsters.
Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon are the four new Ghostbusters, with Chris Hemsworth playing their receptionist Kevin. Charles Dance and Cecily Strong will also feature, along with the aforementioned cameos from Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts. “Ghostbusters” will release in India on July 15.
Meanwhile, filmmaker Ivan Reitman says if Ghostbusters 3 had happened it would have featured Bill Murray’s character Peter Venkman dying.
The 65-year-old actor wasn’t interested in revisiting the franchise after the 1989 sequel, so the only way of getting him to return was to ensure his character would be killed off, reported Contactmusic.com .
Bill and Sigourney’s kid, Oscar, is a postgraduate student, and weird things start to happen. Bill Murray dies in the first scene, because he always said, ‘I won’t do it unless I die’ “And I said, ‘Okay, you got it.’ It was a father-son story, with him as a ghost. By the way, the studio green-lit it. Everything was ready to go. I couldn’t get his attention, and in the midst of that, Harold got really sick. And that was pretty much it,” Reitman said.
Apart from Murray, the rest of the original cast was up for coming together again.
