"I want to make a movie for my other Ghostbusters fans."
By Hope Corrigan
The director of the upcoming movie Ghostbusters, Jason Reitman, said his film was meant to appeal to fans of the first two films.
In a Monday morning interview of Bill Burr's podcast (via The Playlist), Reitman, the son of the director of the original movie Ivan Reitman, made several comments that may move this film away from the restart of 2016. Reitman thinks that this film will be more in line with Ghostbusters' original films, citing his attachment to films made in his youth.
"This is going to be a love letter to Ghostbusters," said the director. "I love this franchise." "I grew up watching her." I consider myself the first fan of Ghostbusters. "I was seven when this movie came out and I want to make a movie for my other Ghostbusters fans. "
According to Reitman, great efforts have been made to bring back elements of the original films, even for the recently published short teaser.
"We went back to the working files for the sound of the proton pack. And we went back to the sources of Elmer Bernstein's score, "Reitman explained. Just where it says, in the teaser, "Sumer 2020", we went back and found the original physical vinyl letters with which they created the ghostbusters 1984. The rescanned then our titles guys have them reprinted. We filmed the titles. Not like in a computer. We shot physical titles with a light effect and smoke because that's how they would have done in the day … We try in all respects to return to the original technique and make the film to the fans. "
Reports suggest that this new sequel will feature children as the main characters. Actor and actress Leslie Jones, who starred in the restart of 2016, compared the remake to "something Trump would do".
