Well this is interesting. Dan Aykroyd slams “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig in a British TV interview and Aykroyd claims that Paul Feig spent way too much money on the re-shoot. Aykroyd claims that Paul Feig spent around $30 – $40 million in re-shoots but Sony studios were quick to reply and said that Dan is full of it. Sony said Paul spent about $3 to $4 million.
So since Dan wants to go on to claim Paul spent too much money, Dan fired Paul on the spot and said Paul will not be directing the sequel. For that reason, the 4 women won’t be coming back either.
Somehow I believe Dan isn’t being completely honest. I think he’s secretly upset at Paul ’cause the movie bombed in the box office and maybe Dan is upset of all that Milo controversy about Leslie Jones.
Before the movie got made, Dan seems really excited and thrilled about the movie. He was all for Paul Feig directing 100% and now Dan seems to have turned on Paul all of a sudden. Weird. Ah well, that’s Hollywood, I guess. You can’t trust anyone. Got to deal with big egos and betrayals. Things like that.
I’m sure Sony are gonna try to make another “Ghostbusters” reboot. They will probably give it a try but I wouldn’t be surprised if they try it with male recruits next time.
Still haven’t seen the all-female “Ghostbusters” yet and don’t think I care to. Not interested.
