I think the all-female reboot thing all happened with the Expendables. That’s when the trend first started when Lionsgate announced that they are planning an all-female version of the Expendables called, “The Expendabelles”. Next here comes the all-female, “Ghostbusters” reboot. Ronda Rousey is doing a female version of “Road House”. What’s next in line? The Ocean’s Eleven franchise. The Ocean’s Eleven franchise that was based on the Rat Pack, the film trilogy directed by Steven Soderbergh and starring Clooney, Pitt and other stars. Now they are doing an all female Ocean’s Eleven with Sandra Bullock in the lead.
I feel this is gonna be an ongoing thing in Hollywood. All female, all everything. What other movie franchises are they gonna do all female versions of? I’m thinking an all-female version of The A-Team could be coming, don’t be surprised. What about a female version of Conan the Barbarian or Rambo? hahahaha….
What’s with the all-female reboot trend? Hollywood thinks this stuff is gonna be a box office draw probably because they know that America is obsessed with women.
I mean, think about it right… look at the large number of chick flicks that were very successful in the box office over the years: the two “Sex and the City” movies, “Bridesmaids”, “The Notebook”, “Dear John”, “Dirty Dancing”, “Ghost” and the list goes on and on and on.
It’s a fact that America loves chick flick movies so the all-female “Ghostbusters” by Paul Feig will probably end up being a box office smash, agree with it or not. The chick flick trend is gonna NOT die anytime soon so get used to it.
