GHOSTBUSTERS 3

DIRECTOR: Paul Feig.  CAST: Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.

Ghostbusters 3 was a rumor for a long time but earlier in 2014 it was confirmed that a reboot would definitely be coming to a theater near you in the near future. What has been officially confirmed is that the Ghostbuster crew will consist of an all female cast! Some of the rumors that have floated around before the cast was announced were that: some of the original cast will return or that Oscar(Sigourney Weaver’s character’s son)will become a Ghostbuster now as an adult.

What has been shared via Twitter from the film’s director @PaulFeig is this: “It’s official. I’m making a new Ghostbusters & writing it with @katiedippold & yes, it will star hilarious women. That’s who I’m gonna call.”

The original director Ivan Reitman was on board to direct this latest installment but he stepped down after the passing of the original Ghostbuster and writer of the film, Harold Ramis who played Egon Spegler. Reitman stayed a part of the film as a producer. Filming is set to being in the summer of 2015 in New York City. UPDATES: Chris Hemsworth has been cast to field the calls for the all female-cast of Ghostbusters as the receptionist.

UPDATES & CAMEO NEWS: Chris Hemsworth has been cast to field the calls for the all female-cast of Ghostbusters as the receptionist. Cameos by the original cast members Sigourney Weaver, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts have been confirmed to happen!

PLOT: Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy play a pair of unheralded authors, Erin Gilbert and Abby Yates, who write a book positing that ghosts are real. Flash forward a few years and Erin(Wiig) lands a prestigious teaching position at Columbia U. (Like the original, the story takes place in New York City, even though it’s being shot in Boston.) Which is pretty sweet, until her book resurfaces and she is laughed out of academia. Erin reunites with Abby(McCarthy) and the other two proton pack-packing phantom wranglers, and she gets some sweet revenge when ghosts invade Manhattan and she and her team have to save the world.” via: BostonHerald

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: (Filming begins 2015 – Releases: JULY 22nd, 2016)

POLTERGEIST

DIRECTOR: Gil Keenan.  CAST: Jared Harris, Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, and Jane Adams.

The classic horror film is getting a sequel/remake through 20th Century Fox with Gil Keenan as the film’s director. The cast and plot have been confirmed and the film will be made in 3D.  2015’s Poltergeist writer has re-imagined and revamped the tale of a family’s suburban neighborhood home being invaded by terrifying spirits. With a drastic change in special effects available today and knowing that there are more electronics today then when the original film was made, we can safely assume that the spirits may go beyond simply coming through the television.

Jared Harris will play the celebrity ghost hunter and host of a cable TV show called Haunted House Cleaners in the film. The Bowen family will be played by Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, and Kennedi Clements as the youngest daughter of the Bowen family.  Jan Adams has been cast as Dr. Claire Powell.

PLOT: The film follows the classic horror tale of a family’s suburban neighborhood home being invaded by angry and terrifying spirits. When the frightening apparitions become more forceful while terrorizing the family, they escalate their attacks to the point of taking the youngest daughter. The family must unite to try and rescue her.

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: JULY 24th, 2015

INDEPENDENCE DAY: RESURGENCE:

DIRECTOR: Roland Emmerich.  CAST: Jeff Goldblum, Liam Hemsworth, Jessie Usher, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Maika Monroe, Joey King, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Judd Hirsch, Brent Spiner, Sela Ward, William Fichtner, and Angelababy.

“Independence Day 2” which will be called “ID Forever Part 1” was announced in 2013 with Roland Emmerich set as the director. The film was given a 2016 release date for the first of a two-part sequel to the blockbuster hit “Independence Day”. The initial plan was to shoot both ID Forever Part 1 “Independence Day 2” and ID Forever Part 2 “Independence Day 3” back to back. The latest change announced officially is the title of “Independence Day Part 2” which is now titled INDEPENDENCE_DAY:_RESURGENCE.

What we can probably look forward to and expect: The story will have a new generation of humans defending mankind against their dangerous alien adversaries in a whole new way with all of the CGI special-effects available today that was not around in the 90’s. UPDATE ON CASTING: First off, Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, and Vivica A. Fox are set to reprise their roles. AWESOME! Liam Hemsworth is taking a role as an alien butt-kicker in the upcoming ID2 film. Jessie Usher has also been cast and is being dubbed as “Will Smith 2.0” who will play (Will Smith’s character in the 1996 film)-Steven Hiller’s step-son, who I assume is Vivica A. Fox’s son from the first film. Maika Monroe has been cast as President Whitmore’s daughter which was originally played by Mae Whitman in the ID1 film.

UPDATES & CAMEO NEWS: Jeff Goldblum, Bill Pullman, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, and Brent Spiner will all return to reprise their roles.

PLOT: 20 years after the events of the first film, a new wave of alien “reinforcements” arrive at our planet in response to a distress signal sent up by the “first wave” of extraterrestrial visitors. As expected, insanity ensues. (via: Bloody Disgusting)

EXPECTED RELEASE DATE: JUNE 24th, 2016 (filming begins in 2015)
