    They can do a Ghostbusters that obviously adresses the fact that they are old, but without turning it into a seniors parody.
    Akroyd is 67 this year. Murray is 68. Hudson is 73. Weaver is 69. Ramis has died. Even for movie characters toning down the age and faking it, they're way too old to even pretend to "just now be reaching retiring age in a super active job." They would have been too old or that even in the 2016 film.

    And Rick Moranis retired from acting twenty years ago, so... no. There's really no getting them back together for a proper sendoff as the old characters at this point. The time for that would have been the late 90's, early 00's at the latest.

    Best we've got is the video game from 2009 that got them all to do the voices, and was actually written by Akroyd and Ramis. (I have no idea how they convinced Murray to come in and record lines. Personal favor? Or maybe he was willing because it was only like an hour of his time and he phoned it in)

    I wasn't aware of this, at all.

    I might actually watch it when I have the time O_o. The youtube comments seem favorable.

    It actually is pretty good. A bit long for an actual film, and awkward because it IS a video game so they're addressing the player from time to time, but pretty solid.

    I like the Ghostbusters crossover comic books. Different teams can work, but I think the franchise has the same problem as Star Wars. It's grown so big and so personal to so many fans there'll always be a big chunk of people that hate it no matter what you do.

    Anyway, I want it to continue, Ghostbusters is one of the best ideas for a story ever. I say go with the in-universe franchise idea from the comics and give us a different team in a different city (or parallel universe) a movie and give the popular ones sequels.

    I see nothing wrong with having the old guys heavily involved with whatever's happening now. Old folks that age still work all over the world, doing all types of jobs, especially fairly unofficial ones like "Ghostbusting" where the retirement and Social Security benefits are likely not up to snuff. I'd wager we'll get some kind of passing of the torch, at least, from these guys. And if the torch has already been passed, they'll still be involved, heavily, in some way or shape.

    Yes, 100 times yes.

    --- Update From New Post Merge ---

    Can we just pick up the characters of Extreme Ghostubusters to avoid the unnecessary complains about casting?

    Or, the New Ghostbusters (Janine, Kylie from Extreme GB, FBI Agent Ortiz, and Ron [a guy who tried to start his own ghostbusting business using stolen proton pack plans]) from the comics. Switch Janine with her daughter or niece, throw in a Walter Peck character trying to keep them under his/her thumb, and there we go.

    Can we just let Ghostbusters rest in peace? The only good things that came out of it was the original movie, the animated show, and Ecto Cooler. They could have made up for the awfulness of the sequel if they picked back up right away, but after all these years I can't imagine it would be anything but depressing.

    Like Nectar, I've been enjoying the hell out of IDW's Ghostbuster comics (their Ninja Turtles and recently ended Transformers books are also excellent) and wouldn't mind seeing some sort of influence in there. Although I doubt a dimensional portal that allows access to the 2016 universe would work as well in a movie.

    But I'd have no problem with a passing of the torch type movie where the 80s guys are masters in their fields and have a team of trainees who are science savvy enough to introduce new elements and angles to capturing ghosts.

    I think that'd pretty much have to be it...unless it's a last hurrah and they all go out one more time to save the world or something, and they just find someone to take Egon's place.

    The cast will be 4 teens, two male and two female from what I have read, but I am sure the old cast will be back to pass the torch and play a mentor role. Aykroid already confirmed he would be in the movie months ago, so bringing Hudson and Murray in as well shouln't be a big deal, considering Jason Reitman is directing and there is obvious history there.

    That trailer largely did nothing for me. Nothing outside of the nostalgic memorabilia felt like Ghostbusters to me. I did kinda dig the mega toyetic Ecto1 battle seat tho.

    But didn't they say some of the old guys are in the new movie? So they were just talking about cameos and the main cast is a bunch of kids?

    Thanks, I hate it. But I guess it's just one of those movies you're supposed to take your children to. Some nostalgia for you and the kids swallow *whatever* anyway.

    Mostly comments about how everyone ignores the 2016 movie and how THIS is a Ghostbuster trailer the franchise deserved. Oh, and comments about one of the child actors who apparently has some sort of fanbase.

    Personally I'm just mega bitter because they teased with the old actors coming back... and now I'm confronted with this main cast.

    Douchebros cheering about how they were right all along about the 2016 movie being a travesty, and they were right all along for trashing that "feminazi sjw crap".

    Nevermind that Ghostbusters 2 exists and is the actual worst Ghostbusters movie.

    Especially since the problem with the 2016 Ghost Busters movie wasn't the women leads, just bad writing and gross out humor and bringing nothing new to the table in terms of plot

    They could have done the exact same movie with men and it would be just as bad if not worse
