Ghostbusters Reboot Will Be Set In New York

GHOSTBUSTERS 3

Director Paul Feig spoke with Empire about his new reboot of the Ghostbusters, he’s revealed a few more details on the film including that it will in fact still be set in New York City.

“To me it’s such a New York movie and the biggest sin would be to pull it out of there,” Feig said. “I just love New York and, selfishly, I just want to shoot in New York.”

“We’re not recreating the old movie, but we want to do just enough fun nods that the fans will go, ‘Oh, okay, they’re acknowledging that the other movie existed.’ I like to watch parodies, but I don’t want to do them because they’re too referential. Comedy that’s too referential has such a short shelf life, whereas comedy that’s based around characters will be relatable 2000 years from now because people won’t change that much.”

“Why reboot Ghostbusters?” is the main question in our minds and its been answered by Feig.

 “A lot of people ask why I didn’t create my own thing, but Ghostbusters never ran out of steam, it’s such a great idea, It’s such a fun franchise so why not bring it to a new generation? The old movie is never going to not exist. It’s not my plan to erase every copy! Hopefully they can all live together.”

There is no release date set for the movie nor Ghostbusters reboot cast has been announced.
