Look, it’s great that modern cinema is taking yet another swing at the Ghostbusters’ franchise instead of, say, doing anything else.
And Paul Rudd, the world’s ageless boyfriend and spokesperson for Ants-Men everywhere, has made a typically charming video about how he’s been tapped for the new Ghostbusters film, to be directed by the original director Ivan Reitman’s son Jason because… um, cinema is genetic, we guess?
So excited is Rudd, he explains in the clip, that he’s slimed himself. Eww.
Anyway, Rudd has infinite charisma and wit. But will it be enough to make people suspend their disbelief long enough to accept a male Ghostbuster?
Can Rudd hope to match the iconic matchup of Yates, Gilbert, Holtzmann and Tolan we remember from our 2016 childhoods? Will he weather the inevitable social media backlash about remaking a classic like Ghostbusters: Answer The Call? Only time will tell.
Anyway, good luck him and his plucky castmates. He could do with finally getting some sort of commercial success after those superhero art films.
