‘Ghostbusters’ Male Reboot Will Star Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt

Since quite some time, everyone has been denying the fact that a male “Ghostbusters” reboot is not in the making and only the all-female version helmed by Paul Feig will be hitting the theaters. However, the latest update about the same confirms what was actually believed. Wait till you hear who is being considered to star in the male version reboot.

According to Comic Book, screenwriter Drew Pearce himself has confirmed that there is an all-male film version in the making and he has finished writing the screenplay for it. Pearce, who is also responsible for writing “Mission: Impossible- Rogue Nation,” spoke about the male reboot on the former’s red carpet premiere.

He mentioned that he and the Russo brothers have a big plan for a shared “Ghostbusters” universe. The screenwriter also confirmed that he finished writing the movie couple of weeks back. Joe and Anthony Russo, who have worked on “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and are currently directing “Captain America: Civil War,” will be taking the script and move forward.

Pierce also mentioned that he can’t reveal more details about the male version right now since it’s confidential, but he has come up with a gigantic idea for the movie. He expects to share more details about it within a year or so. Probably the most interesting thing, the screenwriter confirmed was the fact that he has written the script keeping both megashot actors Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum in mind. Although, right now he is not in a position to confirm their presence in the movie. He believes that these two actors are the cast they have been thinking about or whenever they approach the script.

As far as Paul Feig’s female version is considered, he only had good things to say about it. It was since he himself has been a passionate “Ghostbusters” fan. His dream is to try and make everything occur in the “Ghostbusters” universe. The female version of “Ghostbusters” will hit theaters on July 22, 2016.
