Leslie Jones says she hopes new Ghostbusters movie isn't 'all men'

21 January 2019

The project, skipping over the Paul Feige 2016 all-lady reboot entirely, will function as a continuation of the narrative of the original two movies from the 1980s.

Leslie Jones is not holding back over what she feels about another new Ghostbusters movie reportedly in the works!

While details on the new movie are scarce, it has been rumoured this week that it will focus on four teenagers - two male, two female - while Ernie Hudson has suggested that the original cast are on board to reprise their roles.

It seems like, whatever Reitman's precise plans are, Feig's cast was not consulted.

However, the movie - which came with a hefty production budget of $US144 million, and a big marketing spend - still posted a disappointing loss at the box office.

Jones is one of the stars of Feig's Ghostbusters reboot, and, following its release, became a target for its most toxic detractors, led by the now Twitter-banned Milo Yiannopoulos.

After the female-led version of Ghostbusters was released, Jones was forced to leave Twitter after she received a swathe of disgusting racist abuse. Such a d*ck move.

Dan and Harold also wrote the screenplay of the 1984 and 1989 films, while Jason and Gil Kenan are writing the new one, according to Variety. "And I don't give f- I'm saying something!"

Last week, Up in the Air director Jason Reitman announced that he will be directing a film for summer 2020 that follows new characters through the same world that was saved from the apocalypse in the original story.

Jones' tweet and the responses from her supporters reference the gender politics that were at the heart of the reboot's controversy, with immature dolts bashing the idea of women busting ghosts.

"Maybe I could have use (sic) different words but I'm allowed to have my feelings just like them".
