A Second, All-Male Ghostbusters Remake Is On Its Way

Possibly starring Channing Tatum.

Hollywood loves to milk a concept for all its worth, and this has once again been demonstrated on a grand scale with the announcement of a second Ghostbusters remake. But here's the twist — this version will star an all male cast, possibly including Channing Tatum.

The news comes only a month after the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, was announced to much elation and fist-bumping world over.

According to reports, Channing Tatum will be a producer and potential star in the male version, and Captain America: The Winter Soldier's Joe and Anthony Russo will direct. Sony is also setting up a production company called Ghostcorps, with Ghostbusters' original director Ivan Rietman and main man Dan Aykroyd taking the reins.

Reitman told Deadline that Ghostcorps "want to expand the Ghostbusters universe in ways that will include different films, TV shows, merchandise, all things that are part of modern filmed entertainment."

He was also sure not to detract from the all-female film due out in June 2016.

"Paul Feig's film will be the first version of that…He's got four of the funniest women in the world, and there will be other surprises to come. The second film has a wonderful idea that builds on that."

We wish them all the luck trying to find a male cast that can live up to the awesomeness of Melissa, Kristen, Kate and Leslie.

Particularly when the Ghostbusters are all:
