I'm stoked for the Paul Feig-directed female [Ghostbusters (2016)](tag:32733), but I would have also been interested in the Channing Tatum-led film that was to be directed by the Russo brothers. Simply put, it's still a very topical and hot franchise no matter how you decide to spin it. I don't personally think the all-female version would have made me any less down for a male version.
Well, sadly there is news from Tatum himself that this version is more than likely a no-go. Here's what Channing had to say when speaking to Screen Rant:
We’re not doing that anymore. No I don’t think so, I think it’s too complicated. There’s a lot of things going on with that brand and I just feel like it’s over-saturated.
I don't know if I buy the over-saturation argument. I think that if they had done a 22 Jump Street-style comedy with Tatum's humor and action prowess, they could've had a hit on their hands... even if the female version was a hit as well. There's no telling how big the Ghostbusters brand in general could've grown to be.
So, yeah, I'll leave it up to you guys. Which version of Ghostbusters movies would you prefer to see?
What would you like to see most from the Ghosbusters franchise?
