We all know that the all female Ghostbuster's movie has been received with many mixed reviews. A lot of people are loving it and others are just hating every second of it. If you don't remember there was also a male version of sorts going on as well that the Russo brothers were attached to direct as well. It seems however now with Marvel going into Infinity War that a Russo brothers Ghostbusters film wont be happening. I mean Infinity War is a two part movie coming out year after year so yeah that's a huge deal.
When asked by Forbes about the possibility of seeing their Ghostbusters film project they laid it out clearly that its not happening with them. Here is what Joe Russo had to say
There is no status with that for us. There was a period there when Paul Feig was engaging Sony in talks about Ghostbusters and we were also engaging them. He was further along with his process than we were and he closed his deal so that’s the only Ghostbusters world that’s being explored right now over at Sony. Once we took Infinity War, it took us off the table for any kind of any potential work on a Ghostbusters project.
I mean it had to be that with a movie the size of Infinity War that the Russo's would be pretty busy to put anything else on their plate. The movie is set to include every character introduce into the MCU and then some, so yeah the movie is a pretty massive project that will keep them busy for a while. This however doesn't mean the project won't be moving forward into production.
If you were looking for more Ghostbusters movies in the future you don't have to worry about it never seeing the light of day. There is an apparent script ready to go called Ghost Corps, so be excited for that. However it seems if the current Ghostbusters film later this year fails then its possible we wont see any of that male film either.
