Default "Ghostbusters" (2020)



The Ecto-1 has been spotted on set now:

https://www.tmz.com/2019/08/05/ghost...ing-new-movie/

My concern is... why is this the Ecto-1 and not the Ecto-1A, from GB2? Was the car in GB2 literally supposed to be a whole new vehicle?

I sure hope they're not ignoring GB2...

All things considered after 2016,I am not Going to crucify them for a tiny continuity error.

Very true. Though I'm less thinking it's a continuity error or intentional oversight as much as a conscious decision to shirk GB2.

I wouldn't imagine so. It's not like GB2 is held in any disdain by fans.

This is very insulting to the ladies and fans of the 2016 movie. Very disappointing and backwards that they would do this.

I don't want to sound insulting, but I'm wondering if you are serious about this.

Is it really "insulting" that they would actually do a straight-up sequel based on the original movie(s)? Something that they have, reportedly, been trying to get off the ground for years, since before the 2016 movie was even proposed?

Certainly, that this movie is finally getting made now, after the 2016 film, DOES seem to argue that they don't have much confidence in the ability of the new cast to successfully carry the franchise forward. I assume that the performance of that film was disappointing to the studio, and this is their last-ditch attempt to see if they can still make money off the property by going back to its roots.

But is that INSULTING?

I imagine that, as disappointed as fans of the 2016 film might be by this development, the announcement of the 2016 film was a disappointment to those that wanted more of the Ghostbusters they had fond memories of, not a reboot with a new cast.

Myself, I would be fine with them not making ANY new Ghostbusters films. I didn't see the 2016 film (reviews were not good enough to draw me in), and don't plan to see this one (unless reviews are particularly glowing). But I'm not someone with a real attachment to the franchise. I enjoyed the first movie quite a bit, but didn't feel like it needed any kind of sequel, and recall being disappointed in the sequel it did get (I think I've only watched it once).
