Uh oh, looks like Dan Aykroyd has finally lost what little sense he has left. He’s now attacking Paul Feig for overspending on the Ghostbusters reboot, which he believes is the main factor for the lack of a sequel.
Speaking on Sunday Brunch, Aykroyd had this to say:
“The girls are great in it. Kate McKinnon, Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig – what a wonderful, wonderful players they are – and Leslie Jones. I was really happy with the movie, but it cost too much. And Sony does not like to lose money. It made a lot of money around the world but just cost too much, making it economically not feasible to do another one. So that’s too bad – the director, he spent too much on it. He didn’t shoot scenes we suggested to him and several scenes that were going to be needed and he said “nah, we don’t need them”. Then we tested the movie and they needed them and he had to go back. About $30 to $40 million in reshoots. So he will not be back on the Sony lot any time soon.”
My take? Overspending didn’t kill the sequel. An all-cast of angry ugly, unfunny fat loser bimbos killed the sequel. You see, MEN primarily go to theaters, and they take the wife, kids, girlfriend, et cetera with them. Women much more rarely go by themselves. I’ve hardly seen it, and I once worked in a theater, way back when. It’s just not happening. So when you make a movie that trashes men, that takes feminism to a hateful new level, you fuck yourself, because men may be cucks these days, but they’re not so stupid as to walk into the cinematic equivalent of the Nazi gas chambers without putting up a fight.
