Jason Reitman Addresses Ghostbusters Sequel Backlash /Film

Reitman also added that he "consider [s] myself the first Ghostbusters fan" who "want [s] to make a movie for my fellow Ghostbusters fan".

Reitman would elaborate as reported by The Daily Wire, "We went back and found the original physical vinyl letters that they used to create the Ghostbusters poster in 1984, [and] re-scanned them, then our titles guys reprinted them and we filmed the titles".

But there was more than a little bitterness online yesterday in response to a certain comment that Jason Reitman made about his new Ghostbusters project. This despicable sect of Ghostbusters fans wouldn't even give Paul Feig a chance to prove that he and Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones could make Ghostbusters their own. Of course, this comment was immediately taken as a criticism of Paul Feig's 2016 Ghostbusters reboot, which featured four women in the lead roles and caused toxic fanboys around the world to lose their collective minds.

Director Jason Reitman recently announced that he would be following in his father Ivan Reitman's footsteps by directing a Ghostbusters sequel that would take place decades after the original movies in the franchise. "They expanded the universe and made an incredible movie!" After all, the 2016 film came under enormous fire from the darkest corners of the internet for "ruining" the childhood of several male Ghostbusters fans, and this return to the ways of the original franchise felt like pandering to that toxic base.

When it comes to his daughter's criminal case, Ren simply said, "we'll let the courts settle it". And we won't install backdoors either", he said.

Feig himself came to Reitman's defense, writing, "Jason was a supporter of mine at a time when I couldn't get movies made". I can't wait to see his take on the Ghostbusters universe. "Your fan, Paul", Feig tweeted. Like f**k us. We didn't count. He has always been a true gentleman to me and a supporter of Ghostbusters: "Answer the Call", he wrote. (Trump voice)"Gonna redo ghostbusteeeeers, better with men, will be huge". Big love and respect to you, Jason.

Reitman's movie doesn't need to hand anything back to fans because nothing was taken from them, and it is exhausting that this narrative is still being peddled.

"If they make this new one with all men and it does well, which it will, it might feel that 'boys are better.' It makes my heart drop", she continued.
