Paul Feig on the Ghostbusters theme song and the different types of ghosts

03.04.2016

As of yesterday, we've finally witnessed our new GHOSTBUSTERS team of Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones in action with the release of the first trailer for Paul Feig's film. As is typical with most GHOSTBUSTERS news since this project was announced, the response was, shall we say, mixed. GHOSTBUSTERS director Paul Feig was on-hand during a special GHOSTBUSTERS event recently (via CinemaBlend) and said that the new film will be carrying on a few GHOSTBUSTERS traditions, such as using the iconic Ray Parker Jr. GHOSTBUSTERS theme song..

You’re definitely going to hear the Ghostbusters song, because you can’t do Ghostbusters without that song. We’re playing not only with the original one, which it would be a crime not to hear that song, but also new versions of it.

Paul Feig has secured the services of Teddy Shapiro, who worked with Feig on SPY, to compose the themes for GHOSTBUSTERS and Feig said that Shaprio is "doing an amazing theme, and we’re really playing with a lot of different themes. I want this to be big, spooky, gothic, cool, and he’s doing an amazing job. I think you’ll be very happy when you hear what we’re doing score-wise." In addition to the GHOSTBUSTERS theme, you obviously need to have some great looking ghosts in a GHOSTBUSTERS flick, and Paul Feig chatted a little about the types of ghosts we have to look forward to.

Being such a science nut, I wanted these ghosts to be what I always considered a ghost to be, which is dead people coming back. So even though we played with that, there are other types of ghosts in it – we have fun with what comes up. I wanted to keep the main ghosts to be basically humanoid, but again you’re gonna get every kind. But especially for the early interactions with the Ghostbusters and the supernatural. It also comes from me, on the set, I didn’t want my actors acting with tennis balls – which they do in some of these CGI movies.

GHOSTBUSTERS will be in theaters on July 15, 2016.

This new Ghostbusters film looks terrible. Utterly, utterly terrible. I can't wait to see this film flop.

You can't do Ghostbusters without that song, and apparently Feig can't do Ghostbusters with that song either.

SJWs are the most unintentionally funny group of people on the planet

So apparently, SJWs are now getting their idiot undies up in a bunch over the black character not being a scientist.

Maybe Paul Feig will call them misogynists or something. Or maybe this has much in common with the purely imaginary black stormtrooper controversy. [link]

Can't make it without the song??

You also can't make a Ghostbusters movie that doesn't look and feel like a Ghostbusters movie...but, lo and behold, Feig managed.

I love how Sony is deleting any negative comment on the youtube page

It's fun to watch people downvote and post negative comments only for those comments to disappear after like 30 minutes. The negative downvotes are double that of the upvotes too. This movie just looks horrible, it's not the female gimmick either, though there are tons of funnier female comedians that deserve to be in this other than the bottom of the barrel SNL rejects they got.

This just doesn't feel right. It's not the cast... and it's not that they're "ripping off" the original. It's the change in tone. The humor doesn't fit what I've come to expect from these films... and some of the ghosts look as if they'd be better suited for one of those stupid live action Scooby Doo movies.

Let me explain....

the typical comments you've been hearing about the Ghostbusters trailer "horrible" "suck" "terrible" let me explain those comments... judging from the trailer, the effects were stolen literally from the original movie... from 30 years ago... none of this is "original" and that is what is so disappointing... I really dont care about the all female cast, that alone doesnt make it "different" ... that makes it a gimmick, that's all it does.
you have effects stolen from the original movie... your

you have effects stolen from the original movie... your effects are NOT original in any way shape or form.... they are just rehashed from thirty years ago....

Mckinnon is a talentless, unfunny asshat. She is not funny and never has been. She has one stupid voice for EVERY character and it's annoying. She is bottom of the barrel in terms of talent they could have acquired for this movie.

Will the new version of this song be sung by a female this time instead of a male? Wow Feig, you have so many great original ideas. Pat yourself on the back.

Sony's mindset for 27 years is not to make a sequel. And then they want a reboot, something new and fresh that starts the franchise again. Something new and fresh that includes the original song though, and original logo, and Ecto-1, and proton packs, and the tagline, and the firehouse, and the uniforms, and Slimer in New York with 3 white scientists and one black everyman. Not a sequel though, that'd be derivative.

"You canít do Ghostbusters without that song"

Nor can you do Ghostbusters without it's humor and it's original team.
