When there are multiple Ghostbuster teams, who do you call?

There’s been a lot of news surrounding reboots of the Ghostbusters franchise in recent months, beginning with the announcement that Paul Feig would be making a female-led reboot, and then a different Ghostbusters film with an all-male cast was going to be made, which would expand into a whole Marvel-style cinematic universe. And while Feig’s film, starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, it looks like the all-male version isn’t happening, according to Screenrant.

Reid Carolin – Tatum’s producing partner and screenwriter on both Magic Mike films – was interviewed by Screen Rant’s own Kara Warner as part of the marketing push for the upcoming Tatum-headlined sequel, Magic Mike XXL ... The discussion briefly turned to the Ghostbusters spinoff, to which Carolin said “We’re not doing that anymore”; when asked “Oh, you’re not?” he then clarified: “No I don’t think so, I think it’s too complicated. There’s a lot of things going on with that brand and I just feel like it’s over-saturated.”
