Full of heart, she goes straight to the first two movies, she has the DNA, the heart and the soul. We read it and we think this is the moment and it is the right way to do it”. On your side, Bill Murray added: “Jason is the son of the original director Ivan Reitman… And has his own vision, he grew up as a son of the Ghostbusters in some way. He had something that he thought would work as a good story, and we all agreed that it would.”.
During the Interview, Fallon he asked Aykroyd on the origin of Ghostbusters, to which he replies that his great-great-grandfather in 1920 began an investigation into spiritualism. “If we used all the research that was done we could have something there. No one knew what an ectoplasm was before the Ghostbusters movie … now millions of people know. All over the country there are ghost hunting societies with the equipment, there are shows about the paranormal and the supernatural. This is all from my great-great-grandfather’s work and the movie we madeAykroyd added.
When talking about the new movie, they commented that there are new creatures, a lot of fun, the Ecto does things that had not been seen before and they are in the costume of the Ghostbusters. “I never thought I’d put it on again, until I got there and realized it was really happening”, He expressed Enrie Hudson, and I add: “when I put on the suit and saw Bill, Dan and Sigourney, it was like spiritual, I was almost crying, it was great”. Secondly, Murray said: “Waves of memory came (from original movies) and I thought this is horrible, they were long days and we had to carry a heavy vacuum cleaner on our back. Now it is not as heavy as the original, but we are weaker, so it is the same”.
Secondly, in the program Seth Meyers, when asked when they realized that the original film was a great success, Hudson answered: “I think it was 5 or 10 years later, the fans kept putting on the suits, transforming the cars into the Ecto, showing up at my house … I realized this was very different”.
