Who ya gonna call? No, se­ri­ously, who ya gonna call? The Ghost­busters brand ap­pears to be swelling to the size of a ma­raud­ing Stay Puft man. We al­ready know about Paul Feig’s fe­male- driven re­boot, ar­riv­ing in the sum­mer of 2016. Now comes word of an­other fran­chise ex­ten­sion, this one di­rected by Cap­tain Amer­ica: The Win­ter Sol­dier’s An­thony and Joe

Russo and tipped to star Chan­ning Ta­tum and Chris Pratt ( pos­si­bly on the as­sump­tion that ev­ery role in Hol­ly­wood is linked to Chris Pratt on a fun­da­men­tal quan­tum level). But wait! There’s more! Th­ese movies would be fol­lowed by a third film, team­ing both casts. And then! A fourth film! That one would be a pre­quel, nat­u­rally. The im­mi­nent Ghost­bus­ter­i­sa­tion of re­al­ity is all down to Sony form­ing Ghost­corps, a new pro­duc­tion com­pany run by orig­i­nal cre­atives Ivan Reit­man and

Dan Aykroyd with the aim of cre­at­ing an an­nual se­ries of films. Trust us: it’s time to buy shares in pro­ton packs.
