We all have seen that Paul Feig hasn’t been overly happy with some of the ‘Ghostbusters‘ leaks and now in a recent interview he opens up to how he actually feels about them. You would think by getting ahead of the media on Sigourney Weaver joining the cast as well as how he phrased it, that the leaks were really getting to him.
Turns out that isn’t entirely true.
While he isn’t thrilled about the leaks there has only been one that really annoyed him so far:
“The only one that got me really bummed out was the one of Chris Hemsworth — just because that was on a studio way out in the middle of nowhere. It was a private shoot. Somebody had that, like, two hours after we shot it. I was like, ‘Oh my god.’ That was somebody who came through this field and was illegally shooting over our fence. That bummed me out because you just don’t want stuff flying everywhere. I’m being very generous giving people looks and peeks. Let me hang onto some of this. The bummer is it goes everywhere, and I don’t think the news outlets realize it wasn’t legally gotten. We’re still filmmakers who want to surprise you with stuff.”
Feig clearly hopes to throw some surprises our way but he is at least happy that there is enough interest in his version of ‘Ghostbusters’ that the media is jumping on each piece of news that sneaks out. Of course that could be a bit of damage control after going off on Twitter recently.
With how much flack he has gotten, I’m not sure anyone can really blame him. Directors are, after all, only human. While major changes were made from the original ‘Ghostbusters’ this doesn’t appear to be the instant train wreck that ‘Fantastic Four’ had been ahead of time and until we get a trailer it is hard to say as to the exact direction or even tone of of the film.
