Last week, Kevin Smith joined co-host Marc Bernardin to discuss the hot goss around town and touched on Jason Reitman’s “Ghostbusters” – which, of course, has quickly found its way to the must-see movies of 2020 list.

Smith told Bernardin to he’d actually known about the movie for quite a while – long before we saw the surprise teaser trailer.  The filmmaker promises Reitman has planned something quite exciting – even suggesting we’ll definitely be seeing some familiar faces from the latter’s dad’s original hit.

“He told me some s*** and, to be fair, he did not give it up freely. I had to drag s*** out of him and I had to trick some s*** out of him, but he told me some s*** that had me go like ‘alright, now I just need to stay alive until 2020’ because this movie is definitely worth seeing.”

“Definitely going to be a Ghostbusters movie that makes lots of folks happy,” Smith added.

The movie, co-penned by Reitman and Gil Kenan, is said to be a direct sequel to the original films and is rumoured to include appearances from the original cast.

“I think we may have something here,” Smith explained. “I think it’s gonna be special.”

While the original troupe will be back, the sequel will reportedly fix on a team of teenagers who end up resurrecting the dormant ‘Ghostbusters’ business  – and one of the leads may have already been cast.

According to HN Entertainment, 12-year-old actress Sarah Abbott (“Black Mirror”) has auditioned for the lead role of a 12-year-old “science kid” who struggles with “connecting with others on an emotional level, understanding feelings” and is not aware of “how hurtful her comments can be”.

The website stumbled upon now deleted videos in which Abbott was reading for the part, and in the scene, she was “trying to learn how to tell jokes and be more social.”

It’s suggested that because Abbott, a Canadian, is testing the movie might be eyeing a shoot in Canada – possibly in Vancouver, Montreal or Toronto.

The cast of ’90s gem “Clueless” reunited at C2E2 at McCormick Place Saturday afternoon to share memories of working on the now 25-year-old comedy classic.

While a couple of cast members were noticeably absent (specifically, Stacey Dash, who played Dionne, and the late, wonderful Brittany Murphy, who left us in 2009), the 2,800 seat hall did get to spend quality time with Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer and Donald Faison.

While most of the cast had understandably aged, Rudd seems to be stuck in time.

“I’m 80 years old on the inside.” He pointed to his chest: “In here, pure darkness — and a little moisturizer.”

“They had to knock on Paul’s trailer an hour early because he had to finish sucking the lifeblood out of babies”, said Meyer, who played skateboarder Travis in the film.

While the audience seemed to be gunning for solid word on some sort of sequel, the cast reiterated that the film is  – sadly – going to be rebooted… without them.
