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.

Rocky 7!?

While we’ll unlikely see Creed belting his glove again, Sylvester Stallone says Rocky Balboa isn’t out.

The actor  made the revelation today at the Cannes film festival, where his long career and latest ‘Rambo’ film are under the Croisette’s spotlight.

While ‘Sly’ hints that his participation in the “Creed” franchise might be two and out, the 72-year-old says a seventh “Rocky” film could be on the cards.

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different”.

“It’s like a magician,” he continued. “Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed any more. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work.” he said.

Stallone didn’t say whether it’d be Balboa, who we last saw in 2018’s “Creed II”, training the immigrant.

The actor had intended for 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” to be the character’s swansong but returned to the role when the idea for the “Creed” films were presented to him.

Stallone was at Cannes to attend a a 4K restoration screening of his groundbreaking actioner “First Blood” and promote its fourth sequel “Last Blood”, which sees the long-suffering vet going up against cartels in Mexico.

“He goes out there and bad things happen,” Stallone said. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people are going to get killed.”
