JUST weeks after the cast of the all-female remake of 80s smash Ghostbusters was announced, it has been reported that an all-male remake is also in the works.
Deadline reports that 34-year-old Tatum is the first star to sign up for a role in the new movie.
It is believed Sony Pictures is forming a company called ‘Ghostcorps’ with original principals Ivan Reitman (68) and Dan Aykrod (62) on board.
Drew Pearce, the writer of Iron Man 3 and Mission Impossible 5, is believed to be writing the screenplay.
It was announced last year that an all-female remake is in production, with Bridesmaids stars Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy starring alongside Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon.
It is scheduled for release in July 2016.
The all-male remake will then build off the plot from the female version.
