This week on the Crossrip: news, updates, and a look back at the animated Extreme Ghostbusters on its 18th birthday! First up, a quick update on "King of the Ghostbusters" Peter Mosen, Troy and Chris dance around some GB16 casting spoilers (but don't spoil them), Theodore Shapiro might be scoring Feig's new film (and what does that mean for Henry Jackman? Or Hugh Jackman for that matter?), Yahoo has a great interview with Paul Feig on spoilers, and NYCC promises Diamond Select Reveals and a scavenger hunt for Ghostbusters: The Ultimate Visual History. After the news, stick around for discussion on Extreme Ghostbusters, where were Chris and Troy when it first aired? How did the internet play into its release? What went wrong with the show's ratings? And why hasn't it been released on a digital home video format? All that and more in another jam-packed Crossrip!
A ll'l news and then a Proton Charging archival interview with the one and only Don Shay, author of Making Ghostbusters! Here's what's on tap for this week's news: sending some well-wishes to "King of the Ghostbusters" Peter Mosen, a spoiler alert about the last day of production that we somehow avoided last week and now is common knowledge, at the same time production was out in NYC a familiar car paid a visit to the opposite coast at Mattel in El Segundo, CA. Then a little bit on IDW's Ghostbusters Get Real #4 and a tease about its trade paperback from Dapper Dan Shoening. And then the main event: Don Shay, one of the founding members of Cinefex Magazine and the author of Making Ghostbusters talking about the production of the original film in the context of its 30th Anniversary!
