While I wasn’t a fan of the “Ghostheads” documentary, which is now on Netflix, I’m hoping that focusing on the film itself will be more entertaining. With such a rich history behind the franchise, that film’s focus was on super fans, while someone else is taking a stab at the Ghostbusters‘ production with the forthcoming doc, “Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters“.
Eight years in the making and with over seventy cast and crew interviews ‘Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters’ is the definitive documentary that charts how ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Ghostbusters 2’ came to fruition and how these films were made by the people that made them.
Interviews include actors in the film Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver Annie Potts, David Margulies, William Atherton, Kurt Fuller and Jason Reitman, Director Ivan Reitman, Producer Michael C. Gross, Visual Effects crew including Richard Edlund, Terry Windell, Dennis Muren and Steve Johnson, musicians Ray Parker Jr and The Bus Boys.
In this extended cut we want audiences to experience a little more of what they can expect from this feature length documentary.
They’ve shared footage from their doc in this new trailer and are hoping to garner some more funds, which you can help provide right here.
I’d love to hear inside stories from the people behind the two films, as well be gifted with never-before-seen shots from the set or behind-the-scenes, especially of how the ghosts per created. There’s so much we don’t know about Ghostbusters and it’s going to take a resilient filmmaker to get it on screen for all of us to enjoy.
