CHRIS PRATT & CHANNING TATUM FOR MALE 'GHOSTBUSTERS' SPIN-OFF MOVIE? KRISTOFFER NYHOLM TO DIRECT TOM HARDY'S 'TABOO' 19TH CENTURY EPIC SERIES

ALL MALE 'GHOSTBUSTERS' 
SPIN-OFF TO BE LEAD BY CHRIS PRATT AND CHANNING TATUM  ?
The movie news of the day is that MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: ROGUE NATION writer Drew Pearce has finished the script for a male version of GHOST- BUSTERS spin-off movie which would exist in the same universe as the female centric one with Melissa McCarthy, but this one would have Chris Pratt and Channing Tatum in the lead roles! Unlike the female one which is being directed by Paul Feig, the male GHOST- BUSTERS would be helmed and produced by the Russo brothers (CAPTAIN AMERICA WINTER SOLDIER) and by Ivan Reitman, who did the original 1980's movie. Chris Pratt has JURASIC WORLD and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY sequels to shoot, while Channing Tatum has left X MEN GAMBIT spin-off movie earlier this week.

TOM HARDY'S 'TABOO' EPIC
 SERIES FINDS A DIRECTOR
And in case you almost forgot that Tom Hardy is supposed to star in new historical series TABOO, they are reminding us of it with the news that Kristoffer Nyholm  (THE KILLING) is to direct the first four of the eight episodes of the epic series. BBC and FX are producing TABOO in which Hardy plays James Keziah Delaney, who returns to London in 1813 after 10 years in Africa to discover that he has been left a mysterious legacy by his father. Driven to right the wrongs of the past, Delaney finds himself in a face-off against the East India Company, while playing a dangerous game between two warring nations — Britain and the newborn U.S. Hardy has actually written the story with his father.

    3. she usually does, but I can't say melikes the rest of her team in it .. although the thought of Chris Hunksworth possibly playing their hunky receptionist is very soothing, isn't it?
