Conflict Explained: What Happened Between Paul Feig And Dan Aykroyd?

Let’s find out ‘What Happened Between Paul Feig And Dan Aykroyd?’ During the 2017 filming of “Ghost Busters,” Paul Feig and Dan Aykroyd experienced various difficulties. Do they get along? Let’s find out.

Dan Aykroyd holds Ghostbusters director Paul Feig accountable for Sony rejecting a follow-up to the 2016 comedy.

The actor was a guest this past weekend on Britain’s Sunday Brunch. He made an appearance in the original Ghostbusters and had a cameo in Feig’s reboot.

He praised the all-female ensemble of the movie before going on to explain why he thinks Feig has virtually eliminated the possibility of a sequel.

Director Paul Feig received criticism from co-star and co-writer of the previous two Ghostbusters movies, Dan Aykroyd, for overspending on the follow-up last summer.

The Ghostbusters reboot is seen as a disaster given that film is reported to have lost $70 million at the box office.

Unfortunately, by the time Paul Feig’s all-female Ghostbusters revival finally arrived in theaters last summer, the obnoxious cultural uproar had eclipsed everything.

Even before the movie’s box office failure, despite mostly positive reviews, the situation’s overall tone deteriorated due to whiny man-children complaining that the movie wrecked their childhoods and hot takes criticizing these non-fans for their covertly sexist remarks.

In every interview, the cast and writers of the film must address the controversy. And there is still a lot of hostility toward the remake even a year later.

Dan Aykroyd, who co-wrote and acted in the original and second Ghostbusters movies, slammed director Paul Feig over the weekend for going over budget and thwarting any potential follow-ups to the series.

In an interview on the British chat show Sunday Brunch, Aykroyd allegedly said that “he spent too much on it” and “he didn’t shoot bits we proposed to him.”

When asked about numerous scenarios that might be necessary, he answered, “No, we don’t need them.”

Then, once we watched the movie, they realized they needed them, so he had to go back, which resulted in an additional $30 to $40 million in production costs.

Ghostbusters is thought to have lost roughly $70 million despite grossing $229 million worldwide against a $144 million production budget since so much money was spent on marketing (which is not factored into the production budget).

“[Feig] won’t return to the Sony lot anytime soon,” said Aykroyd. Making another would not be economically viable because it cost too much yet made a lot of money globally.

This is strange because Aykroyd is well known for being an ardent fan of Feig’s Ghostbusters.

It stars Bill Murray, and the cast delivers superb, honest performances. In comparison to the first two movies, it also includes more laughs and scares.

Aykroyd made a Facebook post around the time the movie came out last year. You are only as good as your most recent success, and that was before the money started rolling in from the box office.
