HOLY SHIZ. This would be like THE BEST MOVIE EVER!
Well, in addition to the all female-lead Ghostbusters film that's hopefully coming.
According to some of the newest leaked emails from Sony, Channing Tatum and Chris Pratt are trying to head a Ghostbusters film spinoff with the studio!

Say WHAAAAAAT! How f*cking awesome would THAT be?!
The exchange of emails are between Channing, Sony head Amy Pascal, and Hannah Mingella (co-president of production at Columbia Pictures), show Channing trying to convince them how successful the films would be.
In the initial email, he said:
"Let us show the world The DarkSide and let us fight it with all the glory and epicness of a HUGE BATMAN BEGINS MOVIE. I know we can make this a huge franchise. Fun adventure craziness. COME OONNNN!!!"
LOL! Well, at least Channing is super into the idea!
In addition to Chris and Channing, the Russo Brothers (who were behind Captain America: The Winter Soldier) want to produce the film, which got just about EVERYONE's attention.
The next day, Mingella sent a much longer email to Pascal about the film.
"So… in a curious turn of events - the Russos and Channing want to develop Ghostbusters as a vehicle for Channing and Chris Pratt to do together. The Russos, Channing and Reid have been brainstorming ideas and want to create a whole new mythology that would support multiple movies (the way that [Christopher] Nolan reinvented Batman).
To be clear - the Russos want to produce (not direct) and while Channing and Chris are looking for a movie to do together they haven't mentioned this to him yet because they weren't sure how we'd react.
They want to make it simultaneously super scary while also super funny. They love the idea that they are mortal heroes who are believers in the paranormal and the only people who can defend mankind from a paranormal threat. I know we're mid negotiations with Paul [Feig].
I'm not sure whether we'd ever develop two different versions simultaneously. Joe Russo is open to the idea that both movies could be developed in partnership so they compliment one another within the same Ghostbusters universe.
Apparently the Russos are very close to Paul and Joe suggested Paul could be attached to direct both. Personally I think it's possible for the female version to co-exist with this other version so maybe they're not mutually exclusive."
HOLY SHIZ. THIS SOUNDS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
It turns out we're not the only ones who think so, because reportedly all the Sony executives replied with extreme interest and Amy Pascal simply wrote "fuckkk."
What do YOU think of a Ghostbusters film like this?! Do YOU wanna see it??
