"Ghostbusters" (2016) To Reveal The Origin Of Slimer! (Spoilers Ahead)

The Boston Herald is reporting the exciting Ghostbusters news that the upcoming Ghostbusters movie will explore the back story of everybody's favourite ghoul, Slimer! But don't say I told you. Because it's supposed to be a secret!


Please note that this post contains spoilers about the upcoming Ghostbusters movie that you may wish to avoid.

In the reboot, Slimer will appear during the Ghostbusters' first official gig, reports The Boston Herald. The 'busters - Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones - are called to Rockefeller Center to dispense with the ghost of a fat Mafia guy. Nuclear engineer, munitions expert and proton wrangler Jillian Hotlzmann (McKinnon) - the Egon in this version - tests out her new Proton Pack on the ghost and shoots off his arms, legs and torso, leaving only a disembodied head. Voila, Slimer!

The head gets away, but videos of their battle with the ghost go viral. Unfortunately, everyone thinks it's a joke and the evening news refers to the gals as "Ghostbusters."

Michael K. Williams (The Wire, Boardwalk Empire), who plays an FBI agent working with the mayor of New York, says he has a scene with Slimer.

"I'm not going to lie, working with Melissa, and Kristen, and Kate, was really dope," he told Entertainment Weekly. "But I got to work with Slimer, dude. Like Slimer!!! ... I'm a huge Ghostbusters fan and it was a dream come true."

Now you may recall that in November, Feig tweeted that he had to "unconfirm" a rumor that Slimer would be in the reboot. Or maybe he was just unconfirming a report on who was cast as the Slime-inator.

Either way, it became pretty obvious the green guy would return when Hi-C revived its Ecto Cooler with Slimer on the box and Hostess came out with the slime green Twinkies. How could the flick not revive its No. 1 product spinoff?
