And Ghostbusters tanked because of why? Because it sucked and it was a blatant attempt to change the entire premise of the first movie, by inserting women into the original roles. So, what's next? Having Ronda Rousey play Rambo? LMAO

Yes, that's one of the reasons why Ghostbusters failed.
They rebooted the original which is a classic as it is and doesn't need remaking.
They should have used it as a platform to launch the new one. They still could have had their all female cast, but it could have and should have been its own thing, not a weak effort to pave over what existed before. Instead, it should have been a new entry in the existing canon. It would have had a much better chance of success then although the weak writing would still likely have doomed it.
