Joining the free streaming platform’s growing original and exclusive content library, Crackle Plus announced today the US premiere of the documentary Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters, launching on Thursday, June 18th.
Directed and produced by brother and sister team Anthony and Claire Bueno, Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters charts the making of the original 1984 Ghostbusters, featuring exclusive interviews with over 40 members of the cast and crew including director Ivan Reitman and lead cast Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Over 10 years in the making, the documentary also chronicles the achievements made by the visual effects crew in creating the ghosts during the pre-digital age when special effects were still evolving.
Having a passion for "making of’s" and learning the craft of documentary filmmaking, director Anthony Bueno’s intention was to tell the definitive story on how the supernatural comedy film was created.
"The Cleanin’ Up The Town: Remembering Ghostbusters team and I are hugely excited to be premiering our beloved documentary on Crackle," said Bueno. "We truly hope to enthrall and enlighten audiences, fans and filmmakers alike, as we reveal the wonderful personalities, incomparable talent and craftsmanship that went into making a film that captured the hearts of generations; Ghostbusters."
Cleanin’ Up the Town: Remembering Ghostbusters will also be released on Blu-ray in the UK on June 22nd, and includes over 50 minutes of special features including deleted scenes, additional tales, extended interviews and a 20-page "Making of" booklet.
