It’s the 30 year anniversary of one of Nerdom’s cornerstone films, Ghostbusters. There’s a few things going on to celebrate that anniversary including theater screenings, a new LEGO set, and a traveling Ghostbusters art show. We’ve got all the Ghostbusters anniversary information for you here. (more…)
For the past few months the rumors circling around a possible third Ghostbusters movie have been positive. Well positive in the way that would lead you to believe that the movie may actually happen someday. Long gone are the days of alleged script shredding and possible CGI cartoon rebooting, the internet is now in those halcyon days of Director rumors (even if it was a goof, I kinda liked Max Landis’ pitch on twitter) and possible casting choices (thin Jonah Hill is a great choice for Louis Tully Jr.) Last we heard the film was set for a 2015 theatrical release, so official news and huge announcements will be happening soon, right?
Well, former SNL cast memeber/current Canadian vodka pitchman and the long suffering driving force behind Ghostbusters 3, Dan Aykroyd, spoke with Global TV’s The Morning Show this morning (Wednesday) to give a little update on the movie. So what is the current status of a GB threequel?
Now I am going to hold up a card with the answer on the other side. Concentrate… I want you to tell me what you think it is.
Yesterday the Internet was afire with rumors about Max Landis writing the Ghostbusters 3 script. Landis quickly dashed those rumors, but as we all know, the Internet can be a bull terrier when it gets its teeth into something and won’t let go. Landis decided, after multiple requests, to tweet out his pitch for Ghostbusters 3. (more…)
As the quest to bring Ghostbusters 3 into the realm of reality continues, the powers-that-be must decide on who is actually going to be in charge of the damned thing. Whether Bill Murray is taking part or not, the movie still needs a director of some sort. Now, it looks like the folks at Sony/Columbia have set their sights on one man in particular – Ruben Fleischer. (more…)
As a lifelong fan of Ghostbusters I’ve been really, really hesitant about Ghostbusters 3. However, even I got excited when news hit that LEGO Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller were in talks to direct the long-in-development sequel. Now only have Lord and Miller given us The LEGO Movie but also 21 Jump Street, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs and the beloved MTV cult classic Clone High. These geniuses directing Ghostbusters 3? Throw caution to the wind and count me in.
Well, not so fast.
Ghostbusters 3 just lost another one of its people of influence. Deadline reports that Ivan Reitman has stepped away from the project as its director, and will instead produce. It comes as no surprise, but the tragic death of star and friend Harold Ramis was the deciding factor for Reitman. For those unaware, Reitman was one of the key collaboratives to the franchise, having directed the first two Ghostbuster films. Now, you would think with Reitman’s departure, Ramis’ passing and the disinterest of Bill Murray, production would be nullified. Nope, Ghostbusters 3 soldiers on. The search for a new director begins. (more…)
Ghostbusters 3 – coming soon to a theater near you! Or maybe not… And it will have Bill Murray in it! Oh, wait… no go on that one either. It’s a movie, it’s a cartoon, it’s a fkn musical set in outer space! There seems to be very little in the way of concrete truth revolving around this eternally limbo-bound project and most of what we hear seems to be little more than hopeful comments via Dan Aykroyd. But now, Ivan Reitman, director of the original, stepped up to talk about the potential for a third Ghostbusters flick. Check out the video below to hear what he had to say:
Well folks, that’s about as good as it gets. Still trying to make it and still no Murray.
And life goes on…
Thanks to /film for the heads-up.
