Dan Ackroyd

This week on The Bastardcast, recently voted the internet’s top podcast according to Jason’s mom, the fellows discuss Jeremy’s interesting bedroom accessories, Jason’s confusion over why there is no sexy time during the XXX Olympiad, and then in HEADLINES, SHIT. GETS. REAL.

  • Will the next X-Men First Class film screw up the Days of Future Past?
  • Why are David Yates and Steven Moffat playing a public game of “Nuh uh” with the Doctor Who movie?
  • Is Dan Aykroyd trying to coax Bill Murray into signing onto Ghostbusters 3 and will he do the same thing with Peter MacNicol?
  • And…’Deadpool’ has a new creative team, but why did co-creator Rob Liefeld take to the internet in protest?

Once HEADLINES draw to a close, the guys continue their series on dueling timelines, tentativly re-named, “FUCK YOU MY ERA WAS BETTER”. This time on FYMEWB (which just rrrolls off the tongue) Jason is fighting for the honor of elder comics over commercialization and re-boots while Jeremy is more open to the present era, so long as there is a monthly Booster Gold book to light the pathway to his heart.

Then in DIRTY NERDY CONFESSIONS, Jeremy is hiding something from his wife and Jason wants the internet to hate him. All of that and we get a metal bird drunk on this week’s BASTARDCAST!

‘Ghostbuster 3’ Status Update

Everyone has been waiting for Ghostbusters 3 ever since Ghostbusters 2 hit theaters back in 1989. I was only a year old when the second Ghostbusters came out and I’ve still seen it more times than I can remember. The fans have been waiting in the firehouse for years to see another outing of the ecto-1, but they may have to wait a bit longer. The film’s writer Lee Eisenberg and producer Joe Medjuck gave Comic Book Movie a brief status update and it doesn’t look good. They beat Gozer, they beat Vigo but they may not defeat their biggest challenge yet…Bill Murray.

Don’t cross the ego

It’s been an on and off struggle for this movie for years, first it’s going to happen and next thing you hear is it’ll never see the light of day. As of right now Sony Pictures, Harold Ramis, Dan Ackroyd, and Ivan Reitman have agreed and signed up for the very heavily revised Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky screenplay. Almost everyone is ready to pick up those protons pack once more, everyone except for Bill Murray that is. It may be a dick move to hold the entire production back because you can’t agree on a proper script, but with out Bill they can’t go on. Murray is one of the five rights holders to the franchise we know so well and without his approval there is no movie. Its like being that one kid allergic to peanut butter in your class, you ruin it for everybody every year.

Eisenerg had this to say about the current state of Ghostbusters:
