Will Ghostbusters 3 Begin Shooting This Summer? Harold Ramis Says Yes.

“Ghostbusters 3″ rumors are a dime a dozen these days. One day Bill Murray’s going to play a ghost, the next he’s not. It’s ridiculous, and frequently irritating. So when I stumbled across this extremely questionable article floating around Heeb Magazine, I made sure to keep my Captain Skeptical Cape securely fastened to my person. Honestly, separating the truth from the fiction is more fun than the idea of another sequel; there’s no way the film can live up to the outrageous hype that’s currently surrounding it, especially when goofy stories come and go at the drop of a hat. Is there any validity to the quote below? I guess we’ll know in a few days time. Until then, it’s kind of fun to speculate, isn’t it? Please don’t answer that.

Here’s the quote straight from the mouth of Ramis:

Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011

My advice: Don’t hold your breath.



About Todd Rigney

Todd was raised on a steady diet of Hollywood blockbusters, late-night Cinemax programming, and USA’s “Up All Night,” which may explain why his taste in movies is more than a little questionable. When he isn’t providing news and reviews for Beyond Hollywood, he can be found lounging lazily on his couch, perched in front of his television, or dwelling in places where direct sunlight can be easily avoided. He's happily married, in his 30's, and totally badass. If you'd like to reach Todd, you can follow him on Twitter or send him email/scoops to todd (at) beyondhollywood.com.

    If this movie is going to be about passing on the torch and making the originals the ringmasters, there are a few people i would like to see in the role.

    New Ghostbusters:
    Seth Rogen
    Justin Long
    Jonathan Tucker – 100 girls/Black Donnellys
    Donald Glover – Bro Rape, Mystery Team, and now the Community

    I think that would be quite swell.
    ALSO – Happy New Year to the site and the members. Hopefully you guys are just as hungover as I am lol. Rock on~

    Oh and if you happen across this Dedpool – My New Years Resolution is to write a Flash Script that will make DC greenlight the film again. You would probably be a big help lol. I know its a big goal, but its a big thing for me to work on something that someone else created. Maybe the whole site can help.
    Another New Years Resolution is to make money cuz we all need more of that. Well, maybe not need, but would be much appreciated.

    At this point they don’t need the old cast i’m sick of there shit anyways retire and allow the new guys to make millions of dollars that this film WILL bring in. I know eveyone thinks that we need Bill and Dan to be there, but really they should not even have a cameo after all these years of abuse they throw at the film that launched there careers.
