AFTER YEARS AND YEARS IN DEVELOPMENT HELL, GHOSTBUSTERS 3 IS HAPPENING AT LAST!
Who ya gonna call? GHOSTBUSTERS! I AIN’T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS, THANKS TO THE GHOST BUSTING GHOSTBUSTERS, and fans are in for a treat! WHY, YOU ASK, ARE THEY IN FOR A TREAT? Well, it has been finally confirmed that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is being made and that many of the original cast members are coming back! YOU DON’T BELIEVE ME? It is the truth, my friends! IVAN REITMAN, the director of the first two films, confirmed that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is finally in the works, and this is not a rumor, by the way. There have been rumors circulating in cyberspace for years about a GHOSTBUSTER 3 being made, but these rumors were all false. However, this is the real deal, my friends! Unfortunately, HAROLD RAMIS, the guy who played EGON SPENGLER, passed away recently, so obviously he won’t be back. But there is a strong possibility that BILL MURRAY, who played PETER VENKMAN in the movies, will be back, as well as DAN AKROYD, who played the character RAY STANTZ. A whole new cast of characters will be introduced, according to REITMAN, in the new film, and this movie will not be a REBOOT of the movie franchise. The events of the new film will be a continuation of the events of the first two movies, and some of the old characters will return together with a host of younger actors. Bringing in new blood to project will hopefully revitalize the series for a new generation of moviegoers while luring the older fans as well. Also, REITMAN revealed that the new film will not be called GHOSTBUSTERS 3. Judging from his recent comments, the new film will be using a lot of CGI effects and will most likely be in filmed in spectacular and eye-popping 3D. Fans of old-school special effects like myself are a bit disappointed, but we, the fans, are eternally grateful that a third installment of such a beloved movie series is being finally made! A possible title for the new film could be “GHOSTBUSTERS: TOTAL CONTAINMENT,” because the subtitle “TOTAL CONTAINMENT” comes from the jargon used in the popular IGN comics. So the new title will likely contain a subtitle based on established GHOSTBUSTERS lingo. IVAN REITMAN will not be directing this movie; instead, he will be one of the producers of the new movie project. THE ORIGINAL CHARACTERS WILL BE PLAYING A MINOR ROLE IN THIS FILM. There are doubts as to how SONY will handle the fact that HAROLD RAMIS is no longer with us, and concerns have been expressed by REITMAN about BILL MURRAY’S reluctance to be involved in this project. HOW WILL SONY DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM OF NOT HAVING TWO ESSENTIAL CHARACTERS IN THIS SEQUEL? Only time will tell if BILL MURRAY will, at the last minute, decide to be involved with the movie after all. REITMAN stated that BILL MURRAY had the tendency to wait until the last minute before confirming involvement in a movie project. REITMAN says that the production of the film will start in the Fall of 2014, but due to unforeseen obstacles and problems, the film project may begin during the early part of 2015. WELL, MY FRIENDS, WHO YA GONNA CALL? GHOSTBUSTERS! LIKE I SAID BEFORE: I AIN’T AFRAID OF NO GHOSTS!
