As if we haven't heard enough about an official third entry to the Ghostbusters series, I recently read this from Harold Ramis.
"Yes, Columbia is developing a script for 'GB3' with my 'Year One' writing partners, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Judd Apatow is co-producing 'Year One' and has made several other films for Sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman and I are consulting at this point, and according to Dan [Akroyd], Bill Murray is willing to be involved on some level. He did record his dialogue for the new Ghostbusters video game, as did Danny and I, and Ernie Hudson. The concept is that the old Ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. Not much else to say at this point. Everyone is confident a decent script can be written and I guess we'll take it from there."
Personally, I love a few of Apatow's films (40 Year Old Virgin, Superbad, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Pineapple Express), but I don't know how well he'd handle a GB film, even with a powerful script. The idea of rising actors like Paul Rudd and Seth Rogan wearing the Ghostbusters gear sounds great to me, but that's not even a definite possibility. I just hope the new script holds up to the other two films. What am I saying? I just hope the new script actually gets passed along to production...
What do you guys think about all of this? Something we should just forget about? Or maybe it'll finally work?http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1969144/news#ni0562862
