Ghostbusters

Every few weeks there’s a new reason Ghostbusters 3 hasn’t happened yet. Some are valid, others are not, but for the past 25 years there’s always something. First it was Bill Murray’s reluctance, then it was Chris Miller and Phil Lord passing on the project, of course the tragic death of Harold Ramis, Ivan Reitman’s departure, script problems, the list goes on and on. At the center of it all is the spokeman for the franchise: co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd.

In a new interview Aykroyd offers up a totally new reason for the delay and it’s one that makes a good amount of sense, considering the climate in Hollywood. Aykroyd said everyone involved in the project isn’t just looking at Ghostbusters 3. They’re looking at a whole Ghostbusters universe: prequels, sequels, TV shows and more in hopes of building a connected, multimedia Ghostbusters franchise like Disney has with Marvel. Read More »

Ghostbusters

Tuesday night’s story about Max Landis potentially doing a polish on Ghostbusters 3 was debunked pretty fast by the screenwriter, but it also lit a fire under his ass. In the hours since since the story broke, was debunked and then deleted, Landis revealed he obviously had been thinking about Ghostbusters 3 a lot. And since he’s not going to actually be writing the screenplay, he decided to lay his ideas out on Twitter.

Landis’ Ghostbusters 3 story isn’t a simple passing of the torch we’d been hearing about for nearly a decade. Instead, it’s a global Ghostbusting affair with franchised teams from all over the globe, one of which goes bad. It’s then up to the main heroes to save the world. It would also explain who Slimer is, work in the mythology and villains of the first film, and more. In short – it sounds really awesome.
