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.
