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.

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 »
