2014 marked the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters and we’ve been celebrating like Gozer in New York City. The original 1984 film was rereleased, and there were traveling art shows, tons of new merchandise and events. For a while, almost every single week it seemed like something Ghostbusters was going on. That culminated last month as director Paul Feig revealed he was going to make a new Ghostbusters movie, something fans have been waiting on for 25 years.
Or maybe that wasn’t the culmination. Maybe the culmination is actually the cover of this week’s Enteratinment Weekly, which reunites four living stars of the film: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver. Harold Ramis passed away earlier this year, and there’s no appearance from Rick Moranis. But Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman do take part. Below, check out the Ghostbusters reunion photo.
UPDATE: We’ve added some video too. Read More »

For a while now, the one constant about the third Ghostbusters has been Bill Murray‘s complete lack of interest. But now, as Paul Feig cues up his all-female reboot, it seems Murray is ever so slightly opening himself up to the possibility again.

The 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters seemingly reached its climax last week when a new film was finally announced. And while the news was not what most expected to hear, the timing couldn’t have been better. All year, fans had been celebrating the 1984 comedy classic with art shows, events, screenings, donuts and more. A new movie, reboot or not, seemed like perfect cherry on top.
Now it looks like we’re putting some marshmallow on top of that cherry. A brand new Stay Puft Ghostbusters vinyl has been revealed that not only looks, but also smells like marshmallows. The deluxe double-12″ single set also includes some cool lenticular images, two songs and more. The limited edition release is now available for pre-order. Read more below. Read More »

Bill Murray has already come out in favor of the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, but his former co-star Ernie Hudson isn’t quite so convinced. In fact, he thinks it’s “wrong” and that the fans won’t want it. But hey, on the bright side, he’s not completely ruling out the possibility that women Ghostbusters could be funny or “at least sexy.”
Hit the jump for the Ernie Hudson female Ghostbusters comments.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Paul Feig (Freaks & Geeks, Bridesmaids) is really making the new Ghostbusters film, and it won’t be a sequel featuring the classic cast. Instead, he’s got the idea to reboot the story entirely, focusing on a new and likely all-female team of Ghostbusters. The Heat screenwriter Katie Dippold is co-writing, and they’re already at work putting together a script.
There are still many questions about this new Paul Feig Ghostbusters. (Not least is “what will it be called?” That isn’t answered, but given the reboot angle, Ghostbusters III doesn’t seem appropriate.) The director has given a big interview in which he at least addresses many of those questions, even when he can’t give outright answers. One thing that should be of interest is that Feig really emphasizes the idea of making something that is scary as much as it is funny. Read More »
The path to the new Ghostbusters movie has been long and full of detours. Long planned as Ghostbusters 3, with the original team meant to return in some fashion, the sequel is now more like a reboot.
Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat among others, came on to direct earlier this year. Feig’s plan is to have a female team of Ghostbusters band together to, well, do the same thing that the previous team did. Now Feig has turned to someone he has successfully worked with in the past. The Heat screenwriter Katie Dippold will write the new Ghostbusters movie with Feig.

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 »
