Zombieland: Double Tap is in theaters now, bringing back Woody Harrelson, Jessie Eisenberg, Emma Stone and Abigail Breslin for more zombie apocalypse action. It’s been 10 years since the original movie hit theaters, but writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (the duo behind the Deadpool franchise) were hired almost immediately to write the sequel. Since it took a decade to finally get this movie finished, the script went through plenty of changes as time passed, and one of those changes resulted in nixing a hilarious but tragic scene that would have given us a Ghostbusters reunion.
Beware, in order to discuss this scene in question, we’re providing a spoiler alert for a certain cameo made in the sequel. But if you saw the most recent theatrical trailer for Zombieland: Double Tap, then you already know what we’re talking about. Either way, you’ve been warned. Read More »

For a long time, Bill Murray didn’t really want anything to do with Ghostbusters 3. However, director Paul Feig was fortunate enough to secure his involvement (along with most of the rest of the original cast) for a cameo in Ghostbusters: Answer the Call. And it sounds like if Jason Reitman wants Bill Murray to appear in the developing Ghostbusters sequel slated for 2020, all he has to do is ask. Read More »

Long before the Ghostbusters reboot tore the internet apart and made a bunch of grown men throw fits like someone popped their birthday balloon, there was a Ghostbusters sequel that was long in development that was hoping to reunite Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson for one more paranormal adventure.

However, Dan Akyroyd seems to have renewed faith that Ghostbusters 3 will happen. Read More »
