Ghostbusters Video Game Movie

Whether or not you’re going to see the reboot of Ghostbusters, you might be interested in seeing what it would have been like to see Ghostbusters 3 come together. Unfortunately, with Harold Ramis passed away and Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson getting up there in the years, it’s not likely to happen. But thanks to the magic of technology, one fan has given us a possible version of Ghostbusters 3.

You may remember back in 2009, a Ghostbusters video game was release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and a few more systems. It was easily the best Ghostbusters game ever made, not only because it was written by Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman but because it featured the voices of all the original cast members. Now one fan has taken the cinematics and some gameplay footage from the Ghostbusters video game and edited it into a feature-length Ghostbusters 3.

Though Dan Aykroyd recently said that casting was ongoing for Ghostbusters 3, the whole thing doesn’t seem real. In fact, it’s not going to seem real until he, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson put on the jump suits, proton packs and snap a picture. Then I’ll believe Ghostbusters 3 is happening.

Still, anyone who plays video games knows a third Ghostbusters story starring all four original cast members is already out there. Ghostbusters: The Video Game was released last year and was a massive hit. You played as a rookie, learning the ropes from the original Ghostbusters (who all provided their voices to the game), who had to bust a whole bunch of ghosts in their biggest case yet. The game was really short but incredibly fun – from the old school Columbia Pictures logo at the beginning, to the jokes about Walter Peck in the middle, to the epic battle at the end. (If you aren’t going to play it, read the story. It would make a great movie.)

Now, a second Ghostbusters video game will be released in the Spring called Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime. Available on X-Box Live and PlayStation Network, this sequel won’t have any of the original cast members returning and will be over head in stead of third person, but it will have local and online four player multiplayer.
