In the past Murray has said he didn’t want to do a third Ghostbusters film. Then he said he did, now it sounds as if he is still not sure.

The Random – Ghostbusters 3, Daredevil reboot, 24 film, Steven Soderbergh’s Contagion, Terminator rights sold, Hanna, 127 Hours, Jane Eyre, The Fields, Thomas Crown Affair 2

Posted by LiveFor on February 9, 2010

- Bill Murray has sort of confirmed the rumour started by Sigourney Weaver a while back, “I’ll come back in Ghostbusters III only if I get to be a ghost,” said Murray in a new interview “I said to them, ‘I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ So now they are going to have me as a ghost in the film.” I just think he is taking the piss.

- Marvel’s Daredevil will get another chance on the big screen as David Scarpa, the man who wrote the recent remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still is writing a new DD script….doesn’t fill me with much hope that the character will get the treatment he deserves. The main reason for the reboot is that Fox’s rights to the character would revert back to Marvel if they didn’t make it.Will Jason Statham be Matt Murdock?

- Jack Bauer may be heading to the big screen for a 24 film. Still early days, but Kiefer Sutherland is up for it and Billy Ray (Shattered Glass, Breach) has pitched the studios about it. Would be set in Europe, but I have to say what’s the point of taking a series that is set over a day and condensing it into a 2 hour action film?

- Steven Soderbergh has another film in the works called Contagion. According to The Playlist, Matt Damon, Kate Winslet, Marion Cotillard and Jude Law have all started negotiations to star in the film, which is written by The Informant! screenwriter Scott Z Burns. It’ll follow multiple plotlines across four continents as a virus begins to spread, and terrifying events follow.

- Sony Pictures and Lionsgate bid on the rights for the Terminator franchise. However, according to Deadline, Halcyon Holding Corp accepted the $29.5 million bid from the debtholder which pushed it into bankruptcy, Santa Barbara-based hedge fund Pacificor. (This is the same Pacificor whom Halcyon accused in a lawsuit of extortion, bribery, and fraud and demanded $30M in damages.)

- Cate Blanchett will join Saoirse Ronan and Eric Bana in Hanna. The Joe Wright-directed Focus Features drama that casts Ronan as a 14-year old assassin.

- Amber Tamblyn will play the female lead opposite James Franco in 127 Hours. The Danny Boyle film about Aron Ralston, the mountain climber who cut off his arm with a dull knife to save his life after being unable to free the limb from under a boulder. Tamblyn will play his girlfriend, with their relationship played out in flashbacks that keep him going.

- Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) has landed the title role of Jane Eyre, the Cary Fukunaga (sin Nombre) directed adaptation of the Charlotte Bronte novel.

- Sam Worthington (Avatar, Clash of the Titans) has signed on to star in Ami Canaan Mann’s very dark thriller The Fields reports Production Weekly. Based on a true story, Worthington would play a homicide detective from Texas investigating a strong of unsolved murders amidst the oil refineries in the state’s south-east with the help of a peer from New York.

- On the progress of the Thomas Crown Affair sequel, actor Pierce Brosnan said this week that “We’ve got the fourth script in and this is the closest we’ve gotten in structure to making sense. It’s very very hard. Now we have the character, it’s not really fleshed out, so we have to work on him, Mr. Crown, and her, Miss Moore, another affair, more art, but it has to be an unexpected surprise”

Ghostbusters 3 – Ivan Reitman is back to direct it

Posted by LiveFor on January 14, 2010

Ivan Reitman directed the first two Ghostbusters films. The first was genius, the second not quite as good. Now, speaking to MTV he confirmed the script was almost done and he would be back to direct.

“They have delivered a draft,”
Reitman said of the script’s progress. “We are working our way through another draft… good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed.”

“I hope to start shooting in this next year,” he said, which ties in with Harold Ramis saying it would be out in 2011.

Asked if he would be returning to direct “Ghostbusters III,” Reitman answered with a simple and unequivocal “Yes.”

Unfortunately Reitman seems to have been on a poor run when it comes to quality of his later films – Twins, Kindergarten Cop, Junior, Dave, My Super Ex-Girlfriend, Evolution and Six Days Seven Nights – All are perfectly servicible and I have a soft spot for Dave and Evolution. However, none of them have matched the brilliance of Ghostbusters and I am just not sure he should be back to direct the third film.

I’m not saying he is a bad director, just that he is just not as dynamic as he should be.

Still it all depends what the script is like I suppose, but it would have been good to see some flesh blood direct the ‘busters next adventure. Maybe his son Jason Reitman (Up In The Air) would have been a better choice.

How do you feel about Ivan Reitman coming back for the third film? Is he the right choice? If not him then who would you have liked to see direct it?

Ghostbusters 3 may start production in 2010

Posted by LiveFor on December 30, 2009

Harold Ramis chatted with Heeb Magazine about among other things, the plans for and prospective timeline of Ghostbusters 3. Here’s what he had to say:

Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future … GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 … Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans.

I like the mention of using the previous Ghostbusters in a Doc Brown kind of way in the new film. I could see that working rather well and could also mean they get in on the action.

Sony has recruited Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg “The Office” writer-producers to work on a new installment of the 1980s film series that starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis.

The original filmmakers, including director Ivan Reitman, and cast are aware of the project and involved in its development. Some original cast members might be involved, but it looks as if it will focus on the next generation of ‘busters. Possibly Peter Venkman’s son, Oscar.

Ghostbusters 3 – Sigourney Weaver has some spoilers about the third film

Posted by LiveFor on December 13, 2009

Below is an interesting interview with Sigourney Weaver. Apparantly she has read the script for the third installment (although I still thought it was being written and nothing had been locked down).

I’m not going to say what she said as, if true, they are major spoilers. Have a watch if you want, but don’t say I didn’t warn you. Of course she does say they may happen so nothing is set in stone.


If you want to discuss what she says about it I’ve set up a place to speak about it in the Forum.

Ghostbusters 3 – Ivan Reitman can direct it if he wants to

Posted by LiveFor on October 9, 2009

Ghostbusters2slimeBustin’ must make film director / producer Ivan Reitman feel good.

Why? Well he directed the first two Ghostbusters film and now Bloody Disgusting “have straight up confirmed, 100%, without a shadow of a doubt” that Ivan father of Jason is in fact attached to direct Ghostbusters 3.

You know what Bloody Disgusting? I am ready to believe you.

However he hasn’t decided whether or not he really wants to direct, yet.

Apparently, the sequel takes place when the paranormal researchers “reopen” their ghost removal service after it has been closed for quite a few years. As previously reported, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver have all confirmed their involvement.

The previous plot was rumoured to have a younger Ghostbusters crew taking over the business. I am not sure if that is still the case, and I would much rather see the old gang back together again for more than just an extended cameo.

As to Ivan Reitman directing the third one I am just not sure. His last film Super Ex-Girlfriend was not so good but Evolution was okay. I personally feel a director with a different set of skills may be better, but what do I know.

I just hope Ramis and Aykroyd can get in shape for the film. No one wants to see a chubby Spengler!

Ghostbusters – Did you know it was actually a film in 1954 starring Bob Hope?

Posted by LiveFor on July 29, 2009

An excellent trailer mash-up. You have to watch it.

What if…Ghostbusters, the movie, was shot in 1954 instead of 1984? Who should be part of the cast? Would they have the same equipment? Who would they battle? Considering Dan Aykroyd’s concept owes a lot to Bob Hope, Abbott and Costello, and Lewis and Martin comedies of the 40s and 50s, it is not that big of a stretch to speculate.

Here’s the recipe for the trailer:

Ghostbusters, The Three Stooges, Scared Stiff, Ghost Breakers, Topper Takes a Trip, The Ghost Busters, Abbott and Costello meet the Invisible Man, Star Trek, Ghosts on the Loose, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Spooks Run Wild, Flubber, Son of Flubber, The Caddy, 100 ans d’histoires de Bibendum

The Random – Bond 23, Inglourious Basterds, Ghostbusters 3, The Jetsons, In Praise of Shadows, Alien, Funhouse,

Posted by LiveFor on June 10, 2009

- UK Newspaper The Guardian speculates that the 23rd James Bond film will feature “the poppy fields and drug barons of Afghanistan.”

- Harvey Weinstein is attempting to get his hands on Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and cut out 40 minutes of it, according to The Wrap.

- According to Harold Ramis through Coming Soon and HorrorMovies.ca, the Ghostbusters 3 is far from complete and no one has actually signed up to it. “I wrote the story for the new movie with them, and Dan and I’ve been consulting. We’re just waiting to see a first draft and where we are…Everyone says they’ll do it, they’ve all said they’ll do it. No one has signed anything yet–we haven’t signed anything either–but there’s the spirit of willingness in the air.”

- Robert Rodriguez tells MTV News that his live-action adaptation of classic sci-fi cartoon The Jetsons could go into production sooner than you think. “I’ve been developing [The Jetsons] for awhile,” Rodriguez says and hopes to start shooting “next year” and confirmed the film will be live-action. Story wise “We’re writing the script right now” says Rodriguez.

- James Franco has signed on to star in the indie drama In Praise of Shadows reports Variety. The drama tells the story of William Vincent (Franco), and recounts his eccentric and curious journey that brought him back to New York City after four years in exile to rescue the woman he loves from a crime syndicate.

- Sources at Fox tell EW that the studio is not interested in greenlighting an Alien prequel unless Ridley Scott himself directs.

- Eli Roth wants to remake Tobe Hooper’s Funhouse. “It should be about the kids getting killed in horrible ways, put in different contraptions in the funhouse and the final girl being strapped into the ride and sent into the tunnels to be confronted by terrifying tableaux of her dead friends,” Roth says. “A smart remake could be so much fun. Kill the kids in fabulous ways and continually reuse the bodies by making them freaks in the freak museum, sew their eyes shut, waxworks… That’s the stuff I want to do in a remake of The Funhouse.”
