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.

Snoop Dogg’s ‘Hood Of Horror’, 2006 – Movie scnizzle review-izzle – 31 Days of Horror

Posted by LiveFor on October 21, 2009

Director: Stacy Title
Starring: Snoop Dogg, Ernie Hudson, Danny Trejo, Pooch Hall, Anson Mount, Jason Alexander, Billy Dee Williams
Running Time: 84 minutes
Score: 8.25 / 10

This review by Paul –all part of my 31 Days of Horror.

Send me your horror film reviews.

You’ll have to bear with me here readers, this is a hidden gem! I found it on Halloween night after a nights graft in the pub. I came home, feet throbbing, mind far too sober for a friday night, and slammed on the magic Virgin TV box-thingy in the corner with lots of flashing lights.

‘Lets check out the 99p offers shall we?’ I suggested to myself, had a vote, and won.

This was the one that drew my eye instantly. I love Snoop, dont get me wrong, but I’ve never really given him much wieght as an actor (see Mr. Bones or Dr. Bones, it’s so shit I can’t remember the title). I paid my money, made me smoke, cracked the stella and settled down.

It was ace.

The film opens with a fantastic anime sequence, lasting about 10 mins if memory serves me right (regular readers will know that my eyes kinda go quite frequently). It was really top quality and so unexpected I couldnt take my eyes off the screen. Jaw dropping stuff, even Manga Snoop looked a nice balance of cool/evil/unspoken threatening. Then the film moved into the next phase, live action filming, but the film has an old style quality to it. The three interlinking ‘short scary stories from The Hood’ have the look of the 70’s Twilight Zone:The Movie. Bright jumpers, off-colour orange everywhere, ya know?

To be honest, I was outta phase when the live action was on, like stepping through the Time Tunnel, but each story was interspersed with more anime, a story within a story (I see plans within plans). Wish I could tell you more, but I can’t. Take my word for it, it was 99p and it really kicked arse. Seek it out.

It was a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there…

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!

UPDATED: Dan Aykroyd talks Ghostbusters 3

Posted by LiveFor on May 20, 2009

The Los Angeles Times recently caught up with Dan Aykroyd who confirmed that Ghostbusters 3 is in development at Columbia Pictures and may start filming in the winter:

Aykroyd said Sigourney Weaver is on board now, as are the original squad ofectoplasmic specialists — Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. Murray’s presence was the pivot point in making a third film happen.

“We could be in production by winter.”

The script is by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, the writing team behind the upcoming Jack Black/Michael Cera movie Year One (directed by Ramis), and Aykroyd is enthused about its premise of a new generation of Ghostbusters taking over the duties of the aging team.

Aykroyd said he wishes Ivan Reitman would return to direct the third film in the
series but that he’s “too busy as a mega-producer” to take it on; his second
choice is Ramis, who, of course, co-wrote the first two Ghostbusters films with
Aykroyd and has numerous directing credits, most notably Groundhog Day and
Analyze This. “He has a lot of things going on, but it would be wonderful to see
him do it.”

The details of story are still in play, but Aykroyd said he’s hoping for a five-member “new generation” team with several female members. “I’d like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let’s revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family but let’s pass it on to a new generation.”

He then mentions Alyssa Milano (who provided a voice for the upcoming video game) and Eliza Dushku as potential options. Nothing concrete about those two, but I could see Dusku as a Ghostbuster.

UPDATE: The two actresses Dan mentions quickly got onto this and had this mini-conversation on Twitter.

Alyssa Milano: Can’t speak for @ElizaPatricia (Hi, pretty lady)but this is the first I’m hearing of Ghostbusters 3. Did the VO in the game tho.

Eliza Dushku: Ghost-rumor-buster in a big way @Alyssa_milano (hey girlene) it’s nuthin’ I know of.

How do you feel about the news? Who would you want to see as a female Ghostbuster?

Lonely Street – Trailer for a film starring Elvis and a character called Bubbha…haven’t we heard this one before?

Posted by LiveFor on April 28, 2009

Nope, this isn’t Bubba Ho-Tep. This is something a little different.

Bubba may not be Albuquerque’s most successful private detective, operating from a seedy Motor Inn on Route 66 amid hookers and dope dealers, but when a man named J.G hires him as a bodyguard to protect a visiting celebrity from an overzealous fan, Bubba sees it as easy money. Easy until the celebrity seems to be the living Elvis – determined to keep a low profile – and the fan turns out to be a sleazy tabloid reporter – determined to break the story that the King is still alive. Bubba’s predicament grows darker when the reporter winds up dead in a motel room, and Bubba becomes the number one suspect after the King and J.G. skip town.

Directed by Peter Ettinger.

Starring Ernie Hudson, Jay Mohr, Joe Mantegna and Robert Patrick

Lonely Street is due out on

It’s due out in June 2009. Will you be picking it up?

Original cast will be in Ghostbusters 3 for a little bit

Posted by LiveFor on September 8, 2008

Harold Ramis is the one who confirms that the original cast will be back merely to mentor the new Ghostbusters team, and he does so in an email to The Chicago Tribune through Latino Review. In it he says:

“yes, Columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my Year One writing partners, Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Judd Apatow is co-producing Year One and has made several other films for Sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman and I are consulting at this point, and according to Dan, Bill Murray is willing to be involved on some level. He did record his dialogue for the new Ghostbusters video game, as did Danny and I, and Ernie Hudson. The concept is that the old Ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity.”

Great news that they will be in the movie at least for a little bit of it. Bill Murray back in the slime! Would be great if they could be in it for a big chunk of the movie but I doubt they will be, plus they’d need a super wide angle to capture the ever expanding Ramis and Ackroyd!
