Default Ghostbusters 3

NBCs OFFICE Writers Are
Scripting GHOSTBUSTERS III!!
Sony has hired Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, Emmy-nominated writer-producers on the Steve Carell version of "The Office," to script a "Ghostbusters" sequel that would reunite Venkman, Stanz, Spengler and Zeddemore.

Harold Ramis, who co-wrote the earlier "Ghostbusters" movies and portrayed mold fetishist Egon Spengler in those comedies, is in post-production on next summer's Jack Black period comedy "Year One," which was directed by Ramis from a screenplay by Ramis, Eisenberg and Stupnitsky.

Ramis directed three season-three episodes of "The Office," namely "A Benihana Christmas," "Safety Training" and "Beach Games."

"Office" episodes scripted by Eisenberg and Stupnitsky include "The Fight," "The Secret," "The Convention," "Women's Appreciation," "Dinner Party" and "Job Fair."

Blatantly untrue.

However, I'll take this news with a grain of salt.

I just noticed this.

This is last gd straw.

If this turns out out to be a remake, blood will be shed.

Wasn't Evolution supposed to be Ghostbusters 3 but the cast demanded too much money so they made it aliens instead of ghosts?

If this can be done right, I'll be the first in line to see it. I'm little miffed that the Ghostbusters game is "delayed" until next year cause it looks freaking awesome.

Still, I'm loving all this Ghostbusters news lately.

Hardly, my friend... While walking up & down the stairs of the parking garage at a currently-under-construction theater, my coworkers & I often exchange the following:

"What floor are we on?"

"Somewhere in the teens, I think."

"Well, let me know when we get to twenty. I'm gonna throw up."

I like the idea of another Ghostbusters, but so far I'm not thrilled with the details. I don't like The Office, so their writers mean nothing to me. If they reboot it I think folks will miss it in droves. And the last I heard Bill Murray wouldn't do another one unless there was a good reason (beyond "making money").

Harold Ramis on Ghostbusters 3
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.

Default Ghostbusters Reboot?

From MTV: Original 'Ghostbusters' Cast Onboard For Reboot, Harold Ramis Says

Two movie trends have converged and brought us a project that had been rumored for years that almost no one thought would actually happen.

Right now, remaking '80s comedies is hot ("Arthur" and "Beverly Hills Cop") and anything supernatural is really hot ("Twilight" and, uh, "Twilight"). To capitalize on these trends or maybe just because it's not fair to deny longtime fans any longer Columbia Pictures announced that a third "Ghostbusters" movie is in the works, two decades after the last one came out.

Earlier this week, Harold Ramis stopped by MTV News to chat about his new Jack Black comedy "The Year One" (in theaters June 19). But we also asked Ramis who co-wrote the first two "Ghostbusters" movies and, of course, starred in them as uptight-but-lovable Dr. Egon Spengler to dish details on the upcoming reboot.

Ramis promised that all the old core players will take part in the updated version, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."

As of now, no decisions have been made about just who those new Ghostbusters will be. But with Judd Apatow signed on as a producer, the Internet has been buzzing with gossip that comedians from his cinematic universe, such as Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen, will join in.

At the moment, Ramis is waiting on a first draft of the script, which is being penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two writer/producers on "The Office," who also wrote "Year One." "Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new 'Ghostbusters,' " Ramis said. "I'm consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and [original director] Ivan Reitman.

"Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office," Ramis joked.

After taking a jab at his old friend, Ramis assured us that Murray is definitely "in," even though the two haven't communicated directly about the project. "I haven't talked to him about it," Ramis said. "I want to talk to him about it eventually. I think we just need a script, because he's the thorniest of the group."

Another open question is who will take over directing duties, since neither Ramis nor Reitman is planning on helming the picture. "I'm sure we're all hoping someone else will do it," the 64-year-old Ramis said. "It's a lot of work!"

While we await casting and directing news, Ramis was able to shoot down gossip about certain stars once thought to be attached to a third "Ghostbusters." "Here's how old the rumors are," Ramis said. "Chris Farley was one of the rumors. It was going to be Chris Farley, Ben Stiller and Chris Rock."

Whichever actors end up portraying the fresh crew of wisecracking ghost fighters will be in for a challenge. "Someone asked Seth [Rogen], and he said, 'What?' " Ramis recalled. "He said, 'That'd have to be one great f---ing script for anyone to touch that.' He's right about that."

I can see Seth Rogan as a Ghostbuster though.

There already is a Ghostbusters 3 in production, namely the video game which is the real reason a movie might actually be made. The studio has seen and heard about the hype for the game and it's pretty damn big. All the actors including Bill Murray who is always the hold out are back doing their own VA, Dan and Ramis are even helping on the game with big roles during it's production. They pretty much said the game was basically the third movie since it's been in development hell for over a decade now movie wise.

Trailer for the game, looks freaking awesome.

If the original gang is involved in some capacity, it might be interesting. "Baby Oscar" would be in his early twenties now, wouldn't he?
