Sequels are awesome, plain and simple. Returning to familiar characters and worlds we love is like covering yourself with a warm blanket, although when a sequel is bad it can be like a blanket covered in potato bugs and lice. Studios love sequels because seven times out of ten they open huge, no matter how good they are. Get More »
It's been almost 30 years — which is roughly 100 by Hollywood standards — since the original "Ghostbusters" graced the silver screen (and 23 years since "Ghostbusters 2"), but the powers-that-be might finally be gearing up the re-boot.
After what seems like ages of endless chatter, the wheels seem to be in motion to bring everyone's favorite ghost-fighting parapsychology professors to a new generation.
The only catch? Bill Murray won't be in it. We're gonna give you a minute to take that in. Get More »
It's been almost a quarter-century since "Ghostbusters 2" reminded us all who to call in case a gooey marshmallow man took over the streets of New York City, and for half of that time, funnyman Dan Aykroyd has been trying to get the overall-clad gang back together.
The major hold-out for "Ghostbusters III," Aykroyd has now confirmed, is Bill Murray.
Aykroyd reportedly penned a draft for "G3" in 1999 and later oversaw a re-write which was met with positive response by the studio and most of the cast, except for Bill Murray. Get More »
To paraphrase one of our favorite movies, "If somebody asks if you're making 'Ghostbusters 3' you say 'YES'!"
He confirmed that bringing Bill Murray back might be a lost cause, but denied the rumor that the beloved actor sent Aykroyd's script back shredded with the note "No-one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts."
"Bill Murray is not capable of such behavior," said Aykroyd. "This is simply something that would not be in his nature." Get More »
It's bad enough that the original Ghostbusters headquarters, a real-life fire department in Tribeca, was threatened by budget cuts earlier this year. After a rally that drew Steve Buscemi and other NYC figures, the department was taken off the chopping block. But what about the long-rumored "Ghostbusters 3?" Get More »
Anna Faris ain't afraid of no ghosts, but that doesn't mean she's going to be getting her hands messy with ectoplasm any time soon.
Back in November, the fabulous funnylady was rumored to be trying on a khaki jumpsuit to join the long-awaited "Ghostbusters 3" alongside Will Forte and Bill Hader, as well as former 'busters Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and (fingers crossed!) Bill Murray. Alas, the whispers were only that.
"I wish I could confirm that," she confessed during an interview to promote her new film, "Take Me Home Tonight." "I am not attached -- it's a rumor that's flying around."
However, she's totally game for the gig. Get More »
When the script's messed up and the film's in trouble, who you gonna call? Ghostbusters!
Okay, okay, we had to say it. But here's the good news: according to Dan Aykroyd, not only is work on the long-rumored "Ghostbusters 3" continuing, it's now going so well that Aykroyd believes his co-star Bill Murray is set to deliver "the comic role of a lifetime."
This according to Slash Film, which caught up to Aykroyd during a promotional stop for his new Crystal Head vodka (which, before you ask, is in fact vodka bottled inside a crystal skull; someone alert Indiana Jones). Aykroyd was responding to comments made by Murray earlier this year, when he spoke to GQ and lambasted both the idea of a "Ghostbusters 3" and the script turned in by "The Office" writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg.
