With the passing of Harold Ramis, it seemed another monkey wrench had been thrown into the plans of the long rumored 'Ghostbusters 3,' which co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd has been working on for over twenty years. Now it's been revealed that commerce trumps tragedy as Sony and director Ivan Reitman are definitely moving forward with the project.
'Ghostbusters 3' has remained alive in fans' hearts thanks to hopeful chatter from original star Dan Aykroyd, though all the on-and-off development issues have placed this in the category of "we'll believe it when we see it." However, new reports have emerged claiming that the sequel will finally begin filming next year, perhaps even with two new stars attached.
'Ghostbusters 3' has seesawed between dead and "in progress" for quite some time, but one of the original film's stars, Dan Aykroyd, recently stated that filming will kick off next year... so that means it's still coming? Well, yes. Now it looks like we will be seeing a third installment coming in the near future, and Aykroyd took to Larry King to tell us more about what it'll be about.
'Ghostbusters 3' has been killed (and resurrected) so many times that we could easily make a joke about it being a ghost itself at this point, but we won't subject you to such poor comedy. After a few months of silence, the project has reared its head again and is back to haunt (sorry) internet movie news sites all over the world. The latest rumor is that 'Ghostbusters 3' is not only back from the dead, but it will now be an animated movie.
If you still had any hope left for 'Ghostbusters 3,' feel free to casually discard it now: Bill Murray is officially, definitely no longer appearing in the film. It's been a long and dramatic journey for this dying horse, but it's safe to say maybe we should let it go with dignity now?
Not so fast -- the film will go on without Murray.
