Say what? Ghostbusters 3 moves forward with new writing staff?

07.02.2012by: Jake Dee

F*ckin' hell, GHOSTBBUSTERS 3 is harder to kill than Seagal!

Painfully dated reference aside, it now seems Columbia is forging ahead with GB3, going so far as to assign new writers to the long-gestating Ivan Reitman sequel. Makes sense, as Bill Murray, whom I sure hope never agrees to partake in such a venal project, admitted to David Letterman last month that a new draft was being written.

Now, Dan Aykroyd has told ABC News that said draft is being written by a whole new team. Previous scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, the brains behind such winners as THE BIG YEAR and BAD TEACHER, have apparently been shown the boot. The new staff hasn't been identified.

Here's what Danny boy had to say:

"[We have a] new writing staff working on it now. It's got to be perfect. That's the whole thing. There's no point in doing it unless it's perfect."

Perfect? Perfect. Integrity's as rare as a four leaf clover in this biz, I really wish Bill Murray keeps his word and never, repeat never, obliges to do this movie, even in a 2 minute cameo. Stay strong Bill, there's many of us on your side.

Are you one, or do you want to see GHOSTBUSTERS 3 get made after-all?

Now there's a movie I'd see!

There's been so much starts and stops with this one has to think if it ever did happen it will be pure crap. On the other hand hopefully we trust Aykroyd that "it has to be perfect" I honestly would not want to see this if the whole crew wasn't back, including Murray, and also Morannis!

There comes a time when you have to let some things go, no matter how much you want them to happen. As much as I'd love for GHOSTBUSTERS 3 to right the wrong that was GHOSTBUSTERS 2, I'll take solace in the cartoon and the original.

I really really really hope this movie finally happens! I've been waiting on it for years and I really think it will be great. I thought GB2 was just as good as the original. I only want this movie to happen if all of the original Ghostbusters return, though. I don't think it will work if even one is missing.

It's over...

I was initially excited at the concept of a third, and even held on to that excitement for a while... But it's done. This series doesn't need another movie, most of all not 30 years later. It just feels so unnatural and forced, and with Murray so opposed to it, only stands to tarnish all the good things about the original two. Or at least just the original.

i myself would LOVE to see Ghostbusters on the big screen again, but only if it's great! I think without Bill there's no point in doing it, so it needs to be GREAT! It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see they should have got a new writing staff ages ago! I mean Bad Teacher was a fun rental, but Year One was just plain afwul!! Don't mess around here Akyroyd! Hire a GREAT writing team, and pay them a crap load of money to write you a masterpiece!!

I hope it will be good as I want to see Ghostbusters on the big screen once again. Extra tidbit: 4 Ghostbusters up on the roof facing Gozer the Gozerian with their proton packs ready for action. And Peter said "Let's show this prehistoric bit** how we do things downtown". Got goosebump from this scene every time I watch it.
