GB3 director?

10.09.2009

Who you gonna booty-call...

Might seem a little like non-news, but anything that signals forward movement on the frigginly-long-discussed GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is worth pointing out. So here we go.

The folks at Bloody Disgusting got it from a reliable source, although of the unnamed kind but we'll trust them as always, that Ivan Reitman is 100% confirmed back as a producer for the film, and is currently pacing the halls to determine whether he wants to also direct again.

No great detail is known on the movie, with Harold Ramis having stated back in June that a first draft should be delivered around this time. The story would see the original team, even Bill Murray surprisingly enough since he was often singled out as the reason the film hadn't yet happened, re-open their business with a younger team to take up the mantle. Eliza Dushku's name has apparently been flying around, and to that I say Yes, please.

As much as I love the original, Reitman's last few films haven't exactly been unanimously hailed, although I still say EVOLUTION is grossly underrated. So who here wants to see him back in the director's chair? let's hear it.

Extra Tidbit: Bill Murray's one big final condition to return was reportedly that Ernie Hudson be given a more significant part than previously. Couldn't agree more, Bill. Nice house, btw. wink-wink.

If Murray did hold out cause he wanted Hudson to have a large role, that makes him a P.I.M.P! Hudson never seemed to get any love, like he never got treated like an original Ghostbuster even though he was.

All for it. Agree on the Chevy/Murray comparison.

I'm all for Reitman coming back IF there is forward movement on this thing. I kinda wish Aykroyd and Ramis were still doing the script. This is one of those movies I think would've been cool ten years ago, but by now I think it'd be just as well we be happy with what we got (one good movie and one bad one).

So long as all the originals are back. Including producer, director and writer. I AM SO GAME FOR THIS MOVIE! And I completely agree, Evolution WAS grossly underrated.

I hope Ivan Reitman directs GB3, that would make the nostalgia even cooler when it comes out.

WTF?

I left a comment which poeple don't seem to agree with and I want to know why to be honest. Ghostbusters is my all time favourite and I thought fellow fans would agree. I mean I don't want it to turn out like blues brothers 2000, the last sequal Dan Ackroyd was in charge of. I mean Eliza Dushku,come on, check her average score in IMDB if you don't agree. She would be out of place totally. I also wasn't saying Apatow get involved just good actors like Jonah hill you could match Bill Murray in

I think as long as everybody is on board, and yes Ivan Reitman is a must..as long as old and new elements are included, it should be a good push forward to a 3rd movie.

Evolution and Orlando Jones (?)

Evolution is totally underrated! Whatever happened to Orlando Jones (I think that was his name)? He was the 7-Up guy and was also in Double Take (I think its called that) and The Time Machine around that time. Granted, his best role was the 7-Up guy, but that dude was going places.

I agree, Reitman's last few weren't that great, but I think get him working with Murray, Aykroyd and Ramis again it would be awesome.

SAM ROCKWELL in GB3, please.

I want to see SAM ROCKWELL in this movie. just think about that casting for a moment. How awesome would he be in it? As for Ivan, I'd dig that. But I'd rather see his son do it. If that were possable. Just saying...

We've all wanted this movie to happen for years, but we all get let down when it falls apart. I really hope it happens. Evolution was great. "i seen this movie, the black guy dies first"

Although there are a lot of ways to screw this up, with the right story & cast it could be great. They should stay away from the standard Apatow crew for this to work, and have the main focus on the original cast.

I agree, the focus needs to be with the orginal cast, with Eliza being the "future" ghostbuster..that should be at the end of the movie.

I like where this is going

Having Reitman back producing is great, if he was directing that would be even better. If Eliza was cast that would be amazing. He can act, she's funny, casting some of the current "funny men" from todays movies wouldn't work. I don't think the jonah hill, jon heder, michael cera type actor would work well

I'm really looking forward to this movie, especially with how brilliant the game ended up being. I'm just worried that everyone is too old and I don't want them to focus on some "passing of the torch" thing. I mean it makes sense for them to have new recruits if their business has been successful for so long but...I don't want it to lose the "magic" of the originals. Also, Bill Murray looks a LOT older than I expected in a recent flick...I'm hoping it was mostly makeup - it made me sad.

Passing the torch is a death sentence that has never worked in cinema. And the Apatow crew are talentless fcks who cant act and have absolutely no range. If you suggest them in the film, you are simply looking for something that isn't ghostbusters so look somewhere else. Why switch teams at the end of a franchise? We should follow the originals stories. There will not be another sequel because they all own rights to the name and it took 20 years to get this one maybe.

I'm down for it but I still say JASON REITMAN should be directing with Ivan producing. It gives Ivan someone he knows he can absolutely trust to reign in the production. And it wouldn't be just cause he's Ivan's son, with the likelihood Jason will get a directing Oscar nom this year.

NO NO NO NO NO!!!

Ghostbusters is my all time favourite film and the last thing I want to see is it get the crystal skull treatment. I'd rather not see another one than see a shitty sequal that ruins the others for me. Eliza Dushku, what the fuck?! Is that a joke? If they are insistent on having them train a younger team (which they did a cartoon called 'Extreme Ghostbusters' and it didn't work) then it needs to be good comedy actors, the equivilent of what Murray and Ackroyd were in the 80's. Jonah Hill, John

Jonah Hill, John Heder, Micheal Cera etc etc.
I could go on forever about how much this won't work, none have made a good film in recent years other than Bill Murray.
I'd rather have them do another game, that game was awesome but had enough room to be improved upon.

What is it with people and Evolution? I thought it was gonna be hilarious from the way some people talk about it...and it turned out to be exactly what I had expected in the first place.

I loved Evolution.

Yeah in some interview Reitman said that it would be very hard for him to let somebody else direct a third GB. I'm pretty sure if it happens, he'll do it.

I know there are many people out there who do not want a 3rd Ghostbusters, but honest, y ou know if there would be, you will be first in line, lol.

I think that would be awesome if Ivan Reitman came back to direct. Even though I agree Tony on Evolution being pretty under rated, I know he will not disappoint.

And Eliza, cool. Really don't care about that.
