Ghostbusters 3 shooting delayed again due to money issues at Sony

Oct. 31, 2012by: Alex Maidy

Despite the recent news that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 would begin shooting next summer, money woes at Sony have pushed production to an unspecified time next Fall.

Sony's production slate is frozen until March 31, when the fiscal year comes to an end and the Japanese company can re-assess their financial issues. This means nothing can move forward until at least that date if not later. This means that Sony could decide to sell GHOSTBUSTERS 3 to another studio, share the costs like they are doing with George Clooney's MOMUMENTS MEN.

With the issues GHOSTBUSTERS 3 has encountered so far, it is not outside of reason for Sony to consider it too large a financial gamble and scrap the project entirely. Seeing as we have waited this long to get the sequel, we could wait longer. But, with Arnold becoming Conan again and a new STAR WARS trilogy on the way, never say never.

There are obviously still fans out there clamoring for more GHOSTBUSTERS. Take a look at this fan video as proof.

We're all asking the wrong question, damn it!

I'm tired of the debate on whether there should be a new Ghostbusters with or without Bill Murray. Sony owns the rights and can make the movie (financing aside) whenever they want. There is no "if" only "when" and the question is, do you want a Ghostbusters relaunch that ignores the original movies, or a sequel that continues them on and respects the existing cannon? The answer is so painstakingly obvious, the only tragedy here is that Bill Murray can't get off his hypocritical high horse to

The answer is so painstakingly obvious, the only tragedy here is that Bill Murray can't get off his hypocritical high horse to get involved. He had no objection to Garfield 2, Operation Dumbo Drop or appearing in Get Smart in a #$&*ing tree. Mark my words, he'll do it. He's just waiting for them to pay him properly for it.

I don't see Sony letting this one slip away for good. It's clearly a bankable franchise, just needs handling properly.

This Bill Murray-less mess should die, be zapped, then sucked into a trap.

I want this to be good

So bad. So, so bad. But the likeliness of that happening, and the movie actually being good are about as high as Valve making a Half-Life 3. Or Portal 3. Or Team Fortress 3.

Or anything 3.

Akroyd should have learned from Blues Brothers 2000. Showing up looking haggard and fat and trying to recapture the magic is just a terrible, terrible idea. We love the originals, and nothing will change that. Leave it alone, for fuck's sake.

How many signs does the Universe have to send before they understand that this is a bad idea? This movie can't catch a break, maybe it's just NOT MEANT TO BE

I have said it before, the delays are just a sign that this movie should not happen. As much I love the first two films (yes I highly enjoy the second one) and I would love to dive back in to the universe, I just don't think it should happen and I think signs are pointing to that as well.
