Harold Ramis promises us we'll see Ghostbusters 3 for Christmas 2012

5 years agoby:

Why look, some GHOSTBUSTERS 3 news that doesn't involve Bill Murray being snarky/angry regarding the movie or his role in it.

Harold Ramis is well aware of the talk swirling around the film, none of it particularly good, but he’s come out and said that despite the rumor mill, the film is not only happening, but he pins it down to a pretty specific release date.

“Well, there’s been a lot of talk about a third Ghostbusters film, which has now become real. It’s… I can say with some certainty that there will be a third movie. It won’t be out until Christmas 2012, but the work is going on now.”

I honestly don’t think this movie hinges on Murray’s involvement, though I do think he’ll give in and show up for at least a cameo just so everyone will stop bothering him. I am not sure, however, that this entire project is a good idea, especially with Ramis and his writing cronies behind the horrendous YEAR ONE last year which would be an indication of their current comedy stylings. I’m almost half tempted to suggest giving the whole thing to Judd Apatow at this point.

Extra Tidbit: Has it been announced it's in 3D yet? I imagine that HAS to be the case right?

Another game please, that one was awesome and much more satisfying than another film will be.

isn't Ivan Reitman still attached to direct? if so I think this is going to be okay.

Too Damn Late

I am a huge fan of the first one, and think the second is decently amusing, but nothing great. The new game was rather fun though.

This just feels like a sad cash grab though. "Year One" was one of the worst comedies of all time, and it was really Murray who made those movies so good (not to discount anyone else, as they do fine as well, just not as good). And if it's younger, newer folks, then I feel someone else should write it, someone who can relate to a younger crowd today, the way the

Sadly, the writers of this are the guys that did "Year One" so they obviously have no clue what they're doing, so I am scared.

This would not surprise me at all. Have you seen the new commercial with Talyor Swift about that new sony camera? In the beginning of the commercial they show the Ghostbuster car.

I'm wondering why Aykroid and Ramis didn't write the third one. Its not like they have been extremely busy for the past 10 years.
I bet they have written the basic story. They are just using these new writers to make it more relevant for today's audience. Because it has been a really long time since the 2nd movie released and i'm sure they have written numerous drafts.

I am torn with this movie. I love the Ghostbusters and a new one would be awesome is it was actually good, but I feel like it is going to suck. All the guys are old and putting them in the film and introducing new recruits would just make a clutter of characters. I just think they'll fuck it up.

Correct me if I'm wrong

Isn't the purpose of a sequel to surpass the original? That's something Ghostbusters II didn't accomplish. I doubt this movie will.

No, no, no...you presume some sort of artistic drive on the part of the movie creators.

The purpose of a sequel is to make money on a known set of characters.

I'm glad they're making Ghostbusters 3. I love Ghostbusters as a kid and I still do. I just hope that Ernie Hudson has more role in this one. Bring back Ecto-1 please. What we have best so far is the new Ghostbusters game which is totally awesome and very fun to play. So I'm on for the next Ghostbusters movie.

Please Stop!

I'm a HUGE Ghostbusters fan from way back and I think going forward with this movie is a terrible idea. Every time they go back to do more it gets worse and worse. Leave the classics as they are and create something new. You guys became legends for this stuff and not by accident. Stop riding on the coat tails of your previous success and do something new. Every time I read about this it gets more and more depressing.

You Will Enjoy It

I'm glad a Ghostbuster 3 is gonna happen. Honestly I never had my doubts. The studio would be idiots if they didn't think making a 3rd would bring in money. AND if they are smart about it, they could make BANK with merchandising, really to every demo too, the young and the die hard oldies alike.

And as much as I would think all of the original cast should be in it, a ghostbusters 3 (if they're smart) will bring on a new crew; batman beyond style, if you will.

Anybody remember extreme

Anybody remember extreme ghostbusters in the late 90s? They already have a great story there; new crew, old crew, new weapons, new ghosts...you couldn't ask for a better set up.

I think they should either go with the extreme ghostbusters route, or the ghostbuster video game storyline route (which I thought was fantastic encompassing the other 2 films.)

How come we never hear Ernie Hudson's view about a third Ghostbuster's movie? It's always Murray, Ramis, Akroyd, or Weaver. I'm just stating a point. I'll believe this movie is happening when he confirms it, everything else has been too back and forth about this movie happening or not.

Hudson's always been asked/talking about it, usually at signings and the like.

He'd sounds like he'd be happy to do it when it comes along, but he's been hearing things for YEARS so he's not saying anything official til he signs a bit of paper that has a production date on it.

He's just not as publicised online because he's not Akroyd/Ramis (remember they were also the original writers) or an A-lister such as Sigourney or Bill Murray. I do agree it's a shame though.

As in you couldn't give less of a shit. Because if you COULD care less then that means you care a bit to be able to care less.

Pet peeve.

Bring on thumbs down, but I gotta say: for fuck's sake, let this movie die.

Sure, nobody's seen a script, so there's no telling if it COULDN'T be good. But the bitterness and resentment that Murray's shown has only bred an environment of bipolarity next to Ramis' and Aykroyd's optimism. Chemistry is clashing like a mofo, and I'm sure the guys are really squeezing for the last of their creative juices.

Let it die.

Year One = Garbage.

Oh boy, just thinking of the same writing style as Year One makes me wanna' hate this movie already. Year One has such potential yet came off as boring, stupid, and plain lame. The chemistry between Cera and Jack Black was not only forced but fake and just...argh, so awful to begin with. Can't say I'm excited now.

Star Wars Episodes 1 through III
Live Free or Die Hard

All of these movies had HUGE anticipation going in, and Die Hard was the only one that you can honestly say wasn't a huge disappointment. And that was far from a good movie. How can you guys honestly be excited for this thing? The same thing is going to happen that happens with all these dumb 80's reboots and sequels. Everyone gets really excited to revisit their childhood, only to get burned. I'm not

I don't like revisiting old franchises anymore. I liked the original Ghostbusters, and the game was a cool nostalgia trip. I can live without Ghostbusters 3.

I would be even less excited if it went the Apatow route. The Ghostbusters would spend most of their time smoking weed, talking about weed, making constant pop culture references and acting like they are indifferent to the world.
