Bill Murray did an interview on Howard Stern a few weeks ago, and he said he's had a script on his desk for a couple years but hasn't gotten around to reading it yet.  He gave off the impression that he really doesn't want to do the movie, but could end up getting roped into it as a favor to Akroyd, Reitman and Ramis.  There's also the belief that the studio won't go forward on it without Murray attached, so he's basically holding the project hostage right now

Personally, I don't need to see a Ghostbusters 3.  It's been too long, everybody is too old, and Akroyd is too fat.

Now, I wasn't saying it was 100% true, and maybe she was talking about a different part, like the script being done or preproduction or something else.

dead man, I'm with you on not needing a new Ghostbusters film. After seeing Year One, I never want anyone associated with the making of that film to ever make another one.

Bill Murray strikes me as the type of person who doesn't do favors.

We know. We're making fun of your stupid friend, who said they'd finished shooting it.

That's who he works for, yes.

I believe it happened though. Sigourney knows the rule - when someone asks you about Ghostbusters 3, you say YES.

I could actually see Murray doing a favor for Ramis and Aykroyd since he somewhat owes his career to them. However, Ghostbusters: The Video Game could be seen as the "favor" being done.

He was obviously going to be huge because of his comic delivery and just overall charisma, but it was really SNL, Meatballs, Caddyshack, Stripes, and Ghostbusters that cemented him as a star, all of which involved Ramis and/or Aykroyd in the writing department.

Basically what I get from that is they're pretty much making this a movie.

You know, that show got a hugely bad rap. A lot of the episodes were actually pretty brutal in tone, especially compared to the overall lighthearted slapstick of the original RGB cartoon. The long-term story arc of Kylie and Eduardo secretly being in love and never openly admitting it wasn't too shabby for a kid's cartoon, either.

Oh, I'm not knocking the show, don't get me wrong.

It just seems like an extremely (no pun intended) similar concept.

Someone did have a good idea for who to get to play Kylie: Pauley Perrette

I just had a vision of Donald Glover, Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenny as the new Ghostbusters, Liam McPoyle as new Louis Tully, and it being written by Akyroyd/Ramis.

If that were to happen, Ghostbusters 3 wouldn't need Murray.

I think the same company that handled distribution for the Back to the Future anniversary re-release is doing this, so it should be playing at AMC theaters, of which there are none near me.

Searched the AMC Theaters site to see if they had any more information on it. I found this instead.

Despite how mediocre it turned out to be, I think the Shaft reboot actually got it right: it's TECHNICALLY a sequel, as the original Shaft appears (and they make it clear that Samuel L. Jackson's Shaft is the original's nephew), but they made it its own movie.

This got me thinking. Instead of going with a straightforward sequel or another lame-ass reboot (it made me laugh that the author of that blog I linked said nobody born after 1989 knows of the movie, because it's not like it's one of the single most beloved comedies movies of the last 30 years or anything), I actually would kinda dig the idea of the original team only making cameo appearances as themselves, maybe taking the GB company in the movie into a franchise with the original team only around as the head chairmen, or at least primary stock holders. I could see Ray and Egon heading the research and development department, Venkman as the company's spokesperson, and Winston as one of the head trainers for new recruits. They'd basically be a privatized version of the fire department, a main theme could be the government wanting to take over their business and run it, antitrust lawsuits, etc.

Wasn't that the plan though? That they were passing the torches onto a new team and this was essentially a way to get the franchise back to life WITHOUT having to restart it?

I think so, but that makes it seem like the plot will be Aykroyd/Ramis/Hudson/Murray (maybe) actively doing so throughout the course of the movie instead of having them be cameo parts. It'd piss off a lot of the core fanbase, but you can do GB without having a bunch of fat old guys actively trying to do the same things they did 20 years ago.

But that is a great story! It's them realizing guess what, we are too old for this shit. Them trying to have that one last grab at glory. I do not see the main issue with a story like that.

Let's be real here, how many reboots have led to a new franchise? Batman?
I really cannot think of many reboots that led to anything more than one underperforming lukewarm response of a film.

Aye. True, true...

Remember the last season or two of Scrubs when the main cast was barely in it besides Dr. Cox, Turk, and Carla? A GB3 without the original cast playing a major role would be like that.

So, Ghostbusters is being re-released into theaters TONIGHT ONLY to commemorate its 25-year anniversary. Here's a good way to find showings near you (you'll need to be logged into Facebook to use it).

Well then. I feel stupid for saying that.

I do not, however, feel stupid for seeing it anyway. Seeing Ghostbusters on the big screen for the first time in my life was an experience. I've memorized every line from it, learned the majority of its backstory (including how Bill Murray improvised the least of the main cast, oddly enough), and all that noise...but I still laughed my fucking ass off at all of the little things I missed because I'd only seen it on your average TV screen. Case in point?

-When Janine tells Egon that she's afraid that he's going to die and then hugs him, Egon rolls his eyes at her concerns before comforting her.
-When Peck is walking around Venkman's office, Janine peaks her head around the corner to see what's going on.
-When Venkman is using the squeeze-pump instrument in Dana's apartment, he's holding it very precariously in the region of his crotch/waist, even squeezing it harder once or twice while he points it at Dana's face.

Corey, let me ask you, how was the crowd? When I saw Back to the Future on the big screen, I was afraid that everyone would call out the lines before they happen, but they didn't. It was great. Did they do that at your screening for this?

Well, there was a grand total of 12 people in the audience, and I think the only people who actually knew the lines were my friend Joey and I. We recited a few of the lines along with the movie, but not so loud that anybody beyond our own group could hear it.

...except we did sing along to the song at the end...because we're fucking tools like that...

I can't say I blame you. In the DVD commentary, they say that the audience cheered the first time the Ghostbusters showed up in full uniform, too.

The more I think about it, the more I realize that Ghostbusters is one of the most well made movies ever.

It really is. Even the pacing is more reminiscent of the old 40's horror/comedies that Aykroyd loved so much as a kid, stuff like Ghost Breakers and whatnot.
