More on the true GB3 (per EW):
-Jason Reitman will direct and co-write
-The other writer is Poltergeist remake and Monster House director Gil Kenan
-It is a DIRECT SEQUEL to the 80s films. Whether it incorporates the 2009 game isn't clear, but the game is considered canon.
-Aiming for a summer 2020 release with pre-production underway and filming to begin summer 2019.

Jason Reitman, as a director, knows how to pace jokes and plot. Thank You For Smoking is hilarious and the weak part of Juno is Diablo Cody's script. I've heard nothing but good about Tully and his other works.

Gil Kenan's Monster House was practically a love letter to GB and felt like an extended RGB episode. The direction of his Poltergeist remake was the only positive about it. I haven't seen City of Ember, but the clips I've watched are very interesting visually (reminiscent of City of Lost Children).

Also of note is that the status of the remaining original cast is up in the air, but the likelihood of their involvement is probably high. Aykroyd is a gimme, it's his baby and he's wanted to do a proper third film for decades at this point, and it's doubtful Ernie Hudson would say no. I can also see Sigourney and Annie Potts having, at least, cameos. Murray, though, will be in question until set photos show up, but I can see him popping in as both a way to cap off his most popular role and a favor to old friends. He's already worked with Kenan as part of the City of Ember cast and has been good friends with Ivan Reitman since before the first GB.

Also something worth noting: Gil Kenan is friendly with Max Landis, who shared a pretty solid outline of a GB3 treatment before the 2016 remake. It wouldn't surprise me if some of those elements, which have also shown up in the IDW comics, make it into the movie.

I'm uber excited that they decided to do this. I was really worried by the critical and financial bomb that the GB reboot/in another GB universe/what in the fuck exactly that the all-female version was. I thought with a pretty strong certainty that this was it for the franchise for at least live action film/TV. So this was a great surprise.

Murray you would think will be involved. I mean shit, they got him in a cameo in the reboot so it seems likely. I think whatever animosity there is can be alleviated by the right folks involved here, with Ivan and Jason Reitman being the bridge to getting things arranged and together in the best way possible. Have a lot of confidence in this whole thing.

Teaser trailer already got dropped today too, its not much but its something.

FWIW, I wouldnt even be opposed to having the ladies from the reimaging involved in some way, but it would have to be a stretch to even get a cameo going. Maybe they open up other dimensions and pull a Spiderman Into the Spiderverse thing and have them involved via those means? And if so, it would just be ideally a scene or two at most.

Please Rick Moranis, come back to Hollywood for this one!!!

Yeah, I'm wondering what it's going to take to get Rick Moranis to come out of exile for this.

Could not disagree any harder with her. People want to see the same actors/characters that were in the originals. Had there been a reboot with all male leads that were not the original actors, everyone would still be hyped for this movie.

Actor famous for her role in a film that was a reboot is disappointed she isn't involved in the next reboot. Irony.

Judd Apatow pulled the same nonsense when the reboot came out. He said in an interview that anybody who wasn't on-board with the remake is no better than a Trump supporter. That's a bad take, Judd.

I finally got around to watching the '16 remake this past weekend and it was...not good. Chris Hemsworth was easily the worst part of this while McKinnon stole the show for me. The entire film just felt like a series of improv skits that ultimately went nowhere with some action sequences spliced in.

I went in with low expectations so I can't really say I'm disappointed but wish more people admitted this was a misfire.

Sony has a problem with making good movies because their executives chase trends instead of letting filmmakers explore their vision. It's like the suits learned nothing from the New Hollywood era.

This isn't even a big deal tbh with reboots/remakes "skipping" other movies in a series and couching themselves as "direct" sequels to early films. Even back in the 80s and 90s horror movies especially were pulling this tactic.

Sounds like this is actually going to happen.  Even better Sigourney Weaver has signed on, and mentions it will be great working with the guys again.  Reports are they got Bill Murray to do it as well.  I hope someone can convince Rick Moranis to unretire for this one film.

Only thing that makes me sad is I wish Venkman (the TSM poster) was still around to see it.

Looking good so far. Ghostbusters to me is like Star Wars is to everyone else. I just want a good movie. Lots of nice callbacks in the trailer.

On one hand, I enjoy that it's in the hands of somebody who literally grew up with his father and his father's close friends being the ones responsible for it all. There's clearly going to be a level of revelry for the original that the 2016 remake didn't have, and that's good.

On the other hand? This isn't what I wanted. "Passing the torch" doesn't mean "let's do Stranger Things."

I'm optimistic about the quality of the end product but this is still missing the point about why the first one worked.

Lil’ Ghostbusters isn’t doing anything for me. Still looks more interesting than the last one. I’m sure Leslie Jones shot her tv at the “hasn’t been a ghost sighting in 30 years” comment.

I was born in 88 and grew up with more of the 90's comedies and didn't even see Ghostbusters until the late 00's, so I never had the connection many have with it. I didn't hate the 2016 version, but this looks so so bland. Finn Wolfhard is getting overexposed and wasn't that good to begin with.

Of all of the Ghostbusters films, this will certainly be the only one to have Pulitzer Prize Winner Tracy Letts in it.

Would have greatly preferred a more adult oriented comedy.  Comedies featuring children as the leads aren't usually my thing.

Part of the charm of the original Ghostbusters was that edge to the comedy.  That's harder to do with kids as the new leads.

I don't know if I like this or not. The biggest bright side is that this isn't going for the kind of scale the 2016 trailer was, where I could FEEL the Big Dumb Eyefuck Ending coming. The biggest question mark for me is the setting. New York is virtually a character itself in these movies, going to the polar opposite of "midwestern small town" gave me pause.

What I'm looking forward to most is the events of the 80s being spoken about as history, that this is in the same universe finally. I feel much better than I did after seeing the 2016 trailer. Wish they'd call it Part 3 or something, these subtitled sequels are always forgettable names.

Yeah, that's going to have to be explained.  As if you are in that universe, even if ghosts and the associated bustering hadn't been seen in 30 years, you'd still hear tons about it.

Wouldnt suprise me if the initial ghostbusters ended up being accused of "making it all up" or some nonsense like that hence why no one cares now.

If they could get forgotten about between the first and second movie, I can buy that to a degree. Not a large degree, but still.

It should be a conspiracy that they don't exist. The new antagonist can be an anti-ghost truther.

Exactly. This feels like it's trying to pull a Force Awakens when it should be an "evolving the business" story.

I rewatched GB2 the other day.  I love how the mid credit scenes are on liberty island with the statue back to normal.  Honestly how can any of this be forgotten.

If we are suppose to treat movies like "real world" that shit is being shown in TV every year during new years.
