Legendary comedian Dan Aykroyd apparently wrote a pitch for a Ghostbusters prequel called “Ghostbusters High”. He described it as the main 3 ‘busters (Ray, Peter, and Egon) as teenagers meeting for the first time in 1969 and forging the friendship that would eventually bring them toe-to-toe with Gozer the Gozerian. “I’ve written Ghostbusters High, where they meet […]
Original Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd has some things to say (over martinis) about the 2016 female-fronted entry in the franchise. He served as producer on Paul Feig‘s take, and says he should have blamed himself for the soaring costs of the production. While chatting with Canadian outlet 660CityNews, the legendary Saturday Night Live alum and comedy great expounded […]
We do know that Fargo‘s Carrie Coon and Stranger Things‘s Finn Wolfhard have reportedly closed the deal to join Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters 3 film for Sony, and production was supposedly set to start in the next two months. Discussing Film (yeah, we know) says that production start has been pushed back- only by a few months- to July 12th in […]
Sony is taking no chances with spilling secrets for their upcoming film Ghostbusters 3. Just how far are they taking it? To the point that Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard, who will star in the Jason Riteman-directed film, had no idea what he was even auditioning for. During a chat with MTVNews during CinemaCon (happening this week in Las […]
What’s a week in 2019 without some casting rumors for an upcoming film property that already has audiences divided? This time, it’s another Ghostbusters 3 thing. According to a report from Variety, Fargo‘s Carrie Coon and Stranger Things‘s Finn Wolfhard are reportedly close to joining Jason Reitman‘s Ghostbusters 3 film for Sony. The outlet says their sources allude to the story will […]
Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy has finally commented on the upcoming reboot Ghostbusters 3 film from Sony and writer/director Jason Reitman. This reboot will reportedly NOT include any of the ladies from the 2016 female-fronted Ghostbusters film which McCarthy starred in along with Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon. McCarthy, who was nominated in the leading actress category at last night’s 91st […]
Good for Jason Reitman, we guess, attempting to clarify his comments about wanting to “hand the movie back to fans” regarding his Ghostbusters 3 project at Sony, which will theoretically completely ignore the 2016 all-female version. Considering how heated Ghostbusters Gate got when the initial 2016 film was announced, it seemed like Reitman (who’s father Ivan Reitman directed […]
Who knew that the Ghostbusters fandom was more alive and well in 2019 than it was 30 years ago? (This is a rhetorical question, we are highly aware of just how big the fandom is, thankyouverymuch) When Sony announced they were moving forward with a Ghostbusters 3 film, the news was met with mixed emotions. We […]
Paul Feig, director of 2016’s all-female Ghostbusters film, has finally weighed in on the current hot topic item- Ghostbusters 3, and Leslie Jones‘ angry reactionary tweet. After all the ectoplasm vitriol lobbed towards the cast and crew of the 2016 Ghostbusters film, we didn’t really think Jones’ strongly worded tweet needed an explanation. But judging by the sheer amount of tweets […]
We were partially hoping the ectoplasm venom of Ghostbusters-gate was behind us after the release and ultimate panning of Paul Feig‘s 2016 all-female reboot. It doesn’t really matter what you think of that particular film in this instance, just remember everyone involved with it is a PERSON, and worthy of respect. Obviously, several of you [yes, even […]
Last night, we were delighted to report that another Ghostbusters film is in the works, with heavy ties to the original pair of films. Namely, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 director Ivan Reitman’s son Jason Reitman is stepping in to write and direct. Cut to this morning, when a “teaser” in the truest sense of the word, has been released for the film: Our […]
There is an interesting rumor running around and THR has it up on their site. Supposedly Paul Feig, director of Bridesmaids and The Heat, is Sony’s favorite to take on Ghostbusters 3. Now, the sources caution that no actual negotiations have taken place, but both sides have shown interest. The idea is that the movie […]
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel are interested in Ruben Fleischer, Adam McKay and Rawson Marshall Thurber as possible Ant-Man replacements for recently estranged co-writer and director Edgar Wright. The Wrap go so far as to say Thurber is the frontrunner, but he might be distracted by Ghostbusters 3, or for that matter, his personal life. There’s […]
It seems that the dream is over.
Yesterday was a day of Moon Knight, Doctor Who, and also this: Tony Panaccio wants Bill Murray to know something. Most-Read TV/Film Stories Friday: Agents Of SHIELD Will Venture Into Two-Parters, Books Some Returning Characters There’s an implicit promise of excitement, key plot points and maybe even big choices in the latest episode announcement for […]
Tony Panaccio has something he wants from Bill Murray. Yeah - good luck with that, Tony.
It's really happening. For real. Almost certainly without Bill Murray, but still.
Who the heck are Jeremy and Anna?
Amongst the talent will be Futurama's Maurice La Marche and Phil LaMarr, videogame hero Nolan North, and Joel Murray, brother of Bill and star of Bobcat Goldthwait's honestly excellent God Bless America.
This is starting to sound a bit like a Michel Gondry project.
