The fact that Columbia Pictures was bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen for a third installment was likely the biggest movie news story of last week. Naturally, people want to hear the thoughts of the old gang about this upcoming reunion and the first opportunity has happened over the weekend. Harold Ramis talked to the Chicago Tribune on the announcement.

"Yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my [Year One] writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. Judd apatow is co-producing [Year One] and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity.

Nice... thats the way i always saw the next installment of Ghostbusters. the original cast teaching a set of new guys how to take over the business. i hope they come up with something original, something different from the last 2.

Yep. While I still have reservations, that was what I needed to hear. <BR itxtvisited="1" /><BR itxtvisited="1" />What if they went REALLY different and made it more of a suspensful action?! Keep the <A class=iAs style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal! important; FONT-SIZE: 100%! important; PADDING-BOTTOM: 1px! important; COLOR: darkgreen! important; BORDER-BOTTOM: darkgreen 0.07em solid; BACKGROUND-COLOR: transparent! important; TEXT-DECORATION: underline! important" href="#" target=_blank itxtdid="6754942">comedy</A>, of course - the witty lines, the bumbling sense of not quite knowing what to do, disagreements with people who have no dicks, etc - but move it in a direction of say... Aliens. It need not have THAT much action/suspense nor be that dark, but more action than guys just standing still shooting at 1 or 2 ghosts from a distance. Just a thought. I want to see the stuff behind this comment: "I'm Winston Zeddemore, Your Honor. I've only been with the company for a couple of weeks. But I gotta tell you, these things are real. Since I joined these men, I have seen shit that'll turn you white."

Most excellent. Only way to go really for a new Ghostbuster movie. They are 2 old and out of shape to be chasing ghosts around NY. Bring on the Apatow crew for the roles!!!!!!!! Seth Rogen, Bill Hader, James Franco as the new kid on the blocks. And some Mclovin as the relative of Rick Moranis!!

Apatow's involved? I'm sitting this one out.

I'm all for some ectoplasm... I'll propose for the main cuartet: Jon Heder (as the scientist reuniting a team to battle !* spoiler*! the ghost of Dana Barrett) Paul Rudd (as the horny scientist, !* spoiler*! son of Dana Barrett and Dr. Peter Venkman)ooooh! Amy Poehler(as a "lipstick wearing pitbull" scientist) Romany Malco (as the token back guy... I mean... as an Englishman obsessed with the history of ghosts) Oh! and McLovin can be the assistant or AKA "Janine". As of the original team, Ray and Egon continue their research on spectral activity, resulting award winning celebrities (nobel is too easy in movies). Winston Zeddemore retires and has his own family, away from any ghosts. Peter is in a mental asylum. Dana is dead (doh!) If you need me to write the rest of the screenplay, contact my agent ;p

I like the sound of this. Takes me back to 1984 when it was still safe to see movies at the Indian Springs theater without getting caught in the crossfire of gang violence. That mall has since died a slow death, but The Ghostbusters live on!

Ya know I thought James Franco was a Streisand in The SPIDERPIG franchise and Anapolis but he rocked the shit in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS.

Let's not forget that "Baby Oscar" should be about 20 yrs old now. He could be a part of the new team.

Let's hope "Baby Oscar" has been hit by a truck. Seriously. I don't want passing-the-torch Ghostbusters movie. I don't want Rogan, Rudd or any of Aptow's stable. I want a stand alone movie, with the original 4 Ghostbusters, that's both funny & scary as hell. If that's too much to ask then don't waste my fucking time.

Flint, have you seen Akroyd & Ramis lately? No mention of Reitman, wonder if they'll ask him to be back.
