Report: Sony Pictures confirms “Ghostbusters 3” is greenlighted for 2013???

Did Bill Murray finally read the script to “Ghosbusters 3”, and he’s actually down for reprising his role as Peter Venkman? A press release was published in the “Licensing Trade” magazine at the Licensing International Expo. in Las Vegas, and somebody scanned the press release to post it on the internet for the rest of us to see.

Check it out, here!

As you all know, Bill Murray has been very critical about “Ghostbusters 3” for a long time now and he wouldn’t read the script even though it was sent to him. Sony revealed they would cancel the third movie if Bill wouldn’t do it.

For now, this is just a rumor, Sony themselves haven’t confirmed this yet. All we can do for now is cross our fingers. Even though everyone is critical about a third Ghostbusters film, I think a third film deserves to happen to close out the trilogy whether you agree with it or not.

Hopefully this news is true and we should hear from Sony soon.

Report: Bill Murray claims he haven’t read the “Ghostbusters 3” script…

Not too long ago, Ivan Reitman announced that he sent the script for “Ghostbusters 3”, to Bill Murray to get his approval of the film. Bill recently had an interview with Howard Stern on Sirius. Of course, Howard had to ask  him about the script.

Bill confirmed he does have the script, but he claims he haven’t read it. He says the script have been sitting on his desk at his home office but he doesn’t know how long he haven’t read it. He says he’ll read it at some point because he doesn’t want to hurt people’s feelings who’ve been wanting him to read it.

Read Bill’s full interview with Howard, here.

Come on Billy! Pick up the damn script and read it! I’m pretty sure he has all day to read the script, for some reason he doesn’t want to. As you can see, Bill is STILL being picky with the, “Ghostbusters 3” movie. He’s very difficult about it for whatever reason. I guess Bill wants to make sure that the story is going to work in order for him to give it the greenlight.

It doesn’t take that long to read a movie script. They can take a couple of days to read. I’ve read movie scripts before.

It’ll be a shame if Bill says, “No”, to G3. So hopefully he’ll get around to reading it, lets cross our fingers if he’ll like it enough. I respect Bill’s honesty and keeping things real though. Gotta give that.

Report: Aykroyd, Timberlake, Faris are starring in “Yogi Bear” live action/CGI movie…

Yogi Bear is finally heading to the big screen! The film will be a live action and CGI animated both at the same time. It will take place at no where other than, Yellowstone Park. Starring the film will be Dan Aykroyd, Justin Timberlake, and Anna Faris. Shooting will start in New Zealand, next month. The film will be directed by Eric Brevig.

Aykroyd will be the one voicing Yogi, and Timberlake will be voicing Boo Boo. Faris will be playing a live action character which she will portray as a documentary film maker in, “Yogi”.

The article doesn’t explain what the plot will be so it looks like the plot will be kept underwraps for now.

Report: Dan Aykroyd says, “Ghostbusters III” could start filming this year, but who will direct?

Dan Aykroyd, confirms the news that “Ghostbusters III” could start filming this winter. They tried to get Ivan Reitman to direct the 3rd film but he’s too busy producing other films. They said if Ivan turns down the opportunity to direct a third film, Harold Ramis, says he is game to directing the third film himself.

Bill Murray once gave the idea that he would like to see females become Ghostbusters in the new one, look like they are agreeing with Bill’s idea. Dan Aykroyd says he wants Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku to be the new female ghostbusting ass kickers.

I am loving the idea of hot babes being Ghostbusters!!! Great choices on Alyzza and Eliza. They haven’t been casted yet, they were just ideas thrown in by Dan Aykroyd, so hopefully these two gorgeous ladies will get confirmed for the film.

Who will be the new young male Ghostbusters? As long as they don’t get Robert Pattison, Chace Crawford, Shia Labeouf or Zac Efron, I’m happy.

I think they should go for Chris Pine from “Star Trek” and Seth Rogen maybe? Since “Ghostbusters” films are comedy too, Seth Rogen would be a perfect choice for a Ghostbuster to bring humor into it. Seth is not that old, he’s about 27 or something like that?

Glad that G3 is still moving forward.

Report: Dan Aykroyd says “Ghostbusters 3” might go in production this fall…

Dan Aykroyd said the script for “Ghostbusters 3” is finished, ready to go, and all he needs now is to wait for the studio to say, “Yes, go ahead and make the film”. In other words, he needs to wait for the greenlight now. Hopefully they’ll get a response in the summer, and once they get the greenlight, they’ll start filming “Ghostbusters 3” this fall.

Very nice! Glad the film is still moving forward. I’m also looking forward to the video game as well.

My question is, who will direct “Ghostbusters 3”? Ivan Reitman or Harold Ramis? Either one of them choices would be good for me.
