“Ghostbusters 3” is still moving forward and Jason Reitman (Ivan’s son) is directing it… my thoughts…

So Sony just hired Jason Reitman to be the director of “Ghostbusters 3” which is still in the works. Jason Reitman was the director of movies such as “Juno” and “Up In the Air”. He’s also the son of Ivan Reitman who directed the first two “Ghostbusters”.

Dan Aykroyd has been desperately trying to get GIII made for a long time now ever since the second one. Dan’s original plan for Ghostbusters was the passing of a “torch” kind of movie, the original Ghostbusters passing the torch to young ones. Dan’s been trying to push GIII to get made ever since the 2nd but there has been some setbacks ever since. The biggest setback the film suffered was that Harold Ramis passed away and then Ivan Reitman stepped down from directing GIII ’cause of it. Then Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot happened which was a box office failure.

It seems that Sony is moving forward with GIII still… a third film from the first two original movies.


Will the surviving members of Ghostbusters reprise their roles for the third one? Ya know… will Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray return? We’ll have to wait and see. I think there’s a big chance those guys will be coming back.

A lot of people want to be quick to hate on this since Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” all-female thing was a flop but don’t be so quick to judge.

I think Jason Reitman could do Ghostbusters justice and give the fans exactly what they want. I’m sure Jason will be getting plenty of help from his father Ivan anyways even though Ivan won’t be directing. I think this one could be better than the all-female reboot.

I’m gonna give Jason’s take on “Ghostbusters” a chance. I think he could do a way better job than Paul Feig. I haven’t seen the all-female reboot and don’t think I’ll see that one at all. I just hope Jason makes the next movie more like the first one. Hopefully the original cast comes back: Ernie, Dan, Bill, Rick Moranis, Sigourney, etc. Jason said that this is a continuation of the original series so there is a great chance that everyone might be coming back. It would be nice if Louis Tully returned though ’cause that was a great character.


Speaking of “Ghostbusters III” what are they gonna do with the theme song???

Since “Ghostbusters III” is finally moving forward, I wonder what Sony is planning to do with the theme song. Will they bring back the original Ray Parker Jr. song? I think they should.

Of course, it wouldn’t surprise me that Sony would give “Ghostbusters 3” that song another version. I remember in “Ghostbusters 2”, they had Run DMC do a remix version. Will they give the theme another version for “G III”???

I wouldn’t be surprised that since the 4 Ghostbusters will be all female, they’ll give the Ray Parker Jr. song a pop music version like have Lady Gaga or Rihanna sing a version. Give the version electric beats and sounds. They’ll make this version that’ll sound like the current pop music of today.

I do hope they keep the original theme, though. We’ll have to wait and see what they’re gonna do with the theme song.


About Melissa McCarthy as a Ghostbuster…

Bill Murray spoke about “Ghostbusters III” again and he revealed his choices for the 4 female Ghostbusters. Sorry to say but I don’t like Bill’s choices.

I may have picked Melissa McCarthy but I think to myself and I’m literally starting to have second thoughts about her as a Ghostbuster. Do you really wanna see a large 500 lb. woman in a Ghostbusters suit??? Plus, she is in her 40’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if they get her anyway since the new director for “Ghostbusters III” already worked with her in the past.

I’m still sticking with my own choices:

-Michelle Rodriguez
-Ronda Rousey
-Jennifer Lawrence
-Milla Jovovich


I think the female Ghostbusters should be hot and sexy if they want it to work.

It looks like Bill is not gonna be in it. Even though Bill has been saying positive stuff about the new “Ghostbusters” lately maybe he just feels he couldn’t make it without his friend, Harold Ramis?

Will I see the new “Ghostbusters” when it comes out??? Not sure yet. I’ll wait to see a trailer first and then I’ll decide.

I am a huge “Ghostbusters” fan, though. First one is a masterpiece, second one wasn’t good.


More on “Ghostbusters III”…

I was just doing a little research on “Ghostbusters III” and the reason that Dr. Ray Stantz won’t be able to catch ghosts by himself is that it isn’t only because of his age. It’s just that he has knee problems, he might be blind in one eye, he’ll be having hip issues and he’ll be too fat to fit into his Ghostbusters jumpsuit. Of course, things could always change with the script re-writes and all that stuff.

As you read here: http://ghostbusters.wikia.com/wiki/Ghostbusters_III

… the original idea was that they were gonna go for three young men and one young girl in their 20’s so obviously they changed it to 4 young girls instead.

Even though Bill Murray still hasn’t said anything on whether or not he’s gonna reprise his role as Peter Venkman, never say never. There’s still plenty of time for him to respond still. Dan said Bill is always welcome when he wants to. So if Bill says yes, it’ll probably be for a short role. I really do hope Bill signs on. It’ll definitely help the box office if he agrees to appear. Bill is just like the rest of us, he wants the third one to be good. He’s taking the script seriously. I hope Bill goes for it… we’ll have to wait and see. That’ll be cool to see Ray and Peter train the 4 girls together.

I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. I’m only a fan of the first one. The first one is a classic. I didn’t like the 2nd one that much. The only scene I liked in “Ghostbusters 2” was when Louis Tully tried to defend the Ghostbusters by saying something like, “I was taken over by a dog and they helped me” and Egon responded with, “Very good Louis. Short but pointless”. That was the best scene of the whole movie but other than that, the film was trash. I can understand why people would be skeptical of GIII.

When Ray Stantz returns, he’ll be the same old crazy Dr. Ray. When the girls catch their first ghost, I can see Ray going nuts like, “WOW, that’s great!!!” Like he always does. Even though Dan haven’t played the character in a long time, I’m sure he’s gonna kill it. Dan did a great job voicing the character for the Video Game so he will be able to play the character well with no problem.

I like Dan Aykroyd. Always did. The guy is a legend and a comic genius. I’ve always admired his speed-talking skills which is what he’s most famous for.

Hopefully, they’ll finally start filming “GIII” in 2015. They’ve been wanting to do this movie since the 2nd one and glad they’re finally getting closer to finally making it.


“Ghostbusters III” is still happening…

Look like Sony studios and Ivan Reitman are still committed to making “Ghostbusters III” despite the death of Harold Ramis. That’s okay. I’m all for them continuing on ’cause I’m pretty sure that’s what Harold would have wanted. He would have wanted them to move forward without him. They’ve been planning this movie for years and they just can’t cancel the project after all that hard work and money spent. Like the saying goes, “The show must go on”… the same for this film.

There is a final script written for this film but it’s gonna be re-written some due to Harold’s sudden passing. Welp, look like we’re gonna have a dead Ghostbuster in the film. Will Egon somehow make a cameo appearance as a CGI ghost? Wouldn’t surprise me if that’s what they’re going for.

The original Ghostbusters was only gonna be in this film briefly, anyways. This film was meant to pass the torch to younger Ghostbusters… that’s the idea for this film, I think.

Even though, Bill Murray has a part in “Ghostbusters III” it is still NOT yet known whether he wants in or not.

I know a “Ghostbusters III” is pretty debatable but I think a 3rd film deserves to happen. Give them a chance, ya know? “Ghostbusters 2” wasn’t a great film at all, and this trilogy deserves to end with a better film. I thought they did a great job with the video game. “Ghostbusters – The Video Game” was excellent stuff. I think they’ll do a good job with the 3rd film too.

Dan Aykroyd still loves the Ghostbusters. You can tell he has a lot of passion for this. He badly wants to get this movie made. Watch all of his interviews talking about Ghostbusters III. He’s pretty committed to this project too. With that being said, I would love GIII to happen. I’m intrigued on how they’re gonna pull this off.



Ghostbusters III, questions that needs answers…

While the original actors of Ghostbusters are aging, do you think they’ll still be able to play their characters well? If you played, “Ghostbusters – The Video Game” like I did, you’ll know that they still have what it takes to play their characters. They still have the voices down pretty well. If you don’t think they can, play the video game. You’d be surprised to hear yourself that they still got it. Even Bill Murray played Peter Venkmen well in the video game. I think they’ll do fine with the new film.

What I’m a little worried about is the script. I hope it won’t be another “Ghostbusters II”, that film was horrible. We need Slimer to return and hopefully Staypuff as well. As far as Vigo The Carpathian, I hope they don’t make him return ’cause that was a terrible villain.

We hope for a Ghostbusters film that is much like the first one. The first Ghostbusters film was a classic. I’ll always love that film so much. I’ll never get tired of it. What we need for “GIII” is a celebration of the first film. The Video Game did a pretty good job at that.

We want “GIII” to be scary as hell, along with the comedy mixed into it like the first one. We don’t want it to be a family film like the second movie was. I’m fine with the new young Ghostbusters taking over for III, I just want a good script and I want good casting with the young Ghostbusters.

Like I always say, I’m all for another Ghostbusters movies ’cause it deserves another film to close out the trilogy. There will probably be a new Ghostbusters trilogy after this for young Ghostbusters to take over and the original cast can retire after the 3rd movie.

Just like I hope Warner Bros. does a good job with Zack Snyder’s “Man Of Steel”, I hope Sony does a good job with “Ghostbusters III” as well.

Maybe the next film can be successful without Bill Murray, who knows. I’m not getting my hopes up. They need him. I’m sure Bill will respond to this soon, he’s just waiting for the right time ’cause he knows the media will be all over it. He’s making his careful decision and thinking things over. He may be a pain in the ass about it, but even Bill wants the next movie to be good like all of us. If you think about it, we are not alone, even Bill is worried about the next film.

I wish them luck on “Ghostbusters III”. Since they maybe start shooting next year, they’re going to start casting soon. We know for sure that Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Harold Ramis and Sigourney Weaver are returning…but we haven’t yet heard from Bill Murray and Rick Moranis. It would be great if everybody returns. Lets hope they make “GIII” a great film where we could all walk out of the theater with smiles on our faces.
