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: Bill Murray says, “Ghostbusters 3” news is a bunch of crock, does that mean a third film is dead?

Bill Murray did a new interview with CQ magazine, and in the magazine, Bill, responds to “Ghostbusters 3” news that’s been hitting the internets. Bill’s response? He calls it a bunch of crock. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis been plugging in Ghostbusters 3 on the itnernet for months, and after all this time, Bill Murray squashes “Ghostbusters 3” news.

Sorry, Ghostbusters, fans. Looks like a G3 is never gonna happen 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: Rick Moranis confirms he’s returning as Louis Tully in “Ghostbusters 3″…

Rick Moranis did not do the voice overs of Louis Tully for “Ghostbusters – The Video Game”, but Rick has agreed to reprise his role for “Ghostbusters 3” live action film. Harold Ramis confirmed the news that Rick finally agreed to come back to Ghostbusters.

Although he said the original cast is coming back, there is still no word on whether or not Sigourney Weaver is returning because this article said nothing about her.

I’m sure we’ll hear from Sigourney soon on whether she wants in or not.

Report: Harold Ramis speaks out about “Ghostbusters 3” film, it’s still moving forward…

Harold Ramis speaks to MTV News about “Ghostbusters 3” film. He says it’s still happening and all 4 original Ghostbusters: Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson are still down to reprising their roles. Ramis says there is no final script yet, there isn’t even a first draft yet, but he says they are still doing the idea of the original Ghostbusters passing the torch to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. So this means after “Ghostbusters 3”, there will probably be a whole new “Ghostbusters” trilogy but with the young cast, and not the original stars.

As long as they don’t have Rob Pattison or Zac Efron in “Ghostbusters 3”, then it’ll be good.

For the young Ghostbusters, they should just have an unknown cast, no big name stars to play the younger Ghostbusters. Having an unknown cast for the young Ghostbusters will make them big stars. They should take that idea but I doubt they will, they probably would go for big names.

Report: Harold Ramis confirms Ghostbusters 3 film is definitely happening, original cast in talks of returning, and also Ivan Reitman may direct after all!!!

This is great news that the Ghostbusters 3 film is moving forward.

Harold Ramis himself sent a brief e-mail to confirm the news of the new Ghostbusters film that just got the greenlight. How did Columbia find the Office writers? Well since the Office writers are currently working on Ramis’s new directed film “Year One”, I’m pretty sure Harold himself reccomended those writers to Columbia for the GB-3 film. Ramis says he is in negotiations with Ivan Reitman to return back to directing the next Ghostbusters film. That’s also great news!!!!

We all know that Bill Murray doesn’t really want to reprise his role in a live action film, but Ramis said in the article he’s trying to talk him into being involved on some level. Maybe give Peter Venkman a small role or something. Ramis also announced that he and the Ghostbusters gang are finished doing voice overs for the new video game. There are definitely good possibilities that Ramis may return as Egon, Bill return as Peter, Dan return as Ray, and Ernie return as Winston for the film too.

More on it here:

wOOt! We’re gonna get the Ghostbusters video game and new movie both at the same time! Sweet!

As for who the new Ghostbusters will be that the original cast will pass the torch along too, I don’t agree with actor choices in that blog.

My choices for the new Ghostbusters: Ben Stiller, Rick Moranis, Sean William Scott, Dwayne Johnson

Thought: Would Harold Ramis direct “Ghostbusters 3” if Ivan Reitman isn’t down?

We heard the shocking news of Columbia making a third “Ghostbusters” movie. Finally getting the film off the ground.

If Ivan Reitman isn’t down for directing, Columbia should definitely go for Harold Ramis to helm “Ghostbusters 3”.

Ramis has a lot of directing experience. He’s directed the first “Caddyshack” film, the first “National Lampoon’s Vacation” film, he’s also directed “Groundhog Day”, “Analyze This” and ” Analyze That”, “Bedazzled”, “Multiplicity” and “The Ice Harvest”.

I think Harold Ramis himself would do a great job directing a Ghostbusters movie. They should definitely get Ramis to helm the next one. It’ll be a smart move.
