Original “Ghostbusters” cast returning to reprise their roles in Ghostbusters III but will Annie Potts and Rick Moranis return as well, hopefully?

Yes, pretty much the whole gang of the Ghostbusters cast are coming back for Jason Reitman’s “Ghostbusters III”. Yes, Sigourney Weaver is coming back as Dana Barrett, Bill Murray coming back as Dr. Peter Venkman, Dan Aykroyd coming back as Dr. Ray Stantz and Ernie Hudson coming back as Winston Zeddemore.

Only Ghostbuster that can’t return is obviously Harold Ramis who was Dr. Egon Spengler and Harold passed away in 2014. I’m glad “GIII” is finally moving forward but it still won’t be the same without Egon, though.

Now I’m wondering if Annie Potts will return as the Ghostbusters secretary Janine and wonder if Rick Moranis would come out of acting retirement to reprise his role as Louis Tully. I can see Annie coming back maybe but Rick? We’ll have to wait and see on that one. It would be awesome if Louis Tully did come back ’cause that character was what helped make the first two Ghostbusters movie entertaining.

I didn’t see the all-female reboot directed by Paul Feig and I don’t plan on seeing that film at all. I haven’t even touched it and still haven’t seen it. Don’t want to.

Now that we have a more appropriate Ghostbusters movie in the works, I’ll probably see “Ghostbusters III” if the trailers look good enough.

I’m a huge Ghostbusters fan. Have been all my life. The first one and the original was one of my all-time favorite movies. The second one was pretty good but the writing could have been better.

I wonder what the plot for “Ghostbusters III” is gonna be about? It’s probably gonna be the same plot Dan Aykroyd has been talking about for years… a passing of the torch kind of story. It’s probably gonna be about Ray, Peter and Winston teaching up and coming recruits on how to be a Ghostbuster. I’m sure we’ll see Slimer back and I’m sure we’ll see Staypuff back, but I’m sure the film will have new ghosts and new villains.

I’m hoping Jason don’t disappoint with this film. I’m sure he’s getting a lot of help and advice from his father, Ivan Reitman.

Some of you may say that Ghostbusters shouldn’t continue without Harold but this is a new movie franchise and series. It’s probably gonna continue on and on kind of like James Bond, Star Wars and Star Trek. Ghostbusters is definitely a franchise along those lines.

Even though Sony is continuing on without Harold, I’m sure the film will give Harold a tribute in some way. I bet Egon’s ghost will make a cameo appearance if anything. That will probably happen.

“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.
