ghostbusters

For whatever strange reason, Ghostbusters 3 news just won’t stay dead. It feels like we’ve been reporting on every single thing related to the long-gestating sequel, and nothing has come to fruition. The sequel is actually more in limbo than it is gestating considering a script hasn’t been written yet, but it is one film that refuses to die. Part of that is thanks to Dan Aykroyd, who is doing all he can to keep Ghostbusters 3 news alive.

Now a new rumor, which comes from Aykroyd himself, yet again, says that Ghostbusters could go far beyond just a trilogy. It could have a universe in the vein of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Thirty years ago, I was a rambunctious 2-year-old who only knew Sesame Street and PBS. Thirty years later, I’m a crazed movie geek with an overflowing DVD collection who spouts movie lines at will. One of the quintessential films that my friends and I grew up watching, re-watching, and quoting was Ghostbusters, Ivan Reitman’s comedy of bungling scientists and real-life spooks in NYC. Imagine the euphoria upon finding that we thirtysomethings now have a chance to view one of our favorites in theaters for the first time!

To commemorate the 30-year anniversary of its debut in the Summer of 1984, Ghostbusters is back in theaters starting today for ONE WEEK ONLY! Who you gonna call?

The Long Lost Bill Murray Film ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ Surfaces Online

Bill Murray

In the 39 years since it went on the air for the first time, Saturday Night Live has seen its talented cast, writers, and production staff go on to conquer Hollywood and forever change the landscape of modern comedy filmmaking. Some of the movies they made were classics, some were pretty good, a few were downright awful and excruciating to watch, and most were simply blah. But at least they saw a legitimate release in one form or another so that viewers could make their own judgments.

Such wasn’t the case with Nothing Lasts Forever, an oddly endearing science-fiction romantic comedy adventure written and directed by Tom Schiller, a filmmaker beloved for making such classic SNL short subjects as La Dolce Gilda and Don’t Look Back in Anger who would later go on to direct over 500 humorous television commercials for his own company, Schillervision. Despite having never received an official release in theaters or on home video in the three decades since it was originally scheduled to premiere and subsequently buried by its home studio, the film has found its way in full onto YouTube.

You can watch Nothing Lasts Forever here below.

‘Tammy’ Trailer: An Angry Melissa McCarthy Channels Shia LeBeouf

Melissa McCarthy stars in Ben Falcone's Tammy

Road trip comedies aren’t entirely original, although the characters try to make each and every adventure their own. Melissa McCarthy will be starring in her very own road trip comedy, directed by her husband, Ben Falcone. In it, McCarthy plays as a recently fired fast food employee who finds out that her husband has been cheating on her, and her only method of coping is to go on a road trip with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon).

Again, not completely original, but the star power is there, which give us some hope that it will be at least a mild success. Hit the jump to see the trailer.

Ghostbusters

At the time it looked like Ghostbusters 3 wasn’t even going to happen. Developmental problems continually stalled the project, and the franchise’s biggest and most important piece, Bill Murray, wasn’t even interested, in reprising his role.

But there was some news that lead us to believe that this project wasn’t completely dead. Earlier this year Etan Cohen was brought in to rewrite the script. That was followed by Dan Aykroyd saying that filming would begin early next year.

Dan Aykroyd Confirms Bill Murray Will Not Be In ‘Ghostbusters 3’

Ghostbusters

This endless “will Bill Murray be in Ghostbusters 3” tug-of-war was bound to end sooner or later. Just be glad that it is ending sooner and not later, because today may be the day that we hear the last of this kind of news.

Dan Aykroyd has confirmed that Billy Murray will not reprise his role as Peter Venkman in the third Ghostbusters film.

Murray has been teetering back and forth on reprising his role as Venkman, but he’s always leaned towards not coming back. Let’s just hope that this will be the last we hear of this.

Dan Aykroyd Wasn’t Lying; ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Brings In Etan Cohen To Rewrite Script

Ghostbusters

No matter how hard we try, we can’t get away from any news about Ghostbusters 3. A couple of weeks back Ghostbusters star we reported that Dan Aykroyd was saying that they were bringing in a new writer for the film. Now we didn’t know if this was lip service to an always nagging question or if it was true. And if it was true, would they start with a fresh story or would they use the script written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

Now we can confirm a couple of things. First, yes, they are bringing in a new writer. Men In Black III and Tropic Thunder scribe Etan Cohen (not to be confused with Ethan Coen) has been brought in to do a couple of rewrites on the script that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky wrote back in 2008.

Dan Aykroyd Says ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Has A New Writing Staff

Ghostbusters

If you thought the script issues for Men in Black III were bad, then you haven’t heard of the kinds of issues that the Ghostbusters 3 script is going through. One of the driving forces that is preventing this movie from happening is the claim that Bill Murray didn’t like the script written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. In fact, this issue dragged on for so long, Sony had to put it on hold until they could get it right.

But in a surprise move, Murray said he was willing to give Ghostbusters 3 another go. Well it appears that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky listened, or Sony did, as there is a new writing staff on board that will pen the script that will hopefully become Ghostbusters 3.

‘Ghostbusters 3’ Officially Loses Bill Murray, But Will the Movie Still Be Made?

Ghostbusters

Much like the R-rated Spawn movie Todd McFarlane keeps saying is going to happen but most likely never will, Ghostbusters 3 is a movie that is now apparently being kept barely alive through the sheer force of will belonging to the most vocal of its proponents, Dan Aykroyd. Ivan Reitman, the director of the first two Ghostbusters movies, and Harold Ramis, Aykroyd’s co-star and co-writer on the original 1984 comedy blockbuster and its less-successful 1989 sequel, have openly expressed interest in doing a third movie, while Bad Teacher scribes Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg have written a screenplay that would feature the original Ghostbusters passing their proton packs on to successors who would be younger and more accessible to modern movie comedy audiences.
