Ghostbusters Logo Title

Sony already has a reboot of the 1984 classic Ghostbusters in the works, featuring an all-female cast of ‘busters in Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones, and Kate McKinnon, but it turns out that project is not their only plan with the franchise moving forward.

After years of rumors of a Ghostbusters 3 being developed by the guys behind the original eventually became the all-female reboot mentioned above, it’s being reported that Sony has actually created a new production company called, quite fittingly, Ghostcorps, led by original Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman and star Dan Aykroyd with the mission of finding branding opportunities based on the original.

Ghostbusters

As part of this year’s celebration of the 30th anniversary of Ghostbusters, some of the cast gathered for a reunion chat with Al Roker and Today, including Bill Murray.

Joining Murray was Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, Annie Potts, and director Ivan Reitman. Dan Aykroyd and Rick Moranis were not present, and of course Harold Ramis sadly passed away earlier this year.

You can watch a video of the reunited cast talking about the movie below.

ghostbusters

Ghostbusters, the paranormal, phenomenal spook comedy, which became one of the biggest successes and comedies of all time and spawned a rabid cult of fans in its wake, celebrates its 30th anniversary this week.

Directed by Ivan Reitman, and starring Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and the late Harold Ramis (the latter two co-wrote the script), Ghostbusters seemed to be the vehicle that crystallized everything about all of them. They had all worked together before — Murray and Aykroyd on SNL of course; Murray and Ramis in the army comedy Stripes, which was directed by Reitman, who Murray had also worked with on the misfits-are-in-charge of the Summer Camp comedy Meatballs — but the synergy that came on the screen with Ghostbusters was wholly apparent to all and, ultimately, became a film that spanned generations, and it was and is, a film that was for everyone and pandered to no one.

‘Lego Movie’ Directors In Talks For ‘Ghostbusters 3’

Ghostbusters

Ghostbusters 3, the sequel no one really wants to happen, is being made whether we like it or not. But as we reported yesterday it won’t have its original director at the helm. With Ivan Reitman departing the big chair to take on a producer’s role on the long-gestating supernatural comedy rebootquel, the job of directing GB3 will doubtlessly be filled by a younger director. Or if the latest rumors are based in truth, it will get two directors.

According to industry insider Nikki Finke, the latest candidates to direct Ghostbusters 3 are none other than the unbeatable team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. With a string of surprise live-action and animated blockbusters like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and most recently The Lego Movie to their credit, these guys are two of the hottest filmmakers working today.

‘Ghostbusters 3’ Loses Director Ivan Reitman; 2015 Start Still Planned

Ghostbusters

Speedbumps are nothing new on the long road traveled by Ghostbusters 3. The planned trilogy-maker has met many obstacles and delays over the years, and, at the moment, is still here. Say what you will about the movie, but it is most certainly determined.

The latest speedbump comes in the form of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters and its sequel and was attached to make the third installment. Reitman has decided to step down as director and let someone new take the wheel. He will, however, remain on the movie as a producer.

‘Ghostbusters 3′ Script To Be Updated Following Harold Ramis’ Death; Sequel Will Continue

Egon Spengler

A third Ghostbusters movie has been in the works for over twenty years now, with co-writer of the original film Dan Aykroyd continually trying to get the project off the ground and having the main cast of the films return in some capacity, including Harold Ramis, who portrayed Egon in the movies and was also a co-writer. Ramis sadly passed away on Monday, and now we’re already hearing that meetings at Sony are being planned to reconfigure the sequel’s plot to account for his death.

Ivan Reitman, who directed both the original Ghostbusters and the first sequel, is currently attached to direct the third installment, from a current script co-written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who were writers on The Office. In the most current version of the story, Ramis, Aykroyd, and Bill Murray would only make brief appearances in the film and whose characters would act in a baton-passing role to a new generation of Ghostbusters.

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.

Wait, What?! Eddie Murphy Playing Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito’s Brother In ‘Twins’ Sequel?

Twins

1988’s Twins is one of many guilty pleasures born of the ’80s that plenty of people have seen and enjoyed for what it is. It’s not a movie, however, that anyone ever expected to see a sequel for.

But we should all be familiar with the times we currently live in, and now, over two decades later, a sequel to Twins might just be heading our way.

And what’s even more unexpected? It appears as though the hopes for said sequel is to have Eddie Murphy play the third brother to the original’s oddball twins, returning stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny DeVito.

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.

Movie Review: No Strings Attached

No Strings AttachedNo Strings Attached
Directed by Ivan Reitman
Starring Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Kevin Kline, Olivia Thirlby, Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridges, Greta Gerwig, Mindy Kaling
Release date: January 21, 2011

Boy and girl are sitting on a bench underneath the moonlight, probably at some middle school dance or summer camp. They are taking a break from whatever festivity it is that they are attending. The boy looks fairly shy and nervous, anxious to get to a certain point. The girl is more opened it seems. She’s possibly thinking that the boy is going to ask for a kiss. Or maybe he will even act hastily and sneak one. This is such a wonderful set-up that evokes the impulses and feelings we feel at the ripe age of fourteen. But my naiveté works against me here. What wishful thinking on my behalf! What comes out of the boy’s mouth (a question that is usually asked to a prostitute) is well beyond his age and his image. And the girl, disturbingly, remains composed at the question. Can it be that he is addicted to sexual acts at this stage of his life and she desensitized by such pleads? What a demoralizing thought. But my senses should have been more alert for the dialogue used by these two kids. Hell, why should American comedy hold back any thing? Crude is what American comedy does best. And this is 2011, so we should come to expect this kind of humor, vulgarity, cheapness, and conventionality.
