‘Ghostbusters 3’ To Use 3D; ‘Gremlins 3’ To Follow Suit?

Gremlins

The folks over at MarketSaw have been quite busy as of late. Not one but two of their tippy-top inside sources have chirped some information about Ghostbusters 3 and Gremlins 3 both wanting to join the “cool kids” of this 3D epidemic.

When it comes to Ghostbuster 3, we’ve heard over and over that it was indeed being made and that the whole cast would be returning. We still have zero solid proof of any of this, but because we’ve heard it so often, it has evolved to semi-fact. A source from none other than George Lucas‘s Industrial Light & Magic has apparently whispered that the project is still moving full-steam ahead and that they’re also looking to shoot it in 3D. This is of course no shocking revelation; almost all movies these days are either developed around the technology or given the multi-dimensional makeover after-the-fact. If they are going to make another Ghostbusters, they might as well use this popular format to ensure a nice box office run.

As for Gremlins 3 rumors are also floating through the air again. Another source told MarketSaw that the third installment of this franchise is in the very early stages of development, but that it is being developed and that it will also take on a 3D appearance. While this is yet another unconfirmed project, we did hear from original director Joe Dante a while back who stated that he had heard they were making another film, so it is looking pretty likely. As Dante said back then, hopefully they stick with the puppets.

We recently wrote a little feature discussion about all of this 3D insanity (Read: The 3D Epidemic: When Does The Novelty Become The Standard & Is This What We Want?), so feel free to come and chime in with your thoughts!

  1. I think Ghostbusters in 3D would KICK @SS! Can imagine the ghosts transitioning between foreground and background, with brightly charged particle beams dancing wildly across the screen as the Ghostbusters try to reel them in. To me, sounds like a movie begging to be made in 3D! A natural fit for the medium. Gremlins 3D? Not so sure. I do agree with the puppets though. Would be a shame to be stuck with a CGI Gizmo, et al. Think the creatures would lose some of their charm.

  2. CGI would ruin gremlins, well for the actual gremlins anyway. Was watching jurassic park the other day and thought to myself ‘i still freaking love animatronics’.

  3. Having seen “Captain EO” at Disney World eons ago, with its bursts of lightbeams and other cool I.L.M. 3-D effects, I’m TOTALLY on-board with “Ghostbusters 3-D.” The Sta-Puft Marshmallow Man in 3-D would’ve been totally kickass, not to mention Slimer popping out of the screen!

    “Gremlins,” however, is another matter altogether. It’s sort of insulting that they’re pushing through with it without Dante, and I surmise 99.999% will be CGI. Those little puppets may have caused a myriad of on-set problems, but dammit, they STILL look good today! CG, 3-D Gremlins would just be too gimmicky and instantly dated. The only way I might warm to a third film/reboot in 3-D is if they go the horror movie route from the original script (which included the Gremlins eating all the customers in McDonalds but leaving the burgers untouched), though with the success they had marketing the original as a family film, it’s doubtful that WB will do that.
