‘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.

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.

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.

Celebrity Russian Generals #20

Looking forward to a possible Ghostbusters 3? Well, that’s more than can be said for one Bill Murray.

According to The National Enquirer, Murray has finally tossed down the gauntlet when it comes to this film, and apparently sent his co-stars Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis a shredded copy of the film’s script, with a note that read “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”

‘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.

‘Ghostbusters 3’ Will Be Directed By None Other Than Ivan Reitman!

Ghostbusters 3

For as long as we’ve known about the possibility of Ghostbusters 3 happening, we’ve wondered whether original director Ivan Reitman would return to helm the trilogy maker. It’s been loosely confirmed many times that all of the original cast members would be returning though people like Rick Moranis and Annie Potts are still unknowns. And on top of that, writer/star Harold Ramis has already claimed that a 2011 release was happening.

Well folks, it wasn’t in any type of big or flashy unveiling, but while speaking to MTV on the red carpet for the National Board of Review in NYC, Reitman confirmed that he would indeed be directing the movie. Reitman explained that a draft was in the bank and that a second was being worked on right now, but didn’t say much when asked if he was in fact directing; he simply said “Yes” and that he “hopes to start shooting in this next year,” which is more than enough for us to be excited. Ivan hasn’t had the best of films recently, and he needs to slam dunk one here to keep up with his son Jason Reitman, who at the moment can do no wrong in the eyes of many.
