So direct to video then?

If there is a list of sequels no one wants to see, this one is right up there, along with Scarface 2 and Sex in the City 3.

No it's not.

I love Bill Murray like a father.


This makes sense if you know me.

No Bill Murray? Try to imagine all life as you know it stopping instantaneously and every molecule in your body exploding at the speed of light.

I'm happy to watch Bill Murray in every Wes Anderson movie. Couldn't give a toss about Ghost Busters.
 
2012-10-19 09:17:07 AM
Director Ivan Reitman had been committed to a comedy by the name of Draft Day, which Kevin Costner was set to be involved in.

.....What decade is this?

Well, with current trends of nostalga to the eighties and ninties, if it is a huge hit, at least he can't claim they shut him out of the film.
 
2012-10-19 09:19:30 AM
If only for morbid curiosity at this point. Please, please go ahead and let hollywood do it already. I'm tired of the maybe/yes/no/Bill Murray wha? BS. Just make the movie already.

And I'll one of the first in line to pay for it like a sucker too. Not because it'll be good, bad, or indifferent. But because Ghostbusters was the first movie I ever saw in the theaters, and I owe it to the franchise to be a loyal fan and bend over and let Hollywood rape my childhood like it did to so many others, with things like Transformer cinematic abortions, Star Wars Prequels, and when they took away my crystal pepsi.

/I really miss crystal pepsi

It'll join the ranks of classic sequels like:

Caddyshack 2
Dumb & Dumberer
Road House 2
Robocop 3
The Neverending Story 2
Mean Girls 2
Teen Wolf Too
Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights
Speed 2
Grease 2
and
Batman and Robin

OMG. I totally nerded out and came up with my first fanfic idea, nonporn related..... buffy and the ghostbusters help Angel save LA. Sorry. I'm not that person. I'm just so happy we get a new ghostbusters. Dan was always my favorite anyway.

Bill's brother Eddie, however, is still available for the role.

As long as they do it the same justice that Blues Brothers 2000 did for the original Blues Brothers, I think we'll all be satisfied.

/Blues Brothers? They still owe you money, fool.
 
2012-10-19 09:43:53 AM
It'd work with a younger cast. Put Egon and Ray in the role of owners / mentors. Explain Peter and Dana ran off and married with a family and he retired. If they don't include Winston, he did the same thing.

Or that he left, became a preacher, gave up on the whole fighting ghosts business, then whatever calamity they write in for the main plot, he could come back and don his proton pack again because the Good Book ain't workin'.

Well, let's say this Twinkie represents the normal amount of movie-goers in the New York area. Based on this script, it would be a Twinkie one Planck length long, weighing approximately the same as an electron.

No need to imagine just remember how good Blues Brothers 2000 was with out John Balushi.

/Maybe Brian Doyle Murray might be available.
 
2012-10-19 10:00:52 AM
Mo Murray? So what. Ray was the heart of the Ghostbusters.
 
2012-10-19 10:09:50 AM
"Director Ivan Reitman had been committed to a comedy by the name of Draft Day, which Kevin Costner was set to be involved in. But that film has now been delayed, and it's cleared the path for pre-production work to begin on Ghostbusters 3."

As I skimmed the article, I ALMOST thought that Kevin Costner was replacing Bill Murray. Underpants were soiled.
 
2012-10-19 10:09:56 AM
C'mon Bill. It can't be worse than Garfield
 
2012-10-19 10:11:52 AM
I wasn't going to bother with it, Murray or no Murray. I gave up on the 80s nostalgia craze after Crystal Skull. I respect Murray for not wanting to be involved. GB 2 was bad enough, and the crap that Akroyd has been willing to do is atrocious.

All that said, if they are going to do it, they should hire Chevy Chase to play Murray's role just for the lulz.

Ghostbusters wasn't all that great. Bill Murray was the only good part of that movie. So I'm sure a sequel 30 years later without him in it will be incredibly awesome
 
2012-10-19 10:17:41 AM
I wonder if Bill Murray signed over rights to his likeness in relation to Ghostbusters. I think it would be chuckle worthy if he came back as one of the CGI ghosts.

Now that I think about it, you can't load up the CGI enough to impress anyone today.
 
2012-10-19 10:21:15 AM

jj325: Ghostbusters wasn't all that great. Bill Murray was the only good part of that movie looked emotionally-detached and there only for the money .


And I held that opinion the first time - watching in back in the 80's - with my totally-rad mullet.
 
2012-10-19 10:47:42 AM
I'll believe it when I'm sitting in the theater for it.

/and even then, I'm probably not gonna like it

In the first film, that was the joke. The guy is surrounded by all manner of psychokinetic freak nasties and he's completely low-key about it.

In the second film, yeah, I think he genuinely didn't want to be there. So much so that he never wanted to do another one and still hasn't changed his mind about it.

/they should scrap the whole live-action idea and just have Genndy Tartakovsky revive the animated Real Ghostbusters series on Cartoon Network. There's way better odds of success going that route, especially since the old toyline is a hot nostalgia property right now.
 
2012-10-19 10:56:35 AM
Can't they just throw a bunch of cast parties in between filming scenes. Maybe Bill Murray will crash one of the parties and agree to a cameo

EdgeRunner: they should scrap the whole live-action idea and just have Genndy Tartakovsky revive the animated Real Ghostbusters series on Cartoon Network.


YES!
Recently watched a few episodes, while the animation didn't hold up too well, the stories were awesome.
Especially "Collect Call of Cthulhu"
 
2012-10-19 10:59:49 AM
They should book-end it with the "new" Evil Dead remake. You know, the one where there's no Ash.

Start a whole new trend.
 
2012-10-19 11:03:10 AM
Right. Because no one in hollywood can play a smart ass who doesn;t give a shiat and wants to get laid.

He's completely irreplaceable.
 
2012-10-19 11:05:32 AM
Not a big deal.

"Where's Venkman?"
"Running for Mayor in ______________"

End scene.
Just have them appear like they did in Extreme Ghostbusters. Show up, hand off the keys and go.

Yeah, even back in the day, the animation was piss poor. But the writing was surprisingly sharp for a kid's cartoon (at least until J. Michael Straczynski dropped out and it turned into the Slimer show). I'd love to see a quality return of RG, creamhorn-hair Egon and all, and it would receive a far more excited reception than the collective "Meh" the ill-advised reunion attempt keeps getting.

Agreed. I'd have switched gears to ignoring the old cast within a year of any of them being recalcitrant. It's a fun universe, and a decent writer could easily come up with some new stories in it. I know, hurrhurr hollywierd sux no good writers, remakes derp. Whatever. I have no problem with series or sequels, as long as they're telling new stories. Most of them lack the impact of the original even if they bring something new to the table, but I like seeing universes expand.

Hey, what's wrong with Teen Wolf Too?
It maintained the integrity of the original Teen Wolf while exploring new artistic ground as its own film.

Five stars!

The video game was awesome, and it was written by Aykroyd and Ramis, and acted by the original cast. So why wouldn't another thing written by them, and acted by them be JUST AS COOL?

I think the real issue is that so many of you don't want to see the Ghostbusters portrayed as older guys, because it will make YOU feel old.
 
2012-10-19 11:17:26 AM
I'll watch it if they do us a favor and just say what we're all thinking: Dr. Ray Stantz and Dr. Egon Spengler are now known as Fat Ray and Fat Egon.
Example:

Do you have any hobbies, Fat Egon?
I, Fat Egon, collect spores, mold, and fungus.

and

I looked at the trap, Fat Ray.

That's a big twinkie, Fat Ray and Fat Egon.

Also, during the ghost-catching montage set to Ray Parker, Jr.'s music, instead of getting a BJ from a ghost, Fat Ray will look for his penis.

Either that or we'd rather have NEW stuff to watch. But hey, if you're happy with the nostalgia thing, more power to you.

A Ghostbusters flick without Murray is akin to a bicycle without wheels,handlebars and a seat.

I like Bill Murray but if he's going to sit at home like a whiny biatch, then let him.
I'd happily see another Ghostbusters movie with whoever is left of the original cast who is willing and some decent new actors/comedians. If it's as least as good as MIB3, no complaints.

No, the real issue is that no one has any faith the project won't be a screaming disaster like Caddyshack 2 (another project which Murray wisely chose to sit out). If this was an age issue, instead of the majority of fans saying "This won't work without Bill", they'd be saying "This won't work unless the entire original cast is dumped." Most of us would be perfectly happy with a Grumpy Old Ghostbusters film if it was fun and entertaining, but the odds are just stacked too heavily against success.

This made me laugh a little too hard.

"What twinkie, Fat Winston?"
"Goddammit, I'm trying to illustrate a point, Fat Ray! Stop eating the twinkies!"

My ideal ghostbusters premise:

Years have gone by, the busters are old and still trying to make a living doing their thing. Sadly, lots of imitators and competitors have sprouted up around New York, capitalizing on the ghost craze. These groups are hipper, younger and more popular. Their proton packs look like they were designed by apple. Chief among them are a group comprised of Andy Samberg (The hip face of the group), Chevy Chase (the evil conman who doesn't believe in ghosts), and Amy Poehler (the new-age hippie who thinks ghosts just need to be in balance with their chi)

The old busters and the competitors clash on several occasions until they have to come together to save new York once again.

meh.. call me when they make a groundhog day 2 and the only way for Jessica Biel to move on is to learn how to please a man sexually in 25 seconds using only her tongue.
