Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

Aykroyd talked about "Ghostbusters III" a bit again providing an update. He talks about about Ray and Egon's status and that they are doing a "handing of the torch" type of movie. As always I'll believe it when I see it.

Those types of movies are always so iffy, unless it has a really great concept, cast and writing that doesn't make it feel contrived, so I'm not a big fan of passing the torch.

So, basically he's saying the exact same thing he's been parroting since at least 1999. Move along, nothing to see her.

Alternatively ... Indiana, let it go.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

I'm not overly keen on passing the torch movies either. And I really don't expect this movie to be made anyhow. The first was great, maybe I'd even consider it a "classic" but found the second disappointing and, after all this time, I could care less if they make a third.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

I loved the first, and enjoyed the second. The video game was neat, and I liked the cartoon, too. That said, if they do a "passing of the torch" movie, I hope it's good, because Ghostbusters without the Ghostbusters? Hell no. There's a reason why the formula worked as it did.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

Yeah this is pretty much Ackroyd trying to tout the movie. I don't blame him him for talking about it in this manner since he constantly gets asks about GBIII. I still remember a few months ago that stated everything was locked up and green lit and filming was supposed to commence this summer lol.

Fans will let this go, when Dan does.

He's been saying "we have a great script, we're ready to go" for more than a decade. Hell, even Ramis said in April of 2010 that the plan was to be shooting by the end of that summer for release this year. They can say they're making it until they're green in the face, but they're still pouring all this effort into a movie that hasn't even been greenlit for pre-production by Sony, which is still trying to get rid of Ivan Reitman. Until we see SAG casting calls and filming dates, there's no movie and I hope there never is one. (And anyone who's followed me here for the ten-plus years I've been a member knows that I love the franchise with a passion I devote to nothing else, even my wife.)

The other thing people need to remember is that Aykroyd is just short of being legitimately crazy.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

Yeah, this would have been fine about 10 years ago, but the window of opportunity on this one is slipping by as they get older, and anything we get now would just likely be a disappointment, a bit like Indiana Jones 4. In short, we don't want a microwave dinner when a home cooked meal is available and anything less would be a disappointment.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

I mean, Aykroyd said in that interview that Ray is blind in one eye, so he can't drive the car, and with his knee problems, he can't carry the proton pack. And Egon is too fat to fit into the pack's harness. God knows what's going on with Winston or Venkman. (And if Aykroyd says they're moving ahead with or without Murray, that essentially confirms that Eisenberg and Stupnitsky basically did little more than a rewrite of Hellbent, which Aykroyd was pushing as recently as 2007.)

I'm sorry, but that's basically taking the idea of "I'm too old for this shit" and cranking it all up to ridiculous levels. Alternatively, we shouldn't be laughing at these characters -- we should be laughing with them. But that kind of shit is, unfortunately, what we should expect from the writers of Year One.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

He is right about one thing (well, potentially). Ghostbusters as a franchise can be bigger than one individual. I think the concept could work very well with a new cast, but I don't think a movie would be an avenue for that concept.

What Aykroyd is proposing sounds like it would make a great pilot for a Ghostbusters series.

Re: Aykroyd Comments on Murray, Ghostbusters 3! Working on Script w/Ra

I am a fan of the concept of Ghostbusters, but the execution has always left me wanting. I know I'm in the minority here, but I would love a passing the torch film to reshape the franchise. All I want is for the original cast to go on one last adventure before handing the proton packs to the next generation.

Just who would they be passing the torch to? Ryan Reynolds? Jack Black? Adam Sandler? Jason Segel? Jonah Hill? Seth Rogen? Thanks, but no thanks.
