Re: Bill Murray Confirms Ghostbusters III Rumor

The last I heard is that the computer game would be the only further Ghostbusters sequel we would ever see.

And, really, The Video Game was pretty weak in the writing department. "Pull my finger! I, Vigo, command you!"
Thank you! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks this. The game was okay (in terms of story), but I don't get the slavish love it got. The writing felt more like it was from an episode of the cartoon series than the movies (not put down on the cartoon, but the tone was very different from either of the films - and I was wishing it was more like the films).

That was before GB3 got its latest revival.

Sierra's -- followed by Atari -- public relations department spun Ghostbusters: The Video Game as an unofficial Ghostbusters III, written by Aykroyd and Ramis. Aykroyd played into this with an interview in the magazine, Game Informer, in which he said that he viewed the game as Ghostbusters III. (Though Ramis debunked that with his aforementioned NYT interview.)

This is no longer true, however: Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, of The Office and Year One, were signed last year to create a script for Ghostbusters III under the supervision of Harold Ramis. Their initial pitch was enough to convince Ivan Reitman to return to the fold as director, and Ernie Hudson to return as Zeddemore. Sigourney Weaver was subsequently persuaded to appear, as well.

I'm just terrified of the movie, because Year One, written by those idiots and supervised / directed by Ramis, was one of the most horrible films I've ever seen.

Re: Bill Murray Confirms Ghostbusters III Rumor

Year One was incredibly disappointing but I hold out hope that Ghostbusters III will be different. I've always wanted to read "Ghosbusters III:Hellbent" and a few years ago found a fan fic spec script that was just plain awful. I like the concept of "Hellbent" just not the execution of the story. When did Signourney come back? I thought she stated during her Avatar press junkets last year that she wasn't involved?

I think the idea of him being a ghost is absurd. None of the ghosts shown in the movie have been shown to have any level of inteligence of "sentience."

Re: Bill Murray Confirms Ghostbusters III Rumor

^But wasn't he a Godly Wizard or something?
While I enjoyed the game as a game and a nostalgic flashback to the movies it was a pretty piss poor script and would not imo a good movie not make.
I can't say I'm looking forwardf to this even now that its in pre-production but I would love to be wrong here.

Timby May I inquire as to the fallout between Ramis and Murray, I haven't heard of that before.

Vigo, as well as Zull, Gozer, Vince were all special cases as they were demigods or much "higher" supernatural beings than the mundane ghosts the Ghostbusters likely saw everyday.

For an example of "humanoid" ghosts look at the Scoleri Brothers.

They really, really didn't get along on Groundhog Day. Murray's feeling was that the film should be a deep, philosophical drama, while Ramis (rightfully so) insisted that Murray play the role as written, as a comedy. This led to a lot of heated exchanges on the set, and they didn't speak to one another for more than ten years.

They're going to put even more stuff on the roof and it won't be able to go around corners really fast without tipping over.

Anyway, I'm not too thrilled with this news. I was hoping that a big enough backlash could make them scrap this idea, but it looks like it's pretty much set in stone now.

On a side note, I wasn't happy to hear that Rick Moranis won't be back.

I thought Rick Moranis was coming back and only said no to the game?
