    You know, I'm looking forward to this. Sure it will not be as good as the first one, but hell I'd like to see at least one Ghostbusters flick in theaters in my life.

    ON TOPIC: If the script is decent enough, Akyroyd and Ramis will sign on. If it sucks in the least, they ALL will pass. Also, I never really got into any of the Ghostbusters animated stuff. It was a little after my first-run cartoon days.

    WAY OFF TOPIC: Kelso's name and avatar got me wondering: Which of the following do you think was more likely an ancestor of Lee Kelso?

    Tucker because of the resemblance, or Michael Kelso because of the family trait of folding one's arms while being photographed? :D

    It's rhetorical. Moving on ...

    Good GOD that would be horrible. It would almost make me hate the original movie just for being an inspiration for that.

    But Ghostbusters starring Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman could actually work...

    I was just about to say it would be cool to see Mythbusters vs. Ghostbusters.

    This thread is useless to me until JKTim has posted in it.

    I think that could LOL, though they'd have to get Grant, Tory, and Kari in there somehow.

    Let's see... Jamie as Egon, Adam as Ray, Tory as Peter, Grant as Winston... I don't see Kari as Janine, since she's more active in the team than that. So not an exact parallel.

    I need to revise my Ghostbusters remake cast, with all apologies to Dule Hill (who doesn't deserve to be lumped in with the rest of them and probably wouldn't be offered the role anyway). And no one even hires Tara Reid anymore, so...

    Ashton Kutcher as Peter Venkman
    Freddie Prinze, Jr. as Egon Spengler
    Chris Klein as Ray Stantz
    Brittany Snow as Dana Barrett
    Rob Schneider as Louis Tully
    Carmen Electra as Janine Melnitz
    Chevy Chase as The Mayor
    with Xzibit as Winston Zeddmore
    and Sean William Scott as Walter Peck

    If I may recommend some even more horrid people, I suggest Paris Hilton play Dana Barrett and switch Brett Ratner with Uwe Boll and have John Logan & Akiva Goldsman do a polish on the Friedberg and Seltzer script, and we may very well have the most awful piece of crap ever produced :bolian:
