Yes indeed, there is new information regarding Ghostbusters 3, including a new character, casting and plenty more to sink your teeth into. Who ya gonna call? Nobody right now! You’re going to click on into this article and find out what your favorite ectoplasm-covered heroes are up to.
The first bit of info comes from an article in Vanity Fair: Oscar, the son of Dana (Sigourney Weaver) and Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), is now a Ghostbuster.
A quote from the article reads, “For example, Sigourney Weaver says that during one relatively recent conversation with Ivan Reitman, ‘I said, “I have one condition; I want my son, Oscar (from Ghostbusters II), to be a Ghostbuster,” and he said, “We’ve already done that.”‘”
We also get confirmation from the same article that, as anticipated, many members of the original cast are returning. An additional quote reads, “All of the original cast members interviewed for this article tell VF Hollywood that they’d happily participate in a third installment, and several speculated about what their characters would be up to today. Rick Moranis on the fate of Louis Tully: ‘He’s in prison, a cellmate of Bernie Madoff’s. They compete to see who can make their bed first in the morning.’ Ernie Hudson prophesies that Winston Zeddmore would be ‘the C.E.O. of the Ghostbusters franchise. I just hope that he wouldn’t be on a walker or in a wheelchair.’ He adds wistfully, ‘And hopefully we’ll still be able to wear the backpacks.'”
Even more Ghostbusters 3 information was found in an article at Screen Crush. Although Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is the latest candidate to direct Ghostbusters 3, that wasn’t always the case. Originally Phil Lord and Chris Miller (directors of The Lego Movie) were attached to the project but then turned down the opportunity. Miller stated, “Right now, we’re just super tired and we want to take a break. We’re doing a TV show with Will Forte. So we don’t really know what we’re gonna do next; we just know we can’t jump into another movie like that right away.”
And Miller and Lord agreed, “We think that there’s a good Ghostbusters movie out there. It’s such a fun franchise. Obviously, we don’t have the same attitude as people who hate stuff before it’s even made. It’s a fun idea and it’s a fun world and I think it will work.”
