More Ghostbusters III Non-News; Ruben Fleischer in the Mix to DirectI know, guys. I’m sick of this, too. But I love Dan Aykroyd a ton and I’m really hoping this isn’t more blather. The actor sat down with the “Today Show” where he suggested the film would, in fact, kick off this spring!

No, I’m not betting my life on it, but Aykroyd seems to think the oft-announced sequel is en route.

“It looks like we’ll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I’m hearing,” Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. “It should be good.”

But don’t take my word for it, watch Danny’s segment here:

As always, take this with a grain of salt and, as always, expect more soon.

Etan Cohen penned the Ghostbusters III script, which is cut from the same cloth as the original films. The original Ghostbusters will have a very small role in the sequel. Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who played Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore, respectively, are expected to return, though Bill Murray’s involvement is questionable. You may recall that Murray had a cameo in Zombieland so, if Ruben Fleischer winds up directing, he may be able to get the slippery bastard into the mix after all.

This won’t be the last you hear of the sequel nobody wants, folks. But it’ll be interesting to see what happens if Sony’s August re-release of the original 1984 film makes good money. I’d be willing to bet that Aykroyd’s prophecy be fulfilled in that scenario.

    Ghostbusters II isn’t a great film by any means, but it is far, far from one of the worst sequels.

    I was excited for Ghostbusters III. But after all the false starts and all the other bullshit I’m no longer interested. Perhaps a decent trailer would change my mind, but I doubt it…

  • Terminal

    I concur with Devin Faraci that the Ghostbusters was a flawless one shot movie and really had no steam to continue on. The sequel is terrible, and I have zero anticipation or expectations for this alleged third film. I know it will happen eventually, whether or not we want it, but not even a trailer will salvage what will obviously be a movie filled with nothing but nods to the original, and over explaining fun elements from the first two movies.

    Even alleged fans like Max Landis don’t get that the third movie is unnecessary. I really don’t want to know who or what Slimer was, and his forced importance to the Ghostbusters mythos was so fucking idiotic.

  • kiddcapone

    I really don’t know how anyone can possibly hold a small nugget of anticipation for this flick anymore.

    I’ve always loved Ghostbusters. It’s still the only movie I’ve ever seen more than 3 times in the theater. I even loved the fucking Real Ghostbusters cartoon when I was young. But this is 2014. The two funniest characters, Peter and Egon, are disinterested and dead. Ray and Winston are fat, old, and the least interesting.

    And to further quell the boner, Ghostbusters 2 was one of the worst sequels sitting in the same company as The Ring 2, Exorcist 2, Freddy’s Revenge, Wayne’s World 2, and Caddyshack 2. Why should anyone have any confidence a 3rd film would be different? Especially in this day and age when overkill CGI shit like Transformers is the new standard for filmmaking. The simple charm of the original can never be recreated.

    • Matt Serafini

      I’m with you on this movie, Kid.

      However, I must disagree regarding Ghostbusters II. I never got the hate for it, and still find it absolutely hilarious whenever I watch it.

      From the World of the Psychic series, to Peter MacNicol, I really love it.

      • LSD Zombie

        Yeah, lumping it in with Exorcist 2 as one of the worst sequels in history is straight up bonkers. I was thankful that they went in a completely unique direction for Ghostbusters 2. Maybe that’s what turned some people off about it.

        • kiddcapone

          I don’t think so. The Exorcist is considered one of, if not, the best horror film ever. And then there was The Heretic. Ghostbusters is a perfect classic. Then there is part 2. It’s not the unique direction of the film, it’s the script/dialogue and the soundtrack is terrible. Even in the fantasy world of Ghostbusters, part 2 is a cartoon or comic book at best. Making the Statue of Liberty come alive and walk by covering it with slime? A slime river of negativity flowing under NYC and to defeat it you must be nice to one another?

          Ghostbusters 2 was just so bad. Nothing but a fast money grab to quickly capitalize off the success of the first film. It’s painfully unfunny to watch. It pales in comparison to the original and feels like everyone was counting the cash and going through the motions…

          • LSD Zombie

            So an enormous Marshmallow man and a demon chick covered with bubbles is okay, but an animated Statue of Liberty is crossing the line? I don’t understand what makes one more exceptional than the other. I also think Janosz Poha is pretty damn funny.

          • kiddcapone

            Come on, really? Both worked in the context of the story because neither existed in reality. Choose the destructor, which could have been anything, but a giant marshmallow was especially funny in a comedy. The demon chick, again could have chose any form in the story, and chose that bubble lesbian look. Who knows why.

            The Statue of Liberty was nothing but Aykroyd and Ramis smoking a joint saying, hmmmm, what could we use larger than Stay Puft in NYC, I know, Lady Liberty. Realistically it wasn’t meant to bend so it would break apart, but fuck it, we’ll cover it with positive slime, play Higher and Higher, it will look cool, and also give us a lame reason to get into the museum.

            After that shit, in Ghostbusters III they can rub positive ecto on Mount Rushmore and have the heads of Washington, Lincoln, Roosevelt, and Jefferson grow spider legs and help them fight ghosts; And you just need to suck it up and pretend it’s not dumb because you went along with equal ridiculousness the last time out.

          • MonsterMash

            …Right… Both movies are silly as fuck.

          • LSD Zombie

            Context or not, they’re all goofy ideas no matter how you slice it. And Viggo The Carpathian fucking rocks.

          • Matt Serafini

            HE IS VIGO! You are like the buzzing of flies to him!

      • Cinemascribe

        While I absolutely concur with Kidd about Ghostbusters III (as far as I’m concerned, the moment Harold Ramis passed away it became a non issue. No Ramis, no Reitman, no movie), I also completely agree with you on Ghostbusters II, Matt. I love the film. Whenever I put in my Ghostbusters DVD, I make sure to allot some time to make it a double feature with the sequel.

        Some of my favorite lines:

        PA: “No respectable psychic will appear on the show. They all think you’re a fraud.”
        Venkman: “I AM a fraud.”

        Louis Tully (serving as the guys attorney) : “Your Honor, ladies and gentleman of the audience, I don’t think it’s fair to call my clients frauds. Sure, the blackout was a big problem for everybody. I was trapped in an elevator for two hours and I had to make do the whole time. But I don’t blame them. Because one time, I turned into a dog and they helped me. Thank you.”
        Spengler:”Very good, Louis. Short, but pointless.”

        Venkman (when Stantz, Zedemore and Spengler all pile into a posh restaurant covered in “mood slime”): “Guys? GUYS?! Youre scaring the straights.”

        And the list could go on.
