There won't be a live action Ghostbusters 3, But there will be a video game taking it's place. Try to keep up with the pointless trivia ok?.

They'll certainly have to do better than BHC3 !!! Theme park setting, no swearing, and Serge as a weapon salesman??? More like the Beverly Hills Muppets... ridiculous.

Anyhoo, speaking of Back To The Future 4: check out this video starring Thomas F. Wilson aka. Biff - it's hilarious!

Beethoven headlining, of course.

Oh, and the last scene is them getting in a limo with Death!


Jesus they should make that, I would watch it as well!

Go for it, Eddie. It is time you took your place among those long lost 80's superstars, whose agents are probably pushing for a reality show with a dozen said members of the 80's live together for a month or somethin'...

I am one of probably many which will say this is ridiculous.
You'll get people welcoming it with open arms for sure, but why can't they leave the best franchises alone?
There's no point trying to squeez blood out of stones.
Brett Ratner, gah.
The man should leave the movie business.
These famous franchises had their moments, that's what made them so loveable, the originality and the fun at the time.
One word for you, Norbit.
It says it all really.
Welcome, the unfortunate, washed up Eddie Murphy, who we all once came to love.

does Ratner have an ounce of artistic integrity? methinks not. He really doesn't deserve all the money he has.

I love 80's action films, but i aint sure about this one as BHC3 was really bad. They gotta bring back Taggert + Rosewood and please let Foley loose with the "F" word!!!!
Gremlins 3 anyone? They are great 80's films.

No to BHC4. As some of you have said, 3 was bad enough. But I would say yes to Gremlins 3!

The answers in the title! Brett Ratner is the king of franchise destroyers, his films have the depth of a kiddies paddling pool, he has no passion for film only for money. Shame on Hollywood for giving him access to decent films!!!

A sign that Hollywood is getting desperate and that Brett wants to make another Rush Hour film but no one will see it so this is the next best thing for him. Although to be fair Eddy Murphy needs a film to star in before his career vanishes. This could be good but Rush Hour 3 and X-men3 were a little bland.

This is just what the doctor ordered for Mr. Murphy. However, this cannot be a watered down, "cakesucker" / "muddy funsters" esque family jaunt courtesy of those truly wise film excecs in Hollywood. Murphy needs to let rip, preferably, in Brett "detroyer of franchises" Ratners face. The only sour note is his inclusion on the project.

is it me, or is brett ratner hollywood's answer to uwe boll??? he's certainly on par with uwe on the artistic roll call.

he's not much liked by fans, yet somehow, he still manages to find work?

i heard amy winehouse is going to do a remix of the theme tune.....maybe tim burton could get amy winehouse to do the "alice in wonderland" theme song? that could be interesting.

Why the hell is Eddie Murphy so desperate?
After his career finally seemed to be going well, making AWARD WINNING films, he goes back to this shite.
Indy and McClane? Yes please,
Rambo and Axel? Retire.

With most of this current rash of 80's franchise remakes, refreshes and reimaginings, you can pretty well guarantee that they will each make money as there is a captive audience which will definitely go and see it. Look at what happened with Indy 4: 'mixed' reviews but most fans of the original films went along anyway, 'just in case it was good'.

With the new Rambo and Rocky films, I think it was clear that these were one-offs to (a) satisfy the fans that had wanted new episodes for years and (b) to make money. The intentions of the people making the films were quite open and honest, and viewers took them at face value. Hunger sated, nobody is calling for further sequels (correct me if I'm wrong!).

With Indy 4, again the fanbase had been calling for another film. What they got was an attempt to refresh the franchise and pass the hat on to a younger star. In doing so, in my opinion, the filmmakers not only failed to refresh the franchise but they failed to satisfy their core audience. Still, they covered their costs...

Again correct me if I'm wrong, but I haven't heard anybody saying "I can't wait for them to make another Beverley Hills Cop film".  As a concept in the 21st century it simply doesn't stand up in this post-Bourne and post-updated Bond world. To make money, it needs to appeal to fans of the originals. And for that it needs to go back to the spirit and language of the originals. And I'll be surprised if Eddie Murphy's agent allows him to make that sort of film now. Eddie Murphy's fanbase is the kids. Beverley Hills Cop's fanbase are all growed up now. Something has to give.

Apologies for the long post.   Note to self: more self-editing needed.
