You have to remember that if Judd Apatow is on board, he's not your usual Hollywood producer/writer that's eager to churn out dross. He takes his time to make the best possible film.

My choices for the new Ghostbusters would be Bill Hader, Donald Faison, Seth Rogen and Nathan Fillion.

Having seen the footage for the Ghostbusters Video Game, I'm more excited by this idea. Plus a recent interview with Sigourary Weaver said she was meeting with Bill Murrary regarding the film and she hoped her baby Oscar who now be one of the Ghostbusters.

Paul Rudd as Oscar?

He'd be a bit old wouldn't he? The guy is 40 odd. I'd probably go for somebody like Jay Barachul as Oscar, maybe being brought up extra moddy coddled because of all the shit that went down. I dunno though, the idea of the new guys really doesn't warm to me (although Fillion would be great) as much as I like the guy though I don't want Rogan to be in it but I have a feeling he will. He has really one acting mode and although it works well elsewhere I don't think it would fit Ghostbusters. Bill Hader would be good but its tough thinking of anyone to step in their shoes because nobody has the same comedy style of those guys back in the day. Saying that Jason Bateman would kick ass.

I'm in 2 minds about this - the original film is a classic and the sequel is actually better than I remembered at the time but a third?

I can see how its going to happen - the old guard help train up some new guys as Ghostbusters and the franchise will continue with the new guys in part 4. It's logical I guess but for me it's not Ghostbusters unless Egon, Ray, Peter and Winston are the ones doing the busting.

Well it says in the latest Production Weekly that Judd Apatow Productions are producing this.  Really hope they can pull out something special for the third film!

So do I seeing as Ghostbusters is my favorite comedy of all time, if not one of my favorite films ever.



Ramis promised that all the old core players will take part in the updated version, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."
[EDIT]
At the moment, Ramis is waiting on a first draft of the script, which is being penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two writer/producers on "The Office," who also wrote "Year One." "Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new 'Ghostbusters,' " Ramis said. "I'm consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and [original director] Ivan Reitman.

"Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office," Ramis joked.



Good to see Ramis and Aykroyd are heavily involved.

I think the reason that I'm actually positive about this, is that interest of hiring random writers, they've got the main writers of the US Office, which whether you like it or not, has produced some of the more witty and entertaining television of recent years and the likes of Ramis and Akyroyd are heavily involved.

Akyroyd has be waxing lyrical about it and I don't blame him. Has he been trying to get a third film off the ground for the past 20 years?!

Sigourney Weaver may still be on the fence about committing to Ghostbusters 3, despite Harold Ramis confidence that everybody from the films original cast said they'd do it. Series star and writer Dan Aykroyd, meanwhile, appeared hopeful that Weaver would return, reiterating her hesitation to sign on, but he also let slip some possible spoilers for the new film, including the nature of the franchise's next wave of Proton Pack wearers.
 
"When we do the Ghostbusters 3 movie, hopefully, Sigourney will be in it," Aykroyd told a group of reporters at a round-table interview. "I know we'll make that happen. But there will be a whole new generation that has to be trained, and that whole new generation will be led by an individual who you'll all love when you meet him but I'm not going to tell you anything yet."

Ramis said that he and his fellow stars might be acting as mentors or advisers to the new cast, and that capacity may be coming in to focus now, given Aykroyd's choice of words. In fact, the new sequel may potentially introduce a whole new school of Ghostbusters.
 
"They'll be lots of cadets, boys and girls, who'll be learning how to use the psychotron, the accelerators and all the new stuff, the neuron splitter, which is going to be the interplaner, interceptor and all these great tools that they're going to have, to flip from dimension to dimension", Aykroyd explained.
 
The word 'cadets' would imply some sort of 'academy' for the newbies to be trained in. Whether that was a carefully chosen word or casual summary of the new cast will have to remain to be seen, but it sounds like any new additions to the Ghostbusters universe can look forward to some Ghostbusting boot camp.

If one of the new recruits is female, may I suggest Eliza Coupe (Scrubs, Flight of the Conchords). She's great at dead panning and is rather funny.

They've got Sigourney Weaver back? Score!

Love the idea of Harold Ramis directing and if 'Year One' is a hit, then that might be a cert.

I hear that, Tech. Our great minds think alike yet again.

Sigourney returning is great. She always managed to fit in with the blokey male cast brilliantly - just like she did in Aliens.

Any Ghostbusters movie which doesn't star Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson is missing the entire reason why we loved this in the first place.

From a real world story point of view it makes sense that younger people would take over the business however the point is that it just won't make a good movie.

This is simple.

1  Keep the original actors

2  Have them deal with one last supernatural problem. 

3  Make it the last movie in a trilogy.

We are forgetting one very vital lesson about time and character - INDY 4!!

Do we want another Mutt Williams type? Is Bill Murray really gonna put on that grey suit and be enthusiastic - Ford seemed out of sorts - are they gonna fuck up the weaver/murray dynamic the way they fucked up Ford/Allen THINK ABOUT IT?

True. Indy 4 should never have happened. Only seen it the once but it felt like a big mistake. Luckily, I don't think it's damaged the three excellent originals - not sure Ghostbusters would survive so well if given a crap third instalment. Continuation in other mediums is great - novels, comics, video games, even animations - but not films.

The animation was good, some eps were pretty scary for the young 'un I was back then.  I have reflected on Indy 4 and admit responsibility for being among the thousands of true grit fans that wanted it, completely ignoring common sense and our punishment was just....................watch the wedding scene, the most appalling marital scene I think I've ever seen - OH WHAT A WASTE

I would love to see a third film of the series, but it should - as mlavagna said, have the original cast with it. Even though a younger generation may do a good job, but it won't be the same thing without Ray, Egon, Peter and Winston holding the proton packs. They were one of the reasons that the first two films were as successful as they were. They couldn't have had a better cast! I really hope we can see all of them for number three - even though all of them are over fifty. I still think they can pull it off.

I'm more worried about the whole "passing the torch-thing" and that maybe the time for Ghostbusters has passed a long time ago. It's clearly not the eighties anymore and it has gone two decades since last time. It's not the same today as it were back in 1989. The biggest hysteria is over by now. I will however still hold my thumbs and keep my eyes open for this one. With the right cast it can't be all bad...

According to IMDb it's scheduled for 2012. Does anyone know if that's comfirmed? "Only" three more years left in that case.

I really felt sorry for Indy. Old and miserable already and now married to a crazy woman who laughs as she drives a truck off a cliff.

The most cringeworthy Indiana Jones scene ever. Compare the endings of the other three, each made me smile and feel good - especially Temple and Crusade.

The notion of Murray and co. training the usual Apatow clique really doesn't appeal to me. In fact the idea of Apatow making this at all is equally off-putting. His banter-fuelled, plotless comedies already feel dated.

Nothing beats the original. This remake thing, not too thrilled about it. You can't have another Venkman type this is not Bill Murray, he's the master of deadpan comedy, it just doesn't work. Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd? Sorry not very funny, just annoying.

Fuck it, I'm excited! I love the fact that all the four original 'Busters are returning, there will be training of new recruits and the script will hopefully be hilarious.... but then I liked Indy 4, so make of that what you will.

For people citing precedent over Indy IV, can I just point out that they're being made by different people.  If George Lucas was writing the script, then yeah, I'd be a tad worried ("Ghostbusters vs Midiclorians!").  But I do have faith that the crew are approaching this with the best intentions.  Apart from Murray, Ackroyd's already joked about him only agreeing once the truck full of money is parked in front of the house.

However, can I just say one thing that will likely chill everyone to the bone... Oscar Barrett.  He'll be about 20 now, you know.
