Ghostbusters 3 Shooting Next Spring?
Production possibly slated for May

02 November 2010  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Production Weekly

Last we heard, the protracted saga was still dragging on, and Dan Aykroyd had taken over the script from Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. There's some intriguing intel from the usually reliable Production Weekly this morning though: they're suggesting that Ghostbusters 3 has a start date.

"We're hearing that Sony Pictures is planning to put Ivan Reitman's Ghostbusters 3 into production in May 2011" tweets the tweet. They're hearing. Sony are planning. That's a lot of careful equivocation in a short sentence, suggesting that the film may yet be spirited away from production once again. 

But if it's true, it would mean a place for Ray, Peter, Egon and Winston in Sony's 2012 summer roster. It would also mean that Aykroyd's script-tweaking (the story, as far as we know, involves a next generation of Ghostbusters, Dana Barret's son Oscar among them, taking over from the increasingly decrepit originals) has found approval at the studio. Is this a green light we see before us? Should we start calling this Ghostbusters 3D now?

RE: Just no.
If Die hard 4 pulled it off then there's no reason to doubt yet.....unless of course there's something daft like a big fall or cgi-itis accident and getting up without a scratch. Or if the uniforms get all neo and leather-like then I might worry More

RE: Just no.
L: Lemure Indiana Jones and Star Wars should have taught everyone what happens when you try this. I know they want to sell action figures to a new generation, but in doing so they'll kill a name that will always after be thought of as "the two classics from the 80's, and that dodgy reboot." think you'll find a lot of debate regarding Ghostbusters 2 being hailed a classic. Given that it's the original team behind it, I don't have a problem with a third film. It may prove to be not More
