Alright, so it's not exactly horror but, for the record, the library scene in Ghostbusters scared me more then any horror film in my childhood and it still chills me to the core to this very day. Men chasing ghosts. A slimy green goblin. Ectoplasm. Demonic dogs from hell. An oversized man made of marshmallow terrorizing a town. Sounds like horror enough for me! But that's all besides the point. The long awaited Ghostbusters 3 has finally been OFFICIALLY announced and I don't care whether my blog revolved around golf swing tips, i'm fuckin talkin about it and you can't stop me!
Is Bill Murray gonna be in it? What about Dan Aykroyd? How about Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson? Quite possibly! A script is currently being written by The Office producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, and the plan, at least for now, is to have all four original Ghostbusters return! Unfortunately, due to the high salaries that would have to be paid to all the original stars, among other problems, the likelihood of them all returning isn't too high. But let's not lose hope just yet. No deals with the stars will be made until the script is ready to be shot.
This is some of the most exciting news to come down the pipe line in the past twenty years. We've all been waiting for a new entry into the Ghostbusters series, and it looks like its finally happening. Would we even want to see the movie if it didn't have the actual cast back in their roles, though? I don't think I would. Although, if they can get Rick Moranis to return to the screen, i'm there!
