    I'm bored and watching Extreme Ghostbusters, which is pretty cool, but i can't help thinking why they hell they didn't do a ghostbusters 3. Most of my childhood was spent running around with proton packs made from cardboard boxes shooting class 3 apparitions. I really want a third film. Evolution should never have been made, Ivan should have done the last in the trilogy or something, where hell over flows and they have to talk to the devil to make a compromise and get covered in slime on the way. YAY.

    Oh I don't know - mainly because Ghostbusters 2 was an evil abomination, squeezed from Beelzeebub's arse cheeks?

    EDIT: Silentbob puts it much more succienctly!

    Have you SEEN Ghostbusters 2?

    That's why there's no Ghostbusters 3.

    Anyway I wouldn't worry. The speed at which Hollywood is remaking it's old movies there should be one along any day now. If they do then I reckon they should get the Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson, Vince Vaughan and Will Ferrell to make it.

    C'mon it was class when it came out, fair enough i was only 9 and most films with bright colours where great. It was a cool as Big Trouble in Little China.

    Maybe not Will Ferrell, he's about as funny as the lump on my left bollock.

    No it wasn't! It was trite, lazy and an insult to the brilliant original.

    And don't even try to compare GB2 with BTILC - genius flick!

    And that pretty much clinches it. You're an idiot.

    My god, have you seen Anchorman?

    OK maybe not as good as the original, but i still remember the theme tune "Too Hot to Handle". Now that's classy.

    Anchorman is not funny. I did like Will Ferrell, but since that film i find him annoying.

    Now films like Clerks, LOG:Apocolypse are funny.
    Anchorman is as funny as the American Version of the office.

    Nah, Noel Fielding is too 'out there' to be the new Bill Murray, he's kinda more like the new Eddie Izzard.

    To this day I love BOTH Ghostbusters films!

    I am of the opinion that the first one is superior, but the second one is still of a high quality.

    So phhhhhhhhhhhht to the lot of ya.

    I reckon it'd be funny to have them all back in it, the original cast, as they are now.

    "What happened 20 years later"

    Ecto 1 as a mass of primer with no hubcaps.

    Uranium leaking from the backpacks.

    Dana still being slightly masculine and yet strangely alluring.

    Can you imagine what an utter digital effects-vom it would be though now...CGI Stay-puft = no hee hee

    Yes, but the stop motion hell hound with horrible matte lines doesn't really hold up. The ghosts still look fantastic though.

    Huge bump! (mod change category to film please?)

    Ghostbusters 3 could be in development.

    "Two writers from the US version of The Office have been recruited to write a third instalment of Ghostbusters, according to trade newspaper Variety.

    Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky's hiring is seen as a sure sign the long-mooted comedy will finally be made. "

    There will never be anyone equal to, or greater than Bill Murray, he is in a league all of his own.

    I think the game (which may or may not be cancelled - not quite sure what happened there) was being considered 'Ghostbusters 3' by Ackroyd & Ramis (or at least, that's what one of the guys from Terminal Reality said in an interview I read). As for the film - I don't want to see it happen as it would never live up to the originals (have you seen Indiana Jones 4?!). Or you could just watch Evolution as it's more or less the unofficial sequel.

    Oh, and for the record I very much liked GB2, although it wasn't as good as the original.

    So, production set to start this winter...

    Although I'm slightly concerned:
    He said: "I'd like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie.

    "Let's revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family but let's pass it on to a new generation."

    Aykroyd, who co-write the previous two Ghostbusters movies, wants film babes Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku to form part of the new team.

    "I think they're amazing," he added.

    Hmm, let's see. A middle aged paunchy old man past his prime finds 20/30-something hot sex kitten type actresses (subjectivity notwithstanding) a prime duo to take over a movie he would very likely have a big hand in.

    Why am I not remotely surprised?

    Makes sense financially. It has great potential as a rebooted franchise.

    I do wish they'd revisited sooner though. :/

    If that's the road they're 'gonna take, then they can count me out.

    It'd be like pissing all over my childhood memories.

    The game will do me. (providing it's actually, you know, half decent) :)

    Ive been very busy, Aykroyd said.
    I'm afraid eating doesn't count as "busy", Dan.

    I suspect that's what many said about the Star Trek reboot.

    There's not many that could claim that wasn't a success and worthwhile.

    This could be done, and done well. I think the original cast in 'grumpy veteran' mode could be promising.
