WHO ARE YOU GONNA CALL?
Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, Annie Potts and director Ivan Reitman for this Entertainment Weekly‘s 30th anniversary reunion cover shoot!
They were joined by Al Roker, a HUGE ‘Ghostbusters’ fan (let’s be honest..who really isn’t one?), to reminisce over some gooey details about what it was like during auditions, on set, the legacy ‘Ghostbuster’ has left, and the late Harold Ramis (*pours some scotch out of glass* this one’s for you, Igor!) that will be included in the EW article set to hit shelves this Friday.
During this interview, Murray offered fun tidbits about the making of the film and even discussed the chances of a ‘Ghostbusters 3’ with an ALL-FEMALE cast for a sequel!
Here are the two things we learned prior to the issue’s release:
The ingredients that was used to create Slimer’s ectoplasm is probably something you should not bring to a family picnic, it will probably kill you if ingested and will stick to your skin to make for speedy absorption. Murray recalls it was a “disgusting combination” of super healthy food-adjacent items such as “corn syrup and another … and starch and … some sort of an adhesive and a kind of a poison that’s used on chinch bugs.” This seems like a recipe for something Madeleine Smith would whip up when she felt scorned by a lover.
Also ‘Ghostbuster 3’ is probably not going to happen any time soon. Murray said “I say the money’s not right yet…. It’s really hard to — to recreate something that was so beautiful, so wonderful” when asked by Roker to discuss the possibility of us seeing a sequel.
I agree..you really cannot half-ass this remake, there will be riots if you ruin the ‘Ghostbusters,’ as in Stay Puft Marshmellow Man status damage.
There clearly is only one solution..LET’S JUST TAKE EVERYONE FROM THE COVER (with Rick Moranis!) AND MAKE A SEQUEL RIGHT MEOW! There has been less worthy Kickstarter campaigns. I’ll start the petition.
