After the loss of Harold Ramis, The Hollywood Reporter has been informed of an an update to Ghostbusters III. Drum roll… It is still happening. According to the Reporters Source it’s being slightly reworked. Okay that right there worries me… Slightly re-worked implies that Ramis’ roll in the upcoming feature would have been extrodinarily small. Does the same apply for the other Ghostbusters?
Ghostbusters III was expected to start filming in Cleveland sometime this year, it is now being said that the script is no longer ready to move forward… well no shit. The storyline will be focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters with cameos from the original stars written into the script. When I hear that I just think of shit like American Pie Presents the Naked Mile. Where it no longer follows the original cast instead its a super watered down version. If the original cast is to be cameos whats the fucking point?
Dan Aykroyd previously said this of the plot:
“It’s based on new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University… Basically, there’s research being done that I can say that the world or the dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence, length, height, width and time, become threatened by some of the research that’s being done. Ghostbusters — new Ghostbusters — have to come and solve the problem.”
