Als Wissenschaftler sind sie kläglich gescheitert. Aber als selbständige Geisterjäger stehen sie am Beginn einer grossen Karriere. Die Doktoren Venkman, Stantz und Spengler, kurz, die Firma "Ghostbusters" (1984). Telekinese, PSI, modernste Apparaturen und 24-Stunden-Service sind ihre fürchterlichen Waffen gegen das Gespensterunwesen. Und das treibt es gerade in New York kunterbunt: Eine uralte sumerische Gottheit schickt sich mitten in der City zur Wiedergeburt an. Es droht eine Katastrophe biblischen Ausmaßes - und den Ghostbusters ihr erster Riesenauftrag...
Es folgte die nicht minder gelungene Fortsetzung "Ghostbusters 2" und die Zeichentrickserien "The Real Ghostbusters" (1986) und "Extreme Ghostbusters" (1997)...
Ghostbusters 3 !?!
Bereits 1996 kündigte Dan Aykroyd - alias Dr. Raymond Stantz - an, dass er an einem Drehbuch für "Ghostbusters 3" arbeiten würde... Seitdem geht es ständig hin und her... "Er kommt" - "Er kommt nicht"... Die Domain ghostbusters3.com wurde zwischenzeitlich registriert... Dan Aykroyd kündigte dann "Ghostbusters 3" an - als CGI-Trickfilm... Nun sieht es allerdings doch nach einer Realverfilmung aus, angeblich sollen im Frühjahr 2012 die Dreharbeiten beginnen... Abwarten...

Telegraph.co.uk sprach mit Dan Aykroyd über "Ghostbusters 3", Bill Murray wird (scheinbar) definitiv nicht mitspielen...
Empire Online sprach mit Dan Aykroyd über das leidige Thema "Ghostbusters 3"...
[...] [Talking about the reclusive Rick Moranis] "If we can get the script to Ghostbusters 3 right, then it would definitely have Moranis as a major component. None of us would want to do the movie without having him as a participant."
Even more intriguingly, Aykroyd hinted that Bill Murray may not return as Peter Venkman, and that the character could be played by a different actor, a la Jack Ryan.
[Talking about Ghostbusters 3 generally] "The script must be perfect. We cannot release a film that is any less than that. We have more work to do."
Vague, granted, but there you go. As for the internet rumour that Murray recently shredded a Ghostbusters 3 script and sent it back with a note that said, "No-one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts", Aykroyd denied it with vigour.
"Bill Murray is not capable of such behaviour. This is simply something that would not be in his nature. We have a deep, private personal relationship that transcends business. We communicate frequently and his position on the involvement in Ghostbusters 3 has been made clear and I respect that. But Bill has too much positive estimation of my writing skills to shred the work." [...]
While it's quite a ways from a solid confirmation of the plot to Ghostbusters 3, John Hodgman's comments on this week's The Best Show on WFMU are just a bit too on-the-nose to ignore. io9 took notice of the "hypothetical" scenario that the actor posed on the air, which syncs up suspciously well to what has already been revealed about the storyline of the pending sequel.
"If you were hypothetically offered a role in 'Ghostbusters 3'," Hodgman posited, "... would you take the role? Let's say you're sort of the dissolute son of Egon, the Harold Ramis character, and you're kind of like John Candy in 'Splash'. You're kind of a mess. But it turns out that you're a natural ghost whisperer. A natural psychic. But here's the thing: Bill Murray's not going to be in this movie and will probably not be happy that you are. But you get to be in a major role in a major movie and in one of the greatest franchises of all time. Would you do it?"
Hodgman's comments match previous reports that the film would feature children of the original Ghostbusters characters (although that story only stated that Sigourney Weaver's character's son, Oscar, would appear). It also backs up Dan Aykroyd's recent comments that the film will move forward without Murray if he fails to commit.
Whatever the case may be, current statements from Aykroyd target a start date of early next year. Whether that means that we'll be seeing Hodgman or anyone else joining the cast should be revealed soon.
UPDATE: Hodgman has indicated on his Twitter feed that he will not appear in Ghostbusters 3 and that the suggestion that he still might was in jest. It remains unclear whether or not the hypothetical plot details he mentioned are entirely that.
CS! zitiert Dan Aykroyd...
After years of rumors, it appears that Ghostbuster 3 is finally moving forward and will likely do so with or without Bill Murray's involvement. Dan Aykroyd appeared on The Dennis Miller Show to discuss the project, dropping specific details about the sequel, hinting that the plan is to film in Spring of 2012 no matter what happens casting-wise.
"Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray," he says, "That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold [Ramis], myself and Sigourney [Weaver]. The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."
The comedian also confirmed reports that the plot will revolve around a new generation of Ghostbusters and hinted at the states of his and Ramis' characters.
"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the cadillac," he says, "He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."
As for who might be cast as the new characters, Aykroyd says that, while no decision has been made, he does have a fondness for one piece of prospective casting.
"I like this guy Matthew Gray Gubler from the 'Criminal Minds' show," he adds, "But there's going to be a casting. We're going to see everyone that wants to do it. We're going to need... three guys and a young woman." [...]
MTV sprach mit Bill Hader über seine angebliche Besetzung in "Ghostbusters 3"...
[...] "I don't know anything about that," he said about the long-delayed, long-rumored third "Ghostbusters" film. "I hear the same way you did. No joke, my friend called me and said, 'Dude, it says you're in Ghostbusters 3?' I'm like, 'I am?' I went online and saw it, [and thoght] 'Thats great.' So yeah, I know nothing." [...]
CS! sprach mit Ivan Reitman...
ComingSoon.net: So, you know we have to ask you what's going on with "Ghostbusters 3," right?
Ivan Reitman: [laughs] We have a really good script, but Bill (Murray) has to read it. He hasn't read it. There has been all kinds of chatter online about him reading it and not liking it. He has not read a thing. He's never read anything. And I just sent it to him. So we'll see. God knows how long that will take. But we'll see.
CS: There have been a ton of stories online. Lots of back and forth...
Reitman: There is almost nothing that is accurate online about that film. Will you write that for me?
CS: I will!
Reitman: There is nothing... I mean, all these stories... there has been a ton of stuff about casting, about who's in... none of it is true.
CS: The whole Sigourney Weaver thing about her son taking over and Bill Murray coming back as a ghost...
Reitman: Oh, no, yeah... I mean, Sigourney Weaver has a role in this movie. All the original characters have parts. As well as a whole bunch of new characters... it's got a really good story, this one. Maybe the best of the whole series. I hope we get to do it.
