Update: I've just heard from 3 people within the big wide world of Sony that tell me this is..... FAKE-OLA. I'm gonna leave it up, so that everyone can see that the following is BS, not to be believed. If it appears on any site as the truth, dismiss it. I pretty much thought it was a load of baloney, but it has been backed up to be exactly that... processed bovine cartlege and fat. It is bovine excrement.
Ok folks, this is where you fly up to Salt Lake City and begin licking that salt right off the ground. I want you to know that I have absolutely not one shred of information to back up any of this stuff. It came in out of left field, and when I showed it to my folks they all shrugged their shoulders (that's what they told me) and said, "uh i dunno." So do realize this could very well be the delusional beliefs of a madman, but at the same time... it might really be as secret as he says it is. No matter what, I want to know what you folks out there have heard about this. I haven't heard a thing since them press releases and quotes that Dan Akyroyd did back during BLUES BROTHERS 2000. SO stay tuned, let's see what we can find out.
All info from Jon Leonard (the GB3 king)
Wow. Its been quite a week for Ghostbusters 3. First the official SONY report and now, THIS :
This is a quote from Bill Murray, about everyones favourite sequel.
"... I had my doubts, but Dan really pulled together a great script. I think its gonna be a lot of fun to get the group back together. And I cant wait for that humongous paycheck I made them give me!" - BILL MURRAY That last line was said 'jokingly' according to Sony liason Bob H.
As we all know, former Gatekeeper, Mrs Possessed, Sigourney Weaver, didn't exactly jump at the chance to be in the new Ghostbusters film. The script however, requires Mr. Murray to be married... so Dan Aykroyd went and did some casting. When the script was written, apparently the role was written for, Meryl Streep. Thats right. (Little old don't you think?) But, not wanting obviously to mess with her previous record of dramas, turned down the chance to be Murray's wife. Dan, is now re-writing for an unchosen actress to fill her shoes.
Who could fill her shoes? Who knows... but I'll tell you when I find out. Also, my friend and I think an excellent choice would be long time Seinfeld star, Julia Louis Dreyfuss, long time Ms. Elaine Benes. Why? Well, she'd be the perfect wife to Murray, and she wouldn't be an expensive choice.
SONY has announced that to handle the film's special effects, they have started their own FX division. The title is now... True Voodoo. It will handle the new GB sequel as well as other new SONY/COLUMBIA pics, like probably Men in Black II.
Long time comedian, Bob Newhart and Gilbert Godfried have been added to the cast. Not as Ghostbusters obviously, but as bit parts. How bit? Well, Godfried's role will be a hotel clerk that refuses the GB's to enter the hotel. Quite bit. Also, Larry Wilcox, will guaranteed appear in the film as the scientist, who attempts to fuse Hell and Earth.
Alright, the best news has been saved for last :
Rumour has it that filming has been going for about 10 days, and it is so top secret, even the crew isn't allowed to speak of the movie, or even its title. Rumours also circulate about Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will make a surprise appearance on Saturday Night Live, to debut a trailer on Ghostbusters 3. No date has been set.
And then here is the second email I received about Ghostbusters 3... from the same source, so keep swallowing the salt till I can get some of this stuff confirmed.
Mayor Lenny's triumphant return, and Ernie Hudson, oh yeah, and a couple other huge names (BIG) All info, as usual from Jon Leonard (the GB3 king)
Earlier in the week I reported that the new Ghostbusters movie has been filming for a week. Well, sort of. True Voodoo has been working on computer animation for buildings in New York, and the Hell versions. That makes more sense as some casting choices haven't been decided. ie) Who will portray Peter Venkman's wife.
As I reported before, the movie is indeed TOP SECRET!. Last Tuesday, a New york reporter managed to enter the shooting location, and got arrested for trespassing. The crew took the camera and film he had on him.
Well, who busted the trespasser? None other than the new mayor of New York, Dennis Miller. Thats right, Miller has joined the cast, and now Governer Lenny will have one line in the film : "How do I keep running into you guys!?"
According to SONY spokesman, J. Christopshen, "Ernie Hudson, will have a major role in the film."
Recent host of Saturday Night Live, David Spade, will apparently play the voice of Slimer. No word yet if the part will be bigger than Slimer's cameo appearance in Ghostbusters 2. This movie is becoming to look like every SNL actor on the planet will make an appearance. (okay only 4 : Miller, Aykroyd, Murray, and Spade)
