UPDATED!! GHOSTBUSTERS 3 Is Finally In Development!?!? But...

Merrick again...
A bit more information about the game is drifting in.
All four members of the movie team -- Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis -- will be giving voice and likeness rights for the game. Some supporting castmembers have signed up as well, including William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray and Annie Potts. In addition, film scribes Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the vidgame that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.
...says THIS ARTICLE in Variety. Also, the folks over at Kotaku seem to have scored a rather spectacular image from the game, which you can see HERE. More info as more comes in.

Merrick here...
Seems GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is coming around at last, but not in the way many were anticipating. Game Informer has revealed the cover of its December issue, which you can see HERE! The cover is contextualized thusly:
Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are getting back together and revisiting their roles to make a sequel to Ghostbusters 1 and 2 – in video-game form, and we’ve got the first details. Both Aykroyd and Ramis are teaming up for scriptwriting duties and are going far beyond just the typical licensed add-your-voice-to-the-game-you-had-nothing-to-do-with formula.
The write-up accompanying the cover image also says this project is unrelated to the footage that hit the Nets earlier this year...spectacular material which seemed to be built around the Unreal engine. This is an interesting direction for the franchise. It's not as altogether cool as having a new movie to wait for (although I didn't think the second film was particularly good), but it does seem preferable to restarting the mythos with a new cast (or something like that). Presumably Monki from AICN Games will have more on this project as it develops...

    Ghostbusters 2 was good

    by WolfmanNards

    The movie had it's flaws, but was overall a good sequel. The best thing about it was the opening of the film. In GB1, we leave the heroes having saved the world. Everybody is cheering for them. They are gods. 5 years pass, and forced into early retirement, they're making petty cash doing childrens' birthday parties. Venkman doesn't get the girl. She ditched him and had a kid with some other guy. It's all kind of sad, and a great foundation from which to watch them rise once again. There are great jokes, and excellent set pieces. Who didn't enjoy watching the statue of liberty walk? </p> I've always dreamt there would be another good ghostbusters game. We can't forget the GB game for the sega master system. Brilliant game way beyond its time. But a FPS GB would be awesome. It's a bit disappointing, though, to see that this might mean there isn't another movie in the works. Ghostbusters Hellbent would have been a great sequel in CGI. You can't make another live action ghostbusters movie for one reason alone- The Ghostbusters is more than just the concept, it is the characters, therefore it would be a bad idea to bring new Ghostbusters in, yet the ghostbusters we knew and loved are a bit aged, gained some extra lbs, and probably wouldn't want to be making action comedies at their age. CGI would be a brilliant approach. However, let's wait and see how things pan out. Whichever way things work out, it looks like we'll be entertained nonetheless.

    Ghostbusters 2 is SHITTY!

    by Musicballs

    Ghostbusters 2 had extensive re-shoots. There was a scene they shot where Ray gets possessed by Viggo and he goes crazy while driving the Ecto 1. Winston punches him out before he can crash the Ecto 1 into a tree. Also, they altered the final act significantly... The slime covering the museum was supposed to suck the mayor's evil assistant Jack Hardemeyer into it. Most of this material was included in the comic book adaption.

    by Dollar Bird

    Sorry but I'm going to have to fall on the Ghostbusters 2 was bad side of the argument. In fact, it's the tried and true measure of a bad film. Which would you rather watch: a movie you just declared as lousy, or Ghostbusters 2 ten times in a row? If you pick the 10-times GB2 viewing, you know you've got a bad film. Honestly, though, GB2 had a horrible villain who never seemed to be of any threat. He was a painting for crying out loud. The Statue of Liberty walking was horrible. I hated McNichol, even my soft spot for all things "Dragonslayer" coudn't make me like him in that role. He spent the whole movie saying "Viggo? Vi-go?" Gah!

    by cdubbs727

    Seriously, I really get irked when people try to take Ghostbuster seriously and say that it has a mythology to uphold or that they want to see a "kick-ass" Ghostbusters. The films were comedies! That's why I don't see a video game working...yeah, it's a fun idea...but the GB films (the first especially) was not about action and adventure, but about dry wit in absurd circumstances. Can that translate to a game?

    I think Ghostbusters 2 is a pretty bad movie (it's essentially a remake of the first one subbing the Statue of Liberty for Mr Stay Puft) but I agree. When Murray calls the DA "kitten," that's pretty funny.

    After broken flowers came out just after he lost the best actor oscar. It went way back to the days of ghostbusters and ghostbusters 2. Ramis and Aclroyd found murray to be a right royal pain in the ass. Seemingly the only obstacle to doing GB 2 was murray himself. Sofia Coppolla signed up Murray to do LOst in translation but she warned by several people about murrays difficult nature. When Murray is in great form he can very funny and the set apprantly was buzzing when this happened. However when murray was not the set was thunderous. Another group who found this out were the cast Charlie angels. Murray's volatility on set made sure that he didnt come for the awful sequel. People in hollywood are wary about casting him in anything. Sofia Coppolla summed it up best. when she said when bill is in great form he was a real live wire but when hes not it is best to just leave him alone.

    I just wanna see another GB movie.....

    by TiPPiDa

    I don't care what its about, like The Ghostbusters being hired by a hollywood studio to help rid hollywood of its 'ghosts' like Marilyn munroe and Montgomery Clift at the Roosevelt hotel, George Reeve's house, HOUDINI! now that would present some challenges for the team... the obvious "twist" would be the studios would be the evil doers in this scenario... so you know.. in keepin' with reality haha or perhaps In a cheesy way, with all the Vs. Movies out there, they could take on some of movies greatest supernatural villains. can you imagine a Ghostbusters Vs Amityville movie? or Poltergeist, or FREDDY?!?..

    The YouTube footage isn't fake

    by TruPhan

    but it was done prior to Akroyd and Ramis' involvement. It was essentially a pitch by the developer, to show Akroyd what the medium is capable of now.<p>Personally, I think the game is a better idea than the movie. Akroyd's writing has hit the shitter as of late, and to be honest, the Ghostbusters in "Man-hell-ton" (that's the story Akroyd is pushing - a Hell universe set in New York) in a video game sounds much more fun and plausible than it would on screen.<p>Let's not forget, Akroyd originally wanted to set Ghostbusters hundreds of years in the future on the planet Mars. Let that sink in for a second. Now think of how much better the movie was once the reigns were pulled in a little bit. Well with technology the way it is nowadays, Akroyd thinks that he can tell that kind of story...the kind that involves our heroes in alternate dimensions and fighting monsters and is devoid of the entrepreneurial spirit that fueled the first movie. What a horrible movie that could make. But video games don't make the same demands of storyline and premise that movies do since the main focus is on gameplay.<p>Basically, it sounds like it's the perfect fit for Ghostbusters III in my book. Akroyd gets to tell whatever crazy story he wants without having to worry about how accessible it is to the general public (since the game's target audience is those that love Ghostbusters and those that love video games) and fans who would have otherwise had nothing now get to have another story with some fun characters, and hopefully a really fun video game too.

    RE: The Genesis Ghostbusters game

    by mr.underwater

    I had it back in the day (the day of the Genesis) and it was pretty wack. Just another uninspired platformer (like many games of that era) with a Ghostbusters theme.<br><br>The c64 version on the other hand, I thought was pretty fun and interesting as you actually had to run your Ghostbusting business and turn a profit.

    No... Return of the Ghostbusters is a completly new film.. with higher production values etc. Its taken them 3 years to bring this out... and remember, it was made by the fans, for the fans....

    is referencing an article from British tabloid The Sun from 2004. The Sun is to be commended for putting young topless females on page 3, but is at the National Enquirer level in terms of credibility. <p> Murray is a lot like his old pal, David Letterman, in that he is cranky and crotchety and doesn't abide fools. However, he is not blacklisted in Hollywood or hated by Sofia Coppola, or any of the other erroneous things EmeraldBoy has deemed worthy of dragging out of his memory... I suppose we should be grateful that old EB has at least managed a post somewhat on topic, incorrect though it is, normally his posts would ramble on insanely about some clown who performed on Irish TV in the 1950s and expect us to have any clue either what he was talking about or more importantly, what that had to do with anything anyone else was talking about...

    Cool, I just checked it out. I'm clicking through their comic right now that bridges the gap. I like that he references Extreme Ghostbusters off-handedly around page 11. There's a charm to the amateurish quality Braxton produces, and I'd be lying if I said I'm not excited to see what fans are able to do when they love a universe enough to do something like this. Gotta say though, Eugene was my favorite character in Freddy vs. Ghostbusters film; don't know why he they had him killed off.

    Video Game is Best Course of Action

    by JuntMonkey

    All you idiots denouncing the "video game as sequel" idea should get a clue. It's clearly the best course of action at this point. I'm a huge fan of Ghostbusters, but GB2 is not good, and Aykroyd's "ManHellton" (and a Donald Trump-like villain called "Louis Siphler") script idea for GB3 sounded pretty bad. As TruPhan explained, even if we're still getting a version of that script, it will be much more palatable in video game form. The fact that you have all 4 guys plus Potts and Atherton coming back is just huge, and could not happen in a movie. Some of you apparently hate video games for some reason, but you'd better start getting used to them if you want to experience more Ghostbusters. A GB3 movie would NOT be "printing money" in any way. Since Murray won't do live action your only option is full CGI, and that's going to be tremendously expensive. If the movie itself does not get REALLY solid reviews you're in big trouble. A "decent" video game will be printing money in this case - a "decent" movie will not. To address another question - there will apparently be some sort of flashbacks to part 1. There are also screenshots of Slimer at the Sedgewick Hotel plus the New York Public Library. Check the forums at for more info.

    Back off. I'm not an idiot because I don't like the video game = 3rd Ghostbusters movie idea. And you're not an idiot for liking the idea. It's just not my cup of tea. If they don't have the means (or maybe the courage) to make the 3rd flick, then that's fine.

  • Nov. 16, 2007, 12:20 a.m. CST



    you guys have no idea how good or bad this will turn out. However, one thing this has going for it is a couple of guys who know how to write funny shit... and that is one area where videogames need to improve. The writing. There are some good games out there, to be sure, but the one area where film and games can come together is in the writing. I look foward to see how this turns out. The graphics look sweet... now let's hope Vivendi puts in some good animation to go with the story.

  • Nov. 16, 2007, 12:35 a.m. CST

    and about the 1990 aspect.


    In a way, voice acting is a great venu for older actors, who don't feel they 'look' the part anymore... to create stories that don't depend on one's age. Hell, Sean Connery recently did voicework for the "007 From Russia With Love" videogame. He did sound older, but he somehow pulled it off! This could never happen with standard film. So to have Ghostbusters take place in the 90's is in a way, when GHOSTBUSTERS 3 should of been made. But it wasn't. Now they are older and have a chance to make that film! And who knows... if the game takes off and sells like hotcakes BAM! You have the next Ghostbusters film greenlighted. A "Grumpy-old-men" meets "Ghostbusters" comedy that most probably have lines like: Ray: *wheeze* "I'm getting too old for this." Egon:"I'm getting too tired for this." Peter: "I'm getting too... WOW, would you look at the size of those knockers?!?" Winston: "Yah, now that's what I call a large door." etc...

    The sun is a xenophobic piece of gutter trash. I did not read the article in the sun. I dont buy the sun. I read it in a movie magazine. in a profile piece about about bill murray,it was very lengthy piece. I am not going to mention the the name of the Publication but it was a very good film magazine untill very recently when they went to town on certain animated film about a family. the publication in question employed very good writers in the past, including Rod lurie and thier peak came when they did specials on the Lord of the Rings and published a booklet. Those were the haclyon does of that publication. They even launched thier own awards ceremony. It was great in the early days but this publication has really gone downhill. This publication gave a 5 star rating to a certain superhero movie about a superhero who goes under the moniker of the man of steel. Even though some of you hated that film. anyway I have wondered why talkbackers hate the established press so much, maybe its to do with the shortness of attention span.

    Having seen the original GB movie

    by emeraldboy

    which I loved and the 2nd which, I saw in the US with my Mother and brother. And having seen the original toon and its spin off,extreme ghost busters. There was talk about doing a third film which never materialised. So now they are making a computer game instead. which will possibly be the third movie in all but name. Some talkbackers want a new movie. but other talkbackers will start to complain if they dont like who is in the directors chair, who is going to star in it. there will be uproar if a new team of writers is assembled. Murray will likely go to court over that and he will joined by Ackroyd and Ramis. and that is how it should be.
