NBC’s OFFICE Writers Are

I am – Hercules!!
Sony has hired Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, Emmy-nominated writer-producers on the Steve Carell version of "The Office," to script a "Ghostbusters" sequel that would reunite Venkman, Stanz, Spengler and Zeddemore. Harold Ramis, who co-wrote the earlier "Ghostbusters" movies and portrayed mold fetishist Egon Spengler in those comedies, is in post-production on next summer's Jack Black period comedy "Year One," which was directed by Ramis from a screenplay by Ramis, Eisenberg and Stupnitsky. Ramis directed three season-three episodes of "The Office," namely "A Benihana Christmas," "Safety Training" and "Beach Games." "Office" episodes scripted by Eisenberg and Stupnitsky include "The Fight," "The Secret," "The Convention," "Women's Appreciation," "Dinner Party" and "Job Fair." Find all of Variety’s story on the matter here. Well, that's what I heard! Highlights from the Ramis-directed "Benihana Christmas":

    Really on the fence with this one.

    by Wandering_Prophet

    I'm as apprehensive as I am excited about this. It's not like the Office isn't well written, it's probably one of the best American sitcoms in recent memory (behind only Arrested Developement) But a GB script without Akroyd's ridiculous paranormal terminology? Only Akroyd can write Ray Stantz, Likewise with Ramis, really why would these guys read someone else's words for one of their greatest team efforts? And you know Murray won't follow the script, if He even signs on. Get Moranis and Weaver back and we'll see. I'm hoping for the best, but will approach with extreme caution. Ghostbusters is the first movie I ever remember seeing, so this is a big deal for me at least.

    After all the shitty crap Hollywood has been churning out, we finally get another "Ghostbusters." It used to be a game I'd play where I'd say, "They'll make 'Basic Instinct II' but not Ghostbusters III." Feel free to add any other useless, god-awful sequel or just a horrible movie where BI 2 is.

    by G100

    You only have to look at the sequel and the likes of evolution to see how badly it can go wrong.<p> <p>It has to be silly enough for bizzarre happenings and the comedy to seem natural but not so silly that everything collapses into a series of peurile slapstick scenes with no narrative or percieved risk to the protagonists. A very hard line to walk.<p> <p>And it's always worth rewatching Ghostbusters.. so many good lines, so superbly delivered...

    It has been postponed so that Sony can re-evaluate the marketing and subsequent release. There is NO OFFICIAL SOURCE stating its cancellation. <p></p> Know why? Next year is the 25th anniversary of the movie, so it makes perfect sense to release the game then. They've already nearly completed the game, so there is no logic at all in cancelling what would be a great seller.

    Seriously, this was the movie my whole family quoted to each other in regular conversation, it was that huge in our house. Every once in a while I'll say "4 FEET above her covers!" to my parents and they'll bust out laughing. Feeling a little weird about this news, though. Must EVERY 80's franchise be brought back? I'm as big a fan of my decade as you can be, but when there's talk of Red Dawn, Tron, Transformers, Voltron, Flash Gordon, War Games, GI Joe and a dozen other movies and/or sequels that are twenty years old, you know they're not doing it for the art. I'm waiting for the Moonwalker remake so we can see Michael actually turn into a car, he's had that much surgery. Someone who slipped into a coma in 1987 could wake up now and pick up where they left off, entertainent-wise. Not good, Hollywood.

Somebody else was right though, they should probably lose some weight if they're going attempt more physical comedy.

    Ghostbusters changed my life

    by Ecto-1

    I'm a rabid Ghostbusters fan. As a kid it was one of only a handful of films I got to see in the cinema as we didn't have a cinema where I lived. My parents didn't have a car so I usually had to wait until some other family member was taking their kids out of town to a cinema and ask if I could tag along. I had the Ghostbusters movie adaptation book and had read it a shit load of times before I even got to watch it in a cinema. But when I finally did, man, it just changed my life. Then when it came out on video, I had to pre book it and wait for weeks. When I finally got it, I must have watched it 20 times before it was returned to the shop. I'd watch it, rewind the tape, watch it again, and over and over. Drove my parents nuts. Once the rental-rush was over I used to rent it almost every weekend. Ghostbusters 2 was a bit of a let down, too much comedy and not enough creepy scares. But I have it on dvd cos it's worth it just for the court case scene. Anyway, as much as it pains me to be saying this, I think that they should recast it and have some new actors playing Venkman, Stantz, Egon and Winston. The original cast are just too old for this. Dan, Bill, Harold and Ernie will always be the original and the best. But I think that this film could still work with some new actors playing these great characters and hopefully lead to even more Ghostbusters movies.

    The "World of the Psychic" bit from GB2 was hilarious

    by Koborover

    Bill Murray is at his best during the World of the Psychic scene. The look he gives to the camera when that girl tells him about her Holiday Inn experience has me in stitches every time. And hairless pets on a psychic show, LOL. I could go on about this scene, it has more great lines. But anyway it was a nice bit of continuity to see Venkman as the host of a TV show after Dana told him in GB1 that he looks more like a gameshow host (notice that look Venkman gives and the music that comes up after she says this, as if he remembers the advice). Peter MacNicol as Janosj was also wonderful by the way.

    "I'd like to do some gynecological tests on the mother"

    by Larry Sellers

    I fucking hate remakes, reimaginings, reboots...but this sounds like it could really work. Ghostbusters was something I've always absolutely loved. Even GBII which had more good than bad I thought. Recasting or "the next generation" was one of my main concerns in a new film, but reuniting the old cast? With Stupnitksy and Eisenberg? They're hilarious. And teaming with Ramis is genius. My one worry is that while all of the episodes they've penned were heavy on laughs, very little actually happened to move the plot. Or it was just extremely underplayed and too too subtle (Dwight and Angela in "Job Fair"). But if Aykroyd and Ramis are involved, I'm sure they'll pad out the story with good stuff. The only fucking long-delayed sequel I've looked forward to since TPM.

    a bond fide classic, Ghostbusters 2 is great, "I worked with better, but not many", always cracks me up...

    The US Office is a piece of shit. I'm definitely not excited for this at all.

    Just like to say that Ghostbusters 2 wasn't bad

    by Dapper Swindler

    It was pretty darn good. Not as good as the first, but a worthy sequel that did not disappoint.

    Who the hell...

    by DocPazuzu

    ...does Bill Murray think he is? After that Garfield shit the only thing he has any right getting snooty about is if he gets offered the supporting role in "2 girls, 1 mouth".

    Bill Murray

    by What The Duck

    I heard he is doing the voice for the video game. I wonder why he wouldn't do the movie? anyway im sick of all these projects from my childhood being raped.

    Yeah, Peter MacNichols or whatever the heck his name is had a great turn as Janosh. "Yes! Command me, Lord!" He was great in Dragonslayer and on Ally McBeal as well.<p> DA scourge of carpathia! Da sorrow of muldavia!

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 1:58 p.m. CST

    Awesome! But please NO Stiller, Vaughn, Wilson, Farrel etc!!!!

    by theyreflockingthisway

    They're in every damn comedy film that comes out these days and I'm so sick of them. I spend their movies sat there thinking "when is the Owen Wilson cameo going to be - oh there it is. Now, I wonder when the Will Farrell cameo will be..." <br><br> I want the classic deadpan comedy of Murray, Aykroyd and Ramis - busting ghosts one last time. New Ghostbusting team? Who cares? We saw rookie and had a new recruit (Winston)in the first movie (and one in the second if you count Louis).

    This has the stench of being a paycheck movie

    by Xiphos_2

    Leave it be Hollywood, the firt two were plenty good enough thank you very much.<p> All this third movie will be is a crappy, hollow, cynical, retelling of the first with a "hot" WB network "star" in the Pete Venkman role. They'll make Spengler or Stantz a hot WB chick and the love interest for Venkman who is now an action star. <p> Fuck this movie, fuck it right up its stupid ass.

    We can expect "Ghost Busters 3" to mock Asian women? Seriously, I may be alone but I cannot see why the American version of "The Office" is considered even remotely humorous.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 3:35 p.m. CST

    Yeah since all of the other 80's hits have sequels

    by Roketopunch

    and have totally sucked. Let's make another. I know it's money in their pockets but look at the track record Die Hard = extra chunky suck. Indiana Jones= two gulp suck Let's go with another Ghostbusters will probably be = regurgitate then suck, regurgitate again and suck.

    Why GB2 sucks

    by Chief Joseph

    Because it was just a rehash of the first one and extremely un-original. I could give you a million examples. Both start out with the boys down&out and get finally get in business with a musical montage. Both have geeks in love with Dana that get possessed. Both have antagonists with phallic names (A line cut from GB2 even has Venkman mocking "Hard-on-meyer"'s name.) Both have Venkman trying to win over Dana and eventually succeeding. Both have suitmation creatures stomping on NYC.<br> Just pay attention to GB2 the next time you watch it and you'll see there's hardly anything original in it.<br> And yes, the score sucked. They'd have been better off just recycling Elmer Bernstein's stuff. (They couldn't get Bernstein for GB2 because he was pissed they deleted parts of his score in favor of '80s pop like Magic & Savin' the Day.)

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 3:47 p.m. CST

    re: Bill Murray participation

    by Chief Joseph

    Bill Murray doing this is a real possibility. Besides the good point made above that he did freakin' GARFIELD, he now has a very ugly divorce to pay off.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 3:53 p.m. CST

    Please don't suck. I was only in 2nd grade when Ghostbusters came out. The cartoon ruled. Then I was disallusioned when Ghostbusters 2 came out, that horried pile of crap. Please don't suck.

    GB2 was OK

    by Chief Joseph

    But not great. The JMS Real Ghostbusters episodes blew GB2 away.<br> "[Cthulhu] makes Gozer look like Little Mary Sunshine." - Egon Spengler<br> By the way, the entire Real Ghostbusters series is being released on DVD. Problem is, you have to buy the entire series. And we all know the series went to kiddie hell after JMS left and Dave "You Oughta Know" Coulier replaced Lorenzo Music. <br>Lorenzo Music's firing was allegedly due to either A) A Bill Murray temper tantrum, or B) a middle-management sycophant blowing an offhanded Bill Murray comment out of proportion.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 5:14 p.m. CST

    GB1 only 7.7 at

    by Chief Joseph

    I'm shocked at its low rating.<br> I voted (which I rarely do) it a 10; hopefully some of my fellow Ghostbusters fans here will head over and try to vote it up into the top 250.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 5:15 p.m. CST

    Lorenzo Music MADE Venkman in the RGB series

    I can hardly watch any of the ones with Dave "Cut It Out!" Coulier.

    Will Only Work If Ray Parker Jr Onboard

    by _Maltheus_

    ...with a gansterized version of "Who Ya Gonna Call?" Ok perhaps not. But it does sound interesting and I normally avoid remakes and sequels (which means I don't see many new movies anymore). They should bring in a young Slimer from the CW to get the kids to turn out. The original Slimer is too fat for the part now.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 6:42 p.m. CST


    by moonlightdrive

    This is the best news for ages. They HAVE to get the original cast back though (well main Ghostbuster's anyway) and also, definitely Slimer!!!! And he better not look all fucked up just because of advances in special effects technology. He looked shit hot before.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 7:34 p.m. CST

    How about making it in...

    by wyvern

    3D?I think it would work quite well with all the ghost.Long as there is still a good story and good acting.

  • Sept. 5, 2008, 7:39 p.m. CST

    Nope finky089 you're wrong...

    by TheWaqman

    They're a few steps above us AICN TBers. I just visited a talkback that had a user saying Fantastic Four was better than The Dark Knight......hopeless. Anyways I'm not excited about this news. The US Office isn't really that well written to be honest, prefer the BBC version but we should save that for another discussion. These writers really aren't suited for Ghostbusters, but eh whatever if they churn out a good script I'll be happy. Bring Murray with you! His non-comedic career is really good nowadays but I still want to see him Ghostbusters 3.

    Don't forget the courtroom scene from GB2, hilarious! Love it when the judge yells SHUT UP to the audience when they start to cheer for the Ghostbusters.

  • Sept. 8, 2008, 11:38 a.m. CST

    No it (GB2) does not suck...

    by El Gooche

    people just love to hate! And Abominable...Janozsh (sp?) and the courtroom scene alone make it an instant classic! "Oh but I woo-ed!" I totally did not now he starred in Dragonslayer until I bought the DVD a few months back!
