    Nothing is confirmed. How many times in recent months have we had a cast memebr of a big franchise drop hints that they were gearing up to start producoion on the next part only for everyone else involved to rubbish it. Ghostbusters 3 is certainly in developm,ent but it coiuld be a long way off.

    She hasn't dropped hints, she has definitively said it is happening.

    The video is here, but she does give away a potential spoiler.

    Surely this is a bannable offense?

    Were they not classing the recent video game as the third one?

    And Weaver ran a mile from voice acting in it, methinks she's trying to get back in the good books.

    You're the first person I've ever heard of not liking Ghostbusters. Maybe the types of humour used or the thrust of the movie just isn't to your taste. Oh well!! The rest of us are huge Ghostbuster fans :)

    You're obviously dead inside.

    In fairness the second one was crap but I like it nostalgia reasons. The 3rd could be potentially just wrong or great, depends.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,696 ✭✭✭ fonecrusher1


    Always thought the first ghostbusters was really good. Couldnt care less about the sequel.
    A third one? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ KA-CHINGGGG!!!!
    No doubt this has been pushed by the accountants at Columbia pictures.:rolleyes:


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,438 DingDong


    The second one didn't age as well as the first not that it was bad though. Ghostbuster is one of them great childhood films really looking forward to part 3.

    Ghostbusters 3: a bunch of old geezers running around in jump suits zapping spooks!!:eek:
    Not sure if i like the current trend of reviving 1980's/early 90's movies, seems a little money mad to me.
    Indiana J, rambo, rocky, universal soldier etc.
    Certain movie characters just dont age well, i fear this may be the case with GB3.

    Universal Soldier:eek:

    The first one was mediocre imo

    How many did they actually make?

    Just getting some memories of the Lundgren/Van Damme fight now

    Weren't there rumours going around earlier in the year that GB3 would be all CGI to avoid ageing actors?

    Also the last Rambo movie was one of the best in the series imho.

    Do you mean cartoonish cgi like shrek or proper life-like cgi?



    btw... im a big fan of rambo & i thought no.4 was weak! Thought the last rocky was pretty good, much better than rocky 5.

    :eek: - how dare you! :mad:

    The first one is easily one of my all time fave movies, i must have seen it over a hundread times, seriously....i know the script word for word!.....the second one was crap, horrid....never watch it.

    I'm hoping they don't "dumb down" the second or "kiddify" it like the second.

    Hate to say this but it sounds like a classic hollywood easy-money exercise. Hope im wrong.

    The first, at the time, was considered a horror. A comedy, but also a horror.

    It was great. They just got the timing right, and the actors right for the parts. Egon was our first weird brain guy. Ray was the usual loveable guy. Winston was the token black guy, who was only given more character when put into the cartoon. Peter was just the right amount of asshole.

    Dan couldn't play Ray again. He's changed as an actor too much imo. He'd changed too much by Ghostbusters 2.

    Bill could pull off peter at any point, but it's writing the character right. More difficult.

    Egon and winston would just be pointless additions in characters now. We've had the mad scientist done to death ever since, and we don't need the token black guy.

    Could do without this film tbh. The original was a classic!

    From what I read the story is supposed to be about the Ghostbusters retiring and passing the torch to a younger bunch of Ghostbusters.....largely because of the age issue.
    But I understand Dan Akroyd has been gagging to get a third one out since the second so maybe it won't be too bad.

    Someone who doesn't like Ghostbusters is probably a huge Michael McIntyre fan and will laugh at anything that comes out of his mouth.

    Yeah i thought i read Apatow and co. were taking over the franchise and it would be Seth Rogan, Steve Carell, Paul Rudd & i assume that black guy that turns up in most of their movies* will play..............eh, the token black

    heh, funny enough I just watched the 2 films there. :D

    Ghostbusters to me is the original cast, not handing the torch to the "funny guys" of the moment.

    Though you could have something like the Ghostbusters being rivals to a bunch of crap ghost-busting imitators, sorta like all those "ghost" detectives you see on those wimmen channels. :pac:
