If you can remember the past 20 years of cinematic news, then you’ve probably heard those feint hints and whispers about Ghostbusters 3.
Out of the great beyond of the interwebs, a back alley blog will proclaim…
“Hey! Hey you guys! They’re gonna finally make a GB sequel!”
And while we rejoice in a nerdgasmic haze, our pants sullied with shame, we’re soon struck by a stiff slap of reality as the news almost inevitably turns out to be rumor, gossip, or some other unfounded form of speculation.
Well, today we’ll have to weather another “scoop” by a “studio insider”. Here it is:
Paramount chose not to make it in the small window that Reitman has before he is expected to finally get the long-gestating Ghostbusters reboot in front of the cameras next summer for Sony Pictures (sans Bill Murray). … It would be tough to find room to squeeze in the football film and get done before Reitman goes back to Ghostbusters duty. Paramount insiders tell me that if the film can’t happen in this nearly impossibly short window, the studio could simply hang on to Draft Day, and make it after Reitman and Costner finish their obligations.
Now, even if this little bit of info is true, and it very well could be, studios are notoriously fickle with their shoot dates. Remember Jurassic Park sequel that was supposed to release last year?
Yeah… me neither.
For even worse news, Bill Murray is definitely, absolutely, without a doubt refusing to return. He’s too busy golfing… and having acid flashbacks.
