WHO YOU GONNA CALL?
Apparently Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson.
A surprise announcement from Columbia Pictures stating the studio has assigned "The Office" writers, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to pen a third chapter to the Ghostbusters franchise.
No cast deals will be made until the script is ready, but word is that Columbia wants to bring back original cast members. How old are these men now? Slimer is probably chillin' on a beach in Bimini. The State Puffed Marshmallow Man is wrinkled and poppin' Viagra, the Gatekeeper and Keymaster have upgraded to touchpads.
Don't get me wrong. I LOVED the Ghostbusters back in the day and no one should ever even think of making a third without the original cast, but...I'm skeptical of how it would fare in the box office.
Maybe this is one of those situations where you need to leave well enough alone.
