After Harold Ramis died, Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 director Ivan Reitman decided he’d step down from the long-in-development-hell Ghostbusters 3 and let someone else take the reins. And, while I absolutely respect his decision, reading Reitman’s thoughts on what Ghostbusters 3 should be like makes me want to zip across to a parallel universe where he’s still the one in charge of it. To be fair, I already wanted to be there, because in that universe Egon isn’t dead.READ MORE

Every mention of Ghostbusters III is met with a tiny little eyeroll (and, more recently, wracking sobs) at The Mary Sue office, ’cause for years it’s felt like Dan Aykroyd has done everything short of sacrificing a goat to Our Dark Lord Satan to make the movie happen, but since Satan prefers a nice gift card from Bed Bath & Beyond all his efforts have been fruitless. But following the death of Harold Ramis (again, WRACKING SOBS), there’ve been some developments that make it look like this movie might actually claw its way out of development hell.READ MORE

“I haven’t talked to [Dan Aykroyd] about it. Somebody he’s associated with called me and I said, ‘I wouldn’t not do it, but it’s got to be good.’ You know, I’m not interested in doing anything I’ve already done, and I thought the second one was a disappointment. But I guess I’m interested in where that guy is now. I sort of see him as being Bernie Madoff’s cellmate in jail. Both of them being so orderly that they race to get up and make their beds.” – Actor Rick Moranis speaking exclusively with Empire Magazine about Ghostbusters 3 from his perspective.
The comedic actor has actually been retired from the life for quite a while but recently released a musical comedy album. Not too long ago, we had what seems like the most concrete Ghostbusters 3 news yet from Aykroyd. “We need four new ghostbusters,” he said. “It’s based upon new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University.”
For the record, I’m not the only one who loves Ghostbusters 2, right?

We’ve been wary about posting Ghostbusters 3 stories. First of all, it feels like there’s a new one every other week (if it’s any indication, our last post on the subject was titled “Part 73948 of the Ghostbusters 3 Saga“). And secondly, it never feels like it’s really going to happen. But Dan Akyroyd spoke recently about what the story would entail and it seems like a solid idea.READ MORE

And so it goes, another day in the life of Ghostbusters 3, the storied sequel that will probably never happen, but that Dan Aykroyd continues to keep alive no matter how many times Bill Murray tries to kill it. And then resurrect it for the sole purpose of messing with our precious minds. And now, Aykroyd is saying that they have hired new writers, coincidentally (or not) right after Murray appeared on Letterman saying it’s going to come down to the script for him.
I’m going to bang my head into a brick wall once I’m done finishing this post. You are all welcome to join me.READ MORE

In his recent appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman (the same one containing the announcement for the hologram banjo tour), Bill Murray once again played with everyone’s head on his stance on making a third Ghostbusters movie. As we know, Ghostbusters 3 is the Lazarus of possible sequels, and it always comes down to whether Murray (who played Peter Venkman, without whom there is no Ghostbusters) wants to appear in the movie. Usually, that answer is vaguely negative, and then Murray will turn around and say, “Yeah, you know, maybe.” Guess what he did on Letterman after saying “no” months ago? He turned it around again. Again.
Here is my theory: Bill Murray is going to waffle on this until everyone else — Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver, and Ivan Reitman — is dead and they are just completely unable to do another Ghostbusters movie. I’m convinced that’s his plan.READ MORE

Author Brad Meltzer wrote a book called Heroes For My Daughter, in which he wrote a series of essays about a variety of people including Lucille Ball, Marie Curie, and Christopher Reeve. Above is a picture of Reeve’s daughter, Alexandra, who showed up at a recent signing for the book and read the entry about her father. Are you crying yet? …How about now?

In case you’re going to be buying roses for someone tomorrow, but you find yourself in 12 different stores that are bereft of roses, Instructables has an excellent, simple solution for you: roses made out of duct tape. Also good for people who don’t want to receive roses because after a while, they smell and die. Chocolate, however, is edible and delicious! (via Neatorama)READ MORE
