Ghostbusters 3 Coming In 3D?
So it’s really starting to look like Ghostbusters 3 is a go, but we’re living in a post-Avatar world which means just about anyone making a big summer tentpole like this is bound to be looking for ways to take things up a notch. For Ghostbusters 3, that may mean 3D.
Marketsaw claims that director Ivan Reitman is planning to push the Ghostbusters into three dimensions by shooting his movie in stereoscopic 3D. Stereoscopy is a process used to record an image giving it the illusion of depth. If true, that should put it on par with most of the great 3D we’re getting used to, you’ll be able to throw on your Real D glasses and watch Slimer float over the audience.
I’ll be the first to say that not every movie needs to be in 3D, and the recent rush to respond to Avatar by forcing them all into the format has, in some cases gone too far. But not here. Ghostbusters 3 is the ideal candidate for a great 3D experience. It’s an effects heavy film, full of floaty ghosts and weird plasma explosions; great fodder for a 3D hungry audience.
The last word on Ghostbusters 3 was that Ivan Reitman is on board, confirmed as director. The script is being written somewhere over at Columbia Pictures by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. Most importantly, the cast all now seems to be on board with doing it. Sigourney Weaver recently gave in and said she’d be up for another spin in Ecto 1 while Bill Murray, Dan Ackroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson are all expected to return in some capacity.
