Ramis Confirms Ghostbusters 3 Shooting In Summer 2010
I hate to say it, but the more I hear about Ghostbusters 3 the harder it is to get excited about it. Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku? Bill Murray as a ghost? While it is only but speculation at this point and all of it could be completely wrong, nothing I have heard so far really instills a lot of confidence that they can get the magic back 20 years later. Like it or not, however, the film is most likely happening, and now Harold Ramis has given us an indication as to when exactly that might be.
In an interview with Heeb Magazine, which covered old ground such as Animal House, Club Paradise, Stripes, and Groundhog Day, Ramis confirmed that the film will center on both the old and new team of Ghostbusters, but more significantly spilled about the film's production timeline. Last week, Ivan Reitman hinted that filming could get underway as early as next year and now Ramis has confirmed: shooting will begin next summer and the film will most likely see a 2011 release date.
Readers out there have no idea how much I want to be surprised by Ghostbusters 3. I understand that most of my posts on the subject sound cynical, but I really want to sit in a theater and flashback to when I was a kid and learn the danger of crossing the streams and laugh as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man terrorized New York. So as we come towards New Years Eve, raise a glass of champagne and make a toast to the creative minds behind the sequel- don't fuck it up.
