The Ghostbusters Cast Just Took A Fun 30th Anniversary Picture
A Ghostbusters reunion that saw Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Dan Aykroyd come together has produced probably the greatest image you’ll see all day. It sees the film’s cast joyously smiling and it is utterly contagious.

Ghostbusters 3 Will Not Feature The Original Characters In Cameos, Here's Why
With the news that Ghostbusters 3 is in the pipeline, as well as being a reboot, it's a good time for Paul Feig to address what we should expect to see in terms of nods or cameos of the original cast. Brace yourselves, folks; you might not like what he has to say.

How Tammy Found A Comedy Legend To Play Melissa McCarthy's Dad
Casting an actor to play a character’s dad in a movie or television show can be tricky waters to navigate. On the one hand there’s the importance of matching certain genetic features, making sure that actor has some similar features and is age appropriate. Perhaps more important, however, is having a higher understanding of personality and making sure that there are some familiar patterns and mannerisms that can be matched and show link between parent and offspring.

Ghostbusters Stars, Director, Fans And President Barack Obama Remember Harold Ramis
Harold Ramis' death has likely left many of us feeling a mixture of sadness and fond amusement as we grieve but also remember some of his best work in comedy. For those of us who grew up believing that regular scientists could achieve superhero status with the right equipment on their backs, Ramis' face may be best associated with his role as Egon Spengler

Ghostbusters 3 Details Revealed By Dan Aykroyd
Aykroyd wasn’t exactly forthcoming with new details, either, though he did promise King a role in this one, where he could “comment on what’s happening in Manhattan up there at Morningside Heights. It’s going to be quite a spectacular scene once the stuff starts to break.”

Dan Aykroyd Says Bill Murray Can't Stop Ghostbusters 3 From Happening
This past summer, Aykroyd finally admitted Murray was out of Ghostbusters 3, which to many movie fans—myself included—seems like reason enough to let this project die. However, when Aykroyd is not promoting his Crystal Head vodka, he's cheerleading for Ghostbusters 3. Speaking with Esquire, Aykroyd insisted that not only was the project still brewing, but also there's nothing Murray can do to stop it.

Bill Murray Officially Out Of Ghostbusters 3
"It's sad but we're passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill," Aykroyd said. "My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn't seem to be coming and we have to move on. It's time to make the third one.”

Dan Aykroyd Says Ghostbusters III Has New Writers
Like the last bit of news we heard on Dan Aykroyd's long promised—or long threatened, depending on how you look at it—Ghostbusters III, the latest update comes not from a trusted industry trade, but from a local news team. WIVB4 of New York snagged a few moments with Aykroyd as he signed bottles at a liquor store in Amherst, promoting his Crystal Head Vodka.

Bill Murray Calls Ghostbusters 3 A Possibility, But Don't Worry About It Ever Happening
Aykroyd had at long last admitted Bill Murray would have nothing to do with it. This sounded like the death rattle for Ghostbusters 3, and after hearing some of Aykroyd's horrifying pitches—including dispirited, crippled Ghostbusters, a dead Venkman, and some young blood in the form of female eye-candy

Dan Aykroyd And Chevy Chase Developing New Comedy
Over the years Dan Aykroyd has just become the human embodiment of a buzz kill to me. Once a truly funny comedian who was a crucial part to such comedy classics as Ghostbusters and The Blues Brothers, he has since aimed to do everything in his power to subvert and destroy all he's created by willfully - yet mindlessly - franchising these features.

Dan Aykroyd Finally Admits Bill Murray Will Not Do Ghostbusters 3
This is the first time Aykroyd has gone on record to confirm that Murray will not be involved in any sequel. And while the comedian tells the interviewer that they’re “not going to do a movie that exploits the franchise,” I think the only reasonable thing to do at this point is cut your loses and stop all of this foolish talk. No one wants to see a Ghostbusters film without Murray. We’re not even sure we’re be interested in Ghostbusters 3 with Murray on the team.

Dan Aykroyd Threatens To Recast Venkman In Probably Nonexistent Ghostbusters 3
Yes, that's right-- Aykroyd suggested to Empire that they could bring in another actor to play Venkman. He also said there's still more work to do on the script, so it doesn't seem like they've made any actual progress in the last, oh, three years or so. But none of that has ever stopped Aykroyd from plugging the movie that doesn't seem to be at all close to existing

Dan Aykroyd Throws His Hat Into The Ring For Dog Fight
Dan Aykroyd has joined the ensemble in a role that’s yet to be determined. That’s three comedians with Saturday Night Live roots contributing to Roach’s production (Ferrell and Sudeikis being the other two), though whether that’s a blessing or a curse is up to you to decide.

Did Bill Murray Shred His Ghostbusters 3 Script And Mail It To Harold Ramis?
I mean, he's not wrong-- throughout the entire development process of Ghostbusters 3 there have been plenty of us out there questioning the very concept, and at one point the movie was going to be not a sequel but a reboot

Why So Serious: When Funny Actors Go Mean
Comedians taking on dramatic roles isn’t anything new. Whether it’s Jim Carrey doing Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Adam Sandler doing Punch Drunk Love or Whoopi Goldberg doing The Color Purple, funny actors have a long track record of trying to expand their horizons. That said, there’s a huge gap between playing a dramatic hero, and a dramatic villain.

Ghostbusters 3 Hopes To Shoot This Spring, Moving Forward Without Murray?
Back at the start of this year I had the chance to sit down in a one-on-one interview with director Ivan Reitman when the subject of Ghostbusters III came up. While rumors were flying around involving potential casting and story, Reitman said with authority that, "Virtually everything you’ve read on the internet [about Ghostbusters III] is not accurate."
