Yes, Virginia, There Is A “Ghostbusters 3”.










Now that Dan Akroyd, Bill Murry, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis have almost no collective careers to speak of, it’s time to greenlight “Ghostbusters 3”, twenty years after the travesty that was the second release in the tale.  “Ghostbusters 2” was released in 1989 and even though sported a huge 3 day opening take at the box office, left an ectoplasmic residue aftertaste in the mouths of fans. 

The film tackled how New York residents have too much anger(really? Huh, hadn’t noticed), and that’s what was causing all the ghostly nonsense.  It came off as two hours of loaded drek.  So, long after the sting of the flop, the crew has returned to put a newer, shiny bow on the franchise.  The original cast shall return, along with recently signed Sigourney Weaver. 

The movie is also rumored to have a couple young film vixens, Elisa Dushku and a big favorite here at THE THROWDOWN, Alyssa Milano.  Both these gals are vets of supernatural television shows, with Dushku being a regular on “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and now in “Dollhouse”.  Milano carried the T.V. hit “Charmed” for a number of seasons, and has also recently done voice work for the Ghostbusters video game.

The only problem with this is that Akroyd recently said:

I’d like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let’s revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family but let’s pass it on to a new generation.”

Great.  So it’s gonna be one of those, X-Men 3 deals? Ug.  Leave me out.  If there’s one thing worse than washed-up has-beens, it’s paying to see wash-up has-beens, and instead getting brand new never-gonna-make its.  Did that make sense?  Of course it did, my silly little monkeys.  Consider yourself Throwndown.

      A five minute cameo in Zombieland and some Podcasts hardly qualifies as “working all the time”. And I’m not your buddy, pal.

    I don’t think its fair to claim that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson are has beens. Bill Murray was nominated for an Oscar for performance on Lost in Translation and has since been numerous films. Dan Aykroyd is currently starring in a film called Dorothy of Oz and was a voice actor in upcoming film Yogi Bear. Harold Ramis is writer-director for films like Year One and has apperaed in the films like Knocked Up. Ernie Hudson was on the HBO series Oz and has appeared in the Fox TV series Bones and will be in upcoming film called Pastor Brown. My point is all the actors have long since found a life after Ghostbusters. Also from what I heard about the upcoming movie Ghostbusters film is that it will focus more on the new cast as the new generation of Ghostbusters and less on the old generation.
