Ghostbusters 3 filming next summer?

I struggled with the idea of posting this. The story about the development of a 3rd film in the Ghostbusters franchise is long and detailed and can be found pretty easily by searching our site for the word “Ghostbusters”. Anyway the latest news about the film is that the movie is scheduled to begin production next summer without Bill Murray:

At this point, you’d be forgiven for taking any Ghostbusters 3 updates with a big heaping dose of skepticism. But the projected summer start actually has a little weight to it, since it’s already impacting other plans over at Paramount. The news came buried in a Deadline story about Reitman’s upcoming Draft Day, a “Moneyball-esque” film that has Kevin Costner set to star.


According to the report, Paramount decided to hit pause on that project because there wouldn’t have been enough time to shoot it before Reitman was due on Sony’s Ghostbusters 3 set. Costner’s career is on the rise again, and Paramount’s definitely interested in seeing him back on top — the studio has him on board the Tom Clancy thrillers Jack Ryan and Without Remorse, with a possible standalone spin-off planned for the future. It seems doubtful they’d drop a promising sports pic with him if Reitman’s Ghostbusters 3 plans were less than solid.


If all goes according to schedule, the timing for Ghostbusters 3 couldn’t be better. A mid-2013 shoot suggests a 2014 release date, which would coincide with the first Ghostbusters‘ 30th anniversary.

This is all exciting if true but you know what? Fuck that. I’m not getting excited. My inner child had enough abuse growing up and I won’t put lil tony through that. I could tell stories about how I broke VCR’s watching that 1st movie over and over again. I’ll leave this to you guys to decide whether or not YOU get excited. That’s all for now…
