Looking forward to the Games, But Im still praying for a live action movie! If they can all get together to do voiceovers why not go one step further and bust out them proton packs?

Ghostbusters 1 & 2 are legendary, and a Ghostbusters 3, IF they stick to the right formula could be awsome.

Fingers crossed this will happen.

I loved the first two films. Ghostbusters was my first drive-in movie ever and I will always remember how scared I was with Vigo in the second one. Ghostbusters 3 will not happen because of Bill Murray. He will only agree to it if it is all voice overs and computer generated like his "wildly successful Garfield movies" (note sarcastic comment). If this is a way for the gang to get back together, then so be it. I just often wonder how this franchise would have turned out if John Belushi would not have died and taken the role that Bill Murray had accepted all those year ago.

Did Rick Moranis have something better to do? Why isn't he in the game?

I'd love to see Akroyd and Ramis to take a stab at Ghostbusters 3. With Ernie Hudson involved, Murray would be the only Ghostbuster missing, and they should be able to lure him into it somehow. It would be cool to have Sigourney Weaver reprise her role also. I love Rick Moranis, but I don't think he'd have to be involved. I too wonder why Moranis isn't involved in the voicework for the game. It doesn't seem like he's been up to much except voicework anyways.

As far as the game itself, I'll wait and see what they do with it. Could just as easily be great or crap.

i don't want another live action Ghostbusters...Murray isn't that funny anymore and seeing these guys old and...fighting ghosts? doesn't sound good. i would hop on board a CGI movie though. i could see that working.

About a year ago there was a short video of footage from a GHOSTBUSTERS video game that was going around. It was only a sort of demo to pitch the project but it looked absolutely amazing.

If this is what's coming up I'm really looking forward to it.

I would like to see a Ghostbusters film pass the protonpacks onto a new generation. Perhaps their sons or something. All the original Ghostbusters then wouldn't have to be in it, and you could bring new talent on board like Chris Rock and Kevin James. Make it like a Star Trek Generations, bridging the gap film. You could then set the original cast to bed (all those who want to participate), and if its wildly successful, have the new cast carry on the tradition.

MAKE IT HAPPEN HOLLYWOOD!

Harold Ramis weighs about 270 pounds. I'm not saying a script can't address it and perhaps utilize that for comedy and some good quips... but damn... Egon cannot bemorbidly obese. He is a scientist.

Maybe they should have Wes Anderson direct it so that Bill Murray can look disaffected and miserable the whole time. Mix with a sweet pay check and Dr. Venkman may actually physically show up to play a role.

Why am I even saying this? They don't need more Ghostbusters movies, and if they make them they should just recast everything. The "old magic" is dead and none of these
men are funny or energetic anymore. The cast didn't even want to make the second one.

In a remake, Dave Chappelle = Winston Zedmore. HAH. "I'm bustin ghosts bitches! HAve some pancakes!"

Shatter24, that is probably the worst idea for this franchise I've ever heard!

You want a 'son of ....' treatment that has ruined so many others?

And Chris Rock?? I've heard enough black man jokes..

Now THIS is a comeback I can get behind. Not the remakes, the games. I think if you actually WATCH what the guys have done the past few years, they're still pretty sharp comedy-wise. Just watch Ramis in Knocked Up and tell me you don't want to see him again.

Well the footage shows scenes that take place in the first movie, as well as the second (court room scene). So I'm wondering if you will get to play through the first 2 movies events before entering a whole new script's worth of gameplay. THAT would be the way to do it. I have a looming feeling that the studio will make them split it up into 3 separate games to capitalize on multiple releases. But it'd be sweet if you could just play straight from from the first movie to the end of the new story being developed.

Now THAT is spooky. Think that the WGA will issue proton accelerator packs?

Shatter24 .... Bad idea! A son of ghostbusters is bad, and is a cop-out. "Dont cross the streams man"!

People bitching about the cast being too old, and unfunny, and talk of having them replaced by ANYONE, is a crime to movie making!


The script has to be funny, not the actors. Dry wit! is what Ghostbusters is about. And OLD TUBBY Ghostbusters, well that sounds like a comedy set up right there! In a way, this could almost work out to be the best one. Dont forget, Ghostbusters is about COMEDY not fx and youth.

Seeing 4, overweight, 50 somethings trying to squeeze out of Ecto-1, sounds hilarious, bring it on!

I'd love to see another one if it was going to have that same magic. But they are all too old now. Maybe do a new generation or something? With all the other crap Hollywood does wiht remakes and sequals, it can;t be any worse than Dukes of Hazzard, right? I don't know, probably best to leave it alone.

Dude! A good Ghostbusters game that pays homage to the originals with the original cast, considering the new techniques, graphics, and console capabilities, sounds like the best thing ever!!!

I just wanna run around in 3D with my proton pack blasting the hell out of dining halls trying to trap a Slimer.
