Dan Aykroyd Confirms Bill Hader, Anna Faris And Eliza Dushku As 'Strong Possibilities' For 'Ghostbusters 3'

30 November 2010 10:00 AM, PST | MTV Movies Blog | See recent MTV Movies Blog news »

"Ghostbusters 3" might not have a finished script, a green light or a director, but it certainly is gathering quite the cast.

Indiewire reports that in an interview with Chicago radio station Wgn, scribe and original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd confirmed some of the casting rumors that have been swirling around for the past few months. According to Aykroyd, "SNL" funnyman Bill Hader is a "strong possibility" to star in the film, and Aykroyd is also banking on the participation of Anna Faris and Eliza Dushku.

Those three are added to the list of the previously on-board Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver. Aykroyd didn't mention whether Will Forte or original cast members Rick Moranis and Ernie Hudson, who were all rumored to have cameos, might be in for the film... but we wouldn't rule them out just yet. If anything's clear, it's that Aykroyd knows who he's gonna »

Rumor of the Day: 'Saturday Night Live' Crew for 'Ghostbusters 3'?

23 November 2010 8:01 AM, PST | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

Upon new rumors and casting calls for Ghostbusters 3 making their way online, website What's Playing did some digging through their Sony Pictures contact who may have leaked some potential casting news. "Asked whether he knew anything about Anna Faris being onboard, he replied 'Dunno. First Ive heard of it. Heard Will Fortes name mentioned and Bill Hader, but not Faris. Im not in on all that though, so she could be; [Sony] does like her'. " Forte and Hader landing roles alongside "Saturday Night Live" alumni could be pretty freakin' cool. Obviously, none of this is confirmed so keep this filed under "rumor" until further notice. Being directed by Ivan Reitman, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Sigourney Weaver are all said to be returning. Lead by Dana and Peter's lovechild, Oscar, a new breed of Ghost Busters are passed the torch »

The top 10 Rick Moranis movies

9 November 2010 8:07 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

He’s not acted in a film for a long time, but we still can’t help celebrating the majesty of Mr Rick Moranis. And here, for your deliberation, are his ten finest movies…

Given that he went into retirement from acting back over a decade ago now, for personal reasons, it's perhaps not too surprising that Rick Moranis' back catalogue of movies isn't as bountiful as many of his contemporaries. Yet, Moranis certainly knew how to make a comedy mark (although, as we'll discover, there's more to the man than that). And while the 10 films we're going to talk about here are of mixed quality, the common feature is that Moranis delivers a performance that tends to stand out.

I should note from the outset, incidentally, that we're not going anywhere near the risible movie of The Flintstones here. But that's just common sense for all concerned.

Top 7 Villains You Love To Root For

2 November 2010 9:38 PM, PDT | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.

It’s a time honored tradition that movies have a good guy and a bad guy. At the heart of every movie is someone the audience can identify with or root for to succeed. The only problem is, what happens when that guy (or girl) that you want to see win is the bad guy?

I mean, we’ve all done it before. Sometimes it just seems like it’s more fun to be bad.

Or at least that’s the idea behind Dreamworks’ Megamind. Will Ferrell plays your stereotypical villain of James Bond-like proportions. So, in honor of Megamind, this week’s top 7 is villains that you love to root for. You know you shouldn’t, but they’re just so bad, it’s good…

7. Dr. Evil (1997)

Recap: Dr. Evil is your average run of the mill cryogenically frozen mad scientist »

Ghostbusters 3 to Shoot Next Spring?

2 November 2010 9:33 AM, PDT | newsinfilm.com | See recent newsinfilm news »

Ghostbusters III may finally be stepping in front of the cameras next May, according to Production Weekly.  Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two, will produce and helm the third, which intends to bring back the original foursome of Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, plus Sigourney Weaver and maybe even the retired Rick Moranis.

The sequel has been plagued by conflicting reports, so it’s impossible to know what to believe anymore.  Aykroyd told Vanity Fair he was taking the script by “The Office” writers Gene Stupnisk and Lee Eisenberg and working on with Ramis.  Then FilmDrunk learned Aykroyd was merely providing his input, not rewriting anything.  Then, just to cross the streams even more, an Italian Ghostbusters website heard the script was approved by Sony.

The story will involve the “passing of the torch” from the old and busted ‘Busters to a new team, and Oscar »

Ghostbusters 3 Rumor: Production to Begin in May 2011

2 November 2010 9:30 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

If you believe that a third Ghostbusters movie is an inherently good thing, then get ready to cross your streams in excitement over the latest rumor.  Production Weekly is reporting that Sony Pictures is planning to put Ivan Reitman’s Ghostbusters 3 into production in May 2011.  Has some roadblock been cleared?  Is Bill Murray finally happy with the script?  Sure, Murray dressed up in Ghostbusting attire at the Scream Awards, but Murray is unpredictable.  He’s the kind of gent who will corner you in a dark alley so you’ll have a story that no one will believe.

Hit the jump for a recap of we know (or at least think we know) about Ghostbusters 3.

Here’s what we think we know about the next Ghostbusters movie:

Dana Barrett’s (Sigourney Weaver) son Oscar is actually Dr. Peter Venkman’s (Bill Murray) child. Venkman is a ghost. The »

Can It Be True Ghostbusters 3 Finally Gets a Production Date!

2 November 2010 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

So Who Ya Gonna Call? Well, everyone! It seems finally after years and years of whispers, rumours and the usual denials, 'Ghostbusters 3' is indeed going into production next May. Production Weekly have reported the schedule announcement and all seems peachy in the ghost camp. Obviously there had been various reports that Bill Murray wasn't overly keen on returning, that Dan Aykroyd was working on a script rewrite and that Slimer had contractual issues. But Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Rick Moranis are all reportedly reprising their roles. 'The plot will apparently involve the old gang training up some new recruits (one of whom is rumoured to be Oscar, Dana Barrett and Peter Venkman's grown-up son).' Ivan Reitman is also reportedly back behid the camera for this one. »

“Ghostbusters 3″ to begin shooting next summer?

2 November 2010 5:21 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

By Sean O’Connell

Hollywoodnews.com: Who you gonna call? Well, you might be able to dial up the Ghostbusters next summer.

File this under “rumor” until it can be confirmed, but the normally reliable Production Weekly tweeted last night that they are “hearing” Sony plans to put the oft-discussed “Ghostbusters 3” into production in May 2011.

Of course, we’ve heard this story before over the years, with one or two original Ghostbusters (like Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis) telling us a sequel was imminent while another (Bill Murray) declared it dead in the water.

If this Tweet is true, though, then “Ghostbusters 3” likely will be directed by Ivan Reitman from a screenplay by “The Office” and “Year One” scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. We’ve heard Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis would return, and we’ve also heard that the baton would be passed to a younger generation of Ghostbusters. »

Can it Be? Ghostbusters 3 Starting Production Next May?

2 November 2010 2:01 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

Talk about madness! We're not even sure if we care anymore. Awwww. Who are we kidding? Of course we care! Just like you, we're dying for Ghostbusters 3 to become a reality, and if this latest story is to be believed, we may actually be in luck!

Production Weekly reports that Sony's Columbia Pictures is aiming at a May 2011 start date for Ghostbusters 3, which could conceivably make it a part of their 2012 line-up.

As of now here's what we know. Supposedly Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky's latest rewrite was approved, with a little help from producer/star Dan Aykroyd. Ivan Reitman will direct with Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver all returning to star. The plot is said to revolve around Dana and Peter's lovechild, Oscar, and his newfound job as a "Ghost Buster"

Round and round we go.

Ghostbusters 3 to start shooting in May 2011?

2 November 2010 12:31 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Production Weekly are teasing us at the moment after posting on their Twitter account that they are hearing that the long-planned and often delayed Ghostbusters 3 is set to go into production (finally) in May 2011!

We guess that the rumours that Sony had approved a script for the supernatural comedy were true, and we guess that that script is written by Year One writers Gene Stupnitski and Lee Eisenberg. Ivan Reitman is attached to direct.

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis will (hopefully) return with rumours that the plot will follow Murray and Weaver’s son ‘Oscar’ as he inherits the Ghostbusting business.

6 Abnormal films to get you in the Halloween spirit

30 October 2010 9:06 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Halloween is the ultimate time of year to enjoy some well mannered scares.  Be it Saw or Friday the 13th, everyone has their own set of films to get them in the Halloween spirit.  But sometimes, a horror movie just won’t do.  Maybe you scare easy, or just don’t like horror movies.  I won’t judge.  But then what do you turn to to get in the Halloween mood?  Well, there are alternatives to scares.  Sometimes, the most unlikely of films are the most likely to get you in the spirit of good old Hallows Eve. Here’s 6 of those films.

Ghostbusters (1984)

I was at first hesitant to include this movie on the list, not because it doesn’t fit the criteria of a non-traditional Halloween movie, but because I assume a lot of you watch Ghostbusters on Halloween already, and you didn’t need a heads up to watch it. »

Things You Absolutely Need This Halloween To Be Considered Cool: Cannibal Girls!

28 October 2010 8:45 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

I grew up watching the original cast of Sctv on late night cable. It included John Candy, Rick Moranis, Catherine O'Hara Eugene Levy, Joe FlahertyDave Thomas, Harold Ramis, Shelley Long and Andrea Martin. In short I didn't know it at the time but I was witnessing something that would pass into comedy legend. I also grew up watching the films of Ivan Reitman including Ghost Busters, Twins, Meatballs, Stripes etc. Even when they weren't great they formed a backdrop for my formative movie years. They helped make it possible for for people like Bill Murray and Harold Ramis to give us Groundhog Day, Lost in Translation 

So where did Reitman get his start? 

Cannibal Girls!!!

Folks these are indeed humble beginnings but they do combine two of SCTVs golden age cast with Reitman. If you don't like truly no-budget gonzo cinema then fageddaboudit. But there's an undeniable charm and »

'Ghostbusters 3' Script Approved, Engine Turned On?

15 October 2010 10:06 AM, PDT | bloody-disgusting.com | See recent Bloody-Disgusting.com news »

My brain hurts from all of this Ghostbusters 3 talk. I almost wish we wouldn't hear anything until it's officially announced. The last we heard star Dan Aykroyd was rewriting the screenplay alongside Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, but thanks to Rome's Ghostbusters Day 2010 (October 9th), there's news that Sony has approved the screenplay. How trustworthy is the source? I dunno. The news comes courtesy of Ghostbusters Italia who was on hand where Mr. Stefano Paganini, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Pm Catalogue, Animation and TV series, had this to say: "I spoke about this night with my boss from Los Angeles. She allowed me to let you know that the script of 'Ghostbusters 3' has been approved so the engine has been turned on!" Pieced together over the years, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis, Sigourney Weaver all return to star, Ivan Reitman will direct. »

Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis Rewriting Ghostbusters 3 Script

8 October 2010 | Horror Asylum | See recent Horror Asylum news »

Who Ya Gonna Call!? Someone who has any idea of what the hell is happening with the new 'Ghostbusters' sequel would be useful. Dan Aykroyd has utter confidence that 'Ghostbusters 3' will happen and that Bill Murray will be involved (despite his negative comments about the project and the script) but it seems he is already having to rewrite the script that 'Year One' writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg ('Year One') had provided. Even Harold Ramis looks to be on board for the rewrite also. Ramis and Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver are all said to be returning. Dan spoke to Vanity Fair earlier this week: '[Bill] was talking about the writers from Year One, and I think he was reacting to the box-office success and the general public view of the film, which in my view was a very serviceable comedy, »

Dan Aykroyd Talks More Ghostbusters 3 ... Finally Some Good News?

7 October 2010 4:13 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

A bit more on the progress of Ghostbusters 3, this time coming from Dan Aykroyd himself, who revealed that things (despite whatever weirdness co-star Bill Murray is spouting) are actually moving along quite nicely in terms of the script he's writing with Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

In fact, according to Aykroyd in his latest interview with Vanity Fair, they've written Bill Murray the role of a lifetime!

"He was talking about the writers from Year One, and I think he was reacting to the box-office success and the general public view of the film, which in my view was a very serviceable comedy, and in the end I think they’ll make their money back," he tells Vanity Fair. "I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on »

Top Ten Tuesday: Unexpected Child Movies

Babies can come as quite a surprise… especially if you aren’t pregnant! In honor of Life As We Know It, which comes to theaters on Friday, we are dedicating our list to the joys of inheriting a child!

Top Ten Unexpected Child Movies

Honorable Mention: Superman The Movie

The Old Testament has inspired many works of art. Perhaps there’s none more famous than Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster’s Superman. Borrowing from the story of Moses, baby Superman (known on Krypton as Kal-El) floats thru the cosmos in a spaceship instead of a basket  drifting down a stream. The first scenes of Richard Donner’s 1978 Superman The Movie are set on the aforementioned planet Krypton as noted scientist Jor-El and his wife, Lara, decide to place their only child in an experimental space ship directed at the planet Earth. Marlon Brando and Suzanne York are heartbreaking as the »

Celebrity Twitterwatch: Sentimental Edition

A gay man at a fashion show. We're everywhere!

Here at Twitterwatch we admit that as we age, we look back on things that happened in the past with rose colored glasses. And we're not alone. It seems that celebrities often look back fondly on things in their pasts.

Lance Bass manages to stay in the spotlight despite not actually doing anything professionally that crosses my radar. And that's kind of interesting in and of itself. He hasn't made an album in years, and arguably his most famous moment was when he came out on the cover of People. Now people are trying to make that a "thing."
