Dan Aykroyd Says Ghostbusters 3 Will Film In The Spring

24 July 2014 1:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

You thought this story was over, didn’t you? You thought there was no way that Ghostbusters 3 could go ahead, not after the tragic death of Harold Ramis and the total non-involvement of Bill Murray. Well, you’re wrong! We’re all wrong! Dan Aykroyd says that Ghostbusters 3 is going ahead, and no one will ever convince him otherwise!

In an interview with The Today Show (via The Playlist), Aykroyd once more reassured us that Ghostbusters 3 is indeed going forward. Although details continue to be scant (when were they ever not?), Aykroyd did inform anyone who would listen that there are plans to start shooting in the spring, and that “it should be good.” Should it, Dan?

So far, there has been a wealth of detail about who won’t be involved in Ghostbusters 3, but very little about who will be involved. Ivan Reitman confirmed earlier »

Dan Aykroyd Now Says 'Ghostbusters 3’ Will Shoot Next Spring

24 July 2014 10:08 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Here's he goes again. When Dan Aykroyd showed up on “The Today Show” this week to discuss his new film “Get On Up,” talk of course eventually turned to the "Ghostbusters" series, and in particular "Ghostbusters 3." Never one to miss a moment to ensure everyone that the movie is happening (remember when he predicted two more movies?) or talk about plot details, he now says the paranormal franchise sequel would shoot next year. "It looks like we'll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I'm hearing," he told Carson Daly. "It should be good." But there is still not much known about who will be involved. Earlier this year, Ivan Reitman confirmed that he would not direct ‘Gbiii,’ and a few young directors have circled the project since. Phil Lord and Chris Miller decided not to tackle the franchise two weeks after we reported they were in the running for the relaunch job. »

Ghostbusters 3 to start shooting Spring 2015

24 July 2014 1:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Could the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 finally be heading into production? Well, according to Dan Aykroyd, it very well could be.

In an interview with The Today Show, the original writer and star said that, as far as he knows, Ghostbusters 3 will start production in spring 2015.

“It looks like we’ll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I’m hearing,” Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. “It should be good.”

It should be noted that is not the first time Aykroyd has said the movie is going into production, so perhaps take this one with a pinch of salt.

Here’s the video clip so you can see for yourself:

 

Ghostbusters 3 has been written by Ethan Cohen (Men in Black 3) but no director has been named, though Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) is rumoured to be the front runner. Aykroyd is to return as Ray Stanz »

'Ghostbusters 3' Begins Production Next Spring Says Dan Aykroyd

23 July 2014 5:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in March, we reported that production will begin next year on Sony Pictures' Ghostbusters reboot, although longtime director Ivan Reitman will not be at the helm, instead serving as a producer. Sony hasn't announced a replacement director at this time, but Dan Aykroyd recently appeared on NBC's Today show, where he revealed that pre-production will begin this spring.

"It looks like we'll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I'm hearing. It should be good."

Of course, we've heard similar updates several times in the past, with this long-awaited project drifting through development for a number of years, which was hampered by several ill-fated attempts to get Bill Murray back on board. When Harold Ramis passed away in February, Ivan Reitman decided he would only produce and help Sony find a replacement director. Ruben Fleischer (Gangster Squad, Zombieland) was being eyed to direct in May, but we »

Dan Aykroyd Says Ghostbusters 3 Goes Into Pre-Production This Spring

23 July 2014 4:59 PM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

I know, guys. I'm sick of this, too. But I love Dan Aykroyd a ton and I'm really hoping this isn't more blather. The actor sat down with the "Today Show" where he suggested the film would, in fact, kick off this spring!

No, I'm not betting my life on it, but Aykroyd seems to think the oft-announced sequel is en route.

"It looks like we'll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I'm hearing," Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. "It should be good."

But don't take my word for it, watch Danny's segment here:

As always, take this with a grain of salt and, as always, expect more soon.

From Depp to Hardy: 9 actors playing notorious real-life gangsters

23 July 2014 8:25 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Johnny Depp was recently photographed in full prosthetics to play real-life Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger in the upcoming movie Black Mass.

The 50-year-old actor was wearing a balding wig cap, fake teeth, a blue open shirt with a gold chain, and a black leather jacket as he shot the film's final scenes in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Benedict Cumberbatch recently joined the cast as Whitey Bulger's brother Billy Bulger, along with Parks and Recreation's Adam Scott, who is reported to be playing FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick.

The Scott Cooper-directed crime drama is due for release in cinemas on September 18, 2015.

Bulger spent 16 years at large and 12 years on the FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list before he was arrested in June 2011, aged 81. Prosecutors indicted him for 19 murders and he is currently serving two life terms.

Here are 9 other actors morphing into some of the world's most notorious real-life gangsters below: »

Kevin Feige Explains Why Peyton Reed Is The Right Choice For Ant-Man

15 July 2014 12:47 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Marvel ended up skating on thin ice with its upcoming Ant-Man adaptation recently when script changes led long-time director Edgar Wright to depart the project, leaving the studio scrambling to find a replacement. As the days turned into weeks, directors came and went, including Adam McKay and Rawson Marshall Thurber, both of whom turned down the gig. Other contenders included Ruben Fleischer and Michael Dowse, but Marvel ended up going with Peyton Reed, a comedy director known for Yes Man and The Break-Up.

More than a few fans responded to the choice with pessimism, bemoaning Wright’s departure and criticizing Marvel for implementing the script changes that forced out the well-respected helmer. Then, news broke that multiple screenwriters, including McKay, Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer, had been brought on board to further rework the script. Needless to say, that particular news nugget didn’t do much to pacify fans.

Liman To Direct "Victory," Pink Goes "Overnight"

27 June 2014 8:51 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Doug Liman ("Edge of Tomorrow," "The Bourne Identity") is attached to direct the World War II soccer-themed "Victory" at Warner Bros. Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. Gavin O'Connor is writing the script, a remake of the 1981 film of the same name.

The story follows a group of allied POWs preparing for a soccer match against the German National Team to be played in Nazi-occupied Paris. But amid the preparations, the French Resistance and British officers are making plans for the team's escape.

Meanwhile, Steve Pink ("About Last Night," "Hot Tub Time Machine 2") is set to direct the family adventure "Overnight" for Disney Pictures. Ruben Fleischer was previously in discussions to direct in February, but it never progressed.

Oren Uziel wrote the script which is described as "Home Alone" in a massive toy store. The story follows an absent-minded, recently divorced father trying to save his relationship with his son - »

'Hot Tub Time Machine' Helmer is Sleeping 'Overnight' at Disney

26 June 2014 9:23 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Back in February, we reported that Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer was going to venture into family adventure territory with Overnight, a toy store heist film set up at Disney. However, it seems like a deal couldn't be finalized as THR reports that it will be Hot Tub Time Machine and About Last Night director Steve Pink taking on the film with a script from 22 Jump Street writer Oren Uziel. The film is simply described as Home Alone in a toy store as it follows a father and son who win the chance to sleepover in some sort of amazing toy store like Fao Schwarz.. But it happens to be the night that some guys try to rob it. The father and son bond after having a rough relationship following a divorce while stopping the robbery that turns into a hostage situation. Funnily enough, the project was originally set up at »

Disney's 'Overnight' Lands Director Steve Pink

26 June 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Steve Pink, who directed the recent comedy remake About Last Night, has signed on to direct Overnight for Disney. We reported in February that Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) was in talks to direct, but a deal was never reached.

Oren Uziel (22 Jump Street, The Kitchen Sink) wrote the screenplay, which centers on a father and son who win the opportunity to spend the night in a massive toy store reminiscent to Fao Schwartz.

The absent-minded father, who is recently divorced, is trying to salvage his relationship with his son, while at the same time trying to defuse a hostage situation. The project was first set up at Sony/Columbia Pictures, but it was picked up out of turnaround last year by Disney.

Steve Pink also directed the upcoming comedy sequel Hot Tub Time Machine 2. He also has a few other project in development, such as The Yank starring »

'Chronicle' Writer Max Landis Shares His 'Ghostbusters 3' Pitch

18 June 2014 7:32 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After years upon years of delays, it looks like Sony might be ready to move forward with their long-awaited Ghostbusters sequel, with Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer reportedly circling the project. Screenwriter Etan Cohen revealed earlier this month that he is currently working on the script with producer Ivan Reitman, although a new rumor surfaced earlier this week that Chronicle writer Max Landis was brought on for the latest rewrites. But the writer shot down the report with the following tweets.

Hey guys, it pains me to say this, but you know I pride myself on being straight up person. Zero truth to the Ghostbusters report.

Max Landis (@Uptomyknees) June 18, 2014

Frankenstein, Me Him Her, American Ultra and Mr. Right come out next year. Working on things at Uni and Sony, and indies. GB3, sadly, no.

However, the writer was asked repeatedly by his Twitter followers what his Ghostbusters pitch would have been. »

Ghostbusters 3 – Max Landis rumours untrue

18 June 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Ghostbusters 3 is looking to be more and more real as each day goes by after the new rumours that Ruben Fleischer is in talks to direct. While he is yet to be confirmed, he is not directing Marvel’s Ant-Man which he was also in line for. But in terms of writing, former Deadline Hollywood reporter (and founder) Nikki Finke reported that Chronicle‘s Max Landis was set to work on the script.

Finke’s post, which has since been removed, claimed that Sony was impressed with Landis’ script for Victor Frankenstein and hired him to cast his eye over the script for Ghostbusters 3. According to Finke, Landis would be doing “more of a polish than a page 1 rewrite”

However, this was quickly squashed by Landis himself.

Shortly after the post was set out into the Internet and news sites picked it up, Landis took to Twitter to squash the rumours:

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Crucial 'Ghostbusters 3' Plot Details

9 June 2014 3:57 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After years of speculation and rumors, it seems that the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters reboot/sequel is finally moving forward, with Ruben Fleischer currently circling the project as his next directorial effort. It has long been reported that the story will feature cameos from original Ghostbusters stars Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who will help usher in a new generation of Ghostbusters. In a recent interview, Sigourney Weaver claims that she will only return as Dana Barrett if her son Oscar from Ghostbusters 2 is one of the new Ghostbusters.

Here's what she had to say to Vanity Fair about her conversation with director Ivan Reitman, who had already implemented that idea into the story.

"I said, I have one condition. I want my son Oscar [from Ghostbusters 2] to be a Ghostbuster, and he said, 'We've already done that.'"

Sigourney Weaver talks Ghostbusters 3, confirms Oscar will be a Ghostbuster

9 June 2014 9:33 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last weekend saw the 30th anniversary of Ivan Reitman’s comedy classic Ghostbusters, but the third entry in the franchise is perhaps one of the longest gestating movies in Hollywood development. Despite being in play since the early 90s, Ghostbusters 3 is yet to go into production. Ivan Reitman has ruled himself out of directing after the death of Harold Ramis and the latest rumour is putting Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) in the director’s chair.

However, one thing we now know for sure is that Oscar, the son of Dana Barrett, will be one of the new Ghostbusters. At least according to Sigourney Weaver.

The Aliens actress said in an interview with Vanity Fair while discussing returning for a third outing: “I said, ‘I have one condition. I want my son Oscar to be a Ghostbuster’, and he said, ‘We’ve already done that.’”

Oscar was last seen in 1989′s »

Ant-Man gets a new director and writer

8 June 2014 2:25 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It's been over two weeks since it was announced that Edgar wright and Marvel Studios were parting ways on the long in development Ant-Man over creative differences, leaving doubts on whether we would ever see the size changing hero on the big screen. Marvel were adamant they were on track for the July 17th 2015 release date, but a growing shortlist of directors, including Adam McKay (Anchorman), Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies), Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland), and Nicholas Stoller (Bad Neighbours), turning down the chance to replace Wright. But now Marvel Studios have indeed found their director in the form of Yes Man and The Break-Up director Peyton Reed. Not exactly the choice I would have expected, but they have a good track record of picking directors from out of left field. On top of that, Adam McKay has been brought on as "script contributor", no doubt revising Wright's and Joe Cornish's existing script. »
