Ghostbusters 3 is confirmed!

Thanks to Wicket Toys & Collectible for the heads up. I now know that Ghostbusters 3 has indeed been confirmed! Holy cool is that?! After years of speculating and playing the guessing game!

It took approximately 21 years to the year, and we're close to seeing the original cast of Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Bill Murray jumping again into their jumpsuits and proton backpacks in the highly anticipated sequel to the first two 'Busters movies. Dan Aykroyd mentioned that the film would probably start filming sometime next year and would hit the theatres in 2012!

Bill Murray who portrayed Peter Venkman in the GB franchise accepted the award for "Best Horror Movie" award for the Zombieland movie during the recent Spike SCREAM Awards last Tuesday in Los Angeles. Murray appeared on stage in a dramatic fashion in his full Ghostbusters uniform before sliding a proton pack onto his back to the delight of the roaring crowd who immediately gave a standing ovation. Check out the video:
Funny enough, over the years Murray was the only original Ghostbuster consistently stated that he was not interested as he disliked sequels and now we finally get a 'confirmation' on  the fate of the movie from the man himself! In a March 2010 appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman, Murray even played down his return to Ghostbusters III, stating that "I'd do it only if my character was killed off in the first reel". Glad he's finally came to his senses!
Can't wait!!!! On the geeky front, just imagine the collectibles/toys/action-figures that would accompany the film itself! Bring it on...

Haha, glad we could be of service. The reason Murray wasnt thrilled about a threequel was actually because he dislike the script that was originally being penned. Dan Aykroyd actually took over the project and rewrote the whole script. So now the wheels are turning. =]
