New Ghostbusters Closer Than We Think?

    Two movie trends have converged and brought us a project that had been rumored for years that almost no one thought would actually happen.

    Right now, remaking '80s comedies is hot ("Arthur" and "Beverly Hills Cop") and anything supernatural is really hot ("Twilight" and, uh, "Twilight"). To capitalize on these trends — or maybe just because it's not fair to deny longtime fans any longer — Columbia Pictures announced that a third "Ghostbusters" movie is in the works, two decades after the last one came out.

    Earlier this week, Harold Ramis stopped by MTV News to chat about his new Jack Black comedy "The Year One" (in theaters June 19). But we also asked Ramis — who co-wrote the first two "Ghostbusters" movies and, of course, starred in them as uptight-but-lovable Dr. Egon Spengler — to dish details on the upcoming reboot.

    Ramis promised that all the old core players will take part in the updated version, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis said. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."

    As of now, no decisions have been made about just who those new Ghostbusters will be. But with Judd Apatow signed on as a producer, the Internet has been buzzing with gossip that comedians from his cinematic universe, such as Paul Rudd and Seth Rogen, will join in.

    At the moment, Ramis is waiting on a first draft of the script, which is being penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two writer/producers on "The Office," who also wrote "Year One." "Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new 'Ghostbusters,' " Ramis said. "I'm consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and [original director] Ivan Reitman.

    "Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office," Ramis joked.

    After taking a jab at his old friend, Ramis assured us that Murray is definitely "in," even though the two haven't communicated directly about the project. "I haven't talked to him about it," Ramis said. "I want to talk to him about it eventually. I think we just need a script, because he's the thorniest of the group."

    Another open question is who will take over directing duties, since neither Ramis nor Reitman is planning on helming the picture. "I'm sure we're all hoping someone else will do it," the 64-year-old Ramis said. "It's a lot of work!"

    While we await casting and directing news, Ramis was able to shoot down gossip about certain stars once thought to be attached to a third "Ghostbusters." "Here's how old the rumors are," Ramis said. "Chris Farley was one of the rumors. It was going to be Chris Farley, Ben Stiller and Chris Rock."

    Whichever actors end up portraying the fresh crew of wisecracking ghost fighters will be in for a challenge. "Someone asked Seth [Rogen], and he said, 'What?' " Ramis recalled. "He said, 'That'd have to be one great f---ing script for anyone to touch that.' He's right about that."

                ^ none of them


                Chappelle is funny as hell but his humor wouldn't suit this movie. The rest are just not funny..

                but really we can't pinpoint who would be good or who would be bad for the roles, it all depends on the script and the style that it's going for. If it were up to me I'd let Akroyd and Ramis write the screenplay again since GB was their idea, but times have changed so we have to rely on the new writers, and the studio casting the noobbusters. Most of the original cast was from SNL, but SNL fell off hard so I hope they don't feel the need to include recent SNL staff just for the sake of doing so. Lesser-known actors may be better off for old school GB fans sake, but since money is the main issue nowadays, I wouldn't be surprised if this movie contained some wack mainstream "talent". I know I sound bitter as hell, but at the end of the day I'm just shitting bricks because I've been hoping this movie would get made for years, and now it seems to finally be happening.

                  I think it could work in some combination, if there HAD to be young Ghostbusters.

                  As for the script, I hope its more collaborative than anything, but with Akroyd and Ramis over-seeing the screenplay.

                      I've heard a whole bunch of new things from people who have bumped into members of the original cast etc

                      Supposedly Bill Murray said Ronn Moss is sure to be a new Ghostbuster, Bill Murray also said one of his conditions to get him to come back for a third movie would be to beef up Ernie Hudsons character Winston, he said he thought it was very underwritten before and he wants the character to be on par with Peter, Ray and Egon.

                      I know on IMDB it says Rick Moranis is rumored but I remember a few years ago he said he would never return to Ghostbusters, I still think it would be great if he did.

                      I heard something about Jack Black but I think it's just people talking, but I have to say I will be very reluctant to see Ghostbusters III if Jack Black is involved.

                      Keep an eye on this page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1289401/
