Ghostbusters 3 has been thrown around almost as much as Men in Black 3 at one point. That film finally saw the light of day and it wasn’t all that bad. The key to a successful Ghostbusters sequel (if there is a key at all) is Bill Murray and the entire original cast returning. If you take out one of them for no good reason then you’re left with something that shouldn’t be called Ghostbusters.
Deadline is reporting that a third film will indeed be shooting next summer, with director Ivan Reitman returning, but not star Bill Murray. It’s unclear if this will be a sequel or a reboot, so I guess we can’t completely rule this one out, although Ill admit I’ve stopped caring about the progression of this long-discussed and un-needed sequel.
