Default oh christ, they're making ghostbusters 3

During his interview with Mike McGuire on CISN Country 103.9 FM in Edmonton, Alberta, Dan Aykroyd announced that Ghostbusters III: Hellbent will be CGI. "I can do all the things I wanted to do for much, much less money," he stated. Aykroyd wrote the script, which was described by IGN as being "too technical", with a new team of Ghostbusters that were not clearly delineated and had no group conflict or leading personalities.[19] Bill Murray has been thought to have held up the making of a third Ghostbusters movie, despite Aykroyd's enthusiasm, due to his desire not to do another live action movie and his dislike of sequels.[20] However, he has now signed on to make the movie now that it will be CGI.[21] Harold Ramis is already attached. Sigourney Weaver has not expressed enthusiasm at doing another sequel.[22] Harold Ramis mentioned in 2005 that he wanted Ben Stiller to take Bill Murray's part in the then titled Ghostbusters in Hell.[23][24] The plot was to follow the three Ghostbusters attempting to find a replacement for Bill Murray's character while dealing with ghosts rejected from hell.[25] Aykroyd later elaborated, now that Murray is on board, that in the movie "We go to the hell side of Manhattan, downtown, Foley Square. It's all where the cops are--they are all blue minotaurs. Central Park is this huge peat mine with green demons there, surrounded by black onyx thousand-foot high apartment buildings with classic red devils, very wealthy. We go and visit a Donald Trump-like character who is Mr. Sifler. Luke Sifler. Lu-cifer. So we meet the devil in it".[26] Jason Reitman, the son of Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman, has stated little interest in directing the movie.[27]

I'm pretty sure they scrapped this idea. They are, however, putting out a video game in a few months written by Aykroyd and Ramis (and featuring all the Ghostbusters' voices, including Murray's) that's supposed to basically be Ghostbusters III.

No new game will be able to compete with the sheer, all-encompassing awesomeness of the original. Turn up your speakers for this one folks

wow, that really would have worked as a game. seems to capture the atmosphere of the films really well, the lighting effects at least are pretty compelling

unfortunately the company that made it had no rights to use anything from the film. Not sure if they ever really planned on making a game, they might have just made it to get some publicity and show off what they were capable of doing.

I think this might be the real one that is actually coming out.

Nice but there is something about the realistic atomsphere of the one that I like more. Also that Marshmallow Man boss battle just looks lame.
