Ghostbuster 3, could it be?

Ghostbuster 3, could it be?

Could it be finally happening? Do we even want it to happen? The seemingly never ending saga of Ghostbuster 3 continues with reports surfacing that it might actually begin filming mid-2013.

After years of will he or won’t he (Bill Murray), speculation on what the plot might consist of (introducing a new generation of Ghostbusters to carry the torch), and whether Ivan Reitman would direct or not, Paramount appears to be adjusting shooting schedules to accommodate the threequel.

The way in which this news has surfaced is a little convoluted, however reports are that Paramount in considering its slate of films going into production has shelved the project ‘Draft Day’ that involved Ivan Reitman and Kevin Costner due to pressures with wrapping that film before Reitman is obligated to start Ghostbusters 3 production for Sony.

‘Draft Day’ is a film about the events of draft day in the American football league, specifically centred on the Buffalo Bills. With only a short window of time available Paramount has elected not to proceed with the film for now and to look at it again once Reitman and Costner’s schedules are more flexible.

Once again, no real announcement on GB3, however if schedules are being managed around Reitman’s shooting obligations, it’s starting to look more realistic.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
