Who ya gonna call? (Some female actresses to get the franchise back in the popular lexicon, then the male…) GHOSTBUSTERS!
Ray Parker Jr. thinks this is a FANTASTIC idea.
Ghostbusters is celebrating its 30th anniversary, so it’s time to revisit the classic paranormal comedy that launched one really disappointing sequel. Maybe two…
Not as strange as his public persona though.
Back on track to be awful.
What did you do, Ray?!
If I had to choose with a gun to my head.
Let’s hope he does better than Eddie Murphy.
“No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”
1996 would love these hosts!
Stop him before he turns into George Lucas!!
I once heard that Murray didn’t like the current script for ‘Ghostbusters 3′, but that internet rumor has now been busted by Venkman himself.
I guess there’s really no shame in failing to match the raw-star power of Dan Aykroyd.
The free screening of the Yogi Bear movie was almost too much for me. Now I have no attachment to the original cartoon but for anyone who did like it, this can’t be what you wanted.
Outspoken comedian Neil Hamburger, a Tim & Eric favorite, has taken it upon himself to launch an anti-Yogi Bear tirade on his @neil_hamburger Twitter account. Neil doesn’t mince words in his explicit bursts of disgust over the live action/animated hybrid featuring Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake as the voices of Yogi and Boo Boo, respectively.
I’ve fallen victim to so many Ghostbusters III rumors that I’m becoming a tad jaded. But hey, this latest claim has a date involved, so it must be legit.
There's some intriguing intel from the usually reliable Production Weekly this morning though: they're suggesting that Ghostbusters 3 has a start date."We're hearing that Sony Pictures is planning to put Ivan Reitman's Ghostbusters 3 into production in May 2011" tweets the tweet.
The nice thing about Twitter is that at least when someone uses it to lie they are forced to do so in 140 characters or less. But honestly, Sony needs to shi poop or get off the pot so Dan Aykroyd can move on to Blues Brothers 3D. (Empire Online)
Writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg have turned in their draft of Ghostbusters 3, and it's in Dan Aykroyd's hands now. That's either a good thing or a bad thing depending on whether or not you saw and enjoyed Year One or Blues Brothers 2000. Aykroyd's jazzed about it though. He told Vanity Fair:
"I'm working on the script now and those two – Stupnitsky and Eisenberg – wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it… we have a strong first draft that Harold and I will take back, and I'm very excited about working on it."
He then got into the changes we can expect to see with his character if this thing ever gets a greenlight:
"Now my character's eyesight is shot, I got a bad knee, a gad hip – I can't drive that caddy anymore or lift that Psychotron Accelerator anymore, it's too heavy. We need young legs, new minds – new Ghostbusters; so I'm in essence passing the torch to the new regime, and you know what? That's totally okay with me."
Totally okay as long as this new regime doesn't try to touch his script.
Watching the Yogi Bear trailer made me sad. I’m not sure if it’s because I’m too old to appreciate the film, or because a beloved memory from my childhood is…
Earlier today we showed you the poster for the hybrid live-action/animation adaptation of Yogi Bear, and now the trailer has dropped for you kids to enjoy! And make no mistake, it's specifically for you kids! There are CGI bears and real people co-existing in harmony in a national park with pies! Pies and pic-i-nic baskets!
The film stars Dan Aykroyd as Yogi, Justin Timberlake as Boo Boo, Tom Cavanagh as Park Ranger Smith, and Anna Faris as a documentary filmmaker looking to exploit the talking bears! Do you know what exploit means, kids?! No?! Well then you probably don't know what chloroform means either!
Yogi Bear sneaks into theaters December 17, 2010!
Check out the trailer after the jump!
Warner Bros. has unleashed the new poster for the live-action/animated Yogi Bear feature film. It showcases Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake, in bear form, hanging out amidst a cornucopia of ravaged picnic baskets. The worst part about it is that everything is only half-eaten. If they're going to ruin a slew of Sunday outings, they should at least destroy all the evidence. Park Ranger Smith (Tom Cavanagh) is going to have a sh*tfit when he sees what these mischievious bears have done. Real good example for Boo Boo, Yogi. REAL good.
Look for the trailer up later this afternoon. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some spoiled egg salad to attend to. (Yahoo)
Finally, something tangible to report about Ghostbusters that doesn't involve Bill Murray's menstrual cycle. Rather than waiting around for Ghostbusters 3 like the rest of us saps, the fine folks at Improv Everywhere decided to take matters into their own hands by producing a version of Ghostbusters Live. The funnymen who had originally made a splash with their Best Buy sales prank which featured over eighty participants, pulled off quite the stunt with only seven able bodied comedians recently at the main branch of the New York Public Library and every spook filled second has been caught on camera for your enjoyment! I never thought that performance art could be so relevant. It's really inspired me to get my own flash mob version of Downfall off the ground. And if those people at the ADL don't like it they can go to hell. They never understood my art. (DreadCentral) See Ghostbusters Live after the jump.
