Apparently, it’s back to business as usual for the producers.
What did you do, Ray?!
It’s easy to see why people (specifically, Tom Hooper, the film’s director) are worried dubbing The King’s Speech. Anyone who’s ever seen a film dubbed for television knows what this type of editing can do, and it’s not pretty. Case in point, the following nine examples!

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.
I'm speculating here, but one thing I can tell you guys with 100% confidence is that a trusted source of mine recently was accosted in a bar by someone who claimed to have just worked on a shoot for Ghostbusters 3 in the Windy City. Apparently the scene involved an actress being "slimed," and that was all they got out before coming to their senses about what's probably sensitive information. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that I think we'll be seeing a teaser trailer of some sort for Ghostbusters 3 at this year's Comic-Con. The timing is right. There were rumors it would start shooting this Fall anyway. Come late July, don't be surprised about reports from giddy bloggers, journalists and fans recounting their experience of a brand new on-screen, live-action sliming leading into Ray Parker Jr.'s iconic '80s theme. We can dream, can't we? To hold you over until this hypothetical event, check out the trailer for Ghostbuster starring Ernie Hudson after the jump.
