Dr. Peter Venkman Says No to Ghostbusters III -- Is He Rescuing America From an Even Worse Sequel, or Is He Just Too Damn Respectable Now?
A quick post for Friday. Looking at Aintitcool.com, I found a link to an interview with Harold Ramis, who, in addition to being the director of the classic Groundhog Day, is even more well-known as uber-nerd Egon Spengler in the overlord of all big-budget action-comedies, Ghostbusters. In the interview, Ramis talks a little about the plot of Dan Ackroyd's script for Ghostbusters III. It's a very short mention, but for Ghostbusters devotees like myself, even a brief mention of what is now a certainly-defunct sequel, is like manna from heaven. Not that it sounds like it would be an awesome movie, but just the notion of a continuation of the franchise, a chance to redeem the Ghostbusters after the lackluster first sequel, well, it's fun to read about. Apparently, the Ghostbusters go to Hell. Anyway, take a read, and have a good weekend.
