    so long as its not a repeat of the second movie which was like a direct copy of the original with a different bad guy. that or a reboot. i am not sure i can handle too many more movies pulling this stunt.

    Well, if done right it has potential to be very good. I would love to see the special effects for the ghosts with todays tech.

    I just want the game to hurry and come out, if they make a movie I'm afraid they'll go for a remake, they seem to be remaking 75% of the 80's movies. Take a look at planned remakes, their doing everything from Escape from New York to Footloose.

    It will definitely never happen with the original cast. Murray has been against any involvement in anything ghostbusters for years. Somehow he was finally convinced to provide his voice to the video game, but that ended up getting scrapped too.

    Yeah, what are you talking about? They had all but Rick Morranis to do voices for the game. What are you talking about getting scrapped???

    He hasn't recorded anything yet but has agreed to lend his voice to the game.

    It got dropped by the publisher, its future is uncertain at this point.

    Well, they picked some talented writers. I think the market is perfect for a new take on Ghostbusters, especially if it's about new guys coming in and taking over for the retiring crew.

    Hmn, that could be awesome if they could pick the right guys to do it. Given the pedigree of the original cast that could be pretty hard, and really I can only think of Owen Wilson as a definite "peer" of that particular cast given the points in their career.

    Dan Akroyd name dropped Judd Apatow and Seth Rogen. In all honesty, any number of people from the Judd Apatow crew would be perfect fits. Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, John C. Reiley, Jason Segel, Bill Hader, etc.

    It's possible, but I doubt this will see the light of day.

    IIRC...I believe Bill Murray (who has financial control of some of it (i.e. owns a piece of the pie) and Ivan Reitman wouldn't sign off on anything pertaining to GB.

    Though it's been a while since I read that, so I may be wrong, correct me if so. If that's still the case, correction: I have *high* doubts this will see the light of day.

    I'm a pretty big fan and I would love to see a "new group taking the reigns" story. Whatever the case, of all the remakes that have been and will be made it would be pretty shocking if Ghostbusters got passed up. I wish the game would get out of publisher/development limbo.

    Peter - Ben Stiller
    Ray - Jack Black
    Winston - Robert Downey Jr.
    Egon - Tom Cruise

    I'm on the fence with Jack Black....
