So I see Variety has reported that the likelihood of a â€˜’Ghostbusters 3” is as good as done as last night’s dinner (thanks babe! Love some beef!).
According to the article, “The Office” co-exec producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky have been working on a script designed to bring back the original cast – Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.
And that’s just the problem – as I reported a couple of weeks ago, it’s going to take a miracle for this film to happen – because most of the cast don’t talk any more, and don’t want to. There’s going to need to be a lot of therapy sessions, some excessive venting and maybe a fist-fight or two before the original team head back to the firehouse… if they do. Heck, none of them have even signed on yet – - and won’t until they see the script.
In addition, Sony aren’t into sharing their backend points and profit percentages any more – not like they were in 1984 anyway. The original team aren’t going to do as well from any “Ghostbusters” film nowadays, as they did back then.
Will they be happy with standard scale and two points in the T-Shirt sales?
