I ain't afraid of no Ghost. Ghostbusters is coming back with a vengeance not seen since the Stay Puft Marshmallow man attacked New York City. The original movie is coming out on Blu Ray on June 16th and the new videogame based on the popular movie franchise is being released the same day as the Blu Ray release. The video game according Ivan Reitman producer and director of the two films is a reboot of the series. The video game had a budget of nearly $12 million dollars so much is expected from the game. The original cast members were brought back for the game for the voice talent.
The renewed interest in Ghostbusters has ignited rumors that the film series may continue. According to the Chicago Tribune a script is due next month from "The Office" writing partners Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, the same writing team behind the upcoming Ramis-directed comedy "Year One." None of the original actors have signed on to the movie as of yet, but there is interest in doing the picture. The interest is dependent on the quality of the unseen script.
Ghostbusters is controlled by a five-way partnership: Columbia Pictures, Reitman and three of the stars -- Bill Murray, Aykroyd and Harold Ramis. Each has a veto on any new project.
Murray had positive things to say last year about the new screenwriting duo, but it's of course possible that he will read the new script and decide to veto it. Aykroyd hopes not; he's already doing some cast daydreaming -- he'd like to see Alyssa Milano (who lends her voice to a character in the video game) and Eliza Dushku of "Dollhouse" as the first female Ghostbusters. "I think they're amazing," he said. "And I'm excited about the whole idea of getting this done."
The viewing public certainly is a fan of the movie. In 2008, a reader poll by Entertainment Weekly ranked "Ghostbusters" as the best comedy of the previous 25 years.
