If you’re like me, you’re probably pretty frustrated with the constant barrage of Ghostbusters 3 non-news that’s been hitting the Web over the past year or so. At this point, I’m convinced it’s never happening, and the sooner we all come to terms with the fact that last summer’s Ghostbusters: The Video Game is the closest we’re going to get to a third Ghostbusters movie, the better off we’re all going to be.
But if you’re clamoring for more wishful thinking disguised as news, I’d like to direct your attention to a piece I stumbled across on IGN. Reportedly, Stefano Paganini, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment’s product manager for Catalogue, and TV Series, announced at Rome’s Ghostbusters Day 2010 (yup, they love Ghostbusters in Italy) that “the script for Ghostbusters 3 has been approved so the engine is turned on!”
That’s all well and good, but until I hear something more official than this—or at least until Bill Murray stops vehemently denying that the project is at all moving forward—I’m going to assume that there is no Ghostbusters 3—only Zuul.
