I’ve been waiting for Ghostbusters III to be made since 1990. I’ll let that sink in for a moment. True, I didn’t know generally movies aren’t usually fast tracked (its in an industry term) just like that. My 12 year old self thought about it, figured out the necessary logistics (even though I didn’t know that word yet) and crunched the really easy numbers. The conversation with myself went something like this:
If it took Ghostbusters II 5 years to get made, then Ghostbusters III will be made by 1995.
Going around in circles about why it was taking so long (in the pre internet days) about why the “easiest” movie to be made wasn’t could get frustrating. I’m less then a month away from boarding a train (what train, what are you talking about?) to leave 35 behind. I still remember walking home from school in the early 1990s thinking and feeling “Ghostbusters III.”
As much as I’ve talked about Ghostbusters III on and off-line, regardless of the countless rumors, tidbits, actual news, cheerleading, and the same quotes from Harold, Dan, Ivan, Ernie, (whose always the last to know) and on the rare occasion Bill I’ve taken a “wait and see; and believe it when it actually happens” approach.
