A drawing of the New Ghostbusters cast is part of the New Yorker‘s daily cartoon. I guess the envelopes are pay checks or maybe instructions to their Sony employers on how to make a good Ghostbusters film. 😀 Stay-Puft looks in shape, ready to travel to Hollywood. :p

In an interview with Dan Aykroyd, Hollywood Reporter asked the Ghostbusters originator his thoughts on the new Ghostbusters female cast.
The Aykroyd family is delighted by this inheritance of the Ghostbusters torch by these most magnificent women in comedy.
My great grandfather, Dr. Sam Aykroyd, the original Ghostbuster, was a man who empowered women in his day and this is a beautiful development in the legacy of our family business.

Director Paul Feig (Twitter) showed a pic of the 4 actresses that presumably are set to star in ‘Ghostbusters.’ Or what I’ve also called it, New Ghostbusters.
The actresses playing new Ghostbusters:
- Melissa McCarthy
- Kristen Wiig
- Leslie Jones
- Kate McKinnon
I’m slightly familiar with some of Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig work. I’ve never seen Leslie Jones or Kate McKinnon from Saturday Night Live or anything else as I haven’t been an avid viewer of SNL in years. Probably about the time Ghostbusters 3 could have been out. :O Since this news broke and Ghostbusters is trending I’ve read some articles to attempt to get familiar with their “comedy backgrounds.”
More about New Ghostbusters to come.

Paul Feig, actor and director of the comedies Bridesmaids and The Heat tweeted the official “Ghostbusters III” news about directing a new Ghostbusters movie. He’ll be working with writer and producer Katie Dippold, who wrote The Heat and is a co-producer on Parks and Recreation.
I, Richard Roy am not familiar with Paul Feig’s personality, including humor or wit. When I read his tweet before I had read reactions from ghostheads I felt his tweet rubbed (as a life long fan) ghostheads the wrong way. I hadn’t wrote about it at that time, the internet had previously blown up when Paul Feig’s name came up for the then Ghostbusters sequel and the idea of an all female Ghostbusters cast was being talked about. Even if you’re not as “diehard” as a fan, you could see without knowing Paul Feig how the tweet could come off as sarcastic as well.
The same night Sony’s Ghostbusters Twitter account also confirmed the latest developments with “Ghostbusters III.”

In America (and probably elsewhere) its April Fools Day. A day that originally came about because newspaper delivery and social media didn’t exist. Neither did computers come to think of it. A lot of people in 1582 (402 years before Ghostbusters was completed and in theaters!) didn’t know their governments and faith dictated New Years was now and forever to be 4 months earlier. Somehow people who didn’t know this ended up as part of a practical joke.
Four Hundred and Thirty Two Years later I’m writing a post with new insights about Ghostbusters III. This isn’t an April Fool’s joke.
Fred Topel from CraveOnline interviewed Ivan Reitman. Any interview with someone involved with Ghostbusters is always asked about a third Ghostbusters movie. It was short, not pointless. See what I did their?
On 3D and film title?
Certainly there’s been a lot of talk about doing Ghostbusters 3 in 3D as well, and I don’t think we’ll call it Ghostbusters 3 either.
If the story is more important then the effects (something Bill Murray felt let Ghostbusters II down) and it makes sense for say a confinement stream to be 3D, I’m ok with it. Hopefully we won’t need the glasses.
Since ghostheads and everyone else have been calling Ghostbusters III, Ghostbusters III or 3 since President Bush was in office, this movie has been in “pre production” since another Bush was in office, it would be very smart for Ghostbusters III to be called something else. Along the lines of what Star Trek or The Terminator franchises have and are doing.
