I think Emma Stone would make a good Ghostbuster. Emma Roberts?

I'm just saying the names being thrown around are kind of boring, let's see some variety. Kaitlin Olson is the only name I've seen that could be as funny as the guys from the original movies.

If they got Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Sarah Silverman, and Julia Louis Dreyfus, I'd totally be on-board.

But if it's McCarthy and the other airheads who were in BRIDESMAIDS, I'm out.


Totally agree. If Melissa McCarthy's anywhere near this project, you can just flush all of the class down the drain.

Katharine Hepburn. She proved great at physical comedy in Bringing Up Baby.

Gillian Anderson Pleads for 'Ghostbusters 3' Role
9:53 PM PDT 10/13/2014 by Ryan Gajewski

The X-Files alum took part in a Reddit AMA on Sunday, where she was asked whether she has any interest in the new all-female Ghostbusters reboot. Anderson didn't seem to be familiar with the upcoming Paul Feig-directed project but was enthusiastic about it.

"OH MY GOD, I just looked it up online," she wrote. "Paul Feig, cast me now! Start a Twitter petition! I'm free!!!!! I'm free I'm free and I'm funny, goddamnit!"

When someone offered to help drum up interest in the petition, Anderson responded: "MAKE IT HAPPEN!!"


Anderson, who has recently appeared on NBC's Hannibal and Crisis, was also asked whether any progress was being made on a third X-Files film. "Sorta kinda," she teased. "Keep your ears to the ground."

Anderson was doing the AMA to promote her new sci-fi novel A Vision of Fire that she co-wrote with best-selling author Jeff Rovin.

The new Ghostbusters film picked up steam last week when it was announced that Feig would be working on the script with his The Heat screenwriter Katie Dippold.
Scully as a Ghostbuster? Haha... I'd see that.

‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot: Will Bill Murray Return in Smaller Role?

Paul Feig is working on an all-female reboot of “Ghostbusters” for Sony Pictures, but that doesn’t mean the new film won’t include Bill Murray. According to insiders, the studio would jump at the chance to sign Murray for either a cameo or supporting role. The real challenge will be convincing Murray, who for years has resisted making another “Ghostbusters.”

“The studio gets really crazy about it,” Murray told Variety during a sit-down interview for this week’s cover story. “What they really want to do is resurrect a franchise. The first one was a spectacular movie, one of the greatest movies. The second one was”–Murray makes an unimpressed sound. “It had some moves. It had a few good scenes in it.”

Murray is one of the few actors in Hollywood who can’t be bought. “People say, ‘Bill, you could get so rich!'” Murray says. “I’m ok.” He looks down at his red pants and plastic watch. “I don’t look it, but I’m doing ok.”

Over the years, Murray has looked over several treatments for a third film. “I read one that Danny [Aykroyd] wrote that was crazy bizarre and too crazy to comprehend,” Murray says. And then there was the script where his character died and returned as a ghost. “It was kind of funny, but not well executed,” Murray says. Sony was interested, and director Ivan Reitman (who made the first two films) tried to get Murray onboard. “It was clear he just didn’t want to engage,” Reitman says. “His head was in a whole different place as an actor. He wanted to do smaller roles where he didn’t have to take on the weight of the lead.”

Aykroyd recalls a similar conversation with Murray. “He said to me, ‘I’ve done the character,'” Aykroyd says. “I totally understand. The studio knew in their hearts that without Murray there may be nothing there. Plus, ‘Ghostbusters’ needs a shot of youth. It’s got to be handed to the new generation.”

Still, that doesn’t mean Murray couldn’t be there to pass the baton. During his interview with Variety, Murray left the door open–by a hair–indicating that he’d consider another “Ghostbusters” if the idea felt fresh. Feig and Katie Dippold (“The Heat”) are now working on the new script. “Those guys, Danny and Harold [Ramis], were at the top of their game,” Murray says. “They were burning nitro at that moment. Unless you have a really clear vision, you’re always trying to recreate that.”

Murray says he’s happy right now with the trajectory of his “Ghostbusters”-free career. He’s starring in the Weinstein Co.’s “St. Vincent,” and he’s wrapped a new Cameron Crowe film (out in May 2015) and the Barry Levinson comedy “Rock the Kasbah.” “I got like three in a row that could be really great,” Murray says. “I could be sitting in a different chair in a year. If all three of these are as good as I think they are, it could be easy. I won’t have to think about ‘Ghostbusters’ all the time.”

I'd be more interested if they treated it as a 3rd movie, had some cameos, references to the previous movies. Still don't care for the direction, but that would at least be something...

that would be the ultimate kick in Aykroyd's fat gut... he's been trying to get Murray on board for decades to no avail, then with a new director/writer, he signs up? LOL, that would be epic.

That interview was conducted before the announcement was made.

Murray would only appear in this if Wes Anderson helmed it.

I bet if Bill had a do over he would have done GB3 15 years ago and had his character killed off so he wouldn't have to talk about this anymore, even if it was a bad film.

Anderson as a Ghostbuster could be great. They could do a trilogy and at the end of the third film she still doesn't believe in ghost. The other three women look at her and then all punch her in the gut. Oh, nevermind, that is what Mulder should have done around season 6 of The X-Files. I probably would have murdered Scully around season three.

Where the hell was Aykroyd during that reunion? He's on the cover and has been such a prominent promoter of getting GB3 made, but he is missing from that segment?

Not a morning person perhaps?

Stupid fucking cover. Sigourney Weaver was never a Ghostbuster.
