Almost a year ago, we reported that Vivendi Games was working with Sony Pictures to turn "Ghostbusters" into a video game franchise. All four members of the movie team -- Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis -- provided voice and likeness rights for the game. In addition, writers of the original movie, Aykroyd and Ramis, penned the story for the video game that takes place in the early '90s, after "Ghostbusters II," during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.
Then talks of a new "Ghostbusters" movie started to pop up. Murray, Aykroy and Ramis have already hinted that they would be interested in returning for "Ghostbusters 3," if the studio to decide to make it. Soon after, "The Office" writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were brought on to begin writing the script. And that's where we are right now.
Below is a trailer for the game, which features the four main characters saving the city. It will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC, PlayStation 2 and DS.
Do you want to see a new, big budget "Ghostbusters" movie with the original cast?
Why the Apatow crew? The original movies were all PG-13 and doing that would probably make them R. Plus then the movie would probably suck because it would be not only different writers, but a different cast and not too many GB fans would be happy about that.
the game looks friggin' sweet. but what's with that voice over guy?
they must really having a hard time replacing that don lafontaine guy. they should have got him to record every word known to man before he died, so they could just piece together voice overs from it.
