?Ghostbusters 3 makes me tired. It’s just too hard to figure out what’s actually happening — or, more specifically, not happening — amidst all the outright lies, mistaken beliefs and total inaccuracies. This should give you an indication how much weight I give to what Dan Aykroyd said on some radio show last week. From /Film:

A Bloody Disgusting
reader e-mailed the site stating that Aykroyd was on WGN Radio Chicago
where he said the film is currently casting and they’re “open to finding
some fresh faces.” Some of the names mentioned as “strong possibilities” are Bill Hader, Anna Faris and the previously mentioned Eliza Dushku. Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver are also going to be returning, according to Dr. Stantz himself.

Whatever. I can’t even get upset at these casting rumors, because I have zero faith this is true, or that the movie will actually ever get made. Bill Murray will have to get the Ghostbusters 3 logo tattooed on his forehead before I believe this movie is coming out.
