APRIL FOOLS: Ghostbusters III To Be Released July 1, 2011

Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis, Hudson Already In Post-Production

CULVER CITY, CA – They’re back.  After 21 long years, the Ghostbusters will return to the big screen for the third installment of the sci-fi comedy franchise. 

“I was the last of the original cast to agree to do this,” the 60-year-old Bill Murray said on set, wearing his Dr. Venkman jumpsuit.  “It’s taken like twenty years, but when you see the film this July, you’ll know why it took so long.”

The original Ghostbusters show their age well, with all of the original guys in their 60’s except for Dan Aykroyd who is 58.   The updated Proton Packs that the gang wear have also been modified to be comfortable for each of the four Ghostbusters to wear---all of them now suffering from various forms of back aliments. 

Missing from the set however is Ivan Reitman, who backed out of the trilogy at the last minute.  In his place at the director's chair is Rick Moranis, who also reprises his role as the bumbling ‘Louis Tulley’. 

R&B singer Bobby Brown will be releasing the theme song to Ghostbusters III, “There Gouls the Neighborhood”.    Brown also sang the hit single, “On Our Own” for Ghostbusters II in 1989. 

The plot of the third Ghostbusters film has been a close-kept secret.  Plot rumors have circulated that the Ghostbusters are called out of retirement to fight off a rogue iPhone application that unleashes supernatural beings that wreak havoc throughout New York.  

Yes, we know this is cruel, but hopefully it will spread more fury to finally make a third Ghostbusters film to fulfill the childhood dreams of millions of lifeless nerds like us.
