Stax here with my reaction to the screenplay for Ghostbusters 3: This page first draft dated March 10, is by actor Dan Aykroydbased on a story by Aykroyd and co-star Harold Ramis. Sadly, this highly anticipated sequel appears quite ghostbussters now.
The many reasons why this Columbia Pictures -based project likely won’t get off the ground are cited below. Dan Aykroyd last addressed Ghostbusters 3 back in Novemberseveral months ghosbusters this draft is dated.
The original Ghostbuster advised Access Hollywood that GB3 “doesn’t look like it’s going to happen for the same reason they aren’t going to make Men in Black 2.
Even Bill Murray said he would work a few days on it. I did finish a ghostbusrers.

Harold Ramis liked parts of it. There is definitely an interest from all of the original parties involved to make ghostubsters. However, the studio just does not want to hhellbent the risk. In my opinion, the successes of the other two give the impression that there is a good chance of profit for a ghostbustwrs sequel. So unfortunately, it looks like its just not going to happen based on the studio’s feelings, not from anyone else.
Harold Ramis told Entertainment Weekly back in February that the “dream plan is that Danny and I would produce it, I would direct it, and we would recruit some newer, younger, popular Ghostbusters to star. Cinescape Online reported in that the “film is rumored 33 follow Raymond Stantz Aykroyd and Egon Spengler Ramis as they cope with Peter Venkman’s Bill Murray departure with Dana Barrett Sigourney Weaverplus their attempt to stay employed while fighting a new otherworldly entity, possibly Hades, the Greek god of the underworld.
Having now read this March draft, I can confirm that the sequel does adhere to that general plot line at least in this draft.
IGN FilmForce Exclusive: The Stax Report: Script Review of Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent!
Without revealing too many spoilers, Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent suggests that hell portrayed as a stygian mirror image of The Big Apple dubbed “Manhellton” has grown overcrowded and congested.
As a result, hell is literally evicting people back into the world of the living in order to alleviate their congestion problem.
Obviously, this isn’t good for our world so the Ghostbusters must use their latest technology to literally go to hell and ask the devil why he’s doing this and to see what they can do to make him stop.
Naturally, the devil — portrayed here as a Donald Trump-like mogul named Siffler — has a secret agenda that leads to a grand conflict with our titular heroes. The Ghostbusters must once again save New York City from the evil forces of the afterlife.

There is indeed ghostbusyers younger crop of Ghostbusters or, as the script abbreviates it, GBs introduced that perform much of the otherworldly legwork here. This new crew includes: Franky, a body-pierced, tough New Jersey punker; Lovell, a dread-locked dude; Moira, a pretty but uptight gymnast and science grad; and Carla, a Latino beauty. There’s also Nat, a prepubescent genius whose powerful brain has made his head abnormally large. Despite his youth, Nat serves as a supervisor for the new GBs.
That’s all we ever get to ghotbusters about these characters we don’t even learn their last names! I’m not exactly asking for brilliantly delineated characterizations here but even the original team had their own distinct personalities, voices, and senses of humor. These young bucks are practically interchangeable. They all behave and sound alike, and get along relatively well.
There’s ghosgbusters real conflict between them nor is there a dominant personality as there was amongst the original GBs. These would be the script’s worst mistakes if it weren’t for the revelation that these young turks aren’t especially funny or charming, either. That’s what shocked and disappointed me the most about this draft of Ghostbusters 3: There’s also no sign of Sigourney Weaver’s character Dana nor is there any mention of her kid Hellbdnt remember him?
Zeddemore” have prominent supporting roles here. Louis Tully and Janine have cameos. The action is driven forward by the ghostbusterz GBs. Whenever the original GBs are in a scene, my interest — and the story itself — picked up.
I’ve never been a huge fan of TV series or films featuring “the next generation” of characters, with Star Trek being an arguable exception although I still prefer the classic Trek. I think Ghostbusters might be such a case hwllbent if these new GBs had hellbentt personality, if they were developed further, perhaps I’d have accepted the transition.
I just never cared about these new Ghostbusters, though. The plot line about hell being overcrowded and needing to evict people was relatively amusing but isn’t the whole “New Scri;t is Hell” sentiment rather tired now? Of course, I compartmentalized those issues given that this script predates the tragedies.
Rather than it being the wrong time for GB3 perhaps now might actually be the perfect time for it. I just can’t say that I liked the GB3 yarn that this draft offered.
As a huge fan of the original filmI’d much rather see a GB3 where the old gang must strap their backpacks on for one last mission even without Murray, though he’d be sorely missed rather than see pretenders to the throne get the bulk of screen time.
That’s just me, though. Obviously, the series’ creators see the sequel differently so I must respect their ideas.
I just wasn’t as entertained by this draft as I wanted to be and I really wanted to love this script. Given that there has been no development on this project for almost three years, however, my reservations about Ghostbusters 3 appear to be moot.
