Emma Stone, Jonah Hill, Larry King: Exciting facts about possible Ghostbusters 3 movie


Those eagerly awaiting the return of the Ghosbusters movie franchise may be in luck; according to Schmoes Know, WKYC, and ScreenCrush, Ghostbusters 3 may in fact be close to becoming a reality.
 
New Ghostbusters?
 
Emma Stone, who recently appeared in “The Amazing Spider-Man” as Peter Parker’s love interest, Gwen Stacy, has been offered the lead role of Anna. Similarly, Jonah Hill of “22 Jump Street” and “Superbad” fame has been approached to play another lead character named Jeremy.
 
While it has yet to be revealed who Anna and Jeremy are, fans are already guessing they could be children of the original Ghostbusters. It is more probable that they are university students unrelated to the original team, based on Aykroyd’s previous statement regarding new characters: “We need four new Ghostbusters. We need four new Columbia students.”
 
Whatever the case, the youngsters will most likely pick up where the classic paranormal exterminators left off.
 
Although it has not been stated whether Stone and Hill have accepted the roles, the fact that offers are already being made to these actors could mean Sony Pictures must be extremely close to greenlighting the production of Ghostbusters 3.
 
Haunting grounds
 
According to a Sony Pictures Entertainment executive, Cleveland, Ohio, is being considered as the location in which the filming of Ghostbusters 3 will take place.
 
Cleveland has provided a filming location for several recent films, such as Katie Holmes’ “Miss Meadows,” Katherine Heigl’s “Jenny’s Wedding,” and everyone’s favorite dystopian YA novel-turned blockbuster movie, “The Hunger Games.”
 
Higgs boson and Larry King
 
In an interview on “Larry King Now,” Dan Aykroyd—co-writer of the first two films and who also starred as the Ghostbuster team’s perennially childlike Raymond “Ray” Stantz—revealed some fresh plot details about the planned sequel.
 
“It’s based on new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University,” Aykroyd told King. “Basically, there’s research being done that I can say that the world or the dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence, length, height, width and time, become threatened by some of the research that’s being done. Ghostbusters—new Ghostbusters—have to come and solve the problem.”
 
The “new research” he referred to involves particle theories, specifically the Higgs boson particle.
 
Aykroyd even confirmed that Larry King will once again return to play himself.

“Of course, we’re going to be doing you in your new format as you comment on what’s happening in Manhattan up there at Morningside Heights,” Aykroyd told King. “It’s going to be quite a spectacular scene once the stuff starts to break.”
                                                         
Bill Murray, where are you?
 
Sadly for fans, it remains doubtful that Bill Murray will return as everyone’s favorite cocky, skirt-chasing, one-linerific pseudo-scientist, Peter Venkman. Aykroyd is optimistic, however, that his friend will change his mind.

“There will be a hole for him,” Aykroyd said. “If Billy wants to walk in the door and be in the movie, we will find a place.”
 
Whatever this “hole” is, there are rumors floating about that Bill Murray might make a cameo as a ghost.
 
While Bill Murray is set to star in Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” Sony has yet to reveal in an official statement when filming of the new Ghosbusters movie will begin. — VC, GMA News
