Who Ya Gonna Call?.. Ghostbusters 3 – Game News!

16 11 2007

Sony Pictures announced this week that they’re finally working on a second sequel to the classic 1984 ghost-busting comedy Ghostbusters. But, instead of a live-action film, it’ll be a video game. Also, it will be awesome. Presumably their decision not to make it a movie was motivated by the fact that Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, Ernie Hudson, and Harold Ramis are now all way too old to carry a proton pack up a flight of stairs, but still, I think it’s a pretty great one.

Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis will all be voicing their characters for the game and today it was confirmed that Ernie Hudson is also back. Woot Winston! Along with him will even be supporting characters, with Annie Potts, William Atherton, and Brian Doyle Murray. And since Sigourney Weaver hasn’t signed on yet, the action will probably focus more on actual ghost killing than boring stuff like romance and baby saving (like in 1989’s disappointing Ghostbusters 2).

The game will also be co op. Which is freakin greatness. Oh and in case you are wondering if any other characters from the Ghostbusters world will be returning, well take a look at the image for the game below.

Best of all, the game’s expected to drop next autumn, just around the time when Hollywood starts releasing all the terrible movies that were rushed into production before next year’s anticipated actors and directors strike, so we’ll be able to play it uninterrupted well into 2009. Man, I can’t wait!
