Ghostbusters 3

Chronicle screenwriter Max Landis was reported to be writing a new draft for Ghostbusters 3, a rumor which he’s gone on record denying. According to darkhirozons.com, Nikki Finke told sources Landis was given three weeks to polish the screenplay. However, Landis released this tweet stating: “Hey guys, it pains me to say this, but you know I pride myself on being [a] straight person. Zero truth to the Ghostbusters report.”

He once admitted to playing with ideas for the opening. It would include the Cult of Gozer leader, Ivo Shandor (mentioned in the original and video game villain). The scriber sent out another tweet, describing what it would be like.

“My Ghostbusters 3 began in the 1920s with Ivo Shandor murdering a gluttonous associate to protect his cult after he has a moral objection. Shandor tells the overweight man that nothing can stop the coming of Gozer; first, the gate will open in 1984, then again twenty years later. The fat man, who now has all the details of Shandor’s plans, threatens to go to the police, and Shandor poisons him. It’s scary, but… As Shandor escapes, we see that we’re in the Sedgewick Hotel, and that the guy we just saw die…Is Slimer. Cue theme. Show title.”

Sounds pretty dope. Hopefully it’s something he strongly considers keeping, but with a few more tweaks of course.
