Seth Rogen Thinks Ghostbusters 3 is a Terrible Idea
The only good news today worth mentioning is bad news. Well, it's not exactly bad news, but it's just a rough opinion on an upcoming project. Collider caught up with Seth Rogen recently while he was out promoting Zack and Miri and asked him about his thoughts on Ghostbusters 3. Its been rumored that Sony is wooing Judd Apatow for that revival and that might mean Rogen could be involved. But after these comments, I don't think that'll be the case, although it could all change once they finish a script. "It's hard to imagine that would be good, isn't it? … It sounds like a terrible idea when you first hear it."
I always love hearing Rogen's complete honesty every time he talks to press. He's not afraid to state his opinion, no matter how crazy it may be. With Ghostbusters 3, however, I think a lot of people will agree with him. "At first hearing it sounds like the worst idea ever. Maybe. I mean, that would have to be one mutherfucking good script." I know everyone agrees with him there! But what if Harold Ramis, who wrote the original films, were to be involved? "It all depends on how bad the script was. There is a point where it's so bad it’s really easy to say no. I have enough insulation around me now that I don't have to say anything."
I'm trying not to think much about Ghostbusters 3 until we get some additional solid information, whether it's a finished script or other updates. But I think Rogen's statements are going to be the accepted standard until Sony proves otherwise - and it will take a hell of a lot for that to happen. Is Rogen right?
