Jonah Hill & Emma Stone to Shoot 'Ghostbusters 3' in Spring of 2014?
Here's your daily dose of a big grain of salt as two new rumors regarding Ghostbusters 3 have popped up on two different days. The first rumor seemed so sketchy that we decided to throw it to the side, but when the second details surfaced, we thought there might be something here. First of all, Schmoes Know, has been all about casting rumors lately from Batman vs. Superman, but they also correctly reported the return of Tim Burton and Michael Keaton to Beetlejuice 2. Now they're saying that offers are out to Jonah Hill and Emma Stone for characters named Jeremy and Anna, but no details on their roles were known at the time.
Now we've known for a long time that a new team of Ghostbusters will be taking over for the old guard played by Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson. In fact, Aykroyd recently explained the plot of the film that Etan Cohen was hired to write last July:
"It's based on new research that's being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. 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."
But the casting seemed bogus, especially since those two names have been rumored for years on and off and have mostly just been part of fan wishlists for a new cast of Ghostbusters. But Ohio news affiliate WKYC (via ComingSoon) reports that Sony has penciled in a spring 2014 start date to begin production Ghostbusters 3 in Cleveland, likely taking advantage of a big film tax break that was also available to Captain America: The Winter Soldier recently. The studio has said there is nothing to report at this time, but that could just be a way of shutting the story down. Is Ghosbusters 3 shooting next year? You already know our stance as far as the excitement behind the gestating sequel is concerned. Do you even care?
