Yesterday, a story on Bloody-Disgusting.com revealed new insider-supplied details about the long-gestating third Ghostbusters movie, specifically that Dana Barrett's son Oscar is actually Peter Venkman's illegitimate son, as well, and therefore the rightful leader of a new generation of Ghostbusters (which is a retcon we can get behind). Of course, we're taking all of this with a grain of salt, since, as you can see when you look at BD's long history of Ghostbusters 3 articles, these updates have been coming for years, and they have yet to pan out. Bill Murray has been connected and disconnected from the project, Venkman has been made a ghost, Rick Moranis is supposed to come out of retirement... mass hysteria! To save us all a little time and trouble, we thought we'd just present the next dozen or so breaking news items about the production before they happen, so you know exactly when to start getting excited. (Don't hold your breath.)
Cue the distinctive strains of the Twilight Zone theme! According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Warner Bros. and Leonardo DiCaprio's production company Appian Way are in the early stages of seeking material for a feature take on one or more episodes from the classic TV series." They mean the classic classic series with the smooth intros from writer and Zone mastermind Rod Serling, and not the more recent attempts to revive the show for TV. Nor are they "seeking to remake an episodic movie," referring to the 1983 film that comprised four separate stories and made me a just little bit scared of ambulance drivers. And Dan Aykroyd. And Creedence Clearwater Revival.
