Ernie Hudson has Ghostbusters fans talking after posting the below Tweet:

To add a bit more fuel to the fire, Director of both original Ghostbusters films Ivan Reitman told People Magazine the following:

“A lot of directors are throwing their hats in. We’re starting the meetings. We’re going to do it,”

Ivan Reitman talks Ghostbusters 3 in 3D, film title and reboot

Fred Topel of CraveOnline recently had the chance to sit down and talk with Ivan Reitman. It didn’t take long for Ghostbusters to come up and we’ve got the highlights below!

On 3D and film title:

“Certainly there’s been a lot of talk about doing Ghostbusters 3 in 3D as well, and I don’t think we’ll call it Ghostbusters 3 either,”

On if the film will be a reboot:

“It’s not a reboot,” “It just lives in a world where the first two movies did occur and those characters were there and at least some of them will be in this film, but it’s really a different story.”

With regards to a possible female Ghostbuster:

“I have no comment.”

Video: Louisiana Ghostbusters premiere new fan film

The Louisiana Ghostbusters just released their brand new fan film! Check out the backtory below, then scroll a bit further to watch!

This project began in the spring of 2012, was shot in late 2012, previewed in 2013 at Alabama Phoenix Festival, and with the blessing of the Twin Cities Ghostbusters is now ready for release. It is our introduction to a well-established fan film universe which ties in some of the major players dabbling in fan films and web series, and a labor of love from a few fans of Ghostbusters who wanted to have a little fun over a weekend or two.

We’re planning to pick up from this with a stand alone fan film series of our own which we’ll work on this summer. Enough talk. Ghostbusters fans, we are proud to present our fan film, “Louisiana Ghostbusters.” Special thanks to Ice Park Productions and Ghostbustin’ 911 for sharing Will and Kat with us for a day and allowing us to tie in our plans for a short film to your established world. Also thanks to Adam Schwartz and the crew of Alabama Ghostbusters: A Web Series for letting us use this project and your show to bridge these and other projects together into a cohesive world of fan fiction we lovingly refer to as the GBFCU (Ghostbusters Fan Cinematic Universe.)

Be sure to check out more of the Louisiana Ghostbusters on either their Facebook page or website.

New Ghostbusters project on Lego Cuusoo (needs your vote!)

Remember that awesome Lego Ghostbusters Firehouse we posted a few days ago? The project is now waiting for your vote over on Lego Cuusoo!

Here’s the press release from the creator, Sergio Herencias:

I present you, my Lego Ghostbusters HQ Custom MOC built.

Thanks to Brent, Lego brings the GB Ecto-1 Set. I thought to myself- why not built the appropriate HQ.

I decided to built a hybrid between GB1 & GB2 and add more extras and details, lights, sound and other stuff.

The Floors(levels) are removable. Therefore, you had many freedoms for the interior and everything is easily accessible. I have already started the design concepts of various accessories and furniture.

Lego Parts approx. 3000
Total production time: approx. 20H

height: 38cm – length: 33,6cm – width: 17,5cm

The below was sent in by reader Shane McKevlin:

The Charleston Riverdogs (NY Yankees Class A minor league affiliate) is co-owned by Bill Murray, who now resides here in Charleston, South Carolina. Well, Bill, the “Director of Fun” there attends many games. Well, this year, among the many crazy promotions and giveaways, they are doing a giveaway bobble head of the great Harold “Egon” Ramis on July 5, to honor him. If you can make the trip, you might want to, for fireworks, beaches, and the historic and haunted city which we are proud to have a Ghostbuster live in.

Here’s the link on more about a few of the promotions, which include the EGON bobble-head giveaway. And by the way, there is also a Bill Murray t-shirt giveaway night as well (April 12).

55 Central Park West (Dana’s building) gets remade with Lego

While there’s a chance we’ll one day see Lego release a Ghostbusters Firehouse playset, I’m willing to bet 55 Central Park West will probably never make the cut.

No real loss, right? Wrong! Check out this awesome custom Lego playset:
