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.

Minor league baseball team co-owned by Bill Murray set to giveaway Harold Ramis bobble heads

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).

Special thanks to Shane for sending this in!

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:

Ivan Reitman talks Ghostbusters 3: He won’t direct + hoping to start filming in the fall

I know, it’s ANOTHER Ghostbusters 3 topic. These can be vomit inducing, but while we’ve kept them to a minimum as of late, today’s news is actually pretty ground breaking and has even been confirmed by a Sony exec.

Here’s some of the highlights of director Ivan Reitman’s recent interview with Deadline.com:

The first [script] was done by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, and me, Harold [Ramis] and Dan [Aykroyd] helped them on it. It was a really good script, but then it became clear that Bill really didn’t want to do another Ghostbusters and that it was literally impossible to find him to speak to for the year or two we tried to get it going. When Bill finally…well, he never actually said no, but he never said yes, so there was no way to make that film. We decided to start over again, and I started working with Etan Cohen, with Dan lending a helping hand. Harold got sick about three years ago, and we kept hoping he would get better. I kept pushing forward on the Etan Cohen and we now have a draft that is very good, that the studio is very excited about.

Nothing too earth shattering, right? Keep going…

“When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let’s find a really good director and make it with him. So that’s what we’ve agreed will happen. I didn’t want all kinds of speculation about what happened with me, that is the real story.”

Sony’s Pascal confirmed the above:

“We totally understood.” “He was thinking he might feel that way when Harold died, and then came back to us and confirmed it, that while he was excited to return and make the movie as producer, but did not feel he wanted to direct the movie. We are delighted to work with Ivan on this movie in that capacity. We love him, and he’s going to continue to play an important role. We’re very anxious to get the movie started.”

Reitman continued with talk of the new Ghostbusters cast and possible start date…

“I’m not going to say how many Ghostbusters there will be in the new cast, but we are determined to retain the spirit of the original film, and I am pleased that all of this seems to have happened organically,”  “I’m hoping we can get started by the fall, set in New York, but given the logistics and the stuff that happens, the beginning of 2015 seems more likely.”
