After years of teasing fans with promises of a new Ghostbusters movie, there are some new rumors as to the possible production schedule, location and cast of Ghostbusters 3. Before you get too excited, we posted a similar story about four years ago, so keep that in mind. This time around, an NBC affiliate in Cleveland is announcing that the film has penciled in a spring 2014 production date. Another rumor reports that the studio has offered roles to Jonah Hill (This Is the End) and Emma Stone (The Amazing Spider-Man). While pencil can be erased and offers can be turned down, we’re bringing you this news in the hopes it comes true. Hit the jump for more.
According to a film industry executive, Ghostbusters III is considering Cleveland as a location to shoot the third installment of Ghostbusters … The movie is scheduled to be shot in 2014
Poor grammar and phantom sources aside, at least we have a timeline for Cleveland-based paparazzi to start looking for Ghostbusters filming in their fair city. As for who might show up on set, we go to Schmoes Know, who report that Hill and Stone have been offered the roles of Jeremy and Anna, but no other details are available. Here’s the latest plot information we have on the picture, courtesy of Dan Aykroyd:
“It’s based on new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. … 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.”
