Oh God, here’s Paul Feig’s vision for Ghostbusters III (or whatever it’ll be called)

December 16th, 2014 by Marc Comments


With all the leaked emails from Sony floating around, there’s lots of news and rumours bouncing around – from Spider-man to Ghostbusters and everything in between.

The latest leak seems to be from Ghsotbusters III director Paul Feig. In an email to Sony Chief Amy Pascal, Feig pitches his vision for what the movie will be.

Abandon hope all ye who enter here.

In the movie “humans aren’t afraid of no ghosts, he says, because they haven’t met them yet. He says his film will be “scarier and more hi-tech” than the original Ghostbusters: The villain will be a convicted murderer, ideally played by Peter Dinklage, who turns into a ghost after his execution is hit by “a supercharged electrical storm.” This gives him the power to raise an army of other ghosts, which could be made up of famous villains throughout history. It’s like Night at the Museum! These ghosts will in turn have to be busted by “four very different women” who have to “figure out in funny, scary and action-packed ways how to save New York City and the world.”


He goes on to explain that in this universe, “the Ghostbusters will work for the U.S. government, but, because ghosts don’t officially exist, the government will have to continually disavow their relationship. [They will have] a bureaucratic nemesis who’s “always saying terrible things about them in press conferences and then apologizing to them behind the scenes.” 

Well, this sounds truly awful, Ghostbusters meets Night at the Museum. Enuff said.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
