Jonah Hill and Emma Stone set for Ghostbusters 3?

November 7th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Another month, another Ghostbusters III rumour… and this one is good. And bad. In equal measure.

According the guys at Schmoesknow, they have a very reliable source who has confirmed that Bill Murray will not be in the movie and that Jonah Hill and Emma Stone (pictured below) will both be in the third – and eagerly anticipated – movie in the franchise.

Oh god, seriously? Hill… I’ve had nightmares about him, Ben Still and Will Ferrel being anywhere near this. But I like Stone as an actress and can see her as a feisty female phantom hunter. Anyway, where were we? Oh yes…

According the source, the actor and actress have been offered the roles of Jeremy and Anna.

Now who exactly these characters are remains a mystery; could they be kids of the original GBs? (Where’s Oscar?) Or are they new characters along the lines of Kylie and the gang in Extreme Ghostbusters or, em, Kylie and the gang in IDW’s New Ghostbusters?

Who knows; all we do know is that this is still in the land of rumour and nothing is set in stone but if it is true and casting is starting, we can expect a big announcement from Sony for the original movie’s 30th anniversary next summer.

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….
