Who Ya Gonna Call?

Apparently even though a third film has been canned, there is still life in the Ghostbusters franchise.
Vivendi Games is teaming with Sony Pictures to turn Ghostbusters into a video game franchise, reports Variety.

The first title in what the publisher hopes will be a series of "Ghostbusters" games is set for release in fall '08 from Vivendi's Sierra label.

All four members of the movie team -- Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis -- will be giving voice and likeness rights for the game. Some supporting castmembers have signed up as well, including William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray and Annie Potts.

In addition, film writers Aykroyd and Ramis will pen a story for the game that takes place in the early '90s, after Ghostbusters II, during a new ghoul invasion of New York City.
If this is true, and they make it somehow someway into a multiplayer co-op you can expect LSWTF members Dews, SayHey and myself at the front of the line, waiting to be slimed.

I'd love to see a third movie, especially given the direction that Murray's career has taken in the last decade. He's more hilarious than ever. Can you imagine Venkman infused with a bit of Steve Zissou and some of the character from Rushmore? Brilliant.

The rumored plot of the 3rd looked so bad but yet interesting the way things could have worked out to make it good. All 4 signed up for a 3rd with Harold Ramis writing the script. That alone would make 100 million dollars.

You know, I would def get the game if your prediction is true. I love the franchise, hell, even loved the cartoon!
