Despite Bill Murray's non-involvement and the passing of Harold Ramis, Sony Pictures is reportedly planning to rework the script that they have been developing for a third "Ghostbusters" film.
According to THR, director Ivan Reitman is reportedly set to meet with the heads of the studio to figure out how they will move forward.
Previously Ramis, Murray, Aykroyd and Hudson were to cameo in the film to 'pass the baton' to a trio of newcomers. That is no longer the case so Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupinitsky's script will now likely undergo some minor re-writes.
So could Aykroyd and Hudson appear? Hudson spoke with TMZ yesterday and said:
"Well there can't be another Ghostbusters without Harold. It will be a Ghost- something, but it won't be... That was always my fear - that something would happen before we all got together."
"Game of Thrones" and "Conan the Barbarian" actor Jason Momoa has revealed that a key reason he didn't get the role of Drax the Destroyer in "Guardians of the Galaxy" was that he back out after auditioning.
Talking about the decision with Zap2It, Momoa revealed he didn't want to be pigeonholed as a brute:
"I think it's perfectly cast. Dave [Bautista] is perfect for that role, for Drax. It didn't really fit in my time because I've done so many things where I don't say much and I'm colored up and I have my shirt off again. I made a conscious choice to turn down some movies that were action-based to direct 'Road to Paloma' so people could see that side.
I want my children to see their father happy. It's not that it's not a good role, it just wasn't the right thing. I was on Stargate: Atlantis for four years playing a similar character called Ronan, who was an alien who didn't say much and grunted. I've been there and done that, whether people have seen it or not. You want to stretch."
Despite the backing out, Momoa says he's still open to other comic book roles:
"There's definitely some, absolutely. I was a huge comic book fan, and I still am. I'm not going to tell you the ones I collect, because then you'd know."
Lacking some of the major tentpoles of other studios, Sony Pictures co-chairman Amy Pascal confirms the company is doubling down on its "Spider-Man" franchise. The aim? An annual Spidey-related release.
"We are expanding the ‘Spider-Man' universe into ‘The Sinister Six' and ‘Venom,' so that we have ‘Spider-Man' movies every year" says Pascal.
Alex Kurtzman is slated to direct and co-write "Venom" while Drew Goddard will write and potentially direct "The Sinister Six". While both films are in development, neither has set a date yet.
Pascal has also confirmed that Marc Webb is returning to direct "The Amazing Spider-Man 3" which is due for release in June 2016.
