Thank the heavens! The boys over at First Showing report that Seth Rogen expressed a small measure of disgust at the thought of a third Ghostbusters movie.
Collider caught up with Seth Rogen recently while he was out promoting Zack and Miri and asked him about his thoughts on Ghostbusters 3. Its been rumored that Sony is wooing Judd Apatow for that revival and that might mean Rogen could be involved. But after these comments, I don’t think that’ll be the case, although it could all change once they finish a script. “It’s hard to imagine that would be good, isn’t it? … It sounds like a terrible idea when you first hear it.”
You’re goddamn right it does. I love both Ghostbusters films (as well as the animated series) and a third seemed like a great idea back in 1990. But now, it would only reek of a desperate attempt to cash in on our nostalgia. And while I think all of the people rumored to be involved are talented and yada yada, some shit should just be left the fuck alone, no?
Whatevs. If Rogen’s not too geeked about the idea, then perhaps Sony would just let this bad idea die a quiet death and leave the Ghostbusters legacy untarnished.
