Who You Gonna Call? Tom Haverford!

It's been a while since there has been any word about "Ghostbusters 3".

Rumored for nearly 20 years, the project was said to be back on in 2009 with Sony fast-tracking the film for a Christmas 2012 release. All of the original main cast (Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver) had signed on to return along with director Ivan Reitman. Bull Murray was long thought to be the lone holdout keeping the production in limbo.

Brian DePalma To Direct His First Film In 4 Years

Brian DePalma has had the definition of a rollar coaster career. While he definetely has had some bigtime highs ("The Untouchables" and "Carrie"), he has also had some pretty low lows ("Bonfire Of The Vanities" and "Raising Cain"). Four years removed from his last disaster, 2007's "The Black Dahlia," DePalma is ready to give it another go. Only this time, he's working with a plot that makes his 1996 version of "Mission Impossible" look as easy to follow as the 1980s cartoon He-Man.
