Update: ExtraOrdinary Casting contacted us and explained “We do not even know yet. We may get it. We do a lot of Films and TV Shows in Chicago. Just don’t know yet.”
A fresh article at Feature Film Auditions reports that Columbia Pictures is casting up the long-gestured Ghostbusters 3 for shoot this July, with plans on releasing by Christmas 2012. It smells fishy…
The site reports that shooting will commence in Chicago, IL, and lists an array of casting companies. We spent the morning calling every single one of them only to get voicemail after voicemail. We’re still working on confirmation to this highly unlikely story, especially now that Bil Murray was just announced as a lock to play President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a big-screen iteration of Hyde Park on the Hudson.
The casting reports the preliminary plot follows “A ragtag group of paranormal researchers reopen their notorious ghost removal service, and a new generation of Ghostbusters is brought on board to be green slimed and trained to contain the mischievous spirits.” We previously reported that the new Busters will be lead by Dana and Peter’s lovechild, Oscar.
