'Ghostbusters' Not Actually Shooting This Summer

A third Ghostbusters film shall, for a bit longer, remain but a dream for Dan Ayrkoyd to ramble about after a few Crystal Head Vodkas.

The perpetually-delayed but ever-looming film was, last we heard, scheduled for a summer shoot with a script from Etan Coen and zero Bill Murray. While the latter two points remain true, Sony has reportedly since admitted they got too excited and were stupidly, audaciously lunging at the sequel with the ill-conceived "get 'er!" approach. Upon further reflection, the studio has come to realize they do not actually have the resources with which to shoot a Ghostbusters movie this summer, so they're going to put off the final verdict on whether this is a terrible idea until March. This pushes a potential shooting start to next autumn at the earliest, but still only leaves a few weeks before Aykroyd next provides some sort of spurious update. See you in November with a "Ghostbusters To Feature Topless Annie Potts?" post!
