New from the Rumor Mill: Ghostbusters 3 Script Circulating, Brad Pitt In Talks for John Lennon Biopic

10 Jan

Latest on Ghostbusters 3

Ghostbusters 3 rumors were flying around the internet last year, and much like the Emperor’s new clothes, it seemed like a lot of work was being done for the project to remain in the same place: grounded. Now, it seems things have taken just one more step towards production, with a finished script that is making the rounds and Ivan Reitman claiming that it is “really good”. I don’t know how much we can trust that statement.

He did direct this, which indicates he might be going senile.

But, when talking with Coming Soon he added this:

“All the original characters have parts, as well as a whole bunch of new characters. It’s got a really good story, this one, maybe the best of the whole series. I hope we get to do it.”

Even with as optimistic as Reitman sounds, it is still up in the air as to whether or not this project will even get the green light. I am on the fence about this sequel, especially so long after the last one. If it does come out, I’ll see it for nostalgia’s sake, but I don’t expect another brilliant comedy like the original.

Brad Pitt Will Possibly be Cast in John Lennon Biopic

Brad Pitt is currently working with Yoko Ono on producing a biopic on the life of John Lennon, which he is also in talks to star in. Here is what an unnamed source had to say about Pitt playing Lennon:

Brad already has a writer working on the script. And Yoko has given the project her blessing so long as it’s true to John’s life. Brad wants to do all the singing himself and plans to take voice lessons. If he can’t pull it off they’ll use John’s own voice. Brad has also been immersing himself in videos and books so he can get Lennon’s mannerisms down pat.

The last reaction to Brad Pitt's singing abilities.

Brad Pitt is a great actor, and I admire his ambition, but I just can’t see him playing John Lennon. Not because I don’t think he can get his mannerisms down, but without some serious make up and weight loss, I will not be able to look at him and think, “Hey, it’s John Lennon!” I have been hoping for a biopic that will encompass his whole life, as opposed to just the early years, so hopefully they will be able to pull this off effectively.

    I’m excited about a third Ghostbusters, but only for nostalgia’s sake–like you said.

      Yeah, I guess we’ll see how it turns out. My fingers are crossed.
