Jonah Hill and Emma Stone Offered Roles in GHOSTBUSTERS 3?
Dan Aykroyd is doing everything he possibly can to get Ghostbusters 3 off the ground. With or without Bill Murray, he wants the movie to happen. We now have word from Schmoes Knows that Sony Pictures has offers out to Jonah Hill and Emma Stone to be in the film. If cast, they would play a characters named Jeremy and Anna.
There's no information on who exactly these characters are, but If this news is believed to be true, then it means that Sony Pictures is actually getting really close to finally moving forward with the long-gestated film project. Earlier this year Aykroyd talked a little bit about their plans for the film saying,
"We’re going to have to cast. We need four new ghostbusters. We need four new Columbia students.
"It’s based upon new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. Basically, there’s research being done that…I can say that the world or our dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence, length, height, width, and time, become threatened by some of the research that is being done. And Ghostbusters, new Ghostbusters have to come and some the problem."
I think it's safe to assume that Hill and Stone would end up being some of these new Ghostbusters. I'm a huge fan of this franchise, if it happens... awesome! All I hope is that they make a great film! If it doesn't happen, I won't complain. I can still always watch the original movie, which is still so freakin' hilarious.
