    Your fearless leader Vespidae and I celebrate our first annual 29th birthday on Friday, 6/6/14. In honor of that, we've decided that we're celebrating by watching Ghostbusters in the Chicken Movie Club thread on Saturday, June 7th. It's available to stream on Netflix, as is the sequel, so get your queues ready. Everyone start your movies at 9pm EDT / 6pm PDT, or just join us for a boozy chat if you don't want to watch the movie. Attendance is mandatory. :mrgreen:

    I am notoriously bad for making it to these, but I cannot attend. Going to see Jay Leno at Motor City Casino that night.

    I'm moving on 6/7. I could possibly have the movie going on in the background, but I don't think I'll have time to chat :sad:

    Well, maybe Ghostbusters can at least make your move happier. Good luck!

    I finally watched the first Ghostbusters just a few weeks ago! I'll be out of town for a wedding that weekend though so I won't be able to join unfortunately.

    Let's play who is your dream cast for Ghostbusters III?

    I know it's filming early next year, but I have no idea what's happening with it. Do you know if it's going to use as many of the original characters as possible or if it's going to be a new cast?

    It's in my calendar! So unless some stupid real life thing that I can't get out of pops up, I'll be there!

    I haven't read any articles about the possible plot. I hope they keep the original characters.

    I was asking D about it, and he said no Bill Murray and (obviously) no Harold Ramis. He says the last he heard, which was a while ago, it was going to start off with the old guard, but by the end of the movie, they'd be passing the torch to a new group. I wonder how much of that has changed since Ramis's passing. I would not be surprised if it had more to do with the next generation, but with cameo appearances from the originals.

    You know Akroyd will just have to stop by. But I'm okay with that, because I love him in spite of himself.

    Oh, I'm sure he'll write himself in somewhere.

    Supposedly, Aykroyd is the only one interested in doing it anyway, and Bill Murray is distancing himself from it. I'm not sure how much of that is true, but that seems to be the rumor.

    I think it would be hard to get a cast as good as the original, but I'm thinking about who I, personally, would like to see in it. BRB.
  24. SassyLlama

    OK, so I'm going with different actors for the original characters:

    Peter Venkman - Aziz Ansari
    Raymond Stantz - Seth Rogan
    Egon Spengler - Benedict Cumberbatch
    Winston Zeddmore - Kevin Hart
    Dana Barrett - Katie Holmes
    Janine Melnitz - Aubrey Plaza
    Louis Tully - Jack McBrayer
