Let Me Guess...They Die and Somebody Busts Them?

Columbia pictures announced that they are reuniting Dan Ackroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson in a GHOSTBUSTERS sequel.

"Ghostbusters" was Columbia's highest grossing film ever, until it was beaten by "Men in Black" and then "Spider-Man." An attempt to make a third installment of the franchise was stymied in the dealmaking stage. Sources said that so much gross was pledged to the participants that it was next to impossible for the studio to make any money on a third installment.

No deals will be made with the original cast until the script is ready, but the gross percentage will certainly be an issue. Sony has a standing policy not to allow more than 25% of first dollar gross out the door."

For me, the best part of the original Ghostbusters was Ray Parker Jr's theme song which unfortunately is no more. The replacement is a poor substitute.

The story was great, except for the ending.
