Max Landis’ ‘Ghostbusters 3′ Treatment Now Online; Makes Original Films a Trilogy

by Germain Lussier

max landis ghostbusters pitch

Max Landis isn’t writing Ghostbusters 3. Ghostbusters 3 doesn’t even exist, really. Sony is, in fact, moving head with a rebooted Ghostbusters directed by Paul Feig and are trying to do a second film in that universe, starring Channing Tatum. And while the minds behind the original franchise (Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman) have their hands on these films, each will pretend 1984’s Ghostbusters and 1989’s Ghostbusters 2 never happened.

To some fans, not seeing a satisfying return of those characters trumps any good feelings about the franchise returning. Max Landis speaks to those people. The screenwriter and director took the fake news of him writing a sequel seriously, so he actually did. He never pitched it or showed it to anyone, but instead just used it as an exercise in creating a sequel, building mythology and more.

After all that, Landis has now put his Ghostbusters 3 treatment online for anyone to read. Find out more below.

The full Max Landis Ghostbusters pitch is at this link. It’s pretty long, so we won’t publish the whole thing here, just a quick excerpt to suck you in:

We start in the 1920s, where we witness cult leader Ivo Shandor proclaim the prophecy of the two comings of Gozer, one a failure, and the second thirty years later, to destroy the world. One of his followers speaks out, and is killed for his insubordination…becoming the spirit who is eventually known to us as Slimer.

Slam to 2016.

Ghostbusters was a national franchise, privately owned and government subsidized. But the lack of extradimensional invaders meant that there was ultimately a very limited amount of ghosts to bust, and the very optimistic national expansion slowly depleted the Buster’s funds (“Did the Atlanta chapter really need a helicopter?”). The Ghostbusters remain iconic, but despite the merchandise, cartoon show, etc, the company itself is bankrupt, on the verge of collapse.

Only two houses remain open; there hasn’t been a legitimate call in more than ten years. The original Busters are for the most part long gone; Venkman took the money and disappeared into seclusion, Winston Zeddemore quit the busters in 1991 and has since become a Richard Branson style billionaire, and Egon Spengler accidentally ascended to a higher plane of existence, leaving only the increasingly delusional Ray Stantz, who has run the company into the ground.

The New York Team is now comprised of Ted Becker, an earnest sweetheart living a dream born as he watched the Busters defeat Gozer as a little boy in 1985, Veronica Spengler, Egon’s Very Egon-Like daughter who feels in turns respectful and resentful of the hole left in her world, Brian Quaid, a fast talking breezily confident self-proclaimed psychic with a chip on his shoulder, and Irwin Oberstein, a gearhead MIT kick-out metalhead who sees the Ghostbusters as the ultimate way to explore his punk rock ideas about quantum physics.

Landis takes his idea all the way through the conclusion. He says the idea follows “my own beliefs about trilogies. It is a completion of the cycle and themes started in the first film, updated for modern film standards. As such, it features a heightening of the first film’s threat, as well as multiple action sequences, and deeper emotional through-lines for the characters.”

Also cool, Landis has been on Twitter answering questions and doing some fan casting. Here who he’d cast for his LA and NY new teams:

Becker: @sethrogen Spengler: @jennyslate Oberstein: @kumailn Quaid: @joelmchale Dante: @DustinWMilligan Reiser: Jon Hamm

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation Trailer: A New Hope Awakens

by Christopher Campbell

Update: now watch the full trailer for the movie above.

Between Star Wars: Rogue One and now Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, I worry for the future of X-Men solo ventures for the character Rogue. I also assume we’re eventually going to get some franchise with a subtitled sequel of “Rise of the Dark Rogue.” Maybe that can actually be the X-Men movie name. Anyway, the new Mission: Impossible movie now has an official full title and a teaser trailer, which you can watch above. And any worries that this series can’t keep the excitement going are squashed. Like the Fast and the Furious movies, the M:I movies are aging well, and while I don’t believe this installment can truly top Mission: Impossible: Ghost Protocol, I have a newfound hope that it could.

The first teaser begins with Alec Baldwin, which is a good way to start us off. Then there’s Tom Cruise in a Far and Away hairdo, which is more of the good stuff. Then action, action, action and Cruise hanging on to a plane as it takes off — and knowing him, even without the reports on the stunt from last fall, we’d know it’s really the actor hanging on to a plane as it takes off. Finally the Top Gun star is really getting into the glory of golden age aerial action movies. Howard Hughes would be proud and probably jealous. But is it too old fashioned? Can we expect him to, in one take, climb inside the plane, hop on a motorcycle or in a sports car and drive out of the plane, like is more the trend these days?

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation also brings back Simon Pegg, Jeremy Renner and Ving Rhames and adds Rebecca Ferguson (Hercules). The director this time around is Christopher McQuarrie, who previously directed Cruise in Jack Reacher and had a hand in the script for Edge of Tomorrow. The highly anticipated sequel arrives in US theaters on July 31, 2015.

Check out the poster showing off the money shot stunt below.

Muhammad Ali Explains His Greatness

by Miss Cellania

(YouTube link)

If you are only familiar with Muhammad Ali in his later years, suffering the effects of Parkinson’s, here’s a reminder of what a silver-tongued self-promoter he was in his prime. In this press conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in 1974, a few months prior to his world championship fight with George Foreman, Ali explains how good he is, in terms that can only be described as poetry.

I have wrestled with an alligator
I done tussled with a whale
I done handcuffed lightning
Throwed thunder in jail

Hilarious Acts Of Sign Vandalism

by Zeon Santos

Sign vandalism is so, so wrong…unless it leads to more hilarious pictorial content for the internet!

Those who vandalize with spray paint and such are often trying to make a name for themselves in the street art scene, but the anonymous people who vandalize signs are just trying to bring some funny to our otherwise boring lives.

These unsung heroes aren’t worried about fame or Banksy-esque fortune- they’ve spotted signs and plaques that are a few words or images short of perfection and simply filled in the blanks.

Sign vandals we salute you, so long as your work benefits the good humor of all mankind!

Misery Loves Comedy Trailer: An Overdose of Funny People

by Christopher Campbell

In the little-remembered movie PunchlineTom Hanks shows us the depressing life of struggling stand-up comedians. Now he’s appearing in a documentary that also associates the connection between the gig and misery, appropriately titled Misery Loves Comedy. In it, as seen in the trailer above, he compares getting laughs on stage to doing crack cocaine — or rock cocaine, he’s unsure.

What that implies is that there’s a hard crash following that amazing high (not that I know what happens after you do coke). The idea of the sad clown is an idea for a reason, and maybe this film doesn’t tell us much of what we don’t already know, but it promises to do so hilariously and from a whole ton of perspectives.

Misery Loves Comedy seems to pack the most comedic geniuses in one movie since The Aristocrats, which is fitting since they both played Sundance exactly a decade apart. Another one of their own, Kevin Pollak, directed this doc, and as you can also see in the trailer above, it received some great reviews at the festival back in January. FSR publisher Neil Miller is among those who had positive things to say, such as these words:

For a talking heads documentary, it’s quite populated. But the stories and the people are fascinating, especially for anyone who loves the craft of comedy. To see the likes of Lewis Black and Jimmy Fallon musing similarly about the failures of their careers — or as Black says, “you have to be willing to watch yourself die” — is illuminating. There’s no denying that any life lived “on the road,” be it music, comedy or traveling circus, is difficult. But in comedy, there’s something else. A deeper sense of misery that takes over when one walks off stage. That’s where misery and comedy meet for many of Pollak’s subjects. To be in control of an audience is the height of their happiness, to lose that is to plunge instantly back into the darkness.

In the end, Pollak’s film seems less about answering the question and more about the journey. It’s great to spend time with these comedians as they tell stories about the good times and the bad.

Tribeca Film picked up Misery Loves Comedy out of Sundance and will release the doc next month, first on iTunes on April 14th then in theaters on April 24th. Check out an alphabetical list of the more than 75 people who appear in the movie:

Some Highlights From Tommy Wiseau’s Reddit AMA

by Wookie Johnson
Corey

Dool!

To promote the release of The Neighbors, Tommy Wiseau broke his characteristic silence yesterday to field questions from his fans during a Reddit Ask Me Anything. And by “field questions,” I mean, respond to perceived taunts by spitting out irrelevant orders and demands while still finding time to squeeze in delusions of grandeur. So pretty much everything you’d expect from America’s most perplexing and unique filmmaker.

Here are some highlights. Unfortunately, he didn’t get around to answering where we could buy underwear with his name written on it.

On doing a follow-up to The Room: “Yes. We are doing sequel. And also 3-d, eventually.”

On Claudette and her breast cancer scare: “Yes, she survived.

“Oh yeah, we have many Claudettes in the country, with cancer – again, one of the things I like it when people ask why we don’t talk about it, yeah, is because someday we have a cure for it. Because it’s a very private thing, you know? Many Claudettes in America relate to cancer.”

On how is his sex life: “I enjoy it erryday!”

On where he was born: “I was born on Planet Earth.

“Moveonnextquestion.

“And I’m American, and proud of it.”

On Lisa: “First of all, you can compare Lisa to Eleezabeth Taylor, to when she did CLEOPATRA. The ladies, they don’t have to wear jeans, they can wear dresses to be very powerful.

“So Lisa’s character is very powerful. She represents American society.

“So that’s my answer. Move on, next one!”

On whether or not the flowershop dog is real: “Oh yea, ABSOLUTELY yeah! That was a real dog! My goodness, is real dog! It was a little sleepy!”

On other future projects: “I am working on new project, it’s called THE FORECLOSURE, we will be casting soon, we have already soon, and we have a vampire movie. And THE NEIGHBORS, we have 12 episodes of THE NEIGHBORS.”

On his favorite James Cameron film: “I’m – listening – THE ROOM, next question!”

On James Franco’s adaptation of The Disaster Artist: “Aw, I support him 100% perfect. He is very cool guy. But at this time, we have agreement, I cannot talk about it. He is very dedicate actor. We have a lot in common James Dean for example.

“The answer is yes. I am involved, 100%. I am part of it. Whatever, that.

“And agaaaain, I’m part of production, but I can’t talk about it. So that’s all I can say right now.”

On his spirit animal: “TIGER. Why? Because I love tigers. They are very vicious. And sometimes I am very vicious too.”

On his favorite line he’s written, and whether it’s You’re tearing me apart, Lisa: “I love this quote. And also, ‘WHAT A DAY!’ I like that one. It’s from Charlie, in THE NEIGHBORS. And also, I see across America, people quoting me. ‘OH, WHAT A DAY!'”

Check out the entire Reddit AMA here, and if you’re not already hearing Wiseau’s voice in your head, you can finally watch The Neighbors, on Hulu.

John Oliver Slams The NCAA And March Madness In This 20-Minute Rant

by Penn Collins

Tis the season for March Madness and lots and lots of college basketball. Last Week Tonight with John Oliver took notice and ran a pretty epic twenty-minute rant on the state of the NCAA and student athletes. What’s most remarkable is that every point Oliver makes in his monologue is fairly well-grounded and true.

You might not have the inclination to get after 20 minutes of preaching, but it’s worthwhile to check in on for just a few minutes. If you had any tolerance for the NCAA, be prepared to say goodbye to it.

It seems the tides are quickly turning against the NCAA, so we’ll see if any of these studies serve as a death blow in the near future.

‘Sherlock’ To Revisit Its Roots With A Victorian Christmas Special

by Penn Collins

Benedict Cumberbatch is a pretty busy guy these days, what with fighting off women and getting awards for playing British codebreakers and/or dragons. However, he still makes time for Sherlock, the series that shot him to stardom. The show is largely dormant due to the stars’ fame, but they’re getting the band back together for a Christmas special.

And they’re going full-on Dickens in the special, going back to the 1880’s ’round Christmastime.

So we’ll get to see Sherlock exist in his original setting, which isn’t exactly why we signed up for this BBC remake, but it’s plenty fun for an episode. We got Cumberbatch in the double-billed hat and cloak, and presumably some other fun stuff from the era as well.

We don’t have a release date yet, but since it’s filming now, we can bet it’s going to be out this year…I dunno, maybe around Christmastime?
