QUESTION FOR EVERYONE

Proton packs and ghost traps are essential for catching a ghost. Which nonessential or lesser essential piece of tech would you like to see return in GB3? I would love a return of the giga meter.
Winston Zeddemore.

Oh. You said "tech". In that case the yellow flight suit hose. Or what I've always assumed is a hose used for getting rid of a pilots urine in flight. Why the Ghostbusters need it, I'll never know. As a kid I assumed it was incase they got so scared they peed themselves. And as an adult...I think pretty much the same thing.

Paul Rudd portrays the 2nd Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies. Mark Ruffalo portrays Bruce Banner/Hulk. Ruffalo is an outspoken voice against frakking. Now that that is explained, what loosely passed as a joke is no longer a joke. ;)
Thx for trying. I still don't get it as I don't know what frakking is. Had to Google it, doesn't help that it's also a name in Dutch. But it had something to do with replacing oil with water.
And I still don't get why it's controversial and what it had to do with any of this. So confused!
Frakking

It's also how people from south Boston pronounce "freaking". It's also how people from south Boston also pronounce "antidisestablishmentarianism". Go figure.

Not for nothing, I really want to see Dan's performance paired with with a Booker T and the MGs tune at some point in the film. The organ is appropriate, the wild west theme is on the mark, and the band is a great homage to his role in the Blues Brothers.

Hang 'Em high or Run Tank Run. Either would be great to see the soul man go to battle with.

Has "GHOSTBUSTERS: THE FRAKKENING" been mentioned yet? I'm a little late.

You guys are too much. I can't imagine why on Earth anyone would thick they'd bring fracking into a GB movie. What did Ray say the building was made of? Magnesium, tungsten, and selenium. Odds are that Shandor mined one of those here.
Well, it doesn't exactly help that what I suspect is meant to be a mine elevator looks a bit more like an oil derrick on the Sheriff's seal:

And it wouldn't be a huge stretch tha a company digging for materials could open up an energy concern if they came across a supply during their excavations.

And mining for materials isn't usually known to cause earthquakes, but frakking has.

It was mostly fun spitballing. :)

Hearing that Rudd is a seismologist has me a bit worried that the guy over on the 2020 spoilers fb page was right :/
An old Sumerian gateway is uncovered by a mining company. The three workers who uncover it are possessed with energy which leaks out of a crack in the gateway. This energy inverts a persons frequency.
Scientists who work in vibrational frequencies of earth come to the town to investigate the iverted energy surge that came from the town. Meanwhile the possessed workers begin possessing other people turning other people frequencies to that of their own.
At the same time a woman moves back to the town she grew up in only this time she has two kids. She moves into a house that belonged to her father. She rummages around to find all sorts of electrical equipment including blast guns (GB PACKS) and paper clippings of a group of scientists that saved the world. As she is looking her young daughter is watching from the distance. The daughter sneaks in after her mother and plays with the equipment. She is comfortable with the technology showing great understanding. She turns on a device called FRED at the same time that the gateways energy surge from the mine hits the house. She hears a message telling her that he is ok and that she must tell mom. She doesn't hear as the energy blast scares her off, as she runs she knock the device to the floor breaking it.
The girl shows her brother what she found and her brother begins telling her the story of how their grandfather was into weird stuff and that their mother didn't want them to get involved as it was dangerous.
People of the town begin to act strangely. The family not knowing any different just assume the town is quirky.
The kids are playing around in the basement when they get attacked by a possessed person. The older brother fights the attacker off. Meanwhile at a bus/trainstation a lot more of the possessed people are attacking cummuters the number of possessed people is growing quickly.
The kids mother comes home early after the police shut down a part of the town were she works. At home she realises that the kids have found out about their grandfathers stuff. She isn't happy about it.
The two kids go to a friends house to try and fix the FRED. When they do they get attacked again, this is when they realise what the device does. It picks up frequencies. They use the device to detect who is possessed and who isn't. When they get home the house is inverted and the mother is missing. The two kids decide to go to the police but on the way they get attacked again. They get saved by some friends from school and an adult. They all use the Fred device and the kids explain who they are and the adult realises that they are related to the famous scientists who saved the world. They go back to the barn and come up with a plan to make the equipment reverse the frequencies that have possessed the people.
Thre three minors that originally got possessed are attacking people at the same time the kids go to the adults house to test the equipment on his wife who is bound to a chair. They deliberate but eventually fire the weapon at her and it normalises her frequency and she is fine again. A the same time the energy that was possessing her races back to the original 3 people who moan knowing that something is wrong. One of them mutters. Its them.
The possessions now go into aggressive mode. More and more people. The kids decide to get another pack but it has to be mobile. They try to attatch it to their mothers car but its to heavy. They use an older more sturdy car that used to belong to their grandfather. They make some adjustments with the help of the adult and hit the streets. But when they do they realise that the sky is red and the grass is dying and the whole area is inverted and becoming past of another dimension.
A fight with the three possessed minors and the kids in the car causes a lot of damage. The police see the kids and the adult and arrest them believeing them to be the problem of whats going on.
The secret service come to investigate what has been happening as the scientist that reported their findings are missing. A friend of the kids mother gets thrown in the cell with them, the person tells them that their mother is walking to the mine. This is when the police station is attacked. Everyone gets possessed except the sherriff who releases them because he believes that they are telling the truth.
Energies and entities are now roaming all over the town, all heading towards the mine. The kids get back the car and equipment and head towards the mine to get their mother. When they get there the gateway is now totally uncovered as the possessed people heve been digging it out by hand as is controlled by something.
They relaise that two worlds are merging together and this is allowing the gateway to open up and release whatever is on the otherside into this dimension.
A large sloar emerges from the gateway. They use all six weapons to neutralise the massive beats but it does nothing. They decide to set each pack at a different frequency to try and tear the beast apart.
They all shoot the beast but the packs all malfunction and throw back the blast to each pack sending each of the wearers to the dimension that their frequency was set at.
They all then reappear back to the mine but somehow two weeks have passed but for them it was a few seconds.
They get the keys to the town and get approval from the secret service for a grant. They discuss what happened and they ralise that they all witnessed another dimension when separating the Sloar.

Oh no. We are back on believing rumors and that the movie must suck because someone who clearly cannot write made a synopsis.

Even IF the synopsis would be true, and that's a very big if, I'd put more fate in Jason's (visual) storytelling.

I have to agree with Alphagaia, I think this one is some horrid fan fiction that makes absolutely no sense. The one that was posted on Reddit was written better, but I think that one is bogus too. :) :) :)

I think we already determined that one was fake based on what the actual footage of them with the suicide door chair/pack and whatnot entailed, and how that didn't line up with the "frequency" idea. Also, Carrie Coon's age came up, I believe (I was born in 1985 and I'm turning 34 this year, and Coon's character would have to be born after at least Ghostbusters II, and then have these kids) this one doesn't seem to have a place for the original Ghostbusters in it.

Not sure if this has been posted but...Ernie Hudson says he's currently filming the new GB film.

Check out the video. https://www.instagram.com/p/B1sR3C7ARl6 ... nlfe6dcwo2

Sorry for the repost if this has been mentioned.

Love that they have the moustache back!
Yes, it originated from August 27 on a website called Cameo where Ernie (I think was paid a small fee) to record a birthday greeting for someone, a "Mike" I believe.

Yeah, I took issue with the guy on the Facebook spoiler page asserting that the seismologist news verified his story. The word seismic showed up nowhere in his story, and his use of "vibration" had more to do with new age lingo than it did from the earth quaking.

I call BS. The guy is just trying to do a hot reading.

What's the guys name? If you are able to ask him question, can you ask him if he still has access to this "script". Is there a draft date? Does he remember a single line of dialogue? Character names? The fact that there are no character names is what really makes his story stink.

But I gotta say, when I saw "seismic" mentioned, and remembered the "vibration" thing I got a bit nervous. I mean..If this guy is legit(he isn't. But *if*) seismology is the only science that could monitor earth vibrations, right? Also. Keep in mind, if this guy is legit, plenty of plot synopses don't read well. I remember people freaking out about Avengers Endgame spoilers that turned out real and when you read them in a bullet point synopsis, it sounded stupid. But when you see the movie, hear the dialogue, the visuals, the music, how it's presented and put together...it's 70% of it.

So don't worry. 95% chance the guy is full of it. We will know soon enough, hopefully.

As I said before, his dates don't line up well.

He claims to have been working on the script on July 2018. Jason gave the first and only draft to Sony in December.
FUN FACT: his father gave Sony the last draft of Alive Again five years before, in December too. We all know how that turned out.

That sounds like something someone from the studio might say...

But seriously, the guy is retrofitting bits of news to fit the narrative he created.

If he has said "Paul Rudd plays the seismologist" before we learned as much or, hell, even revealed a character name that we could later verify, he'd have more credibility.

Someone on reddit had an interesting theory:

Rust City?" I think it may be literal and not just figurative. I think we will see a (possibly underground) city created by the Cult of Gozer and rusted after many years of neglect. There's been rumors of an Indiana Jones vibe to this movie. I expect more Gozer lore and a lot of history into the Cult of Gozer's early 20th century activities.

It's an interesting idea. I immediately thought of Batman: Arkham City with the abandoned city below Gotham. Something like that, but with a Gozerian vibe, would be kind of neat I think. Maybe the mining accident (hence the memorial that was leaked) was the result of the miners attempting to close or seal off the city because it was deemed too dangerous.

I'm curious how this town links to 55 Central Park West. It seems that this town mined for materials to construct the building, but that begs the question - why build a spiritual antenna in NYC when you could build one in Summerville Oklahoma?

I don't know that anyone has used that exact phrase that is tied to the filming of the movie, but Jason Reitman said at fan fest that Ghostbusters 2020 is very much an "archaeological" film.

Or perhaps it was deemed a failure and they shifted focus to New York City. An underground city sounds very Lovecraft. I think even one at least, The Mound maybe, dealt with an underground city/gateway in Oklahoma.
