There are lots of Ghostbusters fans and lots of hardcore gamers out there, so I suppose someone's bound to be excited about this, but I ain't one of 'em. Apparently, Variety is reporting today that Harold Ramis and Dan Akroyd will finally be getting back together to pen a third GB story, to be used as the plot for Ghostbusters: Hellbent, the first in what is planned to be a major videogame franchise from Vivendi Games.
Akroyd and Ramis, in addition to Bill Murray, as well as several supporting actors, will be lending their voice to the game, which takes place shortly after the events of the sadly disappointing Ghostbusters 2. Expect to see it by next fall.
Fans of the paranormal investigators and eliminators have been praying for a new sequel for 18 years now, so I guess there are many who are saying, "Better this than nothing." My interest in videogames cuts off at about 1987, so this really isn't doing much for me.
