Poor Ghostbusters 3.  Not only is it the sequel to a classic film (and another, crappy sequel) that absolutely no fan is asking for—it’s also a film that seems permanently trapped within its own personal rung of development hell.  As we’ve noted in the past, “Bill Murray was in, then he was out,  then he was back in, then he was back out, then it got a new writing team,...

The Campaign
    The Campaign unites Will Ferrell with Zach Galifianakis, and the way comedy works these days, it's a surprise they haven't work together sooner.

Ghostbusters 3—in the annals of Hollywood’s ‘development hell,’ this proposed sequel continues to simultaneously serve as one of the most frustrating, and yet, entertaining entries.  It’s frustrating because it’s likely impossible to top the stellar original (Ghostbusters 2, anyone?), and yet the infamous stories of infighting between Bill Murray...
