"And I basically put a list together where I had to strike a number of movies that I've talked about so many times that people just don't want to hear me talk about you've got mail or Apollo 13 or working girl. Again, like four ways and if you know, you guys know. And especially like the romantic comedy genre is to me a specific type of feel good movie. But I realized that, oh yeah, that's ultimately what I carry with me in terms of loving movie experience. That's true. I remember certain movies that really rocked me emotionally or challenged me. But in our nostalgia, rewatchables context. I just want be cozy with my favorite movies. I do too. That doesn't necessarily mean it's all saccharine gloopy stuff. I see a couple of movies on your list that have some complicated feelings, some complicated storytelling that is not always pure happiness. But I think I kind of safety and a security and you know, I think the concept of being seen is a pathetic generational joke at this point, but it also has power. It has meaning to it. So why don't we just do our list? Okay. What's your number 5? Speaking of Ivan reitman. That's right. Dave. Yes. D, which we did have rewatchables on, right? It was me and Bill. We did them. This is one of the ones I had on VHS, and, you know, I just think of Kevin Kline at the weird auto factory. Oh yeah, Sean just showed he has it on. Is that Blu-ray? Shots? It's blue, right. Sean has an interesting collection. Thank God. When the apocalypse comes Sean's physical library has preserved Dave, I'm happy. I'll come over and come over. Yes. But, you know, this is the, you know, when Kevin Kline goes to auto factor and he's like, I once had a fish. This big with the giant arms also going this big, which I just thought was the funniest joke when I was 8 years old. But this is if a possibly not possibly. Certainly an optimistic view of the American government. And the American political system, but this is about one guy being good can make a difference and can bring the good in everybody else while also being quite funny..

"Bill Murray for 25 years has declined to participate in a third ghostbusters film. He has railed against it repeatedly. He has turned down every possible iteration, including films potentially scripted by really, really gifted people. Why he came back for this movie, I have no idea. I guess because Ivan reitman produced it, and he knew Jason reitman when he was growing up because Jason Raymond was on the set of some of these movies. But aykroyd and Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray and the spectral vision of Egon Spengler AKA the late Harold remis appearing in this movie while affecting to me personally, I also was like, this is pathetic, like we didn't have to do this this way. It really was a bummer, wasn't it? Yeah. Because they showed up and our theater was silent. By the way, I should say I was the only person laughing at munchers, so it was really not an enthused theater. Well, I was laughing at your laughing. Yeah. You also with Tracy letts showed up. You looked at me and then like you gestured and you were just like, they're married. They're married and I was like, yeah, Sean, I know. Believe it or not. I enjoyed that as a fan of theater. Sure, yeah. It's like I'm up on that, John. Yeah, but it wasn't even exciting. And there is also and I'm afraid that people who only fast forwarded in a minute have now reached the spoilers and again, so guys, hit another minute. I'm really sorry. But Jason reitman filmed a little thing to go in front of the movie being like, please don't spoil the end of the movie. So by the way, I knew that all the ghostbusters were showing up. I've said great, cool. And then they showed up and it was just very flat and they don't seem excited to be there. And it's the same. There's a real lack of connection between the little kids and the ghostbusters 'cause they don't know who the ghostbusters are, which then why are you doing it? If even the people in the movie themselves don't care, you're just missing, again, it's missing that enthusiasm and zaniness that was the mood of the original. Yeah, and the original ghostbusters are 70 years old, so one kid is gonna be like the 70 year old is here, yes. Come on, it's just a bizarre choice. I mean, I know why they did it. I understand why they did it. What a curious film. Let's talk about Jason reitman for a little while. Jason reiman has been a guest on this podcast. He has made movies that I really like. He has also made movies that I find utterly confounding and in some ways a little bit offensive, and that might seem strange because they seem I think very sweet and maybe a little bit milk toast and a little bit traditional. But he occupies this very strange space in Hollywood. And this decision to make this movie, I think has been criticized as being quite cynical. Obviously, he has gone out of his way to talk about his personal connection to the franchise because of.

"There was this whole really confusion in the air because what developed was two different ghostbusters movies were being made. One that was a complete rebrand, the one they made before, sure, and one that was supposed to be a more serious follow-up to the original movies, the one they're coming out with now. Yeah. And once the other one got ahead or got started making first, you had to separate yourself a little bit. They just kept delaying it and separating and waiting for the stink to wear off of it, I think. No, I honestly believe that is the thing. They had to wait and put some separation in between the two films. Because it was always going to be Ivan reitman's son. Jason Jason reitman. That was doing it. Always. And it was going to have the original cast and everything. Yeah. So yeah, this has been a long time coming, so that's pretty exciting. It's great. Check it out. Yes, check out that trailer. We've got two more trailers that I've seen. Go for it. One of them is book of boba. Oh, the book of boba. So the Disney+ show that's coming out. I believe in December or is it end of November? It is December. And I thought it was December. So it's coming out relatively soon within a month. And it's all about boba Fett's journey. After what you have seen in The Mandalorian, if you've watched The Mandalorian, and he's basically taking over Jabba the hut layer. And everything that he's done. So it looks pretty cool. I like the action, boba Fett is taking obviously the main stage here. And I'm in for it. I don't care what Disney+ does for a TV show with Star Wars. I am going to watch it immediately. Absolutely. Everything, especially if it looks like The Mandalorian, which this one absolutely does. Actually, I don't think it looks exactly like the ignorant. It seems a little less not exactly fantastical and a little more like original Star Wars. To me, I agree. No, I agree. But I thought Mandalorian felt that way to me too. It did, but it was very it had a chicness to it. Sheen to it. Okay. You know? Yeah. That I think was very fantastic or like what's the one I'm looking like fantasy like, yeah. And this feels a little more like Star Wars, the original Star Wars series. Yeah. It just has that aesthetic to it. So I think and I think that makes sense if they go that direction they got one, you know, they got two different things kind of going off. Yeah, it separates them. It will separate their paths finally. So no, it looks amazing. The trailer looks great. I can't wait for I'm obviously like a gigantic fan of.

"Wow and it's interesting. It's funny because as you get older and everything just kind of becomes a blur need. You're looking for these little mile markers in your life. I wanted we do that. Thing with ivan raimo can't cannot remember that that was it. I remember that was one of the times we were due to come up to the to the house and i don't know if that we we've gotten into it a little bit at that point. I mean we were on a rewrite of the of the script. How many scripts do you have around that you would like to do. The you have a cache of scripts that you know like to get to take so long to get anything just right in fact draft. It was one of those scripts that i didn't have to sort of start from scratch on wonderful. It was i i wrote it. Thanks ted make up a. We'll never know. Joe's dash dash year. She is awesome. They you know i was. I read it four o'clock in the morning and it was just a a spec script that had just come in it was their first grip and the dot rothman and write g. Joseph rocha joseph. And i just love it and i i knew when i finished reading it i wanted to direct it and i in fact i got to meet them just a few days after. I'd read it because it happened to be in l. a. They're both live in new york. And i said look. I'm going to make your movie. I didn't know how he's gonna make it. I knew it was gonna be really hard to put together his. Why again for what. We were talking about earlier. This is exactly the kind of movie that the students are not interested in making You know they were not necessarily incorrect. You know it didn't do particularly well at the box office theatrically well is it. Because i mean. I've i've made a movie since and done some stuff like that. And you get this sorted tween or label where you go well. It's not a sports film per se and it's not really a drama per se and got some comedy and it and they go. Twitter is they can wrap their mind around ghostbusters or they can wrap their mind around hunger games but the movies that are little more nuanced and have many elements in them. They're not sure what to do with those. At least that's my experience. I think that's partially correct and Really the major studios are making something called temple movies. Whatever that means that means. They're so big they hold up the rest of the year and now they're not even interested in the rest of the year. They're only interested in the poll right and so they're really looking for giant films that play a very well all over the world and are you. There's all different ways of raising money for films. Now i mean we might not need the big studios anymore no and we do but file unique distribution. So it's not enough just to make the film you really want. People see it now. The great news about draft is now people are discovering it. You know You know and the dvd online and all those things that you were plugging a moment ago and it's you know it's been number one for about three weeks in a row so suddenly. Oh hey this is a really good movie because adults are now starting to see the film and and women who were sorta scared off because of the football subject matter realized that they love it that it's very easy to follow even for. You don't know much about football. And jennifer garner scrape in it by the way and i think i don't know where she falls bright belowa right above jennifer aniston in the hot but not threatening to other women way above or me. Personally i i. Maybe know i like her. What i'm saying is is there hot chicks. That women won't sign off on and then there hot chicks. That women are cool with women really do like her. Let's yes she's a hot chick but she's okay. She's a wonderful person to work with great. Cast yeah good good. That's interesting. i think you're right about the twitter thing are scared of the of the films. That aren't hundred percent comedy drama or whatever their nuanced. But it's interesting to note. That ghostbusters was a really groundbreaking film at the time. Because it was a sci fi movie a big budget movie. A special effects was illegitimate comedy. All the way and it was a total meter was the first super the first but an early super successful cleaner and wasn't by the way that expensive we made the movie for thirty million dollars. It's more money than than it is today. But still now isn't it. Was he quivalent of doing a sixty or seventy five million dollar movie today which is expensive. But it's not like a two hundred and fifty dollar movie hold on. I don't wanna beg to differ but an eighty four. I think you have a chart. A gallon. Going to the seth rogan thing all over again. Call the manage in his sixties. Had a gallon of gas was like a buck in eighty. Four i think it's more than double but it's still not expensive by today's standards or wasn't considered even then huge budget huge budget film. The most wonderful thing about ghostbusters was how we got to make it and this is really different than the way things work. Today i walked into the studio heads office. There were two people in the room other than myself. And so they said what he got. And i i sorta pitched a four line version of ghostbusters and And i just. There was no script by the way i had just met with dan. Ackroyd and sort of worked out how we were gonna develop the script. And i i. I gave him that pitch. The whole thing took about five minutes. They said how much and i had no idea because there was no script would cost. But i just finished making stripes for them which was very successful. Eight cost ten million dollars. So i figured i'm want to plight by three. That's how i got. I just took a number. And i said thirty million and they said okay i said what do you mean okay. Yeah let's make it. And you got to deliver by june tenth or ninth of nineteen eighty-four and this was i think it was april or may of eighty three and we had no script now we had no effects company to do the special effects and there were no digital effects of course but we still needed a visual effects company in fact started it except rial which was the only one fancy wanted existences. I was already booked to do spielberg's temple of doom name on a week before us and so here we were. We had the right script. Get it cast. Although we had bill it was a one time. Bill had already said yes. Uh-huh in the five movies that i've made with them. You mean before the script. That's where i'm not only before the anytime like meatballs. He showed up the day before. And i knew i had him two days before heard. Those stories is he eccentric or are very careful very careful or what. What is this thing. Well i just celebrated bill murray day with him in toronto. And we're basically the toronto film festival you know pulled out. All the stops they showed. They showed stripes and groundhog. Day and ghostbusters. And then we did a q. and a. it's actually the first q. And a. it ever done with bill was going to be like and it turns out wonderfully is he. I've i've never met him..

There was kind of a shift in in this sort of attitude about comedy. It was really comedy with You know for the baby boom. We just turned out to be a big boom and a lot of people right and so I was a young person with all these extraordinarily talented young actors who were just young comedians. Who are exploiting at that time and You know now. Thirty forty years later is the movie. Businesses changed where very few smaller movies are getting made particularly in hollywood so The generation that are now in their teens and in their twenties. I'm talking about comedians. Don't get to lead a movie. I mean when harold harold ramos and bill murray and john belushi the they're all making their first films in those movies that became so successful. And you wouldn't the hollywood when wouldn't let a guy make his first film and do it like dat. Now we're joking about how difficult was to you. Know to get you jimmy to star. Although i think he would have made a terrific movie and i thought your voices were unique then and would have been very appropriate. The problem is now. it's very hard to break in. You can get on television is. That's what's happening. But those kind of lovely classical comedies. That sort of make you happy after you leave the theater and you remember them and they get re released thirty years later like ghostbusters. Just has this week. Don't really exist anymore. And yeah they're successful comedies. And guys like seth rogan and joanna. Hiller doing Very well but john getting recognized for his real dramatic work seth. Seth is already in his forties. And so so. Who's that next guy. Who's in his twenties. that old. yeah is i think so. I don't think he's at all he seems old. I think he's kind of five or forty five he you. It's weird when you see like the forty year old virgin and you go. That guy's in his mid thirties right and it's like no. He was twenty when he when he did hat which is weird. He's thirty two. He just seems to apologize seth. I'm really really sorry. No but like. I said i don't know the forty virgins wet ten years old now but it's very early. And he seems like an older dude in in that movie and he's literally at any budget the studios themselves are very making these films. The kind of films that launched all these careers And and for you. Obviously it's not a financial issue I mean you wanna work by you. Don't you don't need to work. You're working because that's what you love to direct. I mean i love making drafty. i think It was an unusual choice of a movie for me. It's not although this funny things. It's not a comedy and it's a sports event draft but is very good and You really realize first off you kind of realize. Oh yeah constant. Israeli good and us really good and he's an he sent me a long rambling email the other day. He's humanizer pen pals aura. He's a little bit nuts but not in a bad way. Well we all are. Aren't we now know he's all another does email say oh god he just he. He sent me some long ass emails. I mean he must have sent you along share of them. But he's really one of the favourite actors. I've worked with and i've worked with wonderful people and you know he's he's just really talented. He's he really cares. And oh god yes and you know he works at it. And he's a passionate man he he really is and it doesn't matter where he's aimed. It's just that's where his passion is. It doesn't matter what the subjects not all about films. I did a i did a benefit. We did a benefit sort of wounded warriors or something. if the reagan. His band was playing. I was seeing turn into a little. And so as the buckle is that it didn't go well well. There was an issue. There was an issue in which was it was an incident. I had agreed to see this for the veterans and he had agreed to play at the end of the night. You know just for free. To for the best for the veterans or the wounded warriors. Are you know let's face it. It's a benefa-. I didn't sweat. I'm emceeing and you know she. Evening sunday night. I'll have a glass of wine in my hand. And i'm sitting at the table off the side.

Your uncle really jerk avenue fire. Well it's a mix of stories as my buddy's dad basically we come back from a dance and a buddy at touch some girls genitals after the dance and it was first time many of us had ever touched anybody's of women's genitals young and and my buddy's dad came out and literally i mean this is a little. He smelled my buddy's hand for like a long time and then masturbated into the fire once we went inside. So here's the about me beaten off into the fire. What is the thing. This is a lose lose proposition because first off. There's always a chance for pup- sange because you especially these logs poppers area of low water and there's a lumber another thing is is you're completely illuminated and it's probably the side of you that you'd rather have to be the dark side to side so you should always put your back to the fire when masturbating or i got. Maybe not even use fire at all but he masturbate a little crazy. yeah start off you know. Wean yourself off that campfires with one of those little cans one of those in the bathroom. Thank you know what i mean. Yeah maybe maybe a roadside flair. Eventually you'll be down to just holding a over your head like you're winger concept birthday candle eventually and you know you've heard a birthday. It's not just the one can. Yeah but still. It's just too risk it flares up at of kids parts. Yeah but yeah man this. This man is most frustrating thing in the world when they get those novelty candles that come back breath okay. Let me camp craft with this. The last time somebody somebody get him a water. What kind of fire was fire left. It was a dance and it was like our first dance and the girl had folks that come and pick her up. Just tweet girl you know she just kids. You know out there touching each other's genitals and and it wasn't. This isn't covington louisiana lee harvey oswald middle school. It's mike august from louisiana and he constantly explained to me. You have no idea how fucked up. That places like uber open. I grew up in north. Hollywood which i just soon as dump doesn't seem kind of dumpy. It is aesthetically. There's no it's always funny. It's my sort of argument with ghosts. Like everyone is from louisiana or haiti. Or whatever says oh. There's there's that one human being from valley village north hollywood mcgraw with. Oh there's definitely an energy and my crappy stucco apartment. That was off of lankershim sherman way never saw. How is it that we don't have joe's whatever. Whatever met louisiana grow in a no house because i got aluminum sliding windows and stucco put on with a bad sponge popcorn ceiling popcorn acoustic ceiling. How come no ghost there. They don't want to stick around on it. There's a persian landlords. It would definitely stick around and hall at someplace so we he just explains that first off. Every every governor of louisiana just goes to prison halfway into their terminal. Yeah i mean. They used to have signed summer when edwin edwards and david duke running against each other. They had signs that said. Don't vote for the racist. Vote for the crook and those were one of them's campaign signs. I used to lift weights with david. Duke say this dude. I swear to god. We shared a back fence. We shared back fence for probably eight years. You ever get invited any a- used to take me to the gym slime of this whole shared fans what is that. that's not. How does that work when you shared a background with david. Do it just means one family paid for the fence. And then just both people used both sides like their own side so david duke is your neighbor with neighbor. Yeah oh this is getting good and we used to go to the gym together man. And i'll tell you this nicest guy in the world. Let me say this. Can i say this. Serial killers and rapists are always the nicest guys share racist rapist. You know whoever they are. You better be nice. 'cause if you're this and you have this horrible attitude you'll you'll you you can't you can't you can't pull out. I've always a surprise when they again man on the street interview. The neighbor of this era killer like. Did you have any idea what's going on. He was a muslim guy. You come any indication that he was up dotting runaways and dismembering them in his basement no drove a previously like fears old. Thought maybe that was a normal thing from the joe just to be accurate. If i was to say a ducted gay runaway prostitute in dismembered with saws all in his basement. What you say and it was discussing stan. Your neighbor less than fifty percent chance of him engaging in that behavior. And that's my only choice or less. Yeah more okay. Yeah loud up definitely say less than twenty five percent abso- going to go less alright. So he pretty much kept to himself. Yeah there's less than twenty five percent chance. He did the runaway right game murderer because when you advertise a horrible human being you.

I'm saying donate your time at the local red cross shelter or spend a little more time tossing the ball around your kid or do push something anything other than this. Do you think. It's just clearly a hipster move. No i think it's it's it it. It's it's been going on for a while. It's the guy who wants to show up by the way that when the guy hands the bottle where the beer sweating through in the papers peeling off. Because it's scotch taped on the fucking thing and there's a skull and crossbones that the guy did with a sharpie and his name extending. I'm not wanting but you have to take a hit off because he's handing it to you. It's kind of a look what i did. Yeah sure it's like please. Pin this on your magnetized right now that we're having my beer. Let's watch me have sex. Yeah i inwardly focused. This there are other people if you would like to go to a party and impress lose twenty pounds before you go to the party. Get a job that pays quite a bit more than than the last time we saw. You be working on a documentary. That's very interesting. Not making your own shitty beer. That's not as good as sierra nevada. That's in my right hand. All right steve. What's going on thirty seven. Nothing's going on what's going on with you guys talking to you about it all right so my question for you adam and i wanted to know since you can do comedy and you're great at acting and if you can do comedy while we haven't established i was great at acting. Well i've established it and all your fans have god love you all right okay. So have you ever thought about doing or been approached for doing roles in drama. Maybe not like leading character. But like you know no one's ever no one's ever approach me to do anything exactly approach. I've had homeless approach asks for money. Yeah that's that's what i get approach to do. People want money. I had people approach me and ask me to move out of the way. Yes but never no. I don't no one's ever asked me to write a movie act and their movie. I mean i ever but not really dramatic. I- that'd be fine with it. I'd probably like the right it. i'd like it. I think. I think if you can do comedy you can do the drama. There's no doubt in my mind that You know. Vince vaughn could do great dramatic work because how how much harder it is to do what he's doing you know because the because comedy drama. We've all lived. I mean everybody has anyone has ever put dog down and travel to the vat and done that thing. Where could i have a few minutes alone with rusty and then you just sat. There has done drama. Yeah i mean tears pouring out you know. I mean you get an award for what if that. We're filming that and that was. That dog was perfectly healthy. You'd get some nice notices on that. So it's like we've all done that. We've all done the scared shitless. Whatever when you just almost got into a car accident. Somebody's swerved in front like oh shit and we've all done these super angry got no big blowout with the wife or girlfriend vice versa or whatever it is so it's like in life you have kind of done that spectrum but comedy you may not have done no i was. I acted in a drama. Last year i was in a tv show called mob city That was a cop show with john. Birth all from walking dead and I thought this is going to be easy. Because i you know. It's i don't have to do anything. But it's actually. It's not apples and oranges. it's apples and submarines it's compl- because with comedy. I know what the end result that i'm driving at is and i know how to ring a laugh out of this. There's a laugh to be rung and withdraw my. It's literally it's like you it. It's in a way it's like surfing or skiing where you have to really let go of everything you're trying to accomplish which is not an easy thing for ryan to do yourself and let something happen on. Its own right. And and especially with these real dramatic actors like the the first table read. We did you know john. Brentall has jumped talking like. And i'm like well if the mob is going to be in the oilfield we're going to have to go and later at night. Problem is radio. I'm like i don't know what i'm doing. I should have been. And i was like a big drag queen. Does it feel. Does it feel unsatisfying. There's no specific pay off like you said you can ring a laugh out of it. You know what the reaction's going to be. You don't know what the reaction's going to be dramatically do becau- but you get it very differently. It's like when you're writing something and you don't know where you're going and then then it solves itself because you're writing and it. It's it's like oh we had. We had something there that will you really do. Get to the point where it becomes real. And and and that's. It's really not interesting to talk about. But it's actually funded..

Historian ideas proved too ambitious and inaccessible for mainstream audiences. One concept involve the ghostbusters. Traveling through a tunnel for three days through this pneumatic tube. That was like two thousand miles long and a lot of other zany ideas. That were probably too expensive to fill after reading. Accurate script. reitman called a series of meetings. He wanted to get accurate script into shape much like he did for the first film so ramos and aykroyd agreed to account for the passage of time between the two movies because they were a little bit delayed in kidding. This started before. A variety of reasons ramos felt that in the intervening years. Ghostbusters would be like a worldwide chain. So they could still set the action in scotland if they wanted to you but in their revision as they started working on it. They decided to make peter and dana barrett married with the baby. And for comedy's sake that baby would eventually get possessed by a ghost and then start walking and talking on its own kind of like an adult in a baby's body. Eventually though they determined that centering the story. So much on peter was upsetting. The balance of the overall story of the ghostbusters marginalized the other. Three ghostbuster characters so they decided they were going to rewrite it. So that dina in the intervening years had left peter because of his lack of commitment and she would marry somebody else. Presumably the stiff violinist who uses nasal spray in the first ghostbusters but now at the beginning of the film she would be divorced with an infant boy. And that would mean a second chance for peter now around this time david. Puttnam became the chairman and ceo for columbia pictures. Although he was now the head of a major studio he seemed to not like the hollywood studio system at all. He determined that the way things were being run was not conducive to making good movies. He determined that talent agencies in particular were squeezing studios escalating budgets left and right now that he was in charge he refused to entertain expensive star studded packages where the studio would have little creative control and in so doing he started talking a little too much. Perhaps a little too. Broadly in an off the record. British american chamber of commerce luncheon speech putnam asserted that he was no longer interested in catering to these takers. Who do not give anything back to the industry. Unfortunately he mentioned bill murray specifically as a taker although he would deny saying later putting did not know though that murray's lawyer was in attendance at that luncheon and so word leaked to murray's talent agent. Mike ovitz a big power player in hollywood at the time he also represented reitman and ramos and then it appeared in page six in the new york post. And that's when murray vowed he was never gonna make any movies for the studio as long as putnam was in charge and the other actors back them up. Murray inaccurate pulled out of his girl friday. That was going to be a columbia release which putnam decided to put that project into turnaround. Although it did later get repackaged for a release in nineteen eighty eight as switching channels nevertheless coca cola which owned columbia. They put pressure directly on putnam to make ghostbusters to happen. No matter what so. He considered proceeding with ghostbusters to because he had already burnt the bridge felt with murray and company he was gonna make a whole new ghostbusters crew. A mostly black cast lead by bill cosby. Bill cosby happened to be coca-cola's spokesman at the time and he was newly signed to a film contract undercut them but bill cosby had ideas of his own. He was more interested in developing his own story. Idea for something. That would become leonard part. Six under pressure in april nineteen eighty-seven putnam told the press that ghostbusters to would indeed be in production by november of that year. And this came as a surprise to reitman. And all of the other cast who reiterated that. We're not going to work for putnam. September of nineteen eighty-seven with very few successes to tout in his tenure. There putnam was pushed out of his position and his three year contract a couple of years early and that made way for a new production head. Don steel and dawn steele got the job because she was going to make ghostbusters to her top priority. With putting out of the way murray soon met with aykroyd and ramos and reitman and ovitz and he came there to hear their pitch for the story that they had thus far that luncheon went for four hours because it started as a big gripe session for all of the resentments that had felt since the last time they had met mostly aimed at putnam but after they clear the air which took some time murray listened and he liked their new ideas much better than the ones that he felt he had heard from aykroyd alone very at that time had just made scrooge and while he was not really keen on java jumping right back into acting he did feel good while he was making scrooge that it was something that had a moral. He was picked by putnam's accusations that he only cared about himself so murray wanted ghostbusters to to mean something. More than just a return for fat paychecks. He wanted the ghostbusters to reflect their own reality that they were gonna join forces here to do something to help the greater good and to help people be better ramos and accurate than built their next revision with this in mind with the ghostbusters. Being broken up and then having get back together to save the world one more time with the moral that humans should treat each other with kindness or else bad things. We're going to happen. Ramos came up with the notion that negative energy is something that could build up over time. So new york. The home of rudeness negatively it must be sitting on reservoirs of residual negatively underground and that made it a place where evil spirits would dominate and that would lead to a climax with the statue of liberty being possessed by one evil spirit and to defeat this evil spirit. New yorkers would have to be nicer in unison at least for a while ramos joke that the statue of liberty at the end would end up laying on wall street as some sort of satirical commentary of the times now making each other laugh through this four hour. Lunch meeting murray. He's started to miss the good times with these guys. Ghostbusters says i mentioned the most funny to ever had making a film he could really use the laughs in his life so we started softening his stance on returning but if he was going to return the studio would have to make it worth not only his while. But everybody's he wanted ten million dollars to return and that his co stars get the same amount but the struggling columbia pictures. They didn't wanna spend fifty million dollars just to get the talent back on board on top of the costly effects work. So negotiations began between the studio and the main talent and their agents and an agreement was eventually reached. The actors were working for scale in exchange for large percentages of the gross fifteen percent would go to murray ten percent to reitman eight percent to aykroyd in percent to ramos if they can get the film in theaters on the fourth of july weekend in nineteen eighty nine. That meant the shooting schedule was going to be rushed yet again. In fact it would be two weeks shorter than the first ghostbusters. But that two weeks eventually became a whole month shorter than the original ghostbusters. Because the release date moved up to june twenty third. And that's when they realized that tim burton's batman was being released that week and so they moved it up yet again to try to get the jump on batman which was heavily hyped at the time to june sixteenth nineteen eighty nine. Raymond had to juggle post production on twins while he was handling pre-production ghostbusters to so this was a really hectic and concentrated. Shoot there was also one. Snag involve sigourney. Weaver insisted on making as much as her co stars and she was not given some of the same benefits here with their deal and she also wanted her money upfront because part of her deal for the first ghostbusters was a percentage deal and she never got paid columbia said that they never really actually turned prophet which she said that she was going to sue them and force them to do an audit. If they're gonna go with that. Excuse columbia decided you know. Maybe they should look into recasting dana. Maybe a less expensive actress could play that role but they decided they were going to retool. The character altogether different single mother love interest for peter was written named lane walker for continuity sake. They did hope that they could get sigourney. Weaver to do a cameo part with dana barrett. But weaver declined. She either wanted something to do or she didn't want to do anything at all. Meanwhile several actresses they came in they read lines with murray for the lean walker role but murray grew very disenchanted with all of this and he urged columbia. Pay weaver what she wanted because she had the right chemistry to work with him. Now with all of these new directions. They started having story issues so several screenwriters were brought in big names like lane. May in lowell ganz. Bob blue mandel came in. They provided advice to try to fix issues especially relating to the family oriented aspects of their script. Also they were having trouble with the main conflicts of their films in the early drafts. Negative feelings manifested into the rise of insects. All over the place right suggested that a better way to go would be to have slime comeback specifically mood slime that became a concept murray acquiesced on the slide concept on condition that he not be slide again. He didn't wanna go through that ever again. However slime was still a little too abstract to be the main villain so they concocted a powerful to be kicking up someone named vigo who could channel this negative energy and become more powerful vigo would use the statue of liberty as one of his minions and then come after the ghostbusters or attacked new york. However they determined that because lady liberty was kind of symbol really of new york's ideals and indeed the country as a whole. They felt that the statue of liberty should really stay positive force so they came up with this idea of having good slime to be able to counteract the negative slime and the ghostbusters would take control of the statue of liberty to do their bidding for the climax. Meanwhile sigourney weaver. She had just been an oscar nominee for aliens. She grew very hot after her turns in working girl and gorillas in the mist in one thousand nine hundred eight indeed she would become a double oscar nominee in one thousand. Nine hundred nine with murray. He happened to be on a four year hiatus from films except for scrooge most recently which did well but not phenomenally. Well aykroyd had middling efforts since the last ghostbusters and ramos had two failed comedies. In armed and dangerous and club paradise sigourney. Weaver was the only actor among them. That had surefire box office. Bankability for ghostbusters. So negotiations heated up on how to find a way to get dina barrett back into the fill. The offered weaver again. A profit percentage but given their past experience she instead opted for a flat fee. One million dollars to return for ghostbusters to now in the completed plot. We began five years after the events of ghostbusters. The heroes are zeros again bankrupt because they got sued by the city for the destructive aftermath of clearing. Out the city of spooks. They claim that they made all of that up. A federal restraining order was issued prohibiting them from continuing their ghost busting business. Peter vakman now is the host of this cheesy local cable. Talk show called a world of the psychic ray stance. He's now an occult bookstore owner and he does some side work with winston's edmore cost playing basically themselves as ghostbusters for children's birthday parties. Egon spangler he gets his job back at columbia university and he happens to be investigating. How human emotions. Psycho magnetic energy and dana barrett. She's now a single mother after leaving bank for his inability to commit. She had a baby oscar now. Eight months old with another man that we never see. Louis talisa also back. He applies his knack for accounting to become a tax lawyer and they reunite after being approached by dana who reports a strange occurrence involving her baby's carriage traveling on. Its own down the street very upsetting to her. So they discover while they're doing their friend favor rivers of mood. Slime that are running beneath the city converging on the manhattan museum of art. Which happens to be where dana works as an art restorer and one of the art pieces there includes a life size portrait of this medieval sorcerer or lord the vigo the carpathian vigo's spirit happens to live within this portrait and to enter into the realm of the living again vigo wants a baby to be his vessel to come back into the mortal realm anti continue his reign of terror. So he makes a deal with his boss. Dr janos to secure dina's baby oscar in exchange for having a date with her something of sirte like that now in the original script. Peter mcnicoll the pohang role. He was kind of a generic ghostbusters. Foil just another d. bag of a story named jason lock. Now mcnicoll playing this forgettable.
