Ghostbusters 3 really needs to be made... Bill Murray needs to get his shit together. Hopefully it's a good script though...

Serious... From all the info and rumors, it seems like a "new blood" team of Seth Rogen, Aziz Ansari, and Matthew Gray Gubler could be feasible. The girl on the team would depend on how the character is written, but I'd love to see someone like Aubrey Plaza or Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Very stoked on the wrestling show. Not sure how I feel about a Knocked Up spin off considering Megan Fox is almost always unwatchable. Here's to hoping Segel makes up for it.

Yeah people like Aziz and Aubrey could work depending on the script, I just don't want the movie to turn too "Judd Apatow-ish" if that makes any sense. I think the original worked so well because it was a comedy but it had a lot of creepy elements blended into it. Hopefully this one doesn't stray too far from that sort of tone
