Fan Creates Ghostbusters 3 Using Footage From The 2009 Video Game
A great fan film that is also a somber reminder of what fans will never get.

A very industrious YouTuber by the name of GamestersStuff created Ghostbusters 3 using cut scenes and game footage from the 2009 video game. In his own words:

“What I have done here for your viewing pleasure is put together a compilation of cut scenes and gameplay from the game to collaborate the story line into a feature length movie that I simply call “Ghostbusters III” and I think it turned out pretty darn well. All video was recorded on a high end PC at max settings and enhanced with video editing at full blu-ray quality. This took me a LONG time to put this together folks so I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!” GamestersStuff

Director Paul Feig’s upcoming reboot/re-imagining of the Ghostbusters franchise has been a very contentious topic among fans of the original films. I personally have made my feelings on the subject very clear, so I’m not going to address subject any further. Up until the announcement of said film the closest fans had to a third installment in the series was the video game which was developed Terminal Reality and published by Atari in 2009.

Dan Aykroyd himself has gone on record as stating that the game is, for all intents and purposes, Ghostbusters 3. He wrote the script for the with the late Harold Ramis, and the duo even utilized several unused ideas from the original films as well as the infamously unmade sequel Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent. Developers were able to get the original cast members to return and voice their characters. More amazing was that they managed to convince Bill Murray to do the same. Ghostbusters: The Video Game is perhaps one of the best examples of a licensed video game done right.

If you’ve never played the game I wholeheartedly encourage you to do so. It’s and enjoyable title and a must for fans of Ghostbusters. If you’re interest doesn’t extend beyond film then I highly suggest watching the video. For those like myself not looking forward to the reboot, this is the next best thing.
