I have some time on my hands and was thinking of writing a remake screenplay for the 1984 cult classic Ghostbusters. I think with a good story and the huge advancment of CGI technology that the ghosts could be made to look incrediable. How hard would it be to break hollywood and the GB francise to consider a new look? It is high time an entire new generation should appreciate the idea of melted marshmellow flodding the streets of NY.

What about this as a cast?

Dr. Peter Venkman: Vince Vaughn
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Will Ferrell
Dr. Egon Spengler: Gary Oldman
Winston Zeddmore: Dave Chappelle
Dana Barrett: Helen Bohem Carter
Louis Tully: only Rick Moranis plays this guy.

I find that CGI technology still has a "fake" look to it. There was an episode of CSI Miami a few weeks back that created a CGI shark and boat fire - it was horrible!I kept waiting for them to divulge the big joke.

I like your choices for the new characters, althouuh I don't think anyone can replace Bill Murray. I say keep the marshmallow man and the cheesy ghosts - that was the charm of Ghostbusters!

yeah, youre right when they do rush jobs it looks soooooo terrible. if you get a team on movie budget, you get LOTR, Polar Express or Final Fantasy.

I watched it this afternoon on TV, and thought of it a while back. THe jokes are the best..at the beginning buddy getting shocked over and over while the hot girl gets nothing..

"Ray, when someone asks if you're a God, you say "Yes"!
hahaha, Venkman: "Alright this chick is toast."

Bill MUrtray is irrreplacable, Owen Wilson would be really funny though, too.

I don't know about Vince Vaughn, Will Ferrell, or Gary Oldman... I just don't see them as ghostbusters.

Thank you, B!!!!! Personally, I can't see Will Ferrell in anything but that's just my personal take on him as an actor. I love Oldman, but not as Egon. I also can't visualize Helen Bonhem Carter as Dana. This needs so serious thought...

After long and hard thought while in the shower, my picks are:

Dr. Peter Venkman: Jack Black
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Kevin Smith
Dr. Egon Spengler: Matthew Lillard
Winston Zeddmore: Don Cheadle
Dana Barrett: Ann or Joan Cusack (Ann wins my vote)
Louis Tully: Seth Green

TP Version:

Dr. Peter Venkman: Beerman (He can talk the talk...)
Dr. Raymond Stantz: Q_Zhang
Dr. Egon Spengler: SeeThe Sky or Brendan (Height is important here...)
Winston Zeddmore: IronChef
Dana Barrett: Tway
Louis Tully: Pardus
