In Ghostbusters II, Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) has a baby son. His name is Oscar, but we never find out his last name and it strongly implied that his father is not Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), but actually that of the violinist from the first film. You know, the one Venkman refers to as the "stiff" and Dana refers to as "nose spray." In the clip below, Dana briefly mentions that Oscar's father left them to go play for the London symphony. Perhaps, Dana was lying and it is actually Peter's love child. I'm sure we'll find out in Ghostbusters III as Oscar is locked in to play a major role in the film as a fellow Ghostbuster.
Sigourney Weaver says that during one relatively recent conversation with Ivan Reitman, “I said, I have one condition want my son Oscar [from Ghostbusters II] to be a Ghostbuster, and he said, ‘We’ve already done that.’”

Also, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the pair that have directed 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie, and 22 Jump Street, explained to ScreenCrush why they passed on the opportunity to direct Ghostbusters 3.
Right now, we’re just super tired and we want to take a break. We’re doing a TV show with Will Forte. So, we don’t really know what we’re gonna do next, we just know we can’t jump into another movie like that right away.

GHOSTBUSTERS II - After waging a war on slime that cost New York City millions, the Ghostbusters find themselves out of business until an ancient tyrant, preparing a return to the Earthly domain through his portrait at the Manhattan Museum of Art, sets his sights on Dana Barrett's baby as the new home for his wicked soul! With the help of the Museum's possessed curator, he plans to turn New York into a really scary place to live! Now only the Ghostbusters can save New York City, by turning paranormal pest control into an art form!

Cast: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Sigourney Weaver, Harold Ramis, Rick Moranis, Ernie Hudson,
Annie Potts, Peter MacNicol, Harris Yulin, David Margulies, Kurt Fuller
Director: Ivan Reitman * Screenwriters: Harold Ramis & Dan Aykroyd

@CommanderShepard - nope. mysterious stranger. could be the doof venkman kind of gave shit to by the fountain/park in the first movie, but i doubt it

Had to happen this way. It's a shame that there's only gonna be two original ghostbusters in the film, though.
Personally, I think that Ackroyd should the CEO of Ghostbusters (Murray would opt out, as he has done in real life, and Ramis would have passed). He should be the suit in the office who has become corrupt and has made deals with demons to keep his Ghostbusters franchise in business and keep the world supplied with controllable ghosts to bust.
Hudson should be the blue collar worker, the old war horse, training up new recruits. He wouldn't be a co-owner of Ghostbsters, since he was paid work-for-hire in the original and not a founder.
If they can get Murray in there, he shold be the Mayor of NY. I mean that's just obvious, right?

More shit to not watch.
TheAbaryMan369 - 6/9/2014, 12:10 PM

Jollem@ The doof happens to be one of the finest musicians in the wrld.

*world. heh.
CommanderShepard - 6/9/2014, 12:11 PM
@Duke LMAO

Can they just not do this, it's getting sad. The only ghost that needs busting is Ackroyd's career.

Nic Cage as Peter Venkman's brother, Dick Venkman (former Chicago cop/detective turned Ghostbuster).

"Right now, we’re just super tired and we want to take a break." AKA the script was so shit that we didn't want to do it.
