Seth Rogen needs to stop sending us mixed signals. Over the weekend, he gave an interview that would seem to torpedo our dreams that Judd Apatow actors would, as rumored, star in the upcoming Ghostbusters 3. “It’s hard to imagine that would be good, isn’t it?” he tells Collider. “I mean just as a movie fan I am the first guy to be skeptical of that. It sounds like a terrible idea when you first hear it. At first hearing it sounds like the worst idea ever. I dunno. Maybe. I mean, that would have to be one mutherfucking good script.”
But back in August, when he supposedly first heard about the movie, Rogen was all for it! While promoting Pineapple Express, when asked about G3, he told Cinematical, “Really? That’s fucking rad! No one’s told me about it, you’re the first one… Are they actually remaking Ghostbusters? Sounds fun, though — I’m psyched about it.” Until we hear differently, we’re taking his flip-flopping as a basic confirmation that Ghostbusters 3 will star Rogen, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill, and McLovin.
