One Ghostbusters 3 rumor pops up, another one is almost sure to follow.
Quick on the heels of the report that Jonah Hill and Emma Stone have been offered roles in the long talked about sequel, comes news that the film may start shooting next spring in Cleveland. Coming Soon has spotted a report on NBC Cleveland affiliate WKYC that claims –
A Sony Pictures Entertainment executive confirms that Cleveland is being considered as a filming location for Ghostbusters III.
Now Cleveland substituting for New York doesn’t seem as far-fetched as one might think. The Avengers shot there for a portion of its climactic New York City fight sequence and no one seemed to raise any objections as to the final product. More recently the upcoming Katherine Heigle rom-com Miss Meadows wrapped production.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that there has been news about a possible production start date for the threequel. the movie had previously been reported as going in front of the cameras this past summer, spring of 2011 and the winter of 2009.
As to whether this is true or not, perhaps we’ll get some confirmation if Dan Aykroyd is spotted at the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame visiting his old Blues Brothers sun glasses on display there.
