Someone Is Funding a ‘Ghostbusters II’ Documentary on Kickstarter
Oregon-based filmmaker Bradley Bjornstad has taken to Kickstarter to raise money for a pair of Ghostbusters II-related projects. He’s asking for $100,000 to make a documentary about how the production of the disappointing sequel went awry, and he’s also looking to use the money to create “a definitive Ghostbusters 2 Extended Cut” with deleted scenes from the cutting room floor restored back into the movie, including a key plot point about Louis Tully (Rick Moranis) training to be a Ghostbuster that didn’t make it into the final cut of the film.
Bjornstad wants the documentary to feature interviews with “every main cast member and the main principles behind the camera,” which seems unlikely considering how elusive Bill Murray is and how much he hates Ghostbusters II. Landing Murray for the documentary seems impossible, but not as impossible as raising the remaining $97,000 for the project in 16 days. At least this ambitious, expensive Ghostbusters II project stands more of a chance of happening than Dan Aykroyd’s Ghostbusters III.
