Ghostbusters III: Hellbent or Ghostbusters III (Original Version) was the proposed sequel to Ghostbusters II. The film was announced in 1999, but went through many production problems throughout the years.


Plot

The plot would involve Ray, Winston, Egon and Peter encountering ghosts in a Hellish version of New York City and eventually encountering the devil himself.

Why It Was Cancelled

  1. Harold Ramis died in 2014.
  2. Actors Rick Moranis and Bill Murray expressed no interest in reprising their roles.
  3. The Sony Hack of 2014 may have been another contributing factor to the cancellation.

Results

  1. There was a video game with most of the original cast returning called Ghostbusters: The Video Game, which was released in 2009(which served as a continuation from Ghosbusters II).
  2. The original version of Ghostbusters III was permanently cancelled.
  3. In 2016, Sony released a reboot with four women as our Ghostbusters. However, the film was a box office failure and a critical flop due to how offensive the film was with a bunch of jokes that weren't amusing to critics and audiences, and the fact that people were being accused of being sexist since the film only had women in it instead of men.
  4. The film was reworked into Ghostbusters: Afterlife, which was originally scheduled to be released on July 10, 2020. However, the release date was changed to November 11, 2021 following the coronavirus. Ivan Reitman will be serving as producer while his son Jason will be directing the film. The film will star new cast members, including most of the original cast reprising their roles. The film will also ignore the events of the 2016 reboot and will be a direct sequel to the original films. Afterlife may have some elements from Hellbent be reworked into Afterlife.
