Flip Side was a 1988 episode of the Ghostbusters cartoon series. In it, a portal opened up in Manhattan that led to an alternate world where ghosts were in control and humans were hunted by an organisation called Peoplebusters. A similar idea was in place for the Ghostbusters III movie script, once titled Ghostbusters In Hell. It fizzled, and the 90s went by with no third film.
The noughties were rife with rumour though. Dan Aykroyd was penning it, Bill Murray was in it, it would feature a new generation of Ghostbusters, Bill Murray had dropped out, Ben Stiller wanted to do it… Harold Ramis, who played Egon Spengler, died in early 2014, which shed further doubt over the project. But the latest is that the script is going through its umpteenth re-write and will begin shooting in 2015.
