In our first bit of Ghostbusters news since that ultimatum was set forth, Bloody Disgusting has a nameless source that claims an animated sequel might still be on the table for consideration. Meanwhile ComingSoon.net was quick to check-in with the studio for a fast dismissal of a Pixar-like project. CS states that Sony folks aren't looking into animation and are still trying for a live-action film.
This is not the first time we've heard talk of an animated or CGI GB3 --flash back to April 4th, 2007-- when Harold Ramis was quoted on the matter..
"We've talked to Columbia about doing a fully and digitally animated Ghostbusters and that's another possibility."
Considering how the Ninja Turtles went from live-action 80's movies to anime-influenced cartoons, then to a CGI film, Ghostbusters may follow a similar format to keep the franchise alive. Or at least keep it un-dead.
Whaddya say, animated Ghostbusters film... yey or nay?
