The second week of movie summer brings us as schizophrenic a set of releases as can be—one is an R-rated (and very rightly so) comedy, and the other a light animated feature for the whole family.

For years, it seemed as though Dan Aykroyd was the only person who seriously wanted another Ghostbusters sequel. Now it's clear that the executives at Sony share his fervor for a new chapter in the franchise, but it looks like they'll have to do it without the writing-directing duo that appeared to be their first choice to bring the series back from its 25-year (and counting) hiatus.

For years now, Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman have been talking about their plans for a third Ghostbusters movie -- and for just about as long, Bill Murray's been telling anyone who will listen that he's absolutely not interested in being a part of it. This is obviously a big problem, as Murray was a key component (if not the absolute best part) of both Ghostbusters movies, and yet development keeps grinding on.
