Hey, I can dream can't I?Update: I guess people liked it
Well this is the internet. Once you put something on it, it's there and free to be seen & grabbed at will. Here's just a few sites I've found in the year since I made this poster that have nabbed it for their own use-

It's actually kind of flattering to know that my idea of the three-headed ghost logo liked well enough to be used in discussions of a third film. I'm especially glad it was preferred to the other logos which just add an extra finger to the Ghostbusters 2 logo. I'm not hatin' I just never the GB2 logo that much to start with.Update 2:
Cast list on poster changed to reflect the fact that this movie might actually be getting made with the whole cast!
Notwithstanding Bill Murray's continued fence sitting... Update 3:
Wow everybody hates Ben Stiller... When I originally made this poster I featured only the cast names "Dan Aykroyd - Ben Stiller - Erine Hudson" and bunch of other random actor's names in the bottom text for filler. The reaction? People started posting this across the web, thought it was real, and expletives were generously expressed at Ben Stiller's name being anywhere near a no-ghost logo.
So why did I originally choose that roster? Well Dan is obvious. Can't do Ghostbusters without it's creator in tow. I put Ernie Hudson front and center just because the poor guy got shoved to the background for the last two films. But Ben Stiller? In Ghostbusters? Guess what... It was actually true! Well, over a decade ago that is. Ben Stiller, Chris Farley and Chris Rock were who Aykroyd & Ramis wanted to be the new Ghostbusters. I'm not making this up. Just ask your trusted friend Google: [link]
All the other celebrity names (A or B List) in the credit list at bottom were just randomly pulled from DVDs I had sitting on my shelf to take up space and make the white text look filled out.
I originally made this poster WAY before any hopes resurfaced GB3 might ever actually happen again and tossed his name in as a fun reference to that old attempt to make the third film. Once things looked decent that another attempt would be made with the full original (though geriatric) cast, I remade the poster to reflect that.Update 4:
The ultimate flattery via consumerism!
Just kidding! Kind of... You can now actually BUY PATCHES of my logo on ebay from this seller: [link]
I got one & love it!Update 5:
A fair critique of the old version of the poster: Moviecultists.com 10 Fake Fan-Made Posters That Look Real [link]
Funny that they mention my previous inclusion of "Bruce Campbell" and "Rachel MacAdams" in the lower credit list as the "fake" giveaway.
