Feb 2023 update: Although this film has not been officially cancelled, there is a petition on Change.org to get this work back on track and we hope that it can be finished. The concept is solid, and we certainly want to see it! Maybe they’re waiting for after the next Ghostbusters film to guage interest?
One of Dreamworks Animation’s next projects is B.O.O. (Bureau of Otherworldly Operations) which is scheduled for June 5, 2015 release.
For fans of this studio’s works, this one is sounding all too familiar. Maybe this movie is taking ideas from the aborted scripts originally intended for Ghostbusters 3, or it may be inspired from recent films from past months, like R.I.P.D. Other influences may be in store, but very little information has been released about a film that is set for release two years down the road.
The concept of ghosts fighting ghosts is nothing new. More films from out of Asia (especially in Hong Kong cinema) have suggested that the hero has to become a member of the undead in order to fight forces beyond his control.
