"Ghostbusters" was arguably one of the greatest films of the 80’s and June 8th marked the 30th Anniversary of the movie’s release. To commemorate this “pearl” anniversary we want to share some interesting (and maybe some unknown) facts about the film that coined the term “proton pack” into our vocabulary.The Original Title was “Ghost Smashers” The original script, written by Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis was also set in the future and had the Ghostbusters traveling through space to take on ghosts. It was later edited it to reflect current times, which drastically reduced the budget from $300 million to $30 million. Dan Aykroyd’s Inspiration Stemmed from his Spiritualist Family Members Aykroyd observed his grandparents’ paranormal interests while growing up which inspired the ghost fighting screenplay turned box office sensation. Larry King’s Film DebutHe made a cameo as himself through a montage of media coverage about the ghost busting crew.Bill Murray’s Role as Dr. Peter Venkman was Written for John Belushi Aykroyd and Belushi starred on Saturday Night Live together and Aykroyd wrote the part of Dr. Peter Venkman with Belushi in mind. However, Belushi died before the script was complete. The role of Dr. Venkman was also turned down by Michael Keaton and Chevy Chase before Bill Murray accepted the role. We hope you enjoyed reminiscing with these fun facts. You can catch Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II on AMC Friday, June 6. Check your Dish Programming Guide for local air times.
