Ben Stiller != Dr. Peter Venkman

This is much worse than having a blonde James Bond [IGN, Third Ghostbusters movie planned]:

In a report attributed to InFocus Magazine, and picked up by various outlets including, actor-filmmaker Harold Ramis offered up some details on the long-in-development sequel, Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent. He even suggested who might take over as the star of the franchise since Bill Murray refuses to.

Ramis reportedly wants franchise vets Dan Aykroyd and Rick Moranis to reprise their respective roles in the sequel, which the report claims will be called Ghostbusters in Hell, but he has his eye on A-lister Ben Stiller to star as a new Ghostbuster.
No Venkman, no Ghostbusters 3.

Similarly, with no Jake, there should have been no Blues Brothers 2000. If you can't get the original band together, it isn't worth trying.

This story isn't new. It's been around for a long time. One site posted it like it was a new story, and as a result this rumour has spread all over the internet instantly. A script was written several years ago, wait until Dan and Harold start speaking to movie studios pitching their idea before getting all excited about how bad their choice of actors are. Or better yet, wait until they start asking people to be in the movie. Read, they know what they're talking about
