So...there's been some stuff mentioned on GBFans that are either easter eggs, or a big spoiler about the plot of GB2020:

Spoiler!
Allusions to Shandor and maybe even Gozer.

Everybody on GBFans think that would be awesome; they only seem to have a problem with it if it contradicts the Video Game somehow.

Again, it may just be easter eggs/fanservice in the broader sense of the word. But what if it's not? What if the reputed "love letter to the first movie" is rehashing the same villain?

Am I the only one who thinks another tap of the Gozer till is a bit of a disappointment? Like, once again, with all of folklore to draw upon, everything has to be about fucking Gozer?

To be fair, it's not out of the realm of possibility for Gozer to come back in some fashion (being a god after all) but yeah, I really, really don't want him to return for the new film, especially since the GB have defeated him twice. (Making him look kind of wimpy in the process.)

I find it interesting reading the speculation on the other boards that people genuinely think this movie is going to be about Ray in 'his' barn working on the mystery which he will solve with Winston and Peter coming in as emergency backup.

Ray doesn't own a barn in GB movieverse canon. He has/had a house, which, I'm assuming from the dialogue in the first movie he most likely lost at some point because the mortgage repayment scheme Peter helped to negotiate was terrible. There was a whole conversation in GB1 about this, and yet people still think Ray owns a barn for some strange reason.

While I have no doubt that the OGBs will appear at some point, I feel like it's more likely that the emphasis will be on the family, mostly the kids. They will be the ones driving the narrative on this movie.

Speculation is that the spooky house and barn are Ray's, but does anyone consider it might be Egon's? The dilapidation could be due the fact he's been gone for a good long while, now. Missing, dead, who knows?

It's likely that we are starting from scratch in this film. No-one knows anything. It's just a town in the middle of nowhere with some odd happenings every now and again. Egon's been gone for so long that the authorities presume him dead, and this spooky house and barn is now part of his estate so who are they gonna call? Egon's relatives! The girl loves the science stuff and starts the process of getting things working again which sets off some unknown sequence of events which leads to all hell breaking loose.

With some degree of desperation, they attempt to get into contact with someone who knows about some of this stuff. Egon's old colleagues. Maybe his old girlfriend might have known what he'd been working on in that place. The whole lot of them work together to sort it out. One last get together with the old team.

Nikki, you're probably pretty close there. I can accept that story line, I think.
