Reitman to direct "Ghostbusters 3"?

http://www.cinematical.com/2010/01/1...hostbusters-3/

Good news, everybody! Whilst doing the press line at the National Board of Review's red carpet event, MTV's Josh Horowitz volleyed a series of Ghostbusters 3 questions off of producer Ivan Reitman and ended up getting a nice chunk of actual news instead of further conjecture. When asked about the script, Ivan confirmed that Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky have already turned in a completed draft for part 3 and that a new draft is currently being worked through, much to the delight of all involved. When asked about a potential start date, Ivan revealed that he hopes to start shooting it within the next year.
Exciting if true

After I finally got a fouth Indiana Jones, which I mostly loved and a Rambo 4 I didn't know I was going to love this movie is my most requested.

Hope they get going on it soon!

Re: Reitman to direct "Ghostbusters 3"?

Here's a bit that was news to me

Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Sigourney Weaver are all, barring some kind of cataclysmic, joy-hating turn of events, returning as well (I haven't seen confirmation on Ernie Hudson). And if that's not good enough news, even Rick Moranis is said to be willing to leave retirement to reprise his role as their accountant, Louis Tully!
Rick Moranis? Sigourney Weaver? Awesome. Last I heard they weren't interested.

Oh, and as far as the Bill Murray as a ghost rumor that Sigourney Weaver started is concerned, Ivan Reitman wouldn't comment other than to say that there are some "very cool things in the new draft."
Bill Murray as a ghost? Or not?

Two decades on, this might actually happen. I'm excited.

You know, the Ghostbusters 3 idea of the old guard and new guard is so old that Aykroyd had the idea of Chris Farley, Will Smith and maybe Ben Stiller as the new ghostbusters.

The lack of news regarding Ernie Hudson is disturbing.

Plus-Reitman directed GB 1. Minus-Reitman directed GB 2.

It's a wash, so I'm waiting and seeing.

Don't worry friend, he'll be there. I think the core four wouldn't do it without each other.

If he's asked, and he should be, I can't think of why he'd turn it down. Not like his schedule is packed.

The man was a joy to see at AdventureCon in Knoxville last year. He put on the GB jumpsuit, posed for pics by a mock-up Ecto-1 and signed for some 5hrs straight. Stand up guy who seemed to relish his GB affliation.

Surely, he'll be there. He has to be. They asked Moranis for gods sake they have to ask Ernie. Unless someone shows where and why he turns it down I'm planning on him being in the mix.

Re: Reitman to direct "Ghostbusters 3"?

I'm very concerned in regards to Ramis' weight. He looks like a mini version of Orson Wells. Plus Ramis...he's kind of sucked these past few years.

Dan has gotten big as well.

What's your source on this? The last I heard Weaver was out of the project and Moranis wasn't going to come out of retirement (and good riddance).

The last I heard, one of Bill Murray's conditions for returning was that Hudson got equal footing with the other three. Assuming this is true, if Murray is back, so is Hudson.

I heard about that! How many actors of other franchises have ever dressed up in character for fans? Not many. Really cool gesture on his part.

Re: Reitman to direct "Ghostbusters 3"?

I think it would be odd to leave Hudson out, he came back for the ghostbusters game afterall.

Two things worry me about this movie, number one is that after all this time I don't care what news you tell me I wil believe it when I see it. The second and not to sound insulting but Dan has clearly had a comfortable few years, believing him as a ghostbuster now might be a bit too much.

I quoted from the article that was linked at the top of the thread.

Re: Reitman to direct "Ghostbusters 3"?

I'm definitely excited at the news... I just wish this was happening 10 years ago. The original actors are so old, fat and gray now they won't be able to do much without looking ridiculous, and yet I'm not all that interested in watching NEW actors running around chasing ghosts either.
