Ghostbusters 3 in 2011?
Posted 12.30.09 by Ryan
When Sigourney Weaver dropped some details about Ghostbusters 3, it seemed like she was giving away some spoilers ... but she's not alone. Harold Ramis confirmed to Heeb Magazine that there will be a new group of Ghostbusters in the third installment, which may see theaters in 2011.
Something's going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We'll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future ... GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011.
Ghostbusters 3 currently has no director, though Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 director Ivan Reitman hasn't "ruled out" returning to direct a script by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (The Office).
