Ivan Reitman Confirms He'll Direct Ghostbusters 3
Posted 01.14.10 by Ryan
Ivan Reitman has confirmed to MTV that he will return to direct Ghostbusters III and that screenwriters Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky have indeed delivered a draft of the script.
They have delivered a draft. We are working our way through another draft ... good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed.
The director was asked about a few script spoilers that Sigourney Weaver let slip last month — that the movie will follow her son Oscar's rise as a Ghostbuster and Bill Murray will return as a ghost — but the director decided it's best not to say anything.
I'm not going to comment on what's in the script and on what Sigourney may or may not have said. She's been so busy on Avatar, I've not been able to find her. There's some very cool things in the new draft, let's just put it that way.
So when will Ghostbusters 3 start production? "I hope to start shooting in this next year," Reitman revealed. That could mean that Harold Ramis was right in thinking that Ghostbusters III would be in theaters by 2011.
