Rumors about a third Ghostbusters film being in talks have been popping up in
various media outlets for years, usually without much information to back up the
reports, but according to Variety, work on Ghostbusters 3 is already under
way. "The Office" producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky are penning the
script for the new live action Ghostbusters movie which will not have all new
actors playing the team of ghost exterminators, but will actually reunite the
original cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.
Office Producers Eisenberg and Stupnitsky recently worked closely with
Harold Ramis on Year One, a comedy which the three co-wrote. The filmmakers
involved in Ghostbusters 3 hope to reinvigorate the popular franchise despite
the significant number of years that have passed since the last GB movie by
bringing back the original cast and creative team behind the first films, much
like Harrison Ford was brought back earlier this year to reprise his role as
Indiana Jones in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
It's been 19 years since Ghostbusters II, and while it's hard to picture Aykroyd,
Murray, Ramis, and Hudson,suiting up again, Ghostbusters 3 could still work and
it could still kick a lot of ass. So what if they're fat and wrinkly now. Bill
Murray will always be Bill Murray and Ghostbusters will also be one of the
greatest film franchises of the 80s. I say, a third GB movie is awesome news.
