They Really, Really Mean It This Time: Ghostbusters 3 to Start Shooting in 2015

I kinda wish they’d give up the ghost on this one. But nope. In a conversation with Deadline, Ivan Reitman confirms he’s out as director, but he is going to find a new person to make it. Also, all those rumors over the years about trying to get Bill Murray to read a script were pretty much true.

It was a really good script, but then it became clear that Bill really didn’t want to do another Ghostbusters and that it was literally impossible to find him to speak to for the year or two we tried to get it going. When Bill finally…well, he never actually said no, but he never said yes, so there was no way to make that film. We decided to start over again, and I started working with Etan Cohen, with Dan lending a helping hand. Harold got sick about three years ago, and we kept hoping he would get better. I kept pushing forward on the Etan Cohen and we now have a draft that is very good, that the studio is very excited about.

With only Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson possible as returning ‘busters, do you still want to see this? And do you really believe they’ll actually make it this time?
