The world of Ghostbusters fandom has been frothing at the mouth recently at the thought of a third movie finally getting the go ahead. Earlier in the week, ‘The Office’ writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were said to be writing a script for a third movie. Harold Ramis has been working with the writers on the Jack Black comedy ‘Year One’ and sent the following email to The Chicago Tribune regarding the status of GB3…
“yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my year one writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. judd apatow is co-producing year one and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. not much else to say at this point. everyone is confident a decent script can be written and i guess we’ll take it from there.
Aside from his aversion to capital letters, it seems that Ramis is confident of not only bringing the team back together, but perhaps adding some of the Apatow family to the project – ‘Ghostbusters’ with Seth Rogen, Paul Judd, Jonah Hill and Michael Cera? Yes, please.
