There’s a new Ghostbusters flick in the works, but it ain’t the remake/reboot with a hip, younger cast some have been discussing in the movie biz. It’s the third installment of the franchise, to star original ‘Busters Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson!
Yes, Columbia Pictures has tapped The Office co-executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script for a film designed to bring back together the original stars in a new adventure.
Ivan Reitman directed both the 1984 original and the sequel that was released in 1989, while Ramis with Aykroyd wrote both films. But Eisenberg and Stupnitsky recently penned Year One, a comedy that was directed by Ramis, and appear to be in his good graces, so it looks like they might be getting a shot.
Ghostbusters was Columbia's highest grossing film ever until it was beaten by Men in Black and, later, Spider-Man.
