Harold Ramis‘ new comedy Year One, starring Jack Black and Michael Cera, hits theaters Friday and so far, the film looks hilarious. However, Ramis is better-known for his acting role in the legendary comedy Ghostbusters, which he also co-wrote with Dan Aykroyd. Collider sat down with Ramis to talk about a possible Ghostbusters 3 and here is what he had to say about it:
“If we get a good script we’ll do it. I don’t think any of us feel we need to for our own careers or anything, but if people wants to see it we’ll try to give it to them. But only if it’s good.”
It is good to know that some directors still care about not ruining a perfectly great film by making bad sequels that only ruin how great the first films were. Many of you may want a Ghostbusters 3, and like Ramis mentioned, it’s got to be good…
“There’s a real script being written. We wrote a story -Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and I are consulting. (Bill) Murray said he’d do it. Ernie Hudson is in. Almost everyone said they’re be in. Rick Moranis has laid low in the show business for the last few years. It’s all about the quality. We don’t want to destroy a franchise that everyone loves with a bad sequel.”
Well said Ramis! I bet, none of us want another great film spoiled by a bad sequel. So far, it seems that everyone is in for the kill, but the big question is, will the script make it all worth it for a possible round 3? We’ll have to wait and see.
