According to Firsthowing, there has been another development regarding the Ghostbusters 3 film. This information apparently, comes from a reliable source who states that the director of the first two films, Ivan Reitman, is seriously considering directing the third installment. The actors from the previous movies including, Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson, and Rick Moranis are already attached to reprise their roles in the new film.
Here is what the source had to say about Ivan Reitman directing:
“While he’s attached, the word is that he hasn’t decided whether or not he really wants to direct, yet.”
Reitman hasn’t directed much in the past few years, so this would pull him out of his pseudo-retirement (he’s been wrapped up in the producing world). It would be interesting to know what’s holding him back from agreeing to do the film. Does it have anything to do with the script? Is he hoping to make changes to it and then sign on? According to the source, the possible story might be along the lines of something like this:
“The sequel takes place when the paranormal researchers ‘reopen’ their ghost removal service after it has been closed for quite a few years.”
All of this information does not seem like a solid yes, although it sounds like all the original people are willing to be in the project. I am not sure where I stand on this. Although I love Ghostbusters, I can’t help but think that a third film would come out terrible. But if the story is good then by all means go for it.
