Could it be? Is Ghostbusters III finally confirmed?!
Deadline are running an article about Ivan Reitman’s football movie Draft Day – set to star Kevin Costner – and deep in the article is this little bit:
“Paramount chose not to make it in the small window that Reitman has before he is expected to finally get the long-gestating Ghostbusters reboot in front of the cameras next summer for Sony Pictures (sans Bill Murray). It would be tough to find room to squeeze in the football film and get done before Reitman goes back to Ghostbusters duty. Paramount insiders tell me that if the film can’t happen in this nearly impossibly short window, the studio could simply hang on to Draft Day, and make it after Reitman and Costner finish their obligations.”
So, it looks like Sony have finally set the ball rolling on GB3. But without Bill Murray – we kinda knew this was going to happen, didn’t we? – we need to go and let this sink in a little. It’s great that Ivan Reitman is attached to direct. This is good news. but are we ready for Ghostbusters without Bill Murray? No.
But we DO want to finally shout ‘Who Ya Gonna Call?’ again!
