Ghostbusters 3 confirmed? And there’s good news. And bad news.

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!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
