Despite the fact that Bill Murray probably won’t appear, the death of Harold Ramis and director Ivan Reitman saying he’ll produce and not direct, we hold out hope that Ghostbusters III is still coming and, paradoxically, are terrified by the idea of it…
But, while Marvel deal with the mess that is replacing Ant-man director Edgar Wright, one of their reported choices, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, may be lining up the much anticipated third outing for the boys in grey… Ghostbusters III.
According to The Wrap, Fleischer, who has just become a dad (congrats, sir), wants to stay on a project that won’t take up the next ten years like attachment to Marvel has the potential to do. And, over at Sony, he’s the first choice for the supernatural sequel.
Lest we forget that Fleischer managed to get Bill Murray to return for a fantastic Ghostbusters homage in Zombieland (see below) and, frankly, that enough is reason for us to shout “Give him the job!”.
