Ghostbusters 3 – Ivan Reitman back to direct

In an interview with MTV, Ivan Reitman confirmed he will return to direct Ghostbusters 3. Reitman of course is the man responsible for the first two films.

Reitman has also confirmed that screenwriters Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky have turned in the first draft of the script and are currently working on a second draft.

While the original cast are all expected to return, Reitman was unwilling to comment on the exact plot of the third movie. “I’m not going to comment on what’s in the script and on what Sigourney [Weaver] may or may not have said,” he told us. “She’s been so busy on Avatar, I’ve not been able to find her. There’s some very cool things in the new draft, let’s just put it that way.”

Shooting should begin later this year of all goes to plan. Colour me excited and terrified by the idea of a third.
