Posted on


Image Credit: Everett CollectionPaging Dr. Venkman. You’re wanted on the set of Ghostbusters 3. Ivan Reitman, the man who directed and produced 1984’s box-office smash Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel, says a “very good script” for a third film in the knee-slapping ghost-hunting franchise has been sent to Bill Murray. According to the Associated Press, Reitman added, “nothing you’ve read on the internet is accurate” and that Murray has not yet read a script for Ghostbusters 3. Reitman also says he believes that the new screenplay is strong enough to be filmed — “it’s good enough to do, to take the risk of doing again.” Reitman did not say who had written the long-awaited screenplay or whether the other two stars of the franchise, Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, had also been sent the script. Stay tuned.
