Report: Harold Ramis confirms Ghostbusters 3 film is definitely happening, original cast in talks of returning, and also Ivan Reitman may direct after all!!!

This is great news that the Ghostbusters 3 film is moving forward.

Harold Ramis himself sent a brief e-mail to confirm the news of the new Ghostbusters film that just got the greenlight. How did Columbia find the Office writers? Well since the Office writers are currently working on Ramis’s new directed film “Year One”, I’m pretty sure Harold himself reccomended those writers to Columbia for the GB-3 film. Ramis says he is in negotiations with Ivan Reitman to return back to directing the next Ghostbusters film. That’s also great news!!!!

We all know that Bill Murray doesn’t really want to reprise his role in a live action film, but Ramis said in the article he’s trying to talk him into being involved on some level. Maybe give Peter Venkman a small role or something. Ramis also announced that he and the Ghostbusters gang are finished doing voice overs for the new video game. There are definitely good possibilities that Ramis may return as Egon, Bill return as Peter, Dan return as Ray, and Ernie return as Winston for the film too.

wOOt! We’re gonna get the Ghostbusters video game and new movie both at the same time! Sweet!

As for who the new Ghostbusters will be that the original cast will pass the torch along too, I don’t agree with actor choices in that blog.

My choices for the new Ghostbusters: Ben Stiller, Rick Moranis, Sean William Scott, Dwayne Johnson

  1. YES I have been waiting for GB3 for years. I also think the 3rd should have the original cast in it cause it’ll feel more real cause the fans of the previous films can relate more to the original cast & characters they played as in the past GB films and will have a feel of originality and a welcome back to the Ghost Busters world and how great the reunion of the original 4 would be not to be played as the characters still in they’re prime it but to be aged as well as the ones who acted as them are cause then it brings more fire into a story as a group of older guys now who still have that need for scare and excitement and get together to make 1 last come back (Maybe even have people in training involved to) cause then at the end of the movie it’ll give closure to the characters of Peter Venkman, Raymond Stantz, Egon Spengler & Winston Zeddmore

  3. As probably the biggest fan of Ghostbusters ever, I think to have any one other than the orig cast- would be a nice gaurentee for a flop- like ‘the lost boys 2’…I can’t imagine any reason for Bill Murray to have said no to this project- he has become such a loved charactor through the Ghostbuster movies- he’s done some excellent films- ‘what about Bob?’ being another of my all time fav films & Scrooged. I hate it when this happens- it’s like actors forget their roots- and over look what they are most loved for! Oh & I met Ernie (I just wanted to get that in somewhere-)he is so sweet, and the years certainly have not taken a toll on him- he actually looked younger! What about Miss Weaver? Is she on board? Was so looking forward to the game release too- but its been delayed too many times- I just hope this movie happens- I’m so excited that if it does happen- I will do anything possible to go to the premiere- at the very least- I’ll be in London to catch a glimpse as the stars arrive- somthing I’ve never done before- nor ever wanted to do!
