So Sony just hired Jason Reitman to be the director of “Ghostbusters 3” which is still in the works. Jason Reitman was the director of movies such as “Juno” and “Up In the Air”. He’s also the son of Ivan Reitman who directed the first two “Ghostbusters”.
Dan Aykroyd has been desperately trying to get GIII made for a long time now ever since the second one. Dan’s original plan for Ghostbusters was the passing of a “torch” kind of movie, the original Ghostbusters passing the torch to young ones. Dan’s been trying to push GIII to get made ever since the 2nd but there has been some setbacks ever since. The biggest setback the film suffered was that Harold Ramis passed away and then Ivan Reitman stepped down from directing GIII ’cause of it. Then Paul Feig’s all-female “Ghostbusters” reboot happened which was a box office failure.
It seems that Sony is moving forward with GIII still… a third film from the first two original movies.
Will the surviving members of Ghostbusters reprise their roles for the third one? Ya know… will Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray return? We’ll have to wait and see. I think there’s a big chance those guys will be coming back.
A lot of people want to be quick to hate on this since Paul Feig’s “Ghostbusters” all-female thing was a flop but don’t be so quick to judge.
I think Jason Reitman could do Ghostbusters justice and give the fans exactly what they want. I’m sure Jason will be getting plenty of help from his father Ivan anyways even though Ivan won’t be directing. I think this one could be better than the all-female reboot.
I’m gonna give Jason’s take on “Ghostbusters” a chance. I think he could do a way better job than Paul Feig. I haven’t seen the all-female reboot and don’t think I’ll see that one at all. I just hope Jason makes the next movie more like the first one. Hopefully the original cast comes back: Ernie, Dan, Bill, Rick Moranis, Sigourney, etc. Jason said that this is a continuation of the original series so there is a great chance that everyone might be coming back. It would be nice if Louis Tully returned though ’cause that was a great character.
