Report: Ivan Reitman says he is down with doing “Ghostbusters 3” if the final script is worth doing…

MTV News spoke with “Ghostbusters” director, Ivan Reitman about possibly directing the third film. He says he is interested in returning as director for “G3” but only if he feels that the story is worth doing it. He is a very important director for the series since he did the first two, so he says he wouldn’t walk away from the third one at all.

Bill Murray came up with the idea of making females as Ghostbusters, Dan Aykroyd liked the idea and threw a couple of actresses in that he would like to see in it. Ivan Reitman replied to Bill and Dan’s idea, saying that he doesn’t know if the “Office” writers will go for the female Ghostbuster idea in the final script or not.

I’m sure “The Office” writers will make a final script to make Ivan happy enough to go back on board directing. I hope they do go for the female Ghostbuster idea as well. Being a Ghostbuster doesn’t always have to be a man’s job, right? Women can be quicker and smarter when hunting down the ghosts, so I can see why they want a female Ghostbuster.

Lets hope they make the 3rd one, similar to the first one. If they make it more like “Ghostbusters 2”, then I won’t be interested in it.


Report: Dan Aykroyd says, “Ghostbusters III” could start filming this year, but who will direct?

Dan Aykroyd, confirms the news that “Ghostbusters III” could start filming this winter. They tried to get Ivan Reitman to direct the 3rd film but he’s too busy producing other films. They said if Ivan turns down the opportunity to direct a third film, Harold Ramis, says he is game to directing the third film himself.

Bill Murray once gave the idea that he would like to see females become Ghostbusters in the new one, look like they are agreeing with Bill’s idea. Dan Aykroyd says he wants Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku to be the new female ghostbusting ass kickers.

I am loving the idea of hot babes being Ghostbusters!!! Great choices on Alyzza and Eliza. They haven’t been casted yet, they were just ideas thrown in by Dan Aykroyd, so hopefully these two gorgeous ladies will get confirmed for the film.

Who will be the new young male Ghostbusters? As long as they don’t get Robert Pattison, Chace Crawford, Shia Labeouf or Zac Efron, I’m happy.

I think they should go for Chris Pine from “Star Trek” and Seth Rogen maybe? Since “Ghostbusters” films are comedy too, Seth Rogen would be a perfect choice for a Ghostbuster to bring humor into it. Seth is not that old, he’s about 27 or something like that?

Glad that G3 is still moving forward.
