Ghostbusters 3 May Have Awesome New Team

Posted by Jeff Penner Sunday, March 23, 2014
This week, information has slowly been coming to light regarding Ghostbusters 3. It sounds like the unfortunate death of Harold Ramis, co-creator of the franchise, has helped to invigorate those involved. Although original director Ivan Reitman has removed himself from the chair, he has chosen to stay on as producer. So who could tackle the marshmallow-thick, slimy mess of bringing back this series? The answer may excite you.

The duo behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street, Phil Lord and Chris Miller, are in talks to help bring the franchise back into action. The great news is that these two are solid, with a great resume for reference after the success of almost everything they touch. With a possible (almost approved) script by The Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, the Ghostbusters may benefit from a modern take as well as a new team.

Even Dan Aykroyd is ready to move forward, tweeting "Packs on! Will have Ivan's back as I help him produce a GB 3 that Harold would be proud of." Bill Murray is said to still be uninterested in the project (I may be understating that a little), which could see updated proton packs and traps strapped to the shoulders of some young unknowns—a new team, possibly mentored by Ray, Peter, or Winston (has anyone talked to Ernie Hudson about all this yet?).

Personally, I'm all for a reboot as opposed to what sounds like a sequel. The franchise may benefit from a fresh take starting in modern times rather than a "new class" after the original team from the '80s retires.

What do you all think would be best? Ghostbusters 3 or The New Ghostbusters (aka starting from scratch)?
