Third Ghostbusters Set to Begin Production in 2015

Posted by Unknown Thursday, March 20, 2014
With a rocky start, Sony is starting production of Ghostbusters 3. Bill Murray is apparently uncooperative, and unfortunately Ivan Reitman, the original director, will only be producing. After Harold Ramis (Egon Spengler) died, Ivan Reitman felt it was best not to direct the next one.

When I came back from Harold's funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I'd just finished directing Draft Day, which I'm really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I'd been thinking about it for weeks, that I'd rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let's find a really good director and make it with him. So that's what we've agreed will happen. I didn't want all kinds of speculation about what happened with me, that is the real story.

Sony Ghostbusters 3 2015 sequel
Without the full cooperation of Bill Murray and the original director, the movie might seem like an imminent disaster—but fear not! This sequel will be less like a continuation of the story and more like a continuation of the brand. So a new spin on the old idea—which could be bad or good. Let's hope for the latter! Let's also hope that Sony is going to treat the legacy the way it deserves and not just think of it as income. How good of a job can Sony do to keep the franchise's good name? And, more importantly, how much can we trust them to make a good movie that follows in the footsteps of the original Ghostbusters?
