According to Jeff Sneider of TheWrap, that is no longer the case.
Hearing LORD & MILLER ended up walking away from GHOSTBUSTERS 3 job. They were the studio's choice but wanted to keep their options open...

If this is true, it looks like this is yet another setback for this film, which has seen everything from countless delays to three missing cast members (Bill Murray, Rick Moranis and sadly, Harold Ramis). At this point, fans of the series might be better off wishing that the film doesn't happen, as opposed to getting a lackluster and rushed product that is inadequate for the job.
