New ‘Ghostbusters’ Movie Is Happening, but Without Original Director

Sony Pictures

Another chapter in the saga that is ‘Ghostbusters 3′ (or the ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot — no one seems to know for sure yet what to call this thing) unfolded recently. Legendary director Ivan Reitman, who oversaw the first two ‘Ghostbusters’ movies, announced that he will not be directing the third film.

Sony Pictures is now looking for someone to fill Reitman’s impressive shoes. This task will not be easy, but hopefully Dan Aykroyd’s continued involvement will maintain some level of quality control.

The third ‘Ghostbusters’ movie has seen its share of ups and downs. At one point, after receiving a script from co-stars Aykroyd and Harold Ramis, Bill Murray reportedly shredded the script, packaged it and sent it back to the writers. He said, “No one wants to see fat old men chasing ghosts.”

Ramis’ recent passing was another setback for the film, requiring writers to make further changes. So current plans for this newest chapter in the ‘Ghostbusters’ story may be for a reboot instead of a sequel.
