Harold Ramis Doesn't Think Ivan Reitman Wants To Make Ghostbusters 3
Harold Ramis is doing the rounds of publicity for his upcoming comedy Year One, and you know what that means: more Ghosbusters 3 rumors! Coming Soon had Ramis on the phone today, and he confirmed that he's still waiting to see the first draft from The Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, and will see where things go from there.
"Everyone says they'll do it, they've all said they'll do it. No one has signed anything yet--we haven't signed anything either--but there's the spirit of willingness in the air."
Ramis also suggested that, whoever directs, the movie, it might not be either him or Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two. "I don't think he wants to; I'm not sure I want to (direct). It's just a lot of open questions. Until we see a script, I don't think anyone really knows how they feel about it. Everyone's open to doing it, that's the main thing, that's what got it moving forward."
I'm pretty sure it's not necessarily Reitman's potential direction, rather the participation of the original cast, that has everyone tentatively excited about this. Will the movie be better if Reitman or Ramis, now an established director himself, handles it? Maybe. But it's just as likely that, with a new cast taking the story in a new direction, a fresh face could handle things even better.
