It's happening! It's really happening!
Reporters recently caught up with Ivan Reitman at an event for his new directorial effort, Draft Day, but the topic on everyone's mind was Ghostbusters 3!
Ivan, who directed the first two Ghostbusters, shared some super sweet deets with fans of the franchise!
He revealed that the first steps of the movie making process have finally been taken. He said:
"A lot of directors are throwing their hats in. We're starting the meetings. We're going to do it."
Yay! Why are they even looking for other directors, though? Don't they think Reitman is the, well, reitman for the job?
Either way, we excited for the movie to finally get made!
Ghostbuster Ernie Hudson was at the Draft Day event, too. He opened up about how the death of co-star Harold Ramis could affect the franchise.
"Unfortunately Harold [Ramis] is not with us anymore. But it's going to happen. It's going to be really, really good, which is why it's taken so long… The fans have been amazing. Without any studio support, they make their outfits and cars and Ectomobiles. I was in Brussels, and about 50 guys showed up with their Ghostbuster outfits on. In every state in the country, there are Ghostbuster chapters. It's cool. It's nice to be a part of."
Aww! While it would be tacky to try and bring Harold back as a ghost, we do hope the movie pays homage to him in some way or another!
Ivan went on to talk about Bill Murray's potential involvement in GB3, but right now that's up in the air.
"There will be many people from the original cast. You're really asking about Bill Murray, and I have no idea. All the other movies I made with Bill, he never told me he was doing it until … well, the longest was two weeks. Meatballs, he told me he was doing it the day before."
Do it, Bill! The people demand it of you!!!!
