Ivan Reitman Confirms ‘Ghostbusters III’
Jan. 22, 2010,

“Who you gonna call? Ivan Reitman! The director (and producer) of Ghost Busters and Ghostbusters II let some very important news slip to an news team on the red carpet for the National Board of Review, where his son’s movie Up in the Air — on which dad Ivan is also an exec. producer — took home the night’s top prize for Best Picture,” reports Lauren Le Vine for

“Buzz about a third installment in the franchise has been flying lately, turning from mere hearsay to legitimate possibility a few weeks ago when Harold Raimis, writer and star of the original ghost-busting film, revealed to MTV that Ghostbusters III is slated for a 2011 release,” reports Le Vine. “Ghost Busters and Ghostbusters II star Sigourney Weaver was also quick to let several hints about the upcoming third installment fly while promoting her latest film, Avatar.”
According to Le Vine, “When MTV asked Reitman what he had to say about Weaver’s claims that Bill Murray’s character, Pete Venkman, would return in the third film as a ghost and that her character’s son from Ghostbusters II would be back in III as a ghost, Reitman remained mum. ‘I’m not going to comment on what’s in the script and on what Sigourney may or may not have said. There’s some very cool things in the new draft, let’s just put it that way’.”

“Although he wouldn’t confirm or deny any major plot points (and MTV failed to ask our most pressing question: what of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man?), Reitman would admit to some key facts that will allow fans of the franchise to breathe more easily until 2011. A script has been delivered, and a second draft is currently in the works,” reports Le Vine. “We are working our way through another draft… good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed,” Reitman told MTV.
