For years now there have been rumours, plans and speculation about a third Ghostbusters movie, but the film has been constantly held up, largely due to Bill Murray’s reluctance to return. However while he recently finally decided not to be part of the movie at all, he did give the necessary permission for things to move forward without him (Murray, Da Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and director Ivan Reitman all have veto power over sequels).
Now, buried in a Deadline report about Reitman’s Kevin Costner starring film Draft Day being put on hold is the news that Ghostbusters 3 may finally shoot summer 2013. Draft Day was delayed because Costner is too busy on Paramount projects (Jack Ryan, Without Remorse etc.), and there won’t be time to shoot the movie before Sony hopes to get the proton pack back on next summer.
Assuming it all works out (which is a big assumption where this film’s rocky road to the screen is concerned) Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Sigourney Weaver are all coming back to teach a new generation of Ghostbusters the ropes of the profession.
