'Ghostbusters 3' Moving Forward


'Ghostbusters 3' Moving Forward


Columbia Pictures have finally moved on with their plan to revive the 80's hit sci-fi comedy film about the parapsychologists-turned-ghost exterminators.

"Ghostbusters 3" is most likely to be well on the way as Columbia Pictures have hired scribes for their newest comedy fantasy project. On Thursday, September 4, Variety reported that the production company have picked up "The Office" writers/co-executive producers, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, to pen the script.

Reportedly, Eisenberg and Stupnitsky are expected to design the film to be a platform for the original cast, consisting of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, to be teaming up once again as the ghost exterminators. The pair have recently collaborated with Ramis for his directed comedy "Year One" by providing the script.

Earlier, one of "Ghostbusters" original actors, Aykroyd, has hinted on the possibility of the third movie being pushed forward. To E! Online, the comedian said, "Two sharp young writers in Hollywood are purported to be writing the sequel. It would be the third movie now. If I could get Seth [Rogen] and Judd [Apatow] to be a part of it, that would be a dream. Absolutely."

The original "Ghostbusters" movie was Columbia's highest grossing film ever until "Men in Black" and "Spider-Man" came along and was also the biggest grossing film of 1984 with the overall domestic sales of $238.6 million. It follows three misfit parapsychology research professors who were kicked out of Columbia University. Looking for another way to make their living, they provide services for professional paranormal investigations and eliminations.
