Ghostbusters 3 Script Ready, Let’s Start Filming

We ain’t afraid of no sequel.

Ivan Reitman, producer/director of Ghostbusters 1 and 2, says that “a very good script” has just been finished for the long-anticipated sequel. Bill Murray is the central star in the script.

In past discussions of Ghostbusters 3, franchise stars Dan Akroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson have said they would be interested in reprising their roles … but Reitman also cautions that “nothing you’ve read on the Internet is accurate.” We’re only hoping that doesn’t include the rumor that SNL's Bill Hader is somehow tied to the project.

Most sources also say that Ghostbusters co-star Rick Moranis will not come out of retirement to reprise his role as accountant Louis Tully. Moranis left the entertainment business in the late '90s following his wife’s death.

Here’s the latest scoop on the sequel buzz spreading across Hollywood:

Mission Impossible: Even though he could do just about anything he wants these days, Star Trek‘s J.J. Abrams will be returning to familiar territory. Three years after the debut of MI:3, the director has agreed to reteam with Tom Cruise on a fourth installment.
