GHOSTBUSTERS 3 Gets A New Writer
It appears that Sony Pictures is indeed moving forward with Ghostbusters 3. Etan Cohen (Tropic Thunder, Men In Black 3) has been hired by the studio to write the long in-development third installment in the Ghostbusters franchise.
Recently, actor Dan Aykroyd revealed that new writers were hired to work Ghostbusters 3, the proposed third installment in the successful film series. With all the problems that the development has faced over the past few years, many were wondering/expecting that the film wouldn't make it out of development hell alive. But now, it seems like Sony Pictures is still interested in bringing the Ghostbusters back to the big screen.
Variety reports that scribe Etan Cohen - who previously worked on Tropic Thunder and another threequel, Men In Black 3 - has been tapped by Sony to rewrite the third Ghostbusters movie. Back in September 2008, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office) were hired to work on reviving the franchise (the original film was the highest grossing film distributed by Columbia Pictures until Men In Black and Spider-Man were released).
Concerning what the film will be about, Variety reveals that the threequel "is expected to find original castmembers Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray passing the torch to a new generation of Ghostbusters." Perhaps we can expect to see Bill Murray return after all?
