LEGO MOVIE Duo Reportedly In Talks To Direct GHOSTBUSTERS 3
According to the ever-reliable Nikke Finke, Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street) are on Sony's radar to take over directing duties from the departing Ivan Reitman on the third Ghostbusters flick. Click on for more.
We recently found out that Ivan Reitman was stepping down as director for the long-in-development Ghostbusters 3 after the passing of his close friend Harold Ramis. Word was that he and Sony would launch an immediate search for a replacement in order to facilitate an early 2015 shoot, and now former Deadline scooper Nikke Finke reports that they may have found a pair of 'em; as The Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller are in talks to come aboard.
Everything Lord and Miller touches seems to turn to gold, and after the incredible success of The Lego Movie it's no surprise that Sony would like these guys to attempt a similar Box Office coup with the troubled Ghostbusters prequel. But this would also be great news for fans, as the pair have proven themselves top be endlessly inventive, and at times subversive film makers. If they were to sign on, I think this movie would start to look like a much better idea in many people's eyes.
