While at various House of Blues openings, co-creator and star Dan Ackroyd has mentioned that they want Ivan Reitman to return behind the camera to direct the upcoming sequel Ghostbusters 3. The only issue of concern is Ivan's very busy schedule at the moment, which has Dan mentioning Harold Ramis as a credible back-up.

Not so fast.

With the franchise heating up as Columbia releases the films on Blu-ray this month (June 16), Ivan Reitman has indicated to the MTV Movies Blog that he could return if the script is right.

“I’ve never ruled [directing it] out,” Reitman told MTV News. “I certainly was responsible in every capacity for the first two movies so I certainly wouldn’t wander away from the third one—especially if it’s something we all think is worth doing.”

The original director also confirmed the recent hints that two female recruits could be joining the ecto-plasma team. Click here to find out more.
