All the pieces seem to be coming together for Columbia Pictures' long-awaited sequel to Ghostbusters 3. Co-creator Dan Akroyd has kept us updated with semi-weekly updates while original director Ivan Reitman confirmed last week to MTV that he was interested in returning behind the camera if Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg's script was right. Ivan's back-up--Ghostbusters co-star and director Harold Ramis--has now confirmed the development process moving forward in a phone interview with Edward Douglas at ComingSoon.

Ramis, who's doing rounds for his upcoming Jack Black comedy Year One, confirmed his participation in writing the story alongside the newcomer Office scribes, Stupnitsky and Eisenberg.

"I wrote the story for the new movie with them, and Dan and I've been consulting. We're just waiting to see a first draft and where we are," Ramis told us, although he's very optimistic it will happen with Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson returning as well. "Everyone says they'll do it, they've all said they'll do it. No one has signed anything yet--we haven't signed anything either--but there's the spirit of willingness in the air."

I'll be more optimistic as long as Ramis and Aykroyd are involved in the writing, they wrote the first 2 movies, hell, they are one half of the ghostbusters team!

That's a good sign that Ramis is consulting and helping write the story. It assures that the story will be consistent with the spirit fo what the Ghostbuster movies are supposed to be. At least we hope so right?

The more news about this I see, the more excited I am about it.  I can now manage a "w00t!"

"We came, we saw, we kicked it's ass!"

I'm excited about this, even if it IS more like, "We came, we saw, we... <cough, cough>, where's my oxygen?"  "How do I put this proton pack on my wheelchair?"

I've already pre-ordered the Ghostbusters video game for Xbox.

I too am looking forward to this.  I just hope they come up with a better villian than Vigo the haunted painting.

I really hope this is a good transition film and I too was pleased to hear that Ramis and Aykroyd are involved in the story, though less we forget Ghostbuster's 2 story was also written by them, so it's a 50-50 chance that it will be great or just okay....hopefully without the remote controled Statue of Liberty and singing New Yorkers...There is a good chance that the colaboration with Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg is exactly what Ramis and Aykrod need!

Personally, I love their work, but just wasn't 100% happy with GB2.
