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."
