The fact that Columbia Pictures was bringing Ghostbusters back to the big screen for a third installment was likely the biggest movie news story of last week. Naturally, people want to hear the thoughts of the old gang about this upcoming reunion and the first opportunity has happened over the weekend. Harold Ramis talked to the Chicago Tribune on the announcement.
"Yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my [Year One] writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. Judd apatow is co-producing [Year One] and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity.
