Some more quick news has come in pertaining to the possibility of a Ghostbusters 3. THR is reporting that Katie Dippold, who wrote Paul Feig’s female buddy action comedy The Heat, is reteaming with the director for Sony’s new Ghostbusters movie.
After years of development as a sequel with the intent to bring back the original team (Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis), script setbacks eventually led a path to focus on a new generation. This deal was sealed once Ramis died earlier this year and then original director Ivan Reitman left in March.
Feig came on board to rejuvenate the project in August. Since his arrival rumors abound that the Ghostbusters would now be a female team and the project would no longer be connected to the earlier movies but launch a new series.
Of course the above could all very well be bullshit, and honestly, given how long we’ve been talking about this, we stopped caring around a year ago. Still… we soldier on in the name of spite and Internet journalism… such as it is.
