GhostbustersLooks like the next Ghostbusters project will be in the form of a videogame!

Vivendi Games and Sony Pictures are working on creating a Ghostbusters videogame franchise, the first game of which will be released by Vivendi’s Sierra label in Fall of 2008, according to Variety.

Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray, and Harold Ramis, who starred in the two Ghostbusters films in 1984 and 1989 respectively, will give their voice and likeness rights for the game. Aykroyd and Ramis will also write a story for the game which will take place in the early 1990s, post-Ghostbusters II, in what will be a new ghoul invasion of New York City.

Some of the films’ supporting actors have also signed on for the project, including William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray, and Annie Potts.

Developer Terminal Reality is making a Ghostbusters game for PC, Playstation 3, and Xbox 360, while Red Fly Studios is making a version for Playstation 2, Wii, and DS.

Aykroyd wrote a script for a third film titled Ghostbusters 3: Hellbent and spent many years trying to get the film going, though nothing ever became of it. (Various reports were that Murray did not want to reprise his role as scientist Peter Venkman, the head of the ghost removal service.) No word yet if Aykroyd’s idea for the third movie — which would have involved some of kind of portal to Hell to open up in New York City and even a possible trip to Hell for the paranormal investigators — will make its way into the planned videogames.
