Original ‘Ghostbusters’ To Return Afterall? Harold Ramis Says Yes

Ghostbusters

A new chapter in the Ghostbusters franchise has been rumored for years and years and years. While a movie never seemed to actually be a possibility, we eventually found out that we would be getting a video game with most of the actors offering their voices to the project — meaning that this was our third movie. Not too long after that, though, it was announced that Year One and The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were actually working on a script for Ghostbusters 3, which would likely have a new group of younger and currently popular ‘Busters.

Now that we’re all caught up, original member and writer Harold Ramis recently spoke to MTV and wouldn’t ya know it, he claims that if the movie does get done, all original Ghostbusters will reprise their roles!

Now before you get too excited, Ramis was a little vague. To me it sounds like the boys will have roles, but they’ll be more appearances as mentors to the group of new, younger Ghostbusters. So the plan is apparently pretty genius — get the old names back in small roles to gain your nostalgic audience; then cast a group of top current talent to score your new audience; and ta-da, lots and lots of money coming your way.

Click over to watch a small video of the Ramis interview.

Another thing that caught my attention is that no one has apparently talked to Bill Murray yet. Ramis refers to him as the “thorniest” of the bunch and explains that he “wants to talk to him eventually,” yet he seems sure enough that all will happily take part in the project. I assume this even furthers the chances that the roles are likely to be pretty minor, and/or that they had all previously made verbal promises to return if this attempt worked out. Currently, they’re all just waiting for the script to come around to see if it’s up to par. Imagine having that pressure on you as a writer.
