Female ‘Ghostbusters’ Officially A Go; Paul Feig To Direct, ‘The Heat’ Writer Will Pen Script
  |  @   |  

After waiting years for Ghostbusters 3 to happen, news broke today that we will be finally getting it. Just not the one you’d might expect to see. Bill Murray had expressed interest in seeing the franchise go through a reboot with an all female cast, and that of course sparked talks amongst fans. Though we do not know who will be casting, Paul Feig confirmed that he will be directing the film, and that The Heat writer Katie Dippold will pen the script.

Dan Aykroyd has repeatedly kept Ghostbusters 3 hopes alive, but with Murray uninterested in the project and the passing of Harold Ramis, any hopes of bringing the crew back together were slim. So seeing Feig taking the reins for a whole new film could be fun, and the idea that this will be an all female cast is refreshing. Hit the jump for more.

Dan Aykroyd Believes ‘Ghostbusters’ Franchise Could Mirror Marvel Cinematic Universe
  |  @   |  

For whatever strange reason, Ghostbusters 3 news just won’t stay dead. It feels like we’ve been reporting on every single thing related to the long-gestating sequel, and nothing has come to fruition. The sequel is actually more in limbo than it is gestating considering a script hasn’t been written yet, but it is one film that refuses to die. Part of that is thanks to Dan Aykroyd, who is doing all he can to keep Ghostbusters 3 news alive.

Now a new rumor, which comes from Aykroyd himself, yet again, says that Ghostbusters could go far beyond just a trilogy. It could have a universe in the vein of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Ruben Fleischer May Direct ‘Ghostbusters 3’; ‘Ant-Man’ Directors List Dwindles
  |  @   |  

The list of directors Marvel had hoped would direct Ant-Man after Edgar Wright left the movie is quickly getting shorter. On Friday Adam McKay was in “advanced talks” to direct the film, only to pull out the next day due to prior commitments to other projects. That left Rawson Marshall Thurber (We’re The Millers) and Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, Gangster Squad) on the list. Fleischer appeared to be the one who could match Wright’s action and comedic sensibilities, but now it appears he too will no longer be in the running.

New reports say that Fleischer could be the top choice to direct Ghostbusters 3. Hit the jump to see why he may no longer be considered to direct Ant-Man.

‘Lego Movie’ Directors In Talks For ‘Ghostbusters 3’
  |  

Ghostbusters 3, the sequel no one really wants to happen, is being made whether we like it or not. But as we reported yesterday it won’t have its original director at the helm. With Ivan Reitman departing the big chair to take on a producer’s role on the long-gestating supernatural comedy rebootquel, the job of directing GB3 will doubtlessly be filled by a younger director. Or if the latest rumors are based in truth, it will get two directors.

According to industry insider Nikki Finke, the latest candidates to direct Ghostbusters 3 are none other than the unbeatable team of Phil Lord and Chris Miller. With a string of surprise live-action and animated blockbusters like Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 21 Jump Street, and most recently The Lego Movie to their credit, these guys are two of the hottest filmmakers working today.

‘Ghostbusters 3’ Loses Director Ivan Reitman; 2015 Start Still Planned
  |  @   |  

Speedbumps are nothing new on the long road traveled by Ghostbusters 3. The planned trilogy-maker has met many obstacles and delays over the years, and, at the moment, is still here. Say what you will about the movie, but it is most certainly determined.

The latest speedbump comes in the form of Ivan Reitman, who directed the original Ghostbusters and its sequel and was attached to make the third installment. Reitman has decided to step down as director and let someone new take the wheel. He will, however, remain on the movie as a producer.
