Sony Moving Forward with New Ghostbusters


Recommended Posts

Columbia Pictures has set "The Office" co-executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script for a "Ghostbusters" film designed to bring back together the original cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.

Eisenberg and Stupnitsky just wrote The Year One, a comedy that was directed by Ramis. Ramis with Aykroyd wrote the first two installments of the films. Ivan Reitman directed both the 1984 original and the sequel that was released in 1989.

Ghostbusters was Columbia's highest grossing film ever, until it was beaten by Men in Black and then Spider-Man. An attempt to make a third installment of the franchise was stymied in the dealmaking stage.

No deals will be made with the original cast until the script is ready.

Why can't Ramis and Aykroyd write it? This thing seems to get started and stopped every 6 months. The game is almost finished and they can't even release that. Is this IP cursed?

Or franchises (which was Akroyd's original plan, anyway). I mean, set it 20 years later where Ghostbusters actually have franchises around the country. That way you can skip all the origin crap, and perhaps have a cameo from Akroyd or Murray.
