Variety is reporting that Columbia Pictures has commissioned a script for a third Ghostbusters film, one they intend will reunite the cast of the original films.
This has been a long-rumored possibility. There was a video game originally slated for release this fall which featured voice work from Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson. But that was removed from the '08 release schedule, collateral damage from the Activision-Vivendi merger; officially, it's been delayed until next summer. There were rumors earlier this summer that the Apatow gang was going to get involved, rumors that were re-stoked by Aykroyd himself just this week. But this is the most concrete news yet: an actual screenplay, written by two producers for the US Office (Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg.)
Sure, they're all old and mostly heavier now, but why would this not be awesome? Even if Rick Moranis isn't interested?
