Ghostbusters III in the Works?

"Ghostbusters III" has been in an unusual place for a long time. Last year Dan Aykroyd said the next film was to be animated. Then, (and I had no desire to post this because it was video game related) it was rumored that the "Ghostbusters III" project would be a well-written video game. Now we come to this. Take the next bit with a grain of salt. This information is subject to change since the people behind the "Ghostbusters III" project can't decide what to do.

The writer's of television's hit series "The Office," Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, have been bought by Sony to write a script for a "next generation" Ghostbusters sequel. The script is said to include all of the original cast, yet no one has signed up for it either.

Ivan Reitman, director of "Ghostbusters," and "Ghostbusters II" is also involved in the project. So it looks like "Ghostbusters III" is being re-born as a movie. I'm not entirely sure what the deal is with the video game, nor do I really care, but if a new movie with the original cast comes about I'd be stoked. If a new movie without the original cast comes about and we get a "Son of the Mask" type of deal... I'll be less than thrilled. I do hope "Ghostbusters III" turns in to something special.
