I’ve having a super crappy day so I’m sure this will get debunked in a matter of seconds, but sources close to the project have told me that Columbia Pictures is circling Aziz Ansari for the long, long, long gestured Ghostbusters 3.
To be extremely clear, this does not mean an offer was made or that talks have even begun, it just means that Columbia is internally discussing this possibility. I thought it was awesome, therefore I’m reporting it to you.
A lot of our colleagues have a very good relationship with the comedian, so I expect Ansari to either deny the story to one of them, or blast us on Twitter by this afternoon. It’ll be funny because it’s quite possible that he hasn’t even had a conversation with the studio yet. Either way, I’ve got my fingers crossed that this becomes “official” in the coming months because he’d be perfect for it.
Ivan Reitman will (eventually) direct, with Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver supposedly confirmed for roles. Bill Murray is also rumored to be the holdup. “A ragtag group of paranormal researchers reopen their notorious ghost removal service, and a new generation of Ghostbusters is brought on board to be green slimed and trained to contain the mischievous spirits.” We previously reported that the new ‘Busters will be lead by Dana and Peter’s lovechild, Oscar.
