Hiding within an article over at Deadline, they report that Kevin Costner and Ivan Reitman’s football feature Draft Day is being put in turnaround by Paramount as Ivan Reitman will begin shooting the new Ghostbusters next summer.
Next summer is a long ways away, and there are quite a few questions that need answering before it goes into production (something I won’t believe until I receive a shooting announcement from Columbia Pictures). First, is it going to be a sequel or is it going to be a reboot? Is Bill Murray officially out? Or will he be included by some sort of other means (digital, animated etc…)? And, will the plot follow Peter and Dana’s lovechild, Oscar, who is rumored to lead the modern Ghost Buster team?
There’s a lot to find out before next summer as Etan Cohen rewrites Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky’s screenplay.
Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver are all rumored to be returning at some capacity. Personally, I just want to see Moranis return to acting. He is missed greatly here at Bloody.
