It appears that the passing of Harold Ramis is leaving skeletons in the closet over at Columbia Pictures.
After Ramis’ sudden death last month, Ivan Reitman exited the long gestured Ghostbusters III, which then left the studio scrambling for a director.
21 Jump Street and Lego Movie duo Phil Lord and Christopher Miller quickly came to the rescue, allegedly strapping on their proton packs to bring the Busters back for a third time.
Now, Jeff Sneider of TheWrap is reporting that the duo are OUT and now Columbia is once again back at square one…
Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver were all at one time rumored to be returning, although now the story is completely being rewritten. It’s said to be about 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.
Will we ever see the Ghostbusters back in action? The franchise is too big to ignore, bit it’s starting to feel like it’s becoming a rush job, and that makes me nervous…
Hearing LORD & MILLER ended up walking away from GHOSTBUSTERS 3 job. They were the studio's choice but wanted to keep their options open…
