‘Ghostbusters III’ Hopes to Trap ‘Zombieland’ Director?

Ghostbusters-15

Columbia Pictures hasn’t given up on Ghostbusters III, yet, and have set their sights on another in-house director to take the reigns for Ivan Reitman, who stepped out of the director’s chair after the passing of Harold Ramis.

Says TheWrap, Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is being considered to direct Ghostbusters III for Sony, for whom he directed Zombieland and 30 Minutes or Less, though that project isn’t heading into production nearly as soon.

I’d welcome Fleischer with open arms, especially because Zombieland carries a similarly fun tone to Ghostbusters, and even more so because he’s worked with Bill Murray (maybe he can convince him to return?)

Ultimately, though, it sounds as if the project really has been put on the back-burner, unfortunately, and it looks as if this “merry-go-round” will continue to twirl. Any rumored cast names should be swept under the rug as the “reboot” button has clearly been pushed.

    Would be an awesome choice for sure!
    I’d say either him or Drew Goddard of Cabin in the woods and maybe Jonathan Levine. (Warm Bodies)

      While I think this franchise should remain dormant, Levine is an inspired suggestion.

    I wonder what zombie ghosts look like. Do they still eat brains or would they they just stumble around hoplessly seeking intestines but never being satisfied?

    oh my god just let it go.

    Let it go, let it go
    Can’t hold it back anymore
    Let it go, let it go
    Turn away and slam the door
    I don’t care
    what they’re going to say
    Let the storm rage on.
    The cold never bothered me anyway

    Since the passing of Harold Ramis and the many issues with Mr. Murray, my gut tells me a third movie might be scrapped once again. I wouldn’t be surprised if they decided to try to attempt a complete reboot and remake the first film. God, I hope they don’t.

    I haven’t seen anyone desecrate a corpse this badly in years… and I just watched Dead Girl. Anyways, let’s leave this franchise alone and yes, Zombieland is great. 30 Minutes and Gangster Squad are debacles. I have no faith in Fleischer.
