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.
