It’s the movie where the rumours never end!
The incredibly long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 has been given some blows as of late as the rumours of The LEGO Movie and directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller turning down the project and further news that Bill Murray will not be coming back to reprise his role as Peter Venkman. But it seems the rumour mill continues to spin.
According to The Wrap while writing a piece on Marvel’s own long-gestating movie Ant-Man, they added this little tidbit about Ruben Fliescher and his possible involvement with Ghostbusters 3:
Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer is also in the mix for the high-profile [Ant-Man] job, but he just had a baby with his wife, publicist Holly Shakoor Fleischer, and may be reluctant to take a demanding gig that will require such a big commitment. He’s also 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.
Ghostbusters 3 is expected to be going into production later this year, or possibly early next year in New York. The script has been written by Etan Cohen (Men in Black 3) and will (presumably) focus on a new set of Ghostbusters. Original stars Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson are expected to return, but there has been no movement on Bill Murray.
Although, Fleischer did work with Murray on Zombieland…
