It is confirmed!! Thanks to the interwebs such as FirstShowing.net, Ivan Reitman, father of Jason Reitman (Juno, Up In The Air, Thank You For Smoking), has now been confirmed to direct Ghostbusters 3! Mr. Reitman has directed such epic pieces such as the two original Ghostbusters movies as well as Kindergarten Cop and My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
This is exciting news for the geek community, especially since everyone from the original cast will be involved! Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver have all been announced to be in the new horror/sci-fi/comedy. Now who are going to be the newcomers to pass the torch to? Only time will tell, but Ivan Reitman is saying that filming should begin something this year and to expect a 2011 release date!
