Phil Lord & Chris Miller in Talks to Direct Developing 'Ghostbusters 3'
While I'm pretty certain that I don't really want a Ghostbusters 3 anymore (my rant from a couple years can be found here), Sony Pictures is going to make it no matter what, so that's just something we all have to deal with. Due to the passing of Harold Ramis, the script is being slightly reworked, and though director Ivan Reitman just revealed he would no longer be behind the camera this week, he's still producing and said the film is eyeing a production start later this year or more likely in early 2015. The only thing that could get us interested was Sony's 21 Jump Street duo Phil Lord & Chris Miller, and they're now in talks to direct.
Nikki Finke, who is no longer at Deadline, posted on Twitter that Lord & Miller are currently in talks to take over the franchise. They're the perfect choice after turning 21 Jump Street into a successful buddy cop comedy franchise when everyone was skeptical, they delivered the stellar Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs and continued their streak by making an amazing film out of a pile of bricks with The LEGO Movie. While I don't think we even need a Ghostbusters reboot, Lord & Miller are the only ones who I think can pull it off. We're ready to believe you! Thoughts?
