Columbia Hires Ghostbusters 3 Scribes


They’ve been hanging around The Office

In the wake of Ghostbuster 3 rumors with Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow attached, Columbia Pictures announced today that they have enlisted Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (exec producers on The Office) to write the next installment.

The plan is to whip up a new supernatural adventure roping together original Ghostbusters Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.

According to Variety, Eisenberg and Stupnitsky penned Harold Rami’s latest comedy Year One. Ramis with Aykroyd wrote the first two installments of the Ghostbusters films.

The trade was keen to note that original cast members are not officially locked until a script has been turned in and salaries are discussed. No word yet on whether director Ivan Reitman will come back.
