Old ‘busters mentoring a new team
Chicago Tribune writer Mark Caro – upon getting word of last week’s big Ghostbusters 3 news – received an e-mail from Harold Ramis explaining where he and his fellow Ghostbusters stand on what Sony hopes is a franchise relaunch.
Here’s a partial reprint of Ramis’ e-mail (apparently, he’s not big on capitalizing words):
“aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. not much else to say at this point. everyone is confident a decent script can be written and i guess we’ll take it from there.”
Ramis also hints that the studio is keen with perhaps “tapping” some of the acting talent in director Judd Apatow’s films. Nothing is confirmed, of course.
