Ghostbusters Reboot to Shoot in Early 2015!

Following the tragic loss of Harold Ramis last month, it was reported that the script for a third Ghostbusters film was being reworked. Now, Deadline brings word that Ivan Reitman is stepping down as the film’s director and will help in finding a replacement as the studio targets an early 2015 production in the Big Apple.

The storyline is rumored to focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters with cameos from the original stars written into the script.

“[W]e now have a draft that is very good,” Reitman tells the outlet. “That the studio is very excited about… It’s a version of ‘Ghostbusters’ that has the originals in a very minor role. When I came back from Harold’s funeral, it was really moving and it made me think about a lot of things. I’d just finished directing Draft Day, which I’m really happy with and proud of. Working on a film that is smaller and more dramatic was so much fun and satisfying. I just finally met with Amy and Doug Belgrad when I got back. I said I’d been thinking about it for weeks, that I’d rather just produce this Ghostbusters. I told them I thought I could help but let’s find a really good director and make it with him. So that’s what we’ve agreed will happen.”

Check back for updates on the project as the become available!
