A Little Birdy Told Me...

Alright guys. It's late, and I was just surfing my favorite film blogs, and stumbled upon this true gem of an update from /film...

UPDATE: The trades are reporting that Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (co-exec producers/writers on NBC’s The Office) have officially been hired by Columbia Pictures/Sony to pen the script for Ghostbusters 3. The script will reportedly bring together the original cast including Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson, Slimer?, though none of the actors have officially signed to reprise their roles. The Hollywood Reporter says that Ghostbusters I and II director Ivan Reitman is “aware and involved” in the project’s development. The “next-gen” storyline has also been confirmed, though no specifics were offered. Read below for further info on this aspect.

The original cast is back, Reitman is involved, and the "next-gen" aspect will be intact. Now, the only thing that is yet to be confirmed, is who exactly the next gen characters will be, and who exactly will play them. Rumor has it that Aykroyd has been talking to Judd Apatow to see if any of his cohorts would be interested. The initial plan was to have the four main guys from the 40 Year Old Virgin, to take over the reigns. One problem however. I'm not the biggest fan of the Office, so hearing that the writers from the show are set to pen it, has be a little suspect. What are your thoughts? Is this a film that will even be on your radar? Does it matter who they get to take over?
