Ramis on ‘Ghostbusters 3’: Summer 2010 Shoot, 2011 Release

A day after Michael Cera campaigned for a role in Ghostbusters 3Ghostbusters director Harold Ramis has unequivocally confirmed that there will indeed be a threequel for the actor to star in.

Ramis also offered some very interesting tidbits about how the GB saga got to this point, what shape the story will take, and a timeline for the movie’s filming and release.

Here’s what the veteran director had to say: “Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new, young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the FutureGB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011.”
