Reitman Mulls Over ‘Ghostbusters 3’ Offer

Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman is considering returning to direct the long-awaited third installment of the spooky movie franchise.

Original stars Bill Murray, Dan AykroydHarold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are returning to the big screen for a second sequel — a full 20 years after Ghostbusters II.

Reitman, who directed the first two films, has been offered the chance to complete the trilogy — but is waiting until he reads the script before he commits.

He tells MTV News, “I’ve never ruled (directing it) out. I certainly was responsible in every capacity for the first two movies so I certainly wouldn’t wander away from the third one — especially if it’s something we all think is worth doing.

“The script is going to be turned in a month or so and we’ll see. All the casting and directing speculation is really just speculation.”
