Ivan Reitman Steps Down As Director For GHOSTBUSTERS 3 – Production Still Set For 2015

ghostbusters 3

After the sudden loss of Harold Ramis, it was reported that the script for the third GHOSTBUSTERS movie was being rewritten and now we have news that director Ivan Reitman has decided not to direct the movie but there’s a little good news. Reitman will stay attached to the “cursed” project (as a producer) and help find a worthy director for the movie that is now set to begin production in 2015 in New York.

Here’s what Reitman told Deadline in a recent interview;

“[W]e now have a draft that is very good. 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.”

This draft is said to follow a new generation of Ghostbusters with cameos from some of the original cast.
