Any decision on Ghostbusters III, the long, long gestating sequel, has been postponed until the end of March — this after Men in Black 3 writer Etan Cohen was paid a huge sum for a script. Shooting was to begin next summer but now couldn’t start before fall at best.As you already know – since we reported it earlier – Ivan Reitman will be returning to the director’s chair, and Dan Aykroyd previously confirmed that the plot will be centered on a new generation of Ghostbusters and hinted at the states of his and Harold Ramis‘ characters:
“My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can’t drive the cadillac,” he said, “He’s got a bad knee and can’t carry the packs… Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that’s the promise. We’re gonna hand it to a new generation.”The fall start will probably still allow the third sequel to open in 2014, which is the original film’s 30th anniversary, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed.
