Harold Ramis who co-wrote the original Ghostbusters films and starred as Dr. Egon Spengler, told an interviewer that the long-awaited Ghostbusters 3 “is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011.”  The GB3 project will include much of the original cast as well as a new generation of younger Ghostbusters (see “Ghostbusters Film Moving Forward”).


Ramis told Heeb.com “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.”
