Harold Ramis talks Ghostbusters 3

“I’m consulting with the writers…”

Now that Ghostbusters 3 is well and truly developing, the original cast have started talking about the project – since they’re all involved. Apparently.

"Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office," Harold Ramis joked to MTV, before adding more seriously that what everyone is really waiting for is a script from writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

"I'm consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and Ivan Reitman,” says Ramis, admitting that neither he nor Reitman (who helmed the original two films) is looking to direct. “I'm sure we're all hoping someone else will do it. It's a lot of work!"

But what will Ramis, Dan Aykroyd and Billy Murray be doing? "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles," Ramis tells the site. "We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."

Now we know that Judd Apatow isn’t directly involved, we’re guessing the casting net will be thrown a little wider than the usual Seth Rogen and company players…

      I'd love to see this. Rocky 6 was fantastic, and goes to show that so long as a long-time-coming sequel is written well, it can be fantastic. So long as it IS written well. Besides, just because a sequel is out there, doesn't mean we can't completely ignore it if its bad. I do that with The Matrix, The Mummy, The Whole Nine Yards, and plenty of others.

      Couldn't agree more with Matt. I'd love to see another sequel, but please let Reitman direct. I think he could easily establish the same tone of the first two which would easily lead into more adventures with a younger cast. Please write a role for Paul Rudd, though.

      I beleive that it would be a good thing as long as it kept to the original format and not go over board. Hope that all the original cast will be in it including Slime.
