Mother pus bucket! A new 'Ghostbusters'!
The rumors are true: A new version of Ghostbusters is in the works.
Harold Ramis, who co-wrote and co-starred in the original Ghostbuster movies, recently told the Chicago Tribune that the old cast will reunite for the project.
In an e-mail to Trib blogger Mark Caro, Ramis said Columbia Pictures is developing the script.
"(Dan) Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman and I are consulting at this point, and according to Dan, Bill Murray is willing to be involved on some level," Ramis said. "He did record his dialogue for the new Ghostbusters video game, as did Danny and I, and Ernie Hudson."
What will be different than the '80s originals? For one, Judd Apatow and his troupe of actors could be taking over as the lead characters.
"The concept is that the old Ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity," Ramis said. "Everyone is confident a decent script can be written, and I guess we'll take it from there."
So that's some good news: It's a sequel in other words, not a "remake." Because we need another '80s remake like we need to relive the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947.
