Ghostbusters III tries to escape development hell with new writers
Looks like Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg are off of the GHOSTBUSTERS III writing staff. The OFFICE writers have been the longest linked to the project aside from Dan Aykroyd himself.
Aykroyd was recently spotted at a New York liquor store signing autographs and chatting with fans. When asked about GHOSTBUSTERS III, he said "We've got a new writing staff working on it now. It's got to be perfect. That's the whole thing. There's no point in doing it unless it's perfect. So that's what we're up to now."
GHOSTBUSTERS III has had one of the most convoluted journeys of any movie I can think of. After the first two were box office successes, you would think a third would have been easy. But, from rumors of Bill Murray refusing to be involved and shredding a copy of the script to stories that everyone from Seth Rogen to Jonah Hill and Kristen Bell being involved with a "next generation" of ghostbusters, it is hard to tell what is real and what is gossip.
At this point I say leave well enough alone and let the franchise live on in video games and fanboy dreams. What say you about the once again possible GHOSTBUSTERS III?
