Ivan Reitman will direct Ghostbusters 3, script in!

It's been hanging in the air for awhile, but now we have a 'yes' from Ivan Reitman that he will be returning to direct GHOSTBUSTERS 3.

MTV got the confirmation from the director, as well as a status on the script. Reitman says that he's received a finished draft from writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (YEAR ONE, THE OFFICE) and that they are currently hard at work on a second draft.

When it came to Sigourney Weaver's spoilers, he had little to say on the matter, “I’m not going to comment on what’s in the script and on what Sigourney may or may not have said. She’s been so busy on Avatar, I’ve not been able to find her. There’s some very cool things in the new draft, let’s just put it that way.”

Reitman also stated that they hope to begin shooting next year. Last month, Harold Ramis talked about similar plans for the film's shooting as well.

We've been suspecting that Reitman would direct the third installment, but it's good to hear something solid on it.

Extra Tidbit: Some of you may know this, but at one point Reitman was interested in directing BATMAN.
