Phil Lord and Chris Miller won't be directing Ghostbusters 3 for Sony

04.08.2014

Who you gonna call? Not Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Last month most of you were happy THE LEGO MOVIE directors were in talks with Sony to helm GHOSTBUSTERS 3, but apparently they have turned the job down. The Wrap reporter Jeff Sneider recently tweeted the news, and he says, "They were the studio's choice but wanted to keep their options open..."

While it sucks Lord and Miller won't be directing the film, it also makes sense since they're probably going to be a little busy with Warner Bros' LEGO franchise. Now Sony will be looking at their second choice to direct, however we have no clue who else they were considering for GHOSTBUSTERS 3.

According to the most recent report, filming for GHOSTBUSTERS 3 should start some time in 2015, so Sony does have plenty of time to find a director, but who will it be? I was pretty pumped when I heard Phil Lord and Chris Miller were in talks for the third film, and hopefully Sony will land a director who is just as exciting as the duo. Knowing GHOSTBUSTERS 3's luck though, Sony will probably hire the dude who directed 47 RONIN.

Who do you think should direct GHOSTBUSTERS 3?

They can forget a GB 3, the key elements are gone, make a great documetary on the 2 movies and call it good.

Ivan Reitman is no longer directing. Harold Ramis passed away. Bill Murray has no interest and the chances of him joining GB3 are slim to none. I am not interested in watching Winston and a very out of shape Ray train a bunch of young Ghostbusters to appease the falsely perceived youth dominant movie going audience. Words can't describe how much the first film means to me and the sequel was a worthy effort but this ship has sailed. It's over. Virtually nobody wants to see this. Let it go.

So tired of this

Please whoever is in charge of Ghostbusters now, please just let it go. Each piece of rumour news I see, turns me off even more for there actually being a movie made. Please stop.

You know what, I wouldn't mind a new Ghostbusters animated series, if it means not getting a third movie.

That's too bad, because they were the only ones who could save this whole mess, IMO. Time to let this one die!

They must have finally watched Lego Movie and realized what a guaranteed piece of shit GB3 would be if they allowed them to make it. At least they did come to that realization!

I think no matter how many directors, or rewrites they go through, this project is going to happen. Against many of our wishes. But possibly get Evan Goldberg & Seth Rogen to take over as directors.

My guess is the sole problem is the script itself. It must have been rewritten to bits. Extra tidbit: James Gunn of Slither and Guardians of the Galaxy.

If have to make this film, he would be a great choice. Maybe bring Chris Pratt along as well to be a new Ghostbuster recruit.

Oh yeah, Chris Pratt too. He'd be a perfect fit.
