Ramis on Ghostbusters

Confused by the recent news about a new GHOSTBUSTERS movie? Well get in line because I've got enough questions to fill an entire press conference. Sadly there is no GHOSTBUSTERS 3 press conference but Egon himself, Harold Ramis, did speak out to the Chicago Tribune about the project. Here's what Ramis said in an e-mail to the paper:

yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my year one writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. judd apatow is co-producing year one and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. not much else to say at this point. everyone is confident a decent script can be written and i guess we'll take it from there.

I spoke to Ramis earlier this year at length and the guy really does have a soft spot for GHOSTBUSTERS as, obviously, Dan Aykroyd does. So right it looks like Sony is trying to rope in Apatow (and actors like Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Michael Cera, etc.) but nothing is confirmed. And Bill Murray is "willing to be involved" but to what level remains to be seen.
