Ivan Reitman, of course. Bloody Disgusting has confirmed that the Ghostbusters/ Ghostbusters II director and producer is attached to produce the in development sequel but hasn’t decided whether he wants to direct or not. They also confirm that the script, written by The Office/Year One writers Gene Stupnitski and Lee Eisenberg, has Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson reopening their paranormal removal business after it had been shuttered for several years.
If Reitman does slide into the director’s chair for this, let’s hope that it will restore his creative energies. His last couple of films – Six Days Seven Nights (1998), Evolution (2001) and My Super Ex-Girldfirend (2006) – really weren’t all that great. And it is a bit disheartening to see the director of Ghostbusters, Stripes and Dave to be so off his game in recent years.
