Fans of the Ghostbusters franchise, either rejoice or curse the fates, depending on what your opinion on a second sequel is. The first draft of the script for the proposed sequel is in, the writers are working on the second draft, and Ivan Reitman has announced that he will direct.
This all comes from Reitman himself, who was interviewed by MTV’s Josh Horowitz at the National Board of Review’s Award Ceremony last night.
Whether this will be a reunion of the original cast, a passing of the guard, a mixture of both, or any of the myriad of other rumors floating around is still a mystery. But Reitman stated that he plans to start shooting this year, making a 2011 release very likely.
