Could it be finally happening? Do we even want it to happen? The seemingly never ending saga of Ghostbuster 3 continues with reports surfacing that it might actually begin filming mid-2013.
After years of will he or won’t he (Bill Murray), speculation on what the plot might consist of (introducing a new generation of Ghostbusters to carry the torch), and whether Ivan Reitman would direct or not, Paramount appears to be adjusting shooting schedules to accommodate the threequel.
The way in which this news has surfaced is a little convoluted, however reports are that Paramount in considering its slate of films going into production has shelved the project ‘Draft Day’ that involved Ivan Reitman and Kevin Costner due to pressures with wrapping that film before Reitman is obligated to start Ghostbusters 3 production for Sony.
‘Draft Day’ is a film about the events of draft day in the American football league, specifically centred on the Buffalo Bills. With only a short window of time available Paramount has elected not to proceed with the film for now and to look at it again once Reitman and Costner’s schedules are more flexible.
Once again, no real announcement on GB3, however if schedules are being managed around Reitman’s shooting obligations, it’s starting to look more realistic.
