“Ghostbusters 3” to begin shooting next summer?

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Who you gonna call? Well, you might be able to dial up the Ghostbusters next summer.

File this under “rumor” until it can be confirmed, but the normally reliable Production Weekly tweeted last night that they are “hearing” Sony plans to put the oft-discussed “Ghostbusters 3” into production in May 2011.

Of course, we’ve heard this story before over the years, with one or two original Ghostbusters (like Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis) telling us a sequel was imminent while another (Bill Murray) declared it dead in the water.

If this Tweet is true, though, then “Ghostbusters 3” likely will be directed by Ivan Reitman from a screenplay by “The Office” and “Year One” scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky. We’ve heard Sigourney Weaver and Rick Moranis would return, and we’ve also heard that the baton would be passed to a younger generation of Ghostbusters.

Stay tuned for confirmation, but it sounds like “Ghostbusters 3” might actually be moving forward.
