Reitman to Direct GHOSTBUSTERS 3

Not really horror so much as comedy, but hey it involves ghosts.  MTV has revealed that Ivan Reitman will be returning to the director’s chair for GHOSTBUSTERS 3.

On the red carpet for the National Board of Review, Reitman revealed that the script has been written by YEAR ONE’s Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.  Reitman refused to comment on the plot, or reply to speculation of Sigourney Weaver as to what the sequel’s story might be.

There’s been a lot of buzz around the GHOSTBUSTERS sequel for over a year now, boosted by the video game that came out.  Now that Reitman has revealed that he plans to begin filming this year for a 2011 release date, don’t be surprised if the buzz picks up.
