Columbia Wants Ivan Reitman Off ‘Ghostbusters 3’


According to reports, Columbia Pictures wants to make ‘Ghostbusters 3’ without Ivan Reitman (Director of the previous Ghostbuster films), but it may not be that easy to do. The studio’s plan is to revitalize the franchise for next year by having the original Ghostbusters train a dramatically younger crew in, and along with that have a younger director handle things.

But Reitman has what is described as “extensive creative control,” including director approval. Also, the deals that Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis have allow them to “single-handedly veto and kill the project if they don’t like something.” The studio wants them onboard with the project as second draft of the script will be turned in to the studio in May from ‘The Office’ writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky.

Columbia was actually hoping that Reitman’s new project, ‘Friends with Benefits’, would cause a conflict with ‘Ghostbusters 3’ to make things easier, but Reitman thinks he can do both.
