Bill Murray And Dan Aykroyd To Star In "Ghost Busters 3" Sequel

Columbia Pictures has announced it is moving forward with a "Ghost Busters" sequel, and is in negotiations to reunite the original cast of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, Ernie Hudson and Sigourney Weaver, in what is being called "Ghost Busters III."

The original idea for a "Ghost Busters 3" movie was led by original cast member Dan Aykroyd, who has already developed the screenplay and has been pushing producers for a sequel for the last two years.

The first "Ghostbusters" film was the highest grossing film for Columbia before being dethroned by Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith in the smash hit "Men in Black". The original "Ghost Busters" was nominated for an Oscar, Grammy and Golden Globe Awards, and has grossed over a billion dollars worldwide including toys and DVD sales.

Columbia Pictures has already hired two writers to develop the script for the third sequel, Lee Eisenberg and his partner Gene Stupnitsky. Both writers currently work on the hit series "The Office" with Steve Carrel and Rainn Wilson.

Stupnitsky is currently directing the Harold Ramis written and directed comedy "Year One" starring Jack Black and Michael Cera, the story about two lazy hunter-gatherers (Black and Cera) who are banished from their primitive village and set off on an epic journey through the ancient world.

The original Ghostbusters cast of Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis, and Sigourney Weaver are expected to officially join the project once the studio approves the script. Rick Moranis, who played the original "Key Master", has retired from acting, and it was unsure if the players could convince him to make an appearance in "Ghost Busters 3".
