The long in development Ghostbusters III could be taking a bit of a different turn. With Bill Murray deciding to pass on the project, that’s opened the door to the third installment not being a sequel but a reboot.
Director Ivan Reitman tells Collider that Men in Black III writer Etan Cohan has been brought in to take a different pass on the script.
“Well, I’d like to go forward and make new things. I thinkGhostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see,” Reitman says.
We’re not quite sure if this means that this will be the passing of the torch from one cast to another as we’ve heard for a couple of years now or an out and out reboot. Of course, if you do reboot the film, how do you honestly replace Bill Murray?!?
