Reports yesterday and today about “Ghostbusters 3” directed by Jason Reitman, son of original director Ivan Reitman.
Readers with long memories will recall we reported the plan for “Ghostbusters 3” in December 2009. Ivan Reitman told us then about the next movie, with all the old stars and new characters including Oscar, the son of Sigourney Weaver and Bill Murray’s characters.
It’s been brewing for a decade. In that time, the all-female “Ghostbusters” came out was destroyed by evil internet trolls.
But here’s the original story. “G3” is set for summer 2020. It should be music to Huey Lewis’s ears since he wrote the theme music, lifted by Ray Parker Jr. The original song is “I Want a New Drug.” (Parker had another hit, “Jack and Jill,” that sounded just like Sly Stone’s “Stand.” Hmmm…)
