'Ghostbusters 3' being revived
If, like me, you love the first "Ghostbusters" and at least like the second one, here's good news:
"Ghostbusters 3" might, again, actually be a reality.
Franchise owner Sony Pictures has hired Etan Cohen to rewrite "Ghostbusters 3," reports Variety.
"The Office" writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky were employed in September 2008 to revive the hit franchise that started in 1984 with Ivan Reitman blockbuster "Ghostbusters."
In the third film, original stars Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson are "passing the torch to a new generation of ghostbusters."
Cohen's writing credits include "Men in Black 3,""Tropic Thunder" and "Idiocracy."
