Last week Dan Aykroyd, the last man on Earth convinced that a third Ghostbusters is in the not too distant future, announced that a new writing team had been hired to try and bring Ghostbusters III just that little bit closer to principal photography. Well according to Variety, that team is really just one man: Etan Cohen.
Now Cohen’s an interesting choice. He penned Tropic Thunder, but more importantly he was one of the writers (or at least one of the credited writers) on Men In Black 3, another threequel that a lot of people, myself included, thought would never happen. Cohen now takes over scripting chores from Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (The Office), who were hired on the project in September 2008.
In its article, Variety adds that the film “is expected to find original castmembers Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Bill Murray passing the torch to a new generation of Ghostbusters,” which says absolutely nothing as to what the film will actually be about. If anybody knows what that is, of course.
More news when – and if – it develops.
