Ghostbusters 3 gets a director

We all heard that Ghostbusters 3 was happening, the writers of The Office were taking on the challenge of writing the script. Really now, the video game released this year had a story with funny dialogue. So why can't Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis write Ghostbusters 3?

Oh well, now we get the news of who is directing the third installment courtesy of Ivan Reitman!

Seems to be a good move considering he directed the other Ghostbuster movies, but Gametab's forums offer interesting points

Ivan Reitman's movies haven't really stood out

My Super Ex-Girlfriend
Six Days Seven Nights
Father's Day

I haven't bothered to see any of these, and they don't sound that good. I do know that the supposed writers wrote Year One, which is BAD in addition to the uneasiness with Ivan Reitman.

I'm sure plenty of people will go out to see this movie, and I can hope they do a good job. It's been over 20 years since the last movie, a sequel isn't a bad idea.


  1. I also find it really stupid that Akroyd and Ramis WON'T do the writing on the new movie...

    Especially since the writing in the game was so good.

    It's good that they got the original director back... let's hope these new writers can do something funny.

    I'm somewhat hopeful, cause the writers of The Office did match the tone of the original British Office quite well... maybe they can match the tone of the original ghostbusters films.

  2. My Super Ex-Girlfriend: Totally Terrible 1/5

    Evolution: Guilty Pleasure 4/5

    Six Days Seven Nights: Cheesy but nothing awful 3/5

    Father's Day: Just about the most unfunny movie ever 1/5

    Junior: This is the most unfunny movie ever 1/5 just watch the new Nostalgic Critic and see for yourself

  3. I did see the NC review for it, its so bad that review about it was bad.
