(ANI): Columbia Pictures is set to churn out the latest instalment
of its spooky series Ghostbusters, and that too with the original
cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.
The studio has already hired "The Office" co-exec producers Lee
Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write the script for the third
film of its blockbuster franchise, reports Variety.
However, the studio has not revealed many details on the
development, and had in fact been silent on recent rumours of a
possibility of another instalment in the series. Ghostbusters was
Columbia's highest grossing film ever, until it was beaten by Men
in Black and then Spider-Man.
third instalment of the franchise was thwarted in the deal making
stage. According to sources, so much gross was pledged to the
participants that the studio saw no chances of making any money on
a third installment. While no deals will be made with the original
cast before the script is ready, but the gross percentage may turn
out to be a big issue.
