Ghostbusters 3 Movie in the Works, Could Be Result of New GB Game

They may have their AARP cards by now, but according to Variety, the Ghostbusters are back in business, so much so that a new film is in the works.

Columbia Pictures is getting serious about scaring up a new installment of its blockbuster “Ghostbusters” franchise.

The studio has set “The Office” co-exec producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script for a film designed to bring back together the original cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.

Studio would not comment on the development and has been mum on recent rumors that there was interest in making another installment of the franchise. — Variety

Over at GoNintendo, Editor-in-Chief Kevin Cassidy doesn’t think Ghostbusters 3 would have gotten the green light without the hype of the
currently-in-limbo Ghostbusters: The Video Game.

There’s no chance in hell that a third movie would have begun its creative process without Ghostbusters: The Game happening. The game has brought a lot of the cast back together, put them into their old roles, gave them a great story to work with, and re-invigorated the franchise. The game isn’t even out, yet the buzz is bigger than ever. — GoNintendo

Now, if only all this Ghostbusters movie buzz could get the video game back on track.

What do y’all think? Do we have the Ghostbustin’ game to thank for this new GB movie sequel?
