After a level of conjecture unlike anything the world has ever seen, the details for Ghostbusters 3 are finally seeping out. In an interview with MTV, director Ivan Reitman said that he is directing the third film after all. Previously thought to only taking on the role of producer, Reitman has been talking around the question for months. But a simple “yes” was all he needed to give MTV to put minds at ease.

That said, the question now becomes whether or not Reitman in the director’s chair will, in fact, put the minds of fans at ease. In the interview, he stated that Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky are working on a second draft of the script now. “They have delivered a draft,” he said. “We are working our way through another draft… good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed.”

Reitman refused to comment further on the numerous rumors that have been circulating, including those saying that Bill Murray’s character Peter Venkman would be coming back in a form other than human. He’s ultimately doing fans a favor, as too much information now could soil the experience of the final product. With only one draft of the script in the can and at least one, if not several more to come, no plot point is guaranteed. So there’s no reason for us to go snooping into the script process, at least not yet.

For now there should be some rejoicing, as Reitman is clearly still the man for the job. As producer and director of the first two Ghostbusters films, he built an enduring franchise and delivered characters that are unarguably iconic. If speculation holds up and the cast returns, there’s no doubt that Ghostbusters 3 has a shot at fitting in perfectly with two already-classic comedies.
