Oh, the rumor-mill. Just when we thought that we’d received a break from all of the cross-talk around Ghostbusters 3, our friends at Bloody-Disgusting go and start it up again.

BD is reporting today that they have confirmed, “without a shadow of a doubt,” that Ivan Reitman is attached to the project as the director. Reitman directed both Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2, and has long been the most pivotal piece in the development of a third film. The report also adds that while Reitman is currently attached, he has not yet decided whether or not he really wants to direct it. Sounds a little loose, but it’s interesting nonetheless. It stands to reason that fans would love to see Reitman back behind the camera for another Ghostbusters. I know I would.

Bloody-Disgusting also uncovered a bit of the third film’s story:

Apparently, the sequel takes place when the paranormal researchers “reopen” their ghost removal service after it has been closed for quite a few years.

As generic as this sounds, it sounds a lot better than some of the other previously reported storylines sounded. Even with this bit of story though, there is a chance that there will be the mentoring storyline that Harold Ramis has mentioned several times in the past, in which the old Ghostbusters teach a new generation how to not be afraid of no ghost. No matter what the case, it appears as if things are moving — good news for those of us who would like to see a third Ghostbusters movie, and like to see it with the original cast.
