Who you gonna call…GHOSTBUSTERS…err young Ghostbusters? :
Ramis promised that all the old core players will take part in the updated version, including Bill Murray (Dr. Peter Venkman) and Dan Aykroyd (Dr. Raymond Stantz), who co-wrote the original films. “We’re all going to be in it in different kinds of roles,” Ramis said. “We’re going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters.”
At the moment, Ramis is waiting on a first draft of the script, which is being penned by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, two writer/producers on “The Office,” who also wrote “Year One.” “Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new ‘Ghostbusters,’ ” Ramis said. “I’m consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd and [original director] Ivan Reitman.
“Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office,” Ramis joked.
Ghostbusters = one of the most underrated movies of all time. There, I said it.
It’ll be interesting to see what the writers from the office can do. You would think that their ability to write deadpan humor, in addition to the role that Ramis is playing in overseeing the script would produce a quality script. But I’ve seen way too many remarks and sequels to classic movies fail miserably. Ugh. FUCK YOU GEORGE LUCAS. I hate you with my whole life.
