Ghostbusters 3 shoot delayed

Just when it looked like the wheels were back on the long-planned Ghostbusters 3, another delay hits the project...

Well, after a long period where it looked like Ghostbusters 3 was never going to happen, a few weeks ago the project suddenly jolted back into life. The movie was set to shoot next summer, Bill Murray wasn't returning, but pretty much everyone else - including director Ivan Reitman - was.

However, Sony has apparently now delayed a decision on when to press ahead with the film until next March, which presumably ties into the end of its financial reporting period. After all, the Sony parent company hasn't been having the best of times, and rumours suggest that there's pressure to trim costs.

The delay in formally greenlighting Ghostbusters 3 - and we still think the film is coming now, given the development expense Sony has incurred - means that the planned summer start date can't now happen. Assuming everything falls into place next March, it looks like Ghostbusters 3 will shoot this time next year.
