Egon Spengler himself, Mr Harold Ramis, has been talking about the upcoming Ghostbusters sequel…

As he begins the promotional tour for his upcoming comedy, Year One (which you can find the trailer for here), Harold Ramis has been dropping some titbits to MTV about the upcoming third Ghostbusters film.

The movie, which is being written by The Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitksy (who also wrote Year One for Ramis), will be bringing together "the old core players", and that means Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd will definitely be on board. Ramis is quoted as saying, "We're all going to be in it in different kinds of roles. We're going to be the sage mentors. There are going to be young Ghostbusters."

What the piece also seems to make clear is that original director Ivan Reitman won't be helming the new film, and that Ramis is unlikely to either.

Until a script is finalised, though, and all concerned are awaiting the first draft, there's not going to be much further news of Ghostbusters 3. That said, we expect some wheels in motion one way or another by the end of the year...
