Ruben Fleischer linked with directing Ghostbusters 3

The director of Zombieland, Ruben Fleischer, is one of the candidates to helm Ghostbusters 3 it seems...

For the past few days, director Ruben Fleischer - best known for the likes of Zombieland and Gangster Squad - will have seen his name plastered all over the internet as one of the candidates to direct Marvel's Ant-Man movie. His name has been on the shortlist for the film since Edgar Wright departed that project. Yet, as it turns out, it's his links to another movie that may temper his Ant-Man chances.

For Fleischer is on Sony's radar as the potential director of Ghostbusters 3. The Wrap reports the news, noting that Fleischer has recently become a father too, which may yet mean that he doesn't take the project on. However, he's clearly one of the candidates Sony is considering, having already directed both Zombieland and 30 Minutes Or Less for the studio.

The plan is still likely to be to get Ghostbusters 3 in front of the cameras by early next year, so an announcement may not be far away.

Not a bad choice, but I have a better one... DON'T get a director, DON'T make a Ghostbusters III, and let us have one classic movie to enjoy and and only one sequel to ignore.

You say 3. I hear the words reboot...
Please no

Nope, please let this franchise rest in peace

Oh great! So Spengler re-cast with Jesse Eisenberg, yeah?

Some films really need to be left alone.

I would actually prefer them to just 'remake' or 'reboot' this franchise rather than make a direct sequel.

At least that way I won't be disappointed when it turns out to be complete s**t.

I really liked the sequel and still do. Although, I was 8 when it came out, so maybe age has a huge part to play. I love it down to nostalgia now.

I remember that painting scaring the crap out of me as a kid though!

I think he would do a good job.

A lot of people don't mind the sequel, but I can't stand it. Even Dan Aykroyd admitted that no one wanted to do it, but they had a contract and were obligated.

The humor wasn't funny, the plot was absurd in the worst way, the actors obviously didn't want to be there...

Every time I read an article on this subject, I lose a bit more of my will to live.

For the love of everything sacred, leave this alone. Harold Ramis has passed on, Bill Murray wants nothing to do with it.....take a leaf out of his book. If you want a Ghostbusters fix, stick on the original!

Somebody get Walter Peck to shut this off.
