who you gonna call?

Great news to end the day here at HeyUGuys central that Ivan Reitman has confirmed in a brief interview given with MTV that he will indeed be directing the third instalment of Ghostbusters. He managed to shy away from commenting on Sigourney Weaver’s comments at the Avatar junket where she claimed that *spoiler alert* Bill Murray’s character may be a ghost in this new movie *spoiler end* but did go on to confirm that he will be directing the next movie which is pleasant news to our ears.He also said that he’d like to start shooting next year (2011).

MTV: Reitman said that the script from “Year One” writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky is in and that a second draft is currently in the works. He also confirmed that he will indeed be returning to direct the coming sequel, as had been previously speculated.

“They have delivered a draft,” Reitman said of the script’s progress. “We are working our way through another draft… good work is being done and all of us have our fingers crossed.”

Reitman was all business again when the talk turned back to the schedule. “I hope to start shooting in this next year,” he said, giving weight to Ramis’ recent comments about a planned 2011 release.

Head over to MTV for more info where they have a video clip of the interview too.
