Ivan Reitman on Ghostbusters 3: “It’s now official and everybody’s in it!”

Di Gabriele Niola

reitman conferenza
Ivan Reitman has spoken: Ghostbuster 3 is on it’s way.
“For the first time” said the director and producer of the first two movies “possibilities are more positive than negative. Before we needed some twist to be able to make it, now if there isn’t any other major change we will do it”.

Rumors that were circulating for long finally got confirmation in Sitges, the fantasy festival that takes place in the omonymous spanish village near Barcelona since 1967. In this same festival Reitman won an award for his first movie, Cannibal Girls, and here this year he’s going to receive an honorary award, so as it is natural here he made this announcement.

It took so long to come to a decision about the new Ghostbusters because all the rights holders were able to say their word on the plot, and they’re a lot! “It’s never easy to bring all these people to an agreement on something” says the director, but now there’s a script, a definitive one, complete and approved.

Not only the long awaited sequel is coming, all the original cast will be in it: “The project needs the presence of everyone” including Sigourney Weaver?? “Including Sigourney Weaver!” confirms Reitman.
Not even a word can be said on the plot: “I will never tell you what’s like”, but surely Ivan Reitman will direct once again and for sure the story won’t be the same as the new videogame. Reitman got nothing to do with its development apart for the final approval (which came easily), but anyway the game (which an heavily involved in the production Dan Aykroyd some moths ago called “the third Ghostbusters’ movie”) had optimus influence on the final green light for Ghostbusters 3: “[The videogame’s] big success convinced many of the people involved in the production that there’s still engagement with ghosts busting”.

We won’t know the plot but at least will it be similar to the past two or not? “The second movie was some kind of exploitation of the first but was too heavily based on special effects, in that way losing grip on what were the driving forces of the first: characters and jokes. This is something I still regret and now I’d like to pay tribute to those wonderful characters with this new one”.

In the end there’s still time for Be Kind Rewind and its sweded Ghostbusters: “I’ve seen it, and appreciated the sentiment, but definetly didn’t like it. And I know this is going to disappoint a lot of people”.
In the last rows of the press room there was also Ruben Fleischer, director of Zombieland (which has a lot of inside jokes about Ghostbusters and even some footage from the original films), when the conference was over he asked mr. Reitman for a picture.
