Ghostbusters 3: "Still Working On it" Says Director Ivan Reitman

I believe the last we heard about a "Ghostbusters 3" was that it was in the works and was said to possibly be a "pass the torch" movie in that it would feature new characters that would go on to star in their own Ghostbusters movies.

Actually, a lot has been said about "Ghostbusters 3,": from Bill Murray appearing as a ghost, to Bill Murray throwing the script in the trash, to Bill Murray not appearing at all, which led to the above.

Now the latest comes from director Ivan Reitman, who in an interview with The Collider, mentioned "Ghostbusters 3," and from the sounds of it, the movie is still up in the air, but not totally out of the picture.

"I think Ghostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see," Reitman said.

That does sound like good news - "we're working on it" - so all hope for a "Ghostbusters 3" is not lost.

Still, with "Ghostbusters 3" not looking like Bill Murray is going to show and the movie being a reboot, could it be any good?

Currently, the paranormal genre is seeing a surge in popularity, with the recent found-footage movies as well as the popular paranormal series on SyFy and a couple upcoming on AMC.

Any chance the new Ghostbusters could be a bit more serious?

Or would that detract from the original too much leading to huge audience let down?
