Ghostbusters 3 is one of the most talked-about sequels-that-never-was. But now the sequel-that-never was is shaping up to 'was' (I'm a writer!).
With Bill Murray being very vocal about the fact that he wold not participate in a new Ghostbusters unless it was done really well (and the script he read, well, wasn't), Sony Pictures has hired Etan Cohen to rewrite the script.
Cohen, who wrote for Mike Judge's shows Beavis and Butt-head and King of the Hill, has also written some big films in recent years, including Men In Black 3 and Tropic Thunder. With so much comedy experience, as evidenced by all the hilarious Tropic Thunder quotes, and some comedy sci-fi experience, Cohen figures to be a great choice of writer.
The only question remaining is whether or not the script will be up to Murray's standards. While Murray would be sorely missed if he were to not participate, I have to say that I respect the man for not wanting to take part in ruining a beloved franchise. Hopefully, though, everything can be worked out, Murray will star, and the film will be great!
