Anyway you slice it, reboots usually invoke some kind of wrath from fans. Whether it be the new stab at a popular film glossing over what made the original flick so popular in the first place, or the final product being a soulless exercise in futility, there’s plenty to complain about. For me, that’s giving a reboot to the wrong director. And as far as Ghostbusters go, that’s one of my holy grail movies. Hopefully, the addition of Chris Milelr and Phil Lord can result in a remake being substantially more…awesome.
The Lego Movie directors are currently being scouted by Sony to take over and helm the third Ghostbusters movie, following the death of original paranormal exterminator Harol Ramis. With Ivan Reitman stepping down, production has really picked up on the movie. Honestly, I’d love to see Lord and Miller helm a third trip back to New York.
A new Ghostbusters movie is inevitable, so why hand it off to an inexperienced director and crew? Miller and Lord have done some damn good work over the last couple of years, with movies such as Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street doing solid business at the box office.
The duo clearly know their subject matter, and The Lego Movie is being hailed as one of the best films of 2014. Who ya gonna call then for Ghostbusters 3? These guys! Sony wants to start production next year on Ghostbusters 3, which will focus on a new generation of phantom hunters.
