New 'Ghostbusters' Movie In The Works At Columbia

Columbia Pictures has recruited 'The Office' writer-producers to work on a new installment of the 1980s 'Ghostbusters' franchise.

"The Office" co-executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky have been signed on to write a script for the film.

It doesn't sound like the original cast of Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson and Harold Ramis will star in the film. However, it's reported that some original cast members will definitely be involved, but not in central roles.

Coincidentally, the 'Office' pair just wrote wrote 'Year One', a comedy that was directed by Ramis. Ramis and Aykroyd wrote the first two installments of the films, and Aykroyd has always expressed an interested in returning for another 'Ghostbusters' movie, so there is a good likelihood the two will return in some capacity.

It's only once the script is ready that Columbia will approach actors for the movie, and that's when we'll have a much better idea of who will be involved with the project.

'Ghostbusters' was Sony's top-grossing film until it was surpassed by 'Men in Black', which was recently outpaced by the 'Spider-Man' films.
