We haven't heard much about the highly-anticipated Ghostbusters 3 for quite some time, but now Bloody-Disgusting has uncovered some intriguing new information about the impending sequel. The site reports that Bill Murray's Peter Venkman was actually the father of Dana Barrett's (Sigourney Weaver) newborn son Oscar, who was introduced in Ghostbusters 2.
The site goes onto report that Oscar will be 21 years of age in this new film, and that he will be one of the younger crop of Ghostbusters that will take over the business from the original four characters, Venkman, Egon Spangler (Harold Ramis) Ray Stantz (Dan Aykroyd) and Winston Zeddmore (Ernie Hudson).
Bloody-Disgusting is also reporting that Rick Moranis is expected to come out of retirement to reprise his role of Louis Tully and that Sigourney Weaver is expected to return for Ghostbusters 3 as well. It was also reported that, "things are progressing nicely" on the sequel, although no production start date for the sci-fi comedy has been revealed.
