While it was recently confirmed that Ghostbusters 3 would start production this year, for a 2010 release, it still wasn't clear on who would direct the film... until now. MTV Movies Blog has confirmed that Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 director Ivan Reitman will complete the trilogy and direct Ghostbusters 3.
Asked if he would be returning to direct Ghostbusters 3, Reitman answered with a simple and unequivocal "Yes."
Reitman also revealed that the script by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg has recently been completed, but would not delve into specifics about the story.
"I'm not going to comment on what's in the script and on what Sigourney may or may not have said," he told us. "She's been so busy on Avatar, I've not been able to find her. There's some very cool things in the new draft, let's just put it that way."
