Movies: Apatow is Afraid of Ghosts

Rumors were that Judd Apatow would even be producing a third Ghostbusters flick. But Sony's Doug Belgrad, president of Columbia Pictures released this statement to the LA Times. "We have some great new writers working on a new script, but Judd isn’t involved. Judging from the frenzy on the Internet, there still seems to be plenty of interest in the idea of doing another film, so we’re certainly taking that as a good sign." The word is that those writers are "The Office" scribes Lee Eisenberg and Greg Stupnitsky.

I don't know how to make head's or tails of this Ghostbusters 3 scenario. On one hand I don't want them to touch such a sacred property but on the other I wouldn't mind seeing the likes of Seth Rogen, Jason Segal, Jonah Hill, Paul Rudd and others take a crack at it. I'm just glad we've moved past the days of Ben Stiller being a candidate.
