Internet buzz to the contrary, Judd Apatow will not be involved in Ghostbusters 3. According to the LA Times‘ Patrick Goldstein, who himself believed the hype, it was mostly wishful thinking. And it made sense; Apatow is, after all, the Ivan Reitman of his generation. “Sony recently hired the writing team of Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (best known for their work on The Office) to tackle a new script,” writes Goldstein. “As it turns out, most of the original films’ creative team are involved as informal consultants on the new project, which would have the original Ghostbusters passing the torch to a new generation.” Blog confusion concerning Apatow and Ghostbusters 3 may have occurred also because Apatow is producing the Stupnitsky-Eisenberg project, The Year One, a comedy directed by Harold Ramis being released by Sony in June.
