Phil Lord & Chris Miller to Direct GHOSTBUSTERS 3

Lord-Miller-duo

Well, that escalated quickly! We recently found out that Ivan Reitman will no longer be directing the long-gestating Ghostbusters 3 and now the former Deadline editor Nikki Finke is reporting that directing duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller are being eyed for this directing gig.

 

It’s no surprise that Sony would like The LEGO Movie duo because everything Lord and Miller touches seems to turn to gold with Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs in 2009, 21 Jump Street in 2012 (a sequel release is later this year) and their most recent hit, The LEGO Movie, of course.

No doubt Sony Pictures is going to make it no matter what in order to facilitate an early 2015 shoot.

As we mentioned in our previous post, the storyline is rumored to focus on a new generation of Ghostbusters with cameos from the original stars written into the script.

How does this rumor hit?
