Well if you read our Five Ways to Make a Cool Ghostbusters Sequel -- and agreed with our take -- then you'll be happy to know that two of our wishes may soon come true. In an email to the Chicago Tribune, Harold Ramis confirmed all this brand new Ghostbusters 3 talk, and added a few other interesting nuggets of info. Check it out:

"yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my year one writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. judd apatow is co-producing year one and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. not much else to say at this point. everyone is confident a decent script can be written and i guess we'll take it from there."

So for those who wanted the original stars to be involved, this does sound like good news -- except you're going to have to deal with the fact that they'll appear more as mentors and torch passers than anything else, which I'm personally fine with. And whether you like it or not, Apatow and his clan will probably be involved. Again, I think this is a good move ... but surprisingly most of you thought otherwise. We shall have fun debating this one for a good while, huh?
