We’ve already said “the universe does NOT want this Ghostbusters reboot to happen”. Today we bring you more evidence of that, Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (directors of 21 Jump Street, Lego Movie), are no longer on board to direct the third film in the franchise.
The duo took the helm when Ivan Reitman left, following the death of long time friend/Ghostbuster Harold Ramis. Columbia Pictures is currently searching for yet another director, horror fans are crossing their fingers.
Harold Ramis, the Chicago comedic writer, director and actor whose films “Stripes,” “Caddyshack,” “Animal House,” “Groundhog Day” and “Ghostbusters” are among the most beloved — and successful — of all time, has died. He was 69.
Ramis died overnight of complications from auto-immune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that causes swelling of the blood vessels. He passed away peacefully, surrounded by family and friends at his Chicago-area home, where he returned to live in 1996 after 20 years in Los Angeles.
Despite Ramis’ passing, it looks like Ghostbusters 3 will go on without him.
