Speaking to Heeb, writer/director/Ghostbuster Harold Ramis spoke briefly about the status of Ghostbusters 3, revealing it's on course to start shooting next summer:

HEEB: Here comes the Ghostbusters question: What’s up with part three?

RAMIS: Something’s going to happen. Dan [Aykroyd] did write a spec GB3 screenplay a few years ago, but no one was motivated to pursue it. Now, 25 years after the original, there seems to be some willingness to proceed and apparently a substantial public appetite for a sequel. We’ll introduce some new young Ghostbusters, and all the old guys will be in it, too. Think Christopher Lloyd in Back to the Future ... GB3 is progressing with plans to shoot next summer and release in 2011 … Oh, and I have two one-of-a-kind Ghostbuster yarmulkes sent by fans.

So there you have it: that sequel they've been talking about shooting soon is going to be shot soon. And yes, it is such a pathetically slow week in the world of movie things that Egon saying a movie will come out in two years counts as newsworthy.

So... what's everyone planning to do with the next couple years until then?
