Lee Eisenberg, who is co-writing the Ghostbusters 3 script with Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd, is returning to his alma matter, Connecticut College to kick of a series of lectures, “Great Beginnings: Conversations with Alumni.” – while talking to The Day, Eisenberg had a few things to say about Ghostbusters 3, most in line with what we’ve heard thus far, but which we’ve rarely heard from either him or writing partner, Gene Stupnitsky directly.
“We’ve been working really closely with Ivan Reitman for a couple years on it. Dan Aykroyd has been really involved. Harold Ramis has been very involved – we’re sharing a story credit on it with him. Then we reworked the script. I mean, that script went through a lot of rewrites, and it kept getting, we think at least, tighter and funnier. It took a little bit to really understand the tone of a movie like ‘Ghostbusters.’ It’s really scary when you’re writing characters you grew up on. … The last thing you want to do is disappoint.
“Right now, we have a script we haven’t worked on probably in a couple of months, and we’re waiting for Bill Murray to read it. People seem excited about it, and the studio seems high on it. … We’re very proud of it. We worked really hard on it, and I think it’d be a really fun movie.”
