Lord & Miller Turn Down Ghostbusters 3

By bill - April 9, 2014

ghostbusters-featThe dynamic duo behind The Lego Movie and 21 Jump Street pass on the new Ghostbusters project.

Ghostbusters 3 didn’t have much in its corner, as far as I’m concerned.  But the rumor that Chris Miller and Phil Lord might have been attached was one shining star amongst a sea of bad-sounding ideas.  Not only are these two great with comedy and characters, they have a track record of making awful sounding films into something truly special.

Whether or not they could have done the same for the much-maligned third Ghostbusters movie… we’ll likely never know.  But I’ll say this– without them on board, I am back to approaching zero excitement for this sequel/ reboot/ whatever.  And if it’s true they looked at it and declined, well, I don’t think I want to know how lousy the project is looking so far.

This news came from Jeff Sneider at the Wrap, who posted it recently on Twitter:
