Ivan Reitman calling 'Ghostbusters 3'
Confirms he will direct; hopes to shoot it 'this next year'
Ivan Reitman, who directed the first two "Ghostbuster" movies in the '80s, is gearing up to direct the long-awaited third installment in the series.
Sony's Columbia Pictures has been developing a script by Lee Eisneberg and Gene Stupnitsky that would relaunch the franchise.
Reitman has been involved in developing the script as a producer and, earlier this week, said for the first time that he will serve as director as well.
Speaking with MTV's Josh Horowitz at the National Board of Review Awards in New York -- where "Up in the Air," on which he served as a producer, picked up a best film award -- Reitman confirmed he would direct and said, "I hope to start shooting it this next year."
