While doing press for the Blu-ray release of his film Dave, director Ivan Reitman shared his opinions about the long-rumored third Ghostbusters movie and the recently announced sequel to Twins.
Reitman told Collider that he’d prefer to “go forward and make new things” instead of producing a Ghostbusters sequel. “I think Ghostbusters probably should be remade, if we can get it all right. We’re working on it, so we’ll see,” said Reitman. “I was literally just having this conversation with the head of a studio for lunch today, and they were concerned that we’re killing the business by remaking the same thing.”
Also, Reitman is very skeptical about the Twins sequel, Triplets, which is rumored to star Arnold Schwarzenegger, Danny DeVito and Eddie Murphy. He admits to being “quite nervous” about the prospect and notes that the project currently has no writer. “I think it’s somebody’s commercial idea, and usually that’s a scary thought,” said Retiman. “I think that was more of a press release than anything.”
