“If we get a good script we’ll do it. I don’t think any of us feel we need to for our own careers or anything, but if people want to see it we’ll try to give it to them. But only if it’s good.”

He was then asked if you could foresee the movie going ahead:

“There’s a real script being written. We wrote a story – Ivan Reitman, Dan Aykroyd and I are consulting. (Bill) Murray said he’d do it. Ernie Hudson is in. Almost everyone said they’d be in. Rick Moranis has laid low in show business for the last few years.” Ramis ended by stating his intent for this third installment in the popular franchise. “It’s all about the quality. We don’t want to destroy a franchise that everyone loves with a bad sequel.”

Ghostbusters 3 is currently in the early production stages and has no definite filming date set.
