Sony Pictures, the studio behind the yet-to-be-titled Ghostbusters 3, is in final negotiations to procure Paul Rudd for its cast, reports Variety. Should said negotiations pan out (as seemingly likely), Rudd would prospectively play a character who is – ambiguously – described as “a teacher.” For now, it remains to be seen if the film will see Rudd strap on a proton pack and discover if – as Ray Parker Jr. famously sung – bustin’ makes him feel good.
Rudd’s part in the film is thought to be that of a teacher character. The new movie is a direct sequel to Ghostbusters 2 though it will take place in present-day. The film will feature a whole new crew of teenage busters, including Finn Wolfhard of Stranger Things. And, according to an interview published this month, Sigourney Weaver will return as Dana Barret, along with surviving busters, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray, and possibly, Ernie Hudson.
Ghostbusters 3 (title to be revealed) is currently scheduled to arrive at cinemas on July 10, 2020.
