The Supernatural Convergence of Judd Apatow, The Office, and Ghostbusters 3.

The fact that Ghostbusters is one of my favorite movies ever has previously caused me to get kind of rabid about the possibility of anything new and shiny and ghostbuster-y. Up until a week or so ago, any such developments were limited to the videogame (which is currently languishing in a weird sort of limbo). But now it looks like there's a possibility of a brand spankin' new Ghostbusters movie--one headed up by the original Ghostbusters creative team, along with two writers of the Americanized The Office and Judd Apatow. Not a bad crew, that.

If it actually happens--and this is something that seems fairly unlikely, given the previous bungled attempts to get a third film made--it sounds like this'll be kind of like Ghostbusters: The Next Generation, with the original crew handing over the franchise to a new cast, one possibly made up of Apatow's usual gang. I kind of have mixed feelings about that--on one hand, the Apatow gang is pretty great, but on the other, I'd also like to avoid seeing the original Ghostbusters cast contract a nasty case of Mutt Williams Syndrome.

Anyway: More at the Chicago Tribune. This via io9, which also points out that Sarah Palin is a robot.
