Ghostbusters Sequel Coming in Video Game Form, Original Cast and Writers Heavily Involved

By Chris Faylor, Nov 14, 2007 11:28am PST The latest entry in the Ghostbusters franchise will be arriving in the form of a video game for PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii.

Writing duties for the title are being handled by Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, and Bill Murray. All three starred in the first two films, which were written by Ramis and Aykroyd. The trio will also lend their voices to the game, which is currently being developed by an unknown studio. The project was unveiled through Game Informer's teasings of its next issue.

Many consider Slovenia-based developer ZootFly a likely candidate for the game's developer. Earlier this year, the company leaked a number of prototype movies from an unlicensed Ghostbusters game that was in the works for Xbox 360.

However, ZootFly confirmed that it was no longer developing the Ghostbusters game in a recent interview with Gamer.TM, as another company purchased the license from Sony. That other company is said to be Universal, a tidbit Aykroyd accidentally revealed while talking to the Edmonton Sun.
