Sony is restarting one of its most famed franchises. The studio will be remaking Ghostbusters, the immensely popular comedy from 1984. Writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, known for penning and producing TV laughfest The Office, have been hired to write the script. Some of the original cast members, such as famed comedian Bill Murray, may or may not be involved in the remake, but for the most part, this film will employ an entirely new cast.
The original film was one of the most profitable in Sony's storied history, having grossed over $292 million worldwide. The 1989 sequel raked in $215 million worldwide.
