Bad news for those hoping “The LEGO Movie” directors Phil Lord And Chris Miller would be directing “Ghostbusters 3” as previously reported.
Columnist Jeff Sneider said the pair have allegedly turned down the project: “Hearing LORD & MILLER ended up walking away from GHOSTBUSTERS 3 job. They were the studio’s choice but wanted to keep their options open.”
This doesn’t necessarily preclude them from the gig – there’s a little thing known as “negotiating in the press” after all. The pair are in such demand they have no shortage of other projects they could work on, so they can easily afford to play ‘hardball’ as it were.
