Jack Black desperate for role in new Ghostbusters sequelJune 17th, 2009 - 4:52 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Jun 17 (ANI): Comedian Jack Black has revealed that he would love to have a part in the new Ghostbusters sequel, and that he even lobbied original star Harold Ramis when they worked together on new movie ‘Year One’.
Ramis, 64, is preparing to reprise his role as Dr. Egon Spengler in the third Ghostbusters film, and he is also on the shortlist to direct the sequel.
Black, 39, who had been directed by Ramis in the comedy, says that he used his time with the director to campaign for the chance to hunt ghouls with him.
“Could I see myself in it? Yeah, I can bust some ghosts! I ain’t (sic) afraid of no ghosts! Buster,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Moviefone.
Ghostbusters III will star the original line-up of Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, as well as a new batch of younger spook chasers. (ANI)
