Jonah Hill and Emma Stone Offered Roles in ‘Ghostbusters 3’

The actors could be playing two of the new Ghostbusters recruited by the original characters. It isn’t known if Sony has actually greenlit the sequel yet.

Jonah Hill and Emma Stone have reportedly been offered roles in the languishing sequel Ghostbusters 3, which could be an indication that Sony is finally ready to give the green light. You may recall a story from last February, where Jonah Hill sent out a picture of himself next to the Ghostbusters' vehicle, Ecto-1.

Although it isn't known if they plan on accepting, Jonah Hill was offered the role of Jeremy, with Emma Stone offered a character named Anna. The story has long been believed to center on a new crop of Ghostbusters trained by Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis, and Ernie Hudson, so it's possible that Jonah Hill and Emma Stone could play these younger recruits, or the children of these original Ghostbusters.

Bill Murray still has no plans to return to the franchise, although Dan Aykroyd revealed in May that there would still be a role for him, if he changes his mind.

Ivan Reitman is attached to direct from a screenplay that was originally written by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg (Year One). Etan Cohen signed on to rewrite the script last year.

Ghostbusters comes to theaters July 22nd, 2016 and stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones, Kate McKinnon. The film is directed by Paul Feig.

    I only worry some cause when your are messing with a cult classic. It's a daring feet. I'm not oppose to this. But has got to be done right. And Emma would be a great choice. Jona Hill is good choice in my head tho. I would have to see how this all panned out. It could be a fresh take on such a classic. Or or another one to trie with the rest if the trash pile lolol

    Just when I had started to lose all of my f*cks about this movie, they go ahead and get this casting.. If it's locked in, I'll be forced to see it unfortunately.
