Anna Faris may play a young Ghostbuster in Ghostbusters 3
The notice revealed that casting is currently under way to find more of the younger replacement Ghostbusters for the sequel. We reported in October that Dan Aykroyd was writing the script, which would feature new Ghostbusters being mentored by the original members of the team. We also reported a few weeks ago that Ghostbusters 3 will start shooting in May 2011, which was confirmed by this casting notice. The movie will be released in December of 2012.
What's Playing reached out to Sony for confirmation on Anna Faris' involvement, and while their source couldn't confirm her casting, Saturday Night Live actors Will Forte and Bill Hader were mentioned as possible Ghostbusters 3 actors.
Regardless, the casting for Ghostbusters 3 is currently happening and we'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on this highly-anticipated project as soon as we have more information. You can to read the full casting call for Ghostbusters 3.
