Columbia Pictures is getting serious about scaring up a new installment of its blockbuster “Ghostbusters” franchise.
The studio has set “The Office” co-exec producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky to write a script for a film designed to bring back together the original cast of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson.
An Emmy-nominated writer of one of my favorite episodes of The Office Season 4, ‘Dinner Party.’ A rising star, according to Variety. One half of the famous Leo and Gino team, whose one riveting scene on the Season 2 DVD blooper reel isn’t nearly enough screen time. (Thank goodness for the Season 4 DVD!)
Happy Birthday, Gene! As Hunter would sing, “You make everything alright …”
I’ve just been told that ‘The Office’ writer Gene Stupnitsky will be accepting an award at the Chicago International Film Festival tonight, and a request is going out there to any Tallyheads that may be attending to film Gene’s award acceptance if possible.
Details are sketchy since it’s a bit last minute, but the award is called the “Silver Hugo” and is for “best television production.”
Thanks, Chicago Tallyheads! And congratulations, Gene!
