Etan Cohen Is the Man Who Will Make 'Ghostbusters 3' the Critical Darling and Box-Office Megahit We Know It Must Be

Joining new Community showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port on the shortlist of comedy writers taking high-profile jobs that have them facing seemingly insurmountable obstacles right off the bat is Men in Black 3/Tropic Thunder screenwriter Etan Cohen, who's been hired to take over writing duties on Ghostbusters 3 from Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. Maybe he will be able to crack this uncrackable nut, crafting the perfect script that gets Bill Murray on board, lives up to the original, and satisfies even the most internet-inflamed fanboy. Or it'll be another few years of rumors and infighting that'll result in either a cancelled project or a total disaster of a movie. We'll see! Good luck, Etan!

    Welp, Etan Cohen is the guy that got Men in Black 3 greenlit, so at least this probably means we'll eventually have an end to the rumors of it being made, though there'll only be a short respite before we have the "Ghostbusters 3 ruined Ghostbusters forever!" discussion in full force.
