Ben Stiller is being lined up to star in a new 'Ghostbusters' movie.The comic actor is wanted by movie bosses to appear in the long-awaited third instalment of the popular '80s series by the film's director Harold Ramis. Ramis admits he is keen for Stiller to join Dan Aykroyd and Rick Moranis, who both starred in the original movies opposite Bill Murray, in the sequel 'Ghostbusters In Hell' because he is a "huge fan" of his work. Aykroyd is also writing the script for the film which will see the paranormal investigators transported to a parallel dimension from New York. Ramis revealed: "What Dan had originally conceived was sending the characters to a special effects hell - a netherworld of mad visual environments. But what worked so well about the first two films was how it was all so mundane"When the Ghostbusters step out of this portal, it looks just like New York but its hell. No cars are moving and all the drivers are swearing at each other in different foreign languages. All the worst things about modern urban life - just magnified"It is not yet known if Murray will reprise his role as Dr Peter Venkman in the new movie or whether Sigourney Weaver will appear again as his love interest, Dana Barrett.
