The Lego Movie filmmakers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are in talks to replace Ivan Reitman as the directors of Ghostbusters 3.
Reitman, who directed the two original films and helped co-write the script for the latest project, has dropped out the movie following franchise star Harold Ramis's death in February.
The 67-year-old will stay on as a producer for the film, which is expected to start shooting early in 2015.
Sony movie studio executives have declined to comment on the news, according to TheWrap.com.
Original Ghostbusters star Dan Aykroyd is slated to return for the sequel, but his co-star Bill Murray is not.
