Reitman Receives New Draft for "Old School 2"

by | April 6, 2007 | Comments

"Old School 2" has been rumored ever since the first one became the new millennium’s first bona fide quotable movie by college kids. But as the costars became megastars, it kept not happening. Now producer Ivan Reitman has a new script he hopes will entice the gang back together.

"I have in my briefcase a new draft of the screenplay, I got last night," Reitman said over the weekend. "I haven’t read it yet. I’m going to read it on the plane. So yeah, we very much want to do it. We hope we can corral the entire cast because it was written by the same writers, will be directed by Todd Phillips as before."

Now that the boys have established their fraternity, what new trouble could they get into? "Well, it’s the three characters in a different situation," was all Reitman would reveal.

Don’t let the down time discourage you. Reitman has been known to pull famous gangs back together after long absences. "I think it certainly will be hard to get the cast together again because it always is. I remember before ‘Ghostbusters II,’ for much too long, I think seven years, every one of us including myself said, ‘The odds of a Ghostbusters II are nil. There’s no way we’re ever going to get the cast together.’ Bill Murray kept continuously saying he wasn’t going to do it again. But somehow he came out. So who knows?"

One thing is for sure, Reitman would never try to cast new young stars in the same roles. "I wouldn’t want to recast that. I think the strength of a movie like ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Old School’ is the charm of those people together."
