It has been reported that Bill Hader was one of the actors considered for a role in Ghostbusters 3 by Sony. Even Dan Aykroyd had confirmed that Hader was one of the actors being considered.
The Playlist recently spoke with Hader and here is what he had to say,
“I heard about it the same way you guys did! I went online and was like, woah! Cool! All my friends were calling, ‘are you gonna be in Ghostbusters 3?’ I obviously am very flattered, but I don’t know anything about it.”
Looks as though even though Hader may be in consideration for the role , but that a formal invitation has not been made. That does not mean that he may not end up starring, it just means that talks have not yet begun.
Hader will next be seen alongside Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in Paul. He also is currently working on a script for a project titled House of Joel, with SNL writer Simon Rich which will be produced by Judd Apatow. The film will star Hader as a slacker named Joel who is pursued by a mysterious psychopath. This project has been in the works since 2009 and is still going strong.
Hader had this to say about the project,
“We’re working on a new draft with Jason Woliner, from The Human Giant. Judd is very much a believer in it and we’re just having fun. I just talked to Judd about it last night.”
I would be happy to see Hader in a role in the next Ghostbusters and think Joel sounds like a cool project. What are your thoughts?
