Ivan Reitman Might Bust On The Chinese Before Busting Ghosts
He's got his eye on the memoir Big In China:My Unlikely Adventure Raising a Family, Playing the Blues and Reinventing Myself in Beijing. The story by journalist Alan Paul tells of how he moved to China to become a stay-at-home dad while his wife took a position as The Wall Street Journal China bureau chief. One day while tooling around China, he started a blues quartet called Woodi Paul and became a national sensation. Well, he's not the only lucky one. Did I mention how I found ten dollars a few months ago? Totally did. Right there on the floor of the free clinic. No further questions.
Reitman won't sign on to direct until a script is in place and if that process is anything like the Ghostbusters 3 scripting process, we'll all be under Chinese rule by the time he joins. Get ready to have to listen to Woodie Paul music. (THR)
