Ghostbusters' 'third film' will be computer game

Artari to launch game on five platforms in 2009

Eighties classic film Ghostbusters is being turned into a computer game thanks to Atari.

Atari said the cult classic - which will be available for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo Wii, PlayStation 3 (PS3), PlayStation 2 (PS2), and Xbox 360 - will be launched during 2009. A PC version is also planned.

Written by the original Ghostbusters writers, Harold Ramis and Dan Aykroyd and featuring voice work from the original cast, including both Aykroyd and Ramis, Bill Murray, Ernie Hudson, and Annie Potts, 'Ghostbusters: The Video Game' picks up two years after the last film.

Aykroyd has said he considers the game to be the franchise's 'third film'. Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II - originally released in 1984 and 1989 - will also be made available on Blu-ray for the first time next year.

"Ghostbusters: The Video Game is a fantastic addition to Atari's global line-up in 2009," said Atari president Phil Harrison. "The title has built considerable anticipation and excitement among game fans."
