Ghostbusters III has been the speculation of speculation for years, but with one tweet, Feig made fans of the beloved franchise happy.

A third film has been rumored since 2002 when IGN reviewed a 1999 screenplay reportedly penned by original Ghostbuster Dan Aykroyd.

The death of Harold Ramis earlier this year led to director Ivan Reitman backing out.
