Harold Ramis Confirms GB3?

The Chicago Tribune ran a story today saying that Harold Ramis confirmed to them that two of The Office writers Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg. It came via email from Ramis. The entire email can be read below:
yes, columbia is developing a script for GB3 with my year one writing partners, gene stupnitsky and lee eisenberg. judd apatow is co-producing year one and has made several other films for sony, so of course the studio is hoping to tap into some of the same acting talent. aykroyd, ivan reitman and i are consulting at this point, and according to dan, bill murray is willing to be involved on some level. he did record his dialogue for the new ghostbusters video game, as did danny and i, and ernie hudson. the concept is that the old ghostbusters would appear in the film in some mentor capacity. not much else to say at this point. everyone is confident a decent script can be written and i guess we'll take it from there.
Year One is a movie written and directed by Ramis. It sounds like what I said yesterday is the path the script may take: the originals will train the newbies. This is the first of many steps to finally get a third movie made. I'm crossing my fingers that this happens within the next 5 years.
