Update: Ghostbusters 3 *May* Begin Filming in Cleveland in 2014

[This post contains updates]

The film industry is booming in Cleveland.

This summer's shooting of "Captain America: Winter Soldier" was exciting to say the least. Parts of the city were shut down to film wild explosions and stunts, and A-list celebrities were spotted all over town.

The trend continues, with filming of "Jenny's Wedding," starring Katherine Heigl, currently underway. And, according to WKYC, Cleveland is in for a treat in the spring of 2014.

The next installment in the classic "Ghostbusters" franchise is scheduled to may begin filming right here in Cleveland this spring.

[Earlier this morning, WKYC reported that Cleveland had been named filming headquarters for the latest Ghostbusters installment, yet the Cleveland Film Commission and Sony have since declined to comment.

In May, however, actor Dan Aykroyd did tell ShortList.com that he and director Ivan Reitman would be meeting in Cleveland in June to discuss the movie, NewsNet5 reports.

“I’m going to be meeting Ivan on June 7 in Cleveland, which is exciting as it’s been on and off for a few years but we’re really looking at a solid script now," Aykroyd said.

It's still unclear whether this meeting means the film will definitely be using Cleveland as its backdrop.]

The Huffington Post reports that high caliber celebrities are being sought after for roles in "Ghostbusters 3." Hollywood darling Emma Stone and comedy king Jonah Hill are rumored to be top choices for roles. 

Cleveland is becoming a top destination for the entertainment industry, which is good for star-spotting and great for the economy. It will also be awesome to see who makes it into the movie with a cameo in "Ghostbusters 3...."
