Get out your proton packs and dust off your giant marshmallow costumes, "Ghostbusters III," another follow-up to the 1984 sci-fi comedy, is coming in 2012, according to the Internet Movie Database.

Rumor has it Anna Farris, of the "Scary Movie" series, will appear in the third installment of the classic film. It is also rumored that Sigourney Weaver, who played Dana Barrett in the original "Ghostbusters," may be involved in the remake.

Very little is known about the plot of the third film, but's promo says the Ghostbusters will hand over the reins "to the next generation."

And the official Ghostbusters Facebook page isn't giving anything away either. There was no mention of "Ghostbusters III" yesterday, when the Facebook page announced that the original "Ghostbusters" film would be re-released in theaters this October -- just in time for Halloween. The original film grossed $280 million worldwide and starred Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis.

There was no word on a re-release date for the original, but sources told they expect it will be a nationwide release, possibly in enhanced digital format.

So whether with a third installment or the classic movie, one thing is certain: "Ghostbusters" fans will soon enough get their fix of the paranormal fighting team.
