Dan Aykroyd Ain't Afraid of No Ghostbusters III
02.23.09 by REELZ
Stoners and geeks and inner children everywhere rejoice. Ghostbusters III may actually be happening. Talking cryptically on the subject to the Boston Globe while at a House of Blues opening (no comment), Dan Aykroyd said, "Script is commenced early summer. Hope to be in production by late fall 2009." Hmm...while that verb tense is vague, we'll take it to mean that a script is in the works. Here's what else we (kinda, sorta) know:
Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky of The Office are listed as writers, while old Ivan Reitman looks to be on to produce, per usual. Chances are decent that along with Aykroyd, Bill Murray would be on board, and perhaps Harold Ramis. Chances are less good that Sigourney Weaver would come back, and even less good that Rick Moranis would come out of hiding for the film. For certain, this year marks the 25th anniversary of the first film, and the release of a new video game based on it, so if ever there were a time for another, now would be good, at least for marketing reasons.
