Ghostbusters 3 to shoot next year? Well Dan Aykroyd thinks so.

April 24th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Just when I finally was at peace with never seeing Ghostbusters 3, Dan Aykroyd has to freaking start talking again! He believes this movie is actually going to happen, and in a recent interview with ABC News he says that he thinks the it will start shooting by next year. (what?) Here’s what he had to say:

“I feel re-encouraged, reinvigorated by the pages that I have seen. I know that we’re expecting half of the screenplay to be completed very soon. It should be into production by the fall and be shooting by the new year. I won’t say anything, it’s very exciting. The Higgs boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible come through.

We’re going to really put it into ninth gear, in this third one. It’s going to be very, very exciting. I’ve been more encouraged than I ever have been. It sounds real now. We’ve got a sharp new writer on it, Ivan (Reitman) is on it, Harold (Ramis) is on it, I’m on it. And if I can put the catch-net on Billy [Murray] and bring him in, it will be wonderful, if he decides to do it. There will always be a hole for him.”

It’s cool that he hasn’t given up on trying to get Bill Murray on board, but maybe they should  just leave it be. It’s still hard for me to imagine that this movie will ever actually get made. What do you guys think?
