Get ready for the new daily show

WATCH: Dan Aykroyd confirmed he’s back for Ghostbusters 3… and he’s ‘hopeful’ Bill Murray is back too

On the most recent Joe Rogan Podcast (below) the legendary Dan Ackroyd sits down to chew the fat and after talking aliens, drugs and vodka he finally gets around to… Ghostbusters 3.

Now, the whole show is a great listen, but if you got to about 1:47 the new movie comes up. Now, Aykroyd says he still likes the reboots, once again saying ‘the ladies were great in that movie’ and adding that he should have been in the producer’s chair.

Then, he gets to the good stuff, revealing that “All” the original cast are back before correcting it to “most of”. He says that he himself is in it and when Rogan pushes him on the return of Bill Murray, Aykroyd smiles and says: “Well, we’re hopeful”.

Now, this is confirmation that Aykroyd himself is in the movie and, while it’s not confirmation, I think this is the first time Murray’s name has come up officially in connection to the movie.

And that’s all I have but now we have Weaver, Hudson and Aykroyd confirmed… that’ll do.

For now.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
