Dan Aykroyd Says GHOSTBUSTERS 3 Will Shoot Next Year
Here we are again! I've basically written off Ghostbusters 3, and I don't see it happening. They've been trying to make it for years, Billy Murray doesn't want to be a part of it, but Dan Aykroyd can't stop talking about it. He believes this movie is really going to happen, and in a recent interview with ABC News he says that he thinks the it will start shooting this summer. Here's what he had to say about where the project currently stands,
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.
I have to say that it's rad that they have implemented some new scientific discoveries into the story, and that he hasn't given up on trying to get Murray on board. Now as promising as this all sounds, it's still hard to imagine that this movie is actually going to be made. Are you still holding out hope?
