There are many long awaited film sequels in the works and Ghostbusters 3 in one of them. We’ve heard updates from various actors, producers, and even the director of the previous movies in regards to the status of the film. Co-star Dan Aykroyd recently spoke about the new movie Wednesday night on the radio show Coast to Coast AM with George Noory, and he gave listeners an earful.
Aykroyd told the host and the audience that Sony is very excited about the film, and screenwriters Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg are currently “hacking out a first draft.” For the most part, Ghostbusters 3 has been a dream project for fans everywhere. They want a reunion and it seemed like a far fetched idea for a very long time. Even Akyroyd admitted that the third movie is a lot closer to reality than he could have imagined.
The actor didn’t go on to clarify any other details regarding the film from that point on, but he does leave a little hope. Other rumors that have been circling the film have to do with the reluctance of certain actors returning. For the most part, Bill Murray has been pointed out as the original “buster” who doesn’t want to put on his overalls. Not to be mean, but he doesn’t want to commit to anything because a script hasn’t been nailed down yet. The last time I checked, that wasn’t reluctance, that was common sense.
Once an official draft as been submitted for revision to the studio, then we can start hounding the cast and the director. Until then, everything is just talk.
What do you think about a third Ghostbusters? Do you want to see another installment in the series?
