Dan Aykroyd Still Optimistic About GHOSTBUSTERS 3

I really want to see a Ghostbusters 3 and it continues to sound like Dan Aykroyd love to make that movie for me and everyone else out there. It’s just gotten to a point where I am starting to think that we are never going to though. But Aykroyd hasn’t lost his enthusiasm for the project, bless him.

Speaking with ABC News while out promoting his vodka label, Aykroyd once again offered up an update as to the status of the screenplay being written for the long-in-development project.

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.

Now we know that in the third film the original Ghostbusters are supposed to hand-off the business to a younger set of scientists-turned-paranormal extreminators, but this is the first time in which Aykroyd has hinted at what kind of menace the group may be facing.

Aykroyd also goes on to admit that the one cast member who has been the main obstacle in keeping the film from happening, Bill Murray, never did read the last screenplay draft that was sent over to him.

I don’t think he read it, because, you know what? If he’d read the second draft that I completely rewrote, he would be doing the movie. If he’d read that draft. The part I wrote for him.

So, will we see cameras rolling on Ghostbusters 3 come next January? I would love to, but right now I am not betting the rent on it.

I want to believe myself but I’ve lost hope on this awhile ago.
