Is it that time of year again? Seems every year they’re talk of the Ghostbusters bustin (to make you feel good) again onto cinema screens. However, this did comes straight from the mouth of Dr. Raymond Stantz himself. To promote the new House of Blues in Boston, Dan Aykroyd was answering questions online for the Boston Globe when of course, the Ghostbusters question comes up.
[Comment From Tom] Dan, I’m extremely excited for the HOB to be back in its birth-city!! I will be attending many shows. On a side note, and I’m sure you get these questions a lot, so I apologize in advanceâ€¦ Ghostbusters 3? I’ve heard that the writers of the Office are currently penning a script? How is this coming along, and should we look forward to this movie seeing the light of day? Thanks Dan!
Dan Aykroyd: “Script is commenced early summer. Hope to be in production by late fall 2009.”
So, there you have it. Script is being written, with hopes of production… I’m sure we’ve been at this point with Dan’s Ghostbusters: Hell Bent/Ghostbusters Go To Hell script already…
However, Bill Murray (who was a bit of a stumbling block) has been saying he enjoyed his time getting back into Pete Venkman’s character during the voice work on Ghostbusters the Video Game, so they maybe able to tempt him back for one more evening’s ghostbusting… The interest in Ghostbusters the Video Game i think also helped prove there is an audience out there. Only time will tell!
