Ghostbusters 3 Is Still Happening, Dan Aykroyd Working On the Script
There has been a lot of talk of this Ghostbusters 3 movie that’s in the works, something that I’m not so sure is a great idea. And neither is Bill Murray, based on interviews he’s given. But that won’t stop ’em from making it! Apparently, the script is currently being revised by Dan Aykroyd. Here’s how he responds to questions about Bill Murray’s shit talking:
“I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two — Stupnitsky and Eisenberg — wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.”
I suppose I should keep an open mind about this thing, but man, the chances of it being any good are just so slim. Do we really need to tarnish the originals with this?
