So There Is Another Ghostbusters Movie Being Written?!
I'm not sure whether to call this a complete rumor or not, because this isn't he first time I've heard something like this. E! Online (via SlashFilm) caught up with Dan Aykroyd during a promotion up in Toronto for his new line of wines and Patron tequila (no shit?) and questioned him about the Ghostbusters rumor. Aykroyd's answer actually sounds quite promising: "Two sharp young writers are purported to be writing the sequel, the third movie now. If I could interest Seth [Rogen] and Judd [Apatow] to be part of it, that would be an absolute dream." That would be an absolute dream for me too, Mr. Aykroyd. We already confirmed the return of a live-action TMNT this week, so why not Ghostbusters, too?! I just hope this isn't a drunk "Ray Stanz" spewing speculative madness...
What's interesting about this third Ghostbusters movie is that everyone seems to be pretty excited about it. I think it was the combination of the video game and early buzz about a sequel that actually made this a movie most would want to see. I think most people seem to instantly despise the return of beloved franchises like Ghostbusters, but for some odd reason I get very good feeling when I think about Dan Aykroyd and the boys coming back to bust more ghosts. This might just be the perfect time for the Ghostbusters to return from retirement and deal with some epic new impenetrable force anyway. I just hope that these two writers that Aykroyd has mentioned know what they're doing. How awesome is this new?!
