Aykroyd hoping on GB3 Fall production, wants female GB
Dan Aykroyd has been in front of the press a lot the last couple of days and as always is talking about Ghostbusters 3. He remains hopeful that a third film can go into production as early as this Fall. He also says that Sigourney Weaver is on-board. He then spends a lot of time dismissing misconceptions about Bill Murray and another sequel.
“I don’t put not making the third movie on Billy. We can’t do that. I’ve been very busy. Harold’s been busy, Ivan’s been busy. And a third script really didn’t coalesce properly. And Billy, you can’t blame an artist for not wanting to do the same thing again. He did two of them, for God’s sake. Although I’m the biggest cheerleader as the originator of the concept but I’ve never begrudged Billy not doing a third movie. I never said he held it up or that he refused. Hey, listen, he’s an artist. You can’t force somebody into it. I’m sorry he never read my third draft because I thought it was pretty good but, look, now we’re at a point that there’s a story that he can accept and that’s going to work, and I think we’re going to be in production fairly soon. We could be in production by winter
I’ve read the first draft and knew there was a second draft, but I wasn’t aware there was a third out there.
Also, Aykroyd talks about getting some ladies into uniform, Allisa Milano and Eliza “Buffy, Dollhouse” Dushku;
“I think they’re amazing,” he said. “And I’m excited about the whole idea of getting this done.”
