Dan Aykroyd says Ghostbusters 3 will start filming next year. Should we believe him?

Ghostbusters

You'd think that since I'm still pretty new at JoBlo that writing an update on GHOSTBUSTERS 3 wouldn't be that annoying since I haven't had to type up dozens of articles any time Dan Aykroyd, Ivan Reitman or Harold Ramis even mentions the word "ghost" in sentence but it is. If the film happens of course I'll go see it but until there's news along the lines of, "Here's a picture of us filming it RIGHT NOW and here's the money we need so we are financial set to make this movie!" I refuse to get my hopes up or believe someone when they say that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is going to start production soon.

The "someone" this time is Dan Aykroyd and he's as optimistic as ever that GHOSTBUSTERS 3 is really, truly going to happen. Last time we heard from Aykroyd he said they were in a good place with the script and were even looking into making a fourth film if the third one is a success. The actor talked to ABC News and apparently that screenplay has been overhauled and he feels "reinvigorated" by the new one. Aykroyd also gave an update on where they are with the new script and when filming should start:

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.

Dan Aykroyd of course won't spill too much of the plot for GHOSTBUSTERS 3 but did say:

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 coming through.

A GHOSTBUSTERS 3 article wouldn't be complete without an update on Bill Murray's involvement with the film and Dan Aykroyd is still hopeful that Murray will return.

It will be wonderful, if he decides to do it. There will always be a hole for him.

So there's your latest GHOSTBUSTERS 3 update. I'm sure in a couple of months we'll have news that it'll start filming by February of next year. Then it'll be summer 2014. Then I'll die of old age and haunt the shit out of each and every one of them. EVENT HORIZON style.

Extra Tidbit: GHOSTBUSTERS 3 to me has become the film version of Duke Nukem Forever. Hopefully the film (IF it gets made) turns out better than the long delayed video game.

It's simple:

No Murray, no movie.

If BFM isn't in the movie I won't be seeing it, even as a rental.

He's starting to sound like Tom Arnold talking about a True Lies sequel.

This is still pointless until you have Bill Murray sign on.

I just don't get it

Ghostbusters was an awesome film that will always remain a classic in my eyes. However, Ghostbusters 2 was awful and really did follow "the sequel not a patch on the original" route that Hollywood seems to love. Where is this desirte for a Part 3 coming from? I'd rather they just left well alone to be honest.

I agree that GB2 was nothing compared to the original, but I still think it had some good laughs. I seem to remember an interview with Murray where he said he signed on for one script, then arrived to find the special effects guys had changed a lot of it. I think you can see that in the final product, as well.

I'm not saying it was a perfect film, far from it, but it did have some decent laughs and failed because of the Hollywood machine. Murray says the first half or three quarters of the

Murray says the first half or three quarters of the original film are comedy gold and I agree. If they can bring back more of the comedy and a little less of the effects, a Ghostbusters 3 could actually be wonderful. Hell, i'd watch it just to see those guys together again. And if Moranis doesn't return....we riot.

Please no!

I love Ghostbusters 1 & 2 but I absolutely do not want to see this be made. Bill Murray has no interest, thus I have no interest.

I love Ghostbusters but it pains me to see what Ghostbusters 3 going through. Delay after delay, it's a sign of script trouble. Sure, I'll go see Ghostbusters 3 if it's actually happening but I'm not getting my hopes up.

Ghostbusters: The Video Game was the third part of the story. It's time to just let this go. Will I go see a third movie? Absolutely. Do I care if it actually happens? Not at all.

They should focus less on the movies and instead produce a few more of these.

Agreed, Guy. The games would be a perfect way to continue the story. They don't have to set it in present day, so we don't have to see a bald Stantz, a fat Spengler, or gray Venkman. All they have to do is lend their voices. Sure, their ages and physical appearances don't matter as long as it's funny, but there comes a time to say "we're done".

Now that I think about it.....Zeddemore(Hudson) has aged incredibly well.....

We get it, Dan. It's been a while since you've been relevant. You want people to give a shit about you. But Ghostbusters 3 will never happen. It's time to move on.
