The back and forth on GHOSTBUSTERS III has gone on for far too long, and so it is with great thanks thatn I can share you with Dan Aykroyd's news about the definitive state of things regarding the project as revealed in an interview with Metro newspaper.

"Is Ghostbusters 3 finally happening?

Yes, we've got a brilliant new writer on it and we'll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We're working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I'm confident we'll be in production in the next year.

It's been a long process, hasn't it?

Yes, but now we've got the studio on side. We've tried a few concepts which weren't right but now we've got a good structure and will make it happen.

Is Bill Murray doing it?

No, I can tell you he won't be involved.

How do you feel about that?

It's sad but we're passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn't seem to be coming and we have to move on. It's time to make the third one."

I think the most important thing to take away from all this is that we can finally stop speculating and get on with whatever else we've all got going on.  GHOSTBUSTERS III is happening, Murray's moved on, and the stage is very possibly being set for a new franchise.  Do with that what you will.

And for those of you bummed about the hole in this movie's heart that is a lack of Bill Murray (as any sensible person should be), I present these Sexy Ghostbusters as consolation:

Sexy Ghostbusters 1

Sexy Ghostbusters 2
