Dan Aykroyd says production will begin on Ghostbusters 3 in spring of 2015

Jul. 23, 2014by: Sean Wist

Earlier this year, Ivan Reitman stepped down from the director's chair of GHOSTBUSTERS 3 in the aftermath of Harold Ramis' death. He was adamant that there would be a third film, and that he would be supervising as producer instead. There hasn't been any news of a replacement director or any production delay since, although it seems the team behind the sequel hasn't been slowed down in the slightest. Earlier this week Dan Aykroyd was on the Today show discussing the 30th anniversary of GHOSTBUSTERS, when the topic of GHOSTBUSTERS 3 came up.

Here's what Aykroyd had to say:

It looks like well be in production, pre-production in the spring now, from what Im hearing. It should be good.

I think everyone is feeling more than a little "iffy" about a third Ghostbusters film, especially with the lack of involvement from Bill Murray and the unfortunate passing of Harold Ramis. The team seems to want to continue so I hope that they have a story that can really live up to the first film. I'm not opposed to a new group of Ghostbusters, but it's not like they have have Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and Jason Segel lined up to take over, ya know? I suppose we'll find out soon enough.

GHOSTBUSTERS 3 will begin production in the Spring of 2015.

That's what I was going to say, something along the lines of Dan should buy the Frozen soundtrack and listen to Let It Go.

Eh they will eventually churn out another one but I would consider it more a reboot than a sequel, as it will most likely only have Dan in it, in a bit part, playing the old codger in the mental institution that no one believes anymore. Some random tween of the moment will find their old proton packs and go to town, and we will have ourselves a new TwilightBusters franchise. Ah the humanity.

At this point, I'm not holding my breath anymore. When they actually start filming, then tell me because so far I think the main problem is the script and it's possibly been re-written gazillion times already.

Half of the original team won't even be in the film. Why even attempt this film at all???? It won't even be a real, true Ghostbusters film and sequel.

Wow, look at all the cry babies! If rogen and his posse joins the cast and takes this franchise over, I have no problem with that what so ever! This is a chance to see a new ghostbusters film in theaters. I'm in! It may suck! It may be ok, it may be hilarious. Fact is, none of you will know until it comes out. Maybe Murray will come around and join the cast, maybe they'll cgi ramis in as a ghost, maybe not! The fact that nobody even gives is a chance is such a joke! Guess what all you cry

I guarantee I won't be seeing it anymore than I'll be seeing that ridiculously lame excuse for a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.

This is what you don't seem to get: movies are almost all about chemistry. The original Ghostbusters and even the second one had a certain feel to them and the chemistry between the actors/characters made it work beautifully. Times have changed. Half of the Ghostbusters won't even be in it. How can anybody be even remotely excited for this? Weren't you the one

So you'll froth at the mouth and go into convulsions because there will be slightly less blood than the last couple, by you're fine with a classic franchise being needlessly resurrected and destroyed by missing cast members and being immersed into this horrid, new generation?

If you look up 'optimism' in the dictionary they are just going to have a picture of Dan Ackroyd's face. Oh, I'm sorry, I meant 'misguided'.

It's absurd to make a third one anyway but with two of the four absent, the passing of a quarter-century between the second and third films and the fact that the ridiculously lame and stupid passing of the torch treatment is still in order, this is going to be a complete and utter joke.

This is ********!

This threequel should not happen. One actor of the cast is dead, one isn't interested in doing the movie, and the concept of Ghostbusting is not original in this day and age.
