Dan Aykroyd says that he's currently writing on Ghostbusters 3 script

It's hard to not love Dan Aykroyd. The guy plays this memorable and amazing characters that you always remember. He also makes vodka that comes in a glass skull. Overall, he seems like a great guy. But how seriously should we take him when it comes to talk of GHOSTBUSTERS 3?

In a sit down with Vanity Fair, the possible third adventure for the new, or old ghostbusting team came up.

Here's how it went:

Speaking of your film career, last month in GQ Bill Murray said something that wasn’t so nice about Ghostbusters 3.

He was talking about the writers from Year One, and I think he was reacting to the box-office success and the general public view of the film, which in my view was a very serviceable comedy, and in the end I think they’ll make their money back. I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I’m working on the script now and those two—Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, [writer-producers of The Office]—wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.

Bill and Ted 3. Heathers 2. True Lies 2. Really?

Look, Hollywood is in love with any kind of nostalgia that can prove itself to be commercial. But it has to evolve. Now [in Ghostbusters 3] my character’s eyesight is shot, I got a bad knee, a bad hip—I can’t drive that caddy anymore or lift that Psychotron Accelerator anymore, it’s too heavy. We need young legs, new minds—new Ghostbusters; so I’m in essence passing the torch to the new regime, and you know what? That’s totally okay with me.

Is Murray going to end up calling "bullshit" again? As far as I know, the project is still a-go, it's just really, really slow.
