ACKROYD Confirms Work On ‘GHOSTBUSTERS 3’ To Begin In 2012!

By on 26 August, 2011


GHOSTBUSTERS‘ star Dan Aykroyd has confirmed that a third movie will be filmed in the near future, and he hopes Bill Murray will come on board to reprise the role of Dr. Peter Venkman.


Aykroyd who wrote and starred in the previous two movies as Dr. Raymond Stantz, and he recently confirms there is a schedule in place for a new movie. However former co-star Murray allegedly still hasn’t read the script, so it’s unclear whether he will return.

Speaking about the upcoming project to reboot the franchise, and revealing the hunt for new blood to expand into more movies, Ackroyd said:

“Yes, we will be doing the movie [next year] and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. We have an excellent script.

“What we have to remember is that ‘Ghostbusters’ is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold (Ramis), myself and Sigourney (Weaver). The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of ‘Ghostbusters 3’ is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood.”


Ackroyd also revealed further script details, adding all the characters have developed health problems.

He said:

“My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can’t drive the Cadillac. He’s got a bad knee and can’t carry the packs. Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that’s the promise. We’re gonna hand it to a new generation.”
