News: Ghostbusters 3 – Give it up, Dan. Please.
I don’t know why Hollywood doesn’t just reboot it. I mean, they’ve pissed all over our other childhood memories, why stop here? But here we go, big ol’ cuddly ol’ Dan Ayckroyd has been talking up Ghostbusters 3 in a recent radio interview. The film, rather appropriately, has been in development hell for decades now, but Ayckroyd insists that 2012 is when things will finally get moving. He says -
“Yes, we will be doing the movie 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.”
The last time I was really interested in a Ghostbusters sequel was when Danny talked of Ghostbusters Go To Hell, which is more than ten years ago now. That involved Manhattan being sucked into the deep recesses of Hell and our heroes having to enter the fiery realm to save their beloved city. At the time the script was costed at around $300 million to make, so there was no chance it was ever going to be green lit. Shame, because it sounded (and still sounds) awesome.
