E! Online recently caught up with Dan Aykroyd in Toronto, where he was promoting his own award winning wines and shuffling for Patron Tequila. In the midst of the madness, they asked him about a potential Ghostbusters 3. The comedic legend stated that the third film is indeed moving ahead, and that he wants the Apatow gang involved.
Dan stated," Two sharp young writers in Hollywood are purported to be writing the sequel. It would be the third movie now. If I could get Seth and Judd to be a part of it, that would be a dream. Absolutely."
The storyline would find the old Ghostbusters handing over the reigns to the new Ghostbusters (aka: Team Apatow). Will this film ever see the light of day? Someone certainly needs to ask Apatow next time they see him.
The article also mentions that this sequel will reunite all four of the original Ghostbusters: Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.
Eisenberg and Stupnitsky recently wrote Year One, which Ramis directed and could possibly have been the impetus behind a third film being made.
