Back in March, we reported that Ghostbusters 3 may be director Ivan Reitman's next movie, if Bill Murray signs off on the script. According to Dan Aykroyd, they are still unsure if Bill Murray will sign on yet. Take a look at what he had to say below.
"Yes, we will be doing the movie, and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. We have an excellent script, but what we have to remember is that Ghostbusters is bigger than any one component. Although Billy was the lead and contributed to it in a massive way, along with myself, Harold (Ramis) and the director and Sigourney (Weaver), the concept is bigger than any one individual role."
The actor also talked a bit about the story line of Ghostbusters 3, confirming that a younger crop of Ghostbusters will be prominently featured.
"The promise of Ghostbusters 3 is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood. 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. We want to go into production in the spring, I hope."
As far as new cast members for this young crop of Ghostbusters, Dan Aykroyd does have one actor in mind.
"I like this Matthew Gray Gubler from the Criminal Minds show, but we'll be casting. We'll see everyone who wants to do it. It will be three guys and a young woman."
