Female “Ghostbusters” or “Ghostbusters3?” Dan Aykroyd would like to see both.
In a recent interview seen here the original cast member calls the female led reboot “tasteful” and admits that the various scripts that he has written over the years for a third installment would not be filmed as is. He is hopeful that the reboot starring Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon will provide a new interest in the franchise. If the film is a large enough success the long awaited “Ghostbusters3 may finally see the big screen.
Fans like Zeca Oliveira know that with the passing of Harold Ramos and Bill Murray’s reluctance to return to his character, getting the green light from the studio will still be an uphill battle. Aykroid hopes that a successful film and a new script could convince studio executives to allow the remaining cast to suit up one last time. He hints that the new script could serve as a bridge between the new generation and the old.
The new “Ghostbusters” film is slated for a July 22, 2016 theater release. So strap on your proton packs and hop in ECTO1.
I ain’t afraid of no ghosts.
