Dan Aykroyd Says Ghostbusters 7 Goes Into Pre-Production This Spring


More Ghostbusters III Non-News; Ruben Fleischer in the Mix to DirectI know, guys. I’m sick of this, too. But I love Dan Aykroyd a ton and I’m really hoping this isn’t more blather. The actor sat down with the “Today Show” where he suggested the film would, in fact, kick off this spring!

No, I’m not betting my life on it, but Aykroyd seems to think the oft-announced sequel is en route.

“It looks like we’ll be in pre-production in the spring now, from what I’m hearing,” Aykroyd told Carson Daly during his interview. “It should be good.”

But don’t take my word for it, watch Danny’s segment here:

As always, take this with a grain of salt and, as always, expect more soon.

Etan Cohen penned the Ghostbusters III script, which is cut from the same cloth as the original films. The original Ghostbusters will have a very small role in the sequel. Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson, who played Ray Stantz and Winston Zeddemore, respectively, are expected to return, though Bill Murray’s involvement is questionable. You may recall that Murray had a cameo in Zombieland so, if Ruben Fleischer winds up directing, he may be able to get the slippery bastard into the mix after all.

This won’t be the last you hear of the sequel nobody wants, folks. But it’ll be interesting to see what happens if Sony’s August re-release of the original 1984 film makes good money. I’d be willing to bet that Aykroyd’s prophecy be fulfilled in that scenario.
