Hooray for another Ghostbusters 3 update! Good to see the project staying alive. If we could only get an Arrested Development update, then we'd be golden!
As far as Ghostbusters 3 news is concerned, the latest update is that Dan Aykroyd is working on a new draft of the script, while he travels around the U.S. and promotes his Crystal Head Vodka from his RV.
Good thing Aykroyd is getting going on a new draft of the script, because Bill Murray was not a fan of the previous draft.
Here's what Aykroyd had to say about it:
"I think he was concerned that the writing on Ghostbusters 3 by these guys would not be up to standard, but I can tell you firsthand, I'm working on the script now and those two - Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, wrote Bill the comic role of a lifetime, and the new Ghostbusters and the old are all well represented in it…we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I'm very excited about working on it."
More from Aykroyd on the new movie:
"Look, Hollywood is in love with any kind of nostalgia that can prove itself to be commercial. But it has to evolve. Now [in Ghostbusters 3] my character's eyesight is shot, I got a bad knee, a bad hip-I can't drive that caddy anymore or lift that Psychotron Accelerator anymore, it's too heavy. We need young legs, new minds-new Ghostbusters; so I'm in essence passing the torch to the new regime, and you know what? That's totally okay with me."
Keep going with that script, Dan! If selling alien-skull-shaped bottles of vodka gives you ample time to write, then keep selling those bottles and keep writing!
And bring back Rick Moranis, if you can. We'd love to see his triumphant return!
