Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase Are Writing a New Comedy Script

     March 20, 2012


As Ghostbusters 3 is looking less and less likely with each new non-update from Dan Aykroyd, the actor/screenwriter has announced that he’s now getting to work on a new comedy with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Chevy Chase. No plot details were given, but Aykroyd said that he’s beginning to start work on a script concept for a comedy movie with Chase. Aykroyd hasn’t had a script produced since 1998’s Blues Brothers 2000 (yeah, that movie actually happened) and Chase’s last writing credit was the short-lived The Chevy Chase Show in 1993, but apparently the two have an idea for a new comedy that they’d like to see come to fruition. Hit the jump for more.

dan-aykroyd-chevy-chaseAykroyd made the announcement on his Facebook page:

“Chevy (Chase) and I are about to start work on a script concept for a comedy movie. Cannot say too much about the concept, but the joy of working with him again is one that I am extremely excited about. Chevy is one of my favourite people, and one of the great anarchistic and physically committed comedians in the business.”

This news might have been exciting 25 years ago, but Chase is consistently the weakest link on NBC’s Community. Furthermore, he recently revealed to Steve that he was working on his own Vacation script with co-star Beverly DeAngelo to counter the studio’s reboot of the franchise, and lets just say his plot idea for the Griswolds isn’t the sharpest. As for Aykroyd, I think he’s actually still quite funny, but his scripts generally leave something to be desired. There’s no guarantee that the script by Aykroyd and Chase will even get to a studio, let alone production, but at this point it appears they’re intent on working through the concept.

    One of the first principals of journalism is to never let your personal opinion influence a story. This author clearly has not attended ANY journalism
    Courses or just chooses to ignore them. I am a successful 24 year old woman and several of my friends and myself all adore Chevy Chase, in community and otherwise, he is one of my favorite characters (and many of my friends as well.) So this Author Adam chitwood posted a review claiming “chase is consistently the weakest link on community,” which leads me to wonder Adam, what is your proof of this? And what have you done to better humanity? Because before today I have never in my life heard the name Adam chitwood, however all of my friends including myself love and respect
    Chevy chase. Collider.com I would highly suggest rethinking your hire of this person, tonly comments are negative ones so think just how many people read
    This and closed it before finishing, this guy is clearly just stating his opinion and honestly who the fuck is he? I’ve heard of chevy chase never you. I would
    Highly suggest firing and or demoting this man, he clearly has less understanding of the
    American public than he does the system of journalism. We love you chevy!!!!!
