Dan Aykroyd talks about Ghostbusters III like he needs it to pay off a gambling debt. Legions of Ghostbusters fans don’t want a sequel because it’s never going to come close to being as good as the original. The prospect of a reboot with a female-led cast is certainly intriguing, and I don’t want to reject it out of hand. My irritation comes from Aykroyd, who believes that filming on Ghostbusters III is always just around the corner. That last link, in case you don’t want to click on it, was when Aykroyd thought Ghostbusters III could start filming the following winter. We posted that story in May 2009.
But now Aykroyd isn’t just looking ahead to a third Ghostbusters. Oh no. He’s thinking of a Marvel-style universe. Grab something you can bang your head against, and hit the jump.
