With the passing of Harold Ramis, it seemed another monkey wrench had been thrown into the plans of the long rumored 'Ghostbusters 3,' which co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd has been working on for over twenty years. Now it's been revealed that commerce trumps tragedy as Sony and director Ivan Reitman are definitely moving forward with the project.
Miles Teller has been picking up steam lately with roles in 'The Spectacular Now' and 'Whiplash,' which opened the festivities at this week's Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. And right on the heels of that premiere comes word of Teller's latest role: playing comedy icon Dan Aykroyd in the upcoming John Belushi biopic, starring Emile Hirsch. At least that's what Hirsch says.
'Ghostbusters 3' has seesawed between dead and "in progress" for quite some time, but one of the original film's stars, Dan Aykroyd, recently stated that filming will kick off next year... so that means it's still coming? Well, yes. Now it looks like we will be seeing a third installment coming in the near future, and Aykroyd took to Larry King to tell us more about what it'll be about.
'Ghostbusters 3' has been killed (and resurrected) so many times that we could easily make a joke about it being a ghost itself at this point, but we won't subject you to such poor comedy. After a few months of silence, the project has reared its head again and is back to haunt (sorry) internet movie news sites all over the world. The latest rumor is that 'Ghostbusters 3' is not only back from the dead, but it will now be an animated movie.
Everywhere they go, members of the original ‘Ghostbusters’ cast will be asked about the rumored third movie up until that movie’s actually playing on a screen somewhere. And every once in a while, one of those cast members will cough up a nugget of somewhat-significant news … like the fact that new writers are tackling the screenplay.
Boy, that Dan Aykroyd sure keeps himself busy, doesn't he? When he's not desperately trying to revive the 'Ghostbusters' franchise or literally chasing the supernatural (seriously, he does that), it seems the former 'Saturday Night Live' star has set his sights on yet another old property to revive - but through exactly what medium?
Dan Aykroyd’s determined to re-team with someone from his past. Anyone! Since John Belushi’s no longer with us, and Bill Murray refuses to stoop to ‘Ghostbuster 3’ levels, Aykroyd’s turning to ‘Spies Like Us’ co-star Chevy Chase for a possible new comedy. The comedian posted a note on his Facebook page saying that he and the ‘Community’ co-star were about to “start work on a script concept for a comedy movie.”Mmm, do tell...
