Dan Aykroyd has said that the mooted Ghostbusters 3 could start filming as soon as next year.
Talking to ABC News, the veteran actor and director also admitted that he is still hoping to get Bill Murray involved in the project.
“I know that we’re expecting half of the screenplay to be completed very soon. It should be into production by the fall and be shooting by the New Year.”
“I won’t say anything, it’s very exciting. The Higgs boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible come through.”
“It’s going to be very, very exciting. I’ve been more encouraged than I ever have been. It sounds real now.”
“We’ve got a sharp new writer on it, Ivan is on it, Harold [Ramis] is on it, I’m on it. And if I can put the catch-net on Billy [Murray] and bring him in, it will be wonderful, if he decides to do it. There will always be a hole for him.”
