Dan Akyroyd Is Working On The Ghostbusters 3 Script
I’m not sure I believe Ghostbusters 3 will ever happen. Bill Murray has been pretty adamantly against it for awhile now, and there’s no movie without Bill Murray. But Dan Akyroyd is all for it and every time anyone talks to him, he’s intent on pushing ahead with the whole thing. Now he may even be writing the script.
Talking with Vanity Fair about the project he says, “I’m working on the script now.” In that same paragraph though, he praises the script written by Stupnitsky and Eisenberg, the same script Bill Murray has been trashing. It’s unclear exactly what Akyroyd means by “working” on it. Does that mean he’s writing a new one, making changes to the current one, or does it simply mean he’s reading the Stupnitsky and Eisenberg script? It’s clear as mud.
He does clear things up a little though when he says, “we have a strong first draft that Harold [Ramis] and I will take back, and I’m very excited about working on it.” So it sounds like they haven’t given up on the project yet, even though Bill Murray’s being sort of a pain about it. Will this ever really happen? I still don’t think so.
