Dan Aykroyd has appeared on 'The Dennis Miller Show' finally talking about something WE all care about! And that's just what the heck is happening with 'Ghostbusters 3'!? On the show Danny-boy let slip some interesting tidbits for the project which finally looks like it's moving. Aykroyd hinted that he is planning a Spring 2012 shoot "no matter what happens casting-wise". He also confirmed that he is on the lookout for 3 men and young woman (I still want Anna Faris!) who will be vital to the plot which will incorporate what we all thought - that the hunt is on for a new generation of 'Ghostbusters'. Check out the most interesting snippets from the interview below.
"Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray," he says, "That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold [Ramis], myself and Sigourney [Weaver]. The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."
"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the cadillac," he says, "He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."
"I like this guy Matthew Gray Gubler from the 'Criminal Minds' show," he adds, "But there's going to be a casting. We're going to see everyone that wants to do it. We're going to need... three guys and a young woman."
