GHOSTBUSTERS 3 Begins This Fall?

Dan Aykroyd reveals shoot status.

It seems that Columbia Pictures is wasting no time with their long awaited return of those ectoplasm fighting heroes. Or Dan Aykroyd is just being optimistic about the development of Ghostbusters 3. While at a grand opening for a new House of Blues, the star revealed to The Boston Globe that scripting is nearly ready in hopes of a production start up in the fall.

Screenwriters Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky (co-executive producers of "The Office") have been tasked by the studio to flesh out a new adventure featuring the return of Harold Ramis, Bill Murray, Aykroyd and Ernie Hudson. Early reports indicate that they will be mentors to a younger team.

Here's what Dan had to say on the progress of the third title.

Q: Dan, I'm extremely excited for the HOB to be back in its birth-city!! I will be attending many shows. On a side note, and I'm sure you get these questions a lot, so I apologize in advance...Ghostbusters 3? I've heard that the writers of the Office are currently penning a script? How is this coming along, and should we look forward to this movie seeing the light of day? Thanks Dan!

Dan Aykroyd: Script is commenced early summer. Hope to be in production by late fall 2009.

Expect a Mania look at the coming Ghostbusters game on Friday.

I agree with Hanso, but they need a  black dude so they should get the black dude from Pineapple Express and Zack & Miri. I would be totally down for this if it actuall happens. I love the first one, and even the second one is fun thanks to Bill Murray and Peter Mcnichol........He is Viggo!!!

I would actually like to see Will Ferrell in it.

And I think the script Ramis and Akroyd did went to the video game didn't it?

Akroyd and Ramis are still super funny actors, but I am not sure about their writing anymore.

Blues Brothers 2000 anyone?

I'll believe it when I see it.  Then again, it will probably suck rocks, so I may never see it. Hmm. Bit of a dilemma there.

Starlightguard...Dont liek Apatow's crews work? Becaseu i havent met anyone who hasnt. But i would say they are a bad fit for this movie, writing and acting wise.

Looking forward to a new Ghostbusters :) As long as its not a

Well, hopefully it will be a much better outing than last.  But the big question is, will the long-wait have dulled the senses of those that may have cared except to those that are loyal fans to the actors themselves.  X-Files 2 anyone?
