Dan Aykroyd talks Ghostbusters 3 plot


The third installment of Ghostbusters has been bouncing around forever, but it is still a thing that may happen. We’ve already heard that the films will focus on a younger generation of Ghostbusters, with the old guys passing the torch, but little else has been leaked. On The Larry King Now Dan Aykroyd, who is writing the screenplay, let a bit more slip.

“It’s based on new research that’s being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. Basically, there’s research being done that I can say that the world or the dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence, length, height, width and time, become threatened by some of the research that’s being done. Ghostbusters — new Ghostbusters — have to come and solve the problem.”

Sounds like a really loose excuse to have ghosts pop up and then have people bust said ghosts. While the plot plays a part of the quality of any movie the reason the Ghostbuster films worked is because the cast was so awesome together. Hopefully that chemistry can be established with this new generation.

Oh, and Bill Murray? Still out, but there’s a spot for him Aykroyd said.
