Dan Aykroyd Reveals GHOSTBUSTERS Delusional Plans


In yet another thoughtless update on Ghostbusters franchise, co-writer and star Dan Aykroyd talks about the series like he needs money to pay off his gambling debts.

While promoting his brand of Crystal Head vodka, the 62-year-old actor revealed his grand delusional plans for the next ten years for a franchise that hasn’t even entered serious pre-production on a third Ghostbusters movie.

‘It’s beyond just another sequel, a prequel, another TV show. I’m thinking what does the whole brand mean to Sony? What does Pixar and Star Wars mean to Disney? What does Marvel?’

Aykroyd then used a car metaphor to explain how the original franchise concept is old, stupid, and boring:

‘It’s up on blocks, it needs new electronics, new everything. That’s what we have to do. The whole vehicle of Ghostbusters has to be rebuilt. That’s the ambitious thinking that’s going on now. Taking on the model of Marvel where we take all of the elements that are in this movie and we put them out there as different ideas.’

And then comes the boom:

Aykroyd also added that he thought the idea of a female-led Ghostbusters was a possibility for the third or fourth film. ‘We need to write it,’  he said though.

There’s no doubt that he has no idea what he’s talking about. … I think this is a strategy actually.

The Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky penned the most recent draft for Ghostbusters 3, which is rumored to be going into production next year.
