Ghostbusters 3 seems like it’s been frozen in stasis for a while. New writers were hired last July, but they didn’t have a principal cast or anything else as recently as December. ABC News spoke with Dan Aykroyd recently and asked him point blank whether there’s any hope for the movie being made; here’s what he had to say:
I feel re-encouraged, reinvigorated by the pages that I have seen. I know that we’re expecting half of the screenplay to be completed very soon. It should be into production by the fall and be shooting by the new year. I won’t say anything, it’s very exciting. The Higgs boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible come through.
Well, it’s something. However, given that the screenplay isn’t even finished? I’m not going to get wound up until it’s done and they have a director and cast. There are still way too many moving parts (that have been moving for a while).
