Dan Aykroyd appeared on The Dennis Miller Show to discuss ‘Ghostbusters 3′ and dropped specific details about the project on Thursday. He hinted that the plan is to film in Spring of 2012 no matter what happens casting-wise and with or without Bill Murray’s involvement.
“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.”
No decision has been made for who might be cast as the new characters, but Aykroyd stated that he did have some prospective casting in mind.
