In Boston to promote a new House of Blues, Dan Aykroyd answered some online questions for the Boston Globe – as is typical, the first question asked was about Ghostbusters 3

[Comment From Tom] 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

What’s it mean? Well, it doesn’t mean a Ghostbusters 3 is a sure thing. It means that if all goes well, the script commissioned last year will hopefully get the green light by around June, and if that happens, then hopefully the movie will go into production in the Fall. So, excellent to hear Dan is still pushing forward with the film, but it’s still not a done deal yet.

I for one am praying the script for this is top notch and that it will go ahead as planned, no word on cast yet but I’d love to see, Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel and Bill Hader in there somewhere… As ever more on this as I get it.
