Aykroyd's "Ghostbusters 3" Pushing May Soon Pay Off

by | February 6, 2007 | Comments

Canadian comedian Dan Aykroyd recently went on the air with a country music radio station, and that’s where he chose to break some stunningly, well, kinda interesting news: There will be a third "Ghostbusters" movie (and it will feature Bill Murray) — but it will also be a movie of the CGI persuasion. I’ll believe it when I see it.

Check out the audio clips of Aykroyd’s interview right here, or visit Cinematical to get the most salient points, like this quote here: "Now, it won’t happen as a live-action, because Billy will not come on in the live-action stage anymore for it, but he will voice his part and we’re looking to do it as a CGI-animated project."

"Billy" being Bill Murray, of course. Seems he won’t do silly live-action anymore, but that sure won’t stop him from lending his voice to, say, "Ghostbusters 3" … or "Garfield 2."

So, like most of you, I am an ardent supporter of the original "Ghostbusters," and, unlike many of you, I really freaking hate "Ghostbusters 2." So I ask you this: Does the idea of an all CGI "Ghostbusters 3" sound like a good idea? I say no, no it does not.

With all due respect, maybe Danny Aykroyd should start sniffing around for easier sequels. Weren’t we promised a follow-up to "Doctor Detroit" waaaay back in 1983?
