Wow! I just decided to check out some movie news, and found something that got me very cautiously excited. When I read it, I didn’t believe it. I still sort of think that I’m only dreaming. I also had a weird feeling that if they did indeed shoot this fall, it would be far too soon. I would have thought that 2010 would be the earliest that they could start shooting to make a great GB3. I don’t know why I felt that way. I suppose that it’s just caution, but who knows.
As for the announcement, if we get the announcement in June, perhaps it’ll be announced on June 8th, which is the 25th Anniversary of the original film’s theatrical release.
It would be a very fitting time, as the video game is releasing on June 16th. There may not be a big enough venue at that time, however, to make the announcement huge, until the San Diego Comic Con.
[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.
