Aykroyd gives us news...

While appearing on The Dennis Miller Show, Dan Aykroyd has dropped a major bombshell of news dealing with the third installment with the Ghostbusters series.
"Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray," he says, "That is our hope. 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."
The plan is to start filming in Spring 2012, whether Bill Murray opts to be involved or not!

Aykroyd confirms the plot rumor of handing it to a new generation.
"My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the cadillac," he says, "He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."
