Dan Aykroyd, one of the writers and stars of the 1984 blockbuster Ghostbusters, recently spoke to The Guardian, in which he revealed a few details about the upcoming third instalment in the franchise.
“There’ll be a whole new generation that has to be trained and a leader that you’ll all love when you meet her,” said Aykroyd to the newspaper, before slipping in a mention of the new tools that will likely control the plot line in the same way that the proton packs and containment grids did in the first outing. “There’ll be lots of cadets, boys and girls who’ll be learning how to use the neuron splitter and the inter-planet interceptor – new tools to enable them to slip from dimension to dimension.”
A third Ghostbusters has been highly publicised recently, thanks to interviews given by Aykroyd, a videogame release and the recent high definition transfer to Blu-ray. Ghostbusters 3 is currently in the development stages, with a script expected to be delivered in the next few months. Bill Murray, Sigourney Weaver, and Ernie Hudson will reportedly reprise their roles.
