Dan Aykroyd: New Ghostbusters film ‘being written’ for original stars

In other words, an actually funny movie, rather than garbage that was the last remake.

Who you gonna call? Maybe, the original surviving Ghostbusters.

Dan Aykroyd, one of the stars of the original 1984 film, said on AXS TV’s The Big Interview With Dan Rather Tuesday that a new take on the film is “being written right now.”

“There is a possibility of a reunion with the three remaining Ghostbusters,” he said, according to CNET sister site ComicBook.com. That would include Bill Murray and Ernie Hudson. Star Harold Ramis, who played Ghostbuster Egon Spengler, died in 2014.

Aykroyd even believes co-star Bill Murray will don the famed tan jumpsuit once again. Murray had previously said he wouldn’t return to the series.

“I think Billy will come,”Aykroyd told Rather. “The story’s so good. Even if he plays a ghost.”
