We’ve got a brilliant new writer on it and we’ll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We’re working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I’m confident we’ll be in production in the next year.
It’s sad [that Bill won’t be involved], but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters III can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on. It’s time to make the third one.
At this point it seems more like a reboot than a genuine sequel, but if the film indeed has the green light (as Mr. Aykroyd is implying), then it’s certainly a project to keep an eye on. Until we start to hear casting rumors, take this news with the usual grain of salt.
