Some slight news on Sony’s Ghostbusters, which will apparently not be shooting this summer since writer Etan Cohen is still only about halfway through the script. The good news is that Dan Aykroyd is apparently inspired by some cool real-world scientific discoveries that they could use to bridge over into the supernatural universe for the sequel.
Aykoryd told ABC (via Badass Digest), “ I feel re-encouraged, reinvigorated by the pages that I have seen. I know that we’re expecting half of the screenplay to be completed very soon. It should be into production by the fall and be shooting by the new year. I won’t say anything, it’s very exciting. The Higgs boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible come through.”
Harold Ramis, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Rick Moranis and Sigourney Weaver are all rumored to be returning at some capacity. Again – this will crush all of your dreams if/when it happens. Trust me.
