Fire up those proton packs, kids because Dan Aykroyd has confirmed Ghostbusters 3 has the green light!

Aykroyd tells Metro, “Yes, 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.”

But sadly the show must go on without the legendary Bill Murray. Why does that guy have to be so weird? I personally love Murray as an actor and I think his antics off screen are hilarious and wonderful. Then he does something like this and I take it personally. It feels like he’s fucking up my childhood.

“It’s sad, but we’re passing it on to a new generation,” says Aykroyd, “Ghostbusters 3 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.”

I’m still looking forward to this film, but I’m definitely saddened by the absence of Dr. Peter Venkman.

Will you still watch Ghostbusters 3?
