Rick Moranis Ready For “Ghostbusters III”

In case the word that Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson taking part in “Ghostbusters III,” isn’t enough for you, here’s one more tidbit: Rick Moranis will also return.

Entertainment Weekly on-line says that Moranis, whose last big-screen movie was 1996’s “Big Bully,” will reprise his role of accountant Louis Tully.

Screenwriters Gene Stupinksy and Lee Eisenberg won’t finish the script until later this summer because their day job of writing for “The Office,” will keep them plently busy until then.

Also, EW claims that the much discussed Dan Aykroyd-penned story about the Ghostbusters going to Hell is not going to be the storyline for part three.

“Ghostbusters 3” Planning Fall Shooting Date?

In an on-line chat with the readers of Boston.com, Dan Akroyd, (in town to promote the opening of a new “House of Blues,”) said “Ghostbusters 3” is coming.  Soon.  Here’s an excerpt from the chat:

Fan question: Ghostbusters 3? I’ve heard that the writers of the Office are currently penning a script? How is this coming along, and should we look forward to this movie seeing the light of day? Thanks Dan!

Dan Aykroyd: Script is commenced early summer. Hope to be in production by late fall 2009

Well, there you go.  Do I believe it?  I’m not sure.  Am I excited?  I’d say more hesitant and reserved.  Does anyone remember the last Indiana Jones movie?  -Sam
