Rumors have been circulating for months over the possibility of a new live-action Ghostbusters sequel in which the original movies’ cast turns over their ghost-busting responsibilities to Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, and other soft-middled Apatow acolytes. Since this is clearly too awesome to possibly be true, Rogen denied it a few weeks ago. But, today, our friends at /Film direct us to a new interview with Dan Akroyd in which he subtly suggests that he knows otherwise.
Yesterday, Aykroyd told E! News the following (see video below):
Well, you know, two sharp young writers are purported to be writing the sequel, the third movie now. If I could interest Seth [Rogen] and Judd [Apatow] to be part of it, that would be an absolute dream.
Actually, we had no idea that anyone was actually writing a third Ghostbusters. And since we can’t think of a single living person who wouldn’t love to see a third Ghostbusters, we doubt this is something Apatow or Rogen would turn down. Surely this is in the works, right?
