Dan Ackroyd calls Rogen & Apatow's GHOST BUSTERS a dream!

Ackroyd claims a third movie is currently in the writing stages.

Dan Ackroyd, usually the figurehead voice for the Ghost Busters team loves the much talked about rumblings of what a Judd Apatow directed Ghost Busters 3 would look like with Seth Rogen and his usual crew (presumably Rudd, Carell etc) starring. And who knows, if Ackroyd is talking about it (and he would know, mentioning a script being written right now) maybe it's more than just rumblings...

Well, y€™know, two sharp young writers are purported to be writing the sequel, the third movie now. If I could interest Seth and Judd to be part of it, that would be an absolute dream.
I've said it time and time again. Ghost Busters is a staple of mine and many of my generation's childhood, two (ok for some just one) precious films that we don't particularly want to see revisited. HOWEVER, revisited they will most certainly be, just like Back to the Future will be sooner rather than later. The question is as to whether it will be a Stallone/Willis/Ford style return for the original cast or whether it will be new blood... or somewhere in the middle where it's a passing of the torch movie is where the big mystery lies. Now, because Ghost Busters will return in some form in the future... I would be more than happy to see Apatow and Rogen's take. They are at a similar position in popularity as Bill Murray/Dan Ackroyd/Harold Ramis in the mid 80's and their laidback, visceral style of acting would suit the franchise. And ya know, it will make an absolute fortune. Ghost Busters has a massive following. Play that theme song, walk the streets and see the logo shirts still being bought, the dvd's flying off the shelves, the new video game that looks mega exciting. I have no doubt it would be one of the biggest money earners of whatever particular year it is released. If it's gonna happen, it might as well be with these guys. Right? source - /film, eonline
