Aykroyd Confirms Ghostbusters 3 Is All Go

DAN AYKROYD has confirmed the third GHOSTBUSTERS movie is all set to go before the cameras - with the original cast in place to reprise the characters from the 1984 film.
The movie star reveals Sigourney Weaver has signed on for the project, alongside himself, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson - and the film could start shooting this winter (09).
Aykroyd still fears the project could "blow up" "at any second" but he hopes the new film will herald in a new generation of all-girl Ghostbusters.
He tells the Los Angeles Times newspaper, "I'd like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let's revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family but let's pass it on to a new generation."
And the actor wants Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku to consider becoming part of the Ghostbusters family: "I think they're amazing."
