As we previously reported several months back, Ghostbusters 3 is moving forward. Well, recently we were able to get some more info pertaining to the film, and a little more than what the Los Angeles Times recently reported.
First, let’s get you up to speed; Dan Aykroyd recently spilled the news that the film was moving forward and that Signourney Weaver is apparently on board. Weaver will be joining the cast of Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson.
The other news item that was recently released was the fact that while the Producers intend to bring back the old characters, they intend to introduce new characters to the team, basically a “new generation.” Aykroyd also revealed that the characters he would like to see join the team may be female members, and two actresses he likes in particular are Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku.
The news we recently discovered is that the producers are also looking for one more comedian to join the team, someone new, and as we were told “fresh to the scene in the world of comedy.” That person is to be a counter-part to Ernie Hudson’s character, and maybe several more team members, as it looks like the new film will be almost ‘Star Trek-ish’, in a sense were there will be an Academy for cadets to learn how to be the next generation of Ghostbusters, as they learn how to use the neuron splitter and the inter-planet interceptor - new tools that will enable the cadets to slip from dimension to dimension.
Anyway we are left with the thought that there is going to be several new African-American comedian/actors that may be joining the cast, but no word yet on whom the part is intended for.
