'Ghostbusters 3' Filming in 2012, With or Without Bill Murray

| by Michael Allen

'Ghostbusters 3' is apparently going to film in Spring of 2012, with or without Bill Murray, according to his co-star Dan Aykroyd, who appeared on 'The Dennis Miller Show.' 

Aykroyd said, "Yes, we will be doing the movie and hopefully with Mr. Murray. That is our hope. We have an excellent script. What we have to remember is that 'Ghostbusters' is bigger than any one component, although Billy was absolutely the lead and contributive to it in a massive way, as was the director and Harold (Ramis), myself and Sigourney (Weaver). The concept is much larger than any individual role and the promise of 'Ghostbusters 3' is that we get to hand the equipment and the franchise down to new blood."

The comedian revealed more plot points on Miller's radio show, including: "My character, Ray, is now blind in one eye and can't drive the Cadillac. He's got a bad knee and can't carry the packs... Egon is too large to get into the harness. We need young blood and that's the promise. We're gonna hand it to a new generation."

As for who might be cast as the new characters, Aykroyd hinted, "I like this guy Matthew Gray Gubler from the 'Criminal Minds' show. But there's going to be a casting. We're going to see everyone that wants to do it. We're going to need... three guys and a young woman."
