Dan Aykroyd Wants a Whole Marvel-Style Universe in His Ghostbusters Storage Facility

Divulging a plan nearly as thought out as his idea to "get her," Dan Aykroyd has revealed his flimsy plot to stretch the Ghostbusters protection grid as thin as he can.

"It's beyond just another sequel, a prequel, another TV show," Aykroyd reportedly said in London, where he was peddling his vodka-in-a-human-skull. "What does Pixar and Star Wars mean to Disney? What does Marvel mean to Fox?" In essence, what does integrity mean to the voice of 2010's Yogi Bear?

Though he hasn't even been able to get a third film off the ground in the many, many years he's been talking about it, the liquor baron went on to explain just how much we should expect from his franchise. "Not just another movie or another TV show," Aykroyd said, "but what's the totality of it? The whole mythology from the beginning of their lives, the end of their lives. Ghostbusters at nine years old, Ghostbusters in high school." Because what was Ghostbusters if not the setup for the Boyhood of spectral incarceration?

"That's the ambitious thinking that's going on now," the one-time "heart of the Ghostbusters" continued. "Taking on the model of Marvel where we take all of the elements that are in this movie and we put them out there as different ideas."

Still, though he's already moved on to inventing Slimer spin-off prequels about a fat guy eating himself to death, Aykroyd admits that the long-gestating third Ghostbusters really isn't any closer to happening than it ever has been, saying, "We need to write it." If only he could go back to those early ghostbusting days, when he merely had to think of a big, terrible, brand-based thing for it to materialize.
