Dan Aykroyd Hires New 'Ghostbusters 3' Writers, Supposedly Has High Standards

Though Aykroyd in February admitted another Ghostbusters sequel was looking increasingly unlikely, and in March announced he'd started work on a new project with a different SNL buddy, he has still not given up on his dream of bleeding his franchise like the walls of the 53rd precinct.

Perhaps caving to Bill Murray's insistence that a Ghostbusters 3 script actually be decent, Aykroyd has hired on a new writing team to take over for Year One writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who have been working on the project for upwards of three years. Speaking to WIVB (via), dubiously-perfectionistic Aykroyd last weekend revealed:

"We've got a new writing staff working on it now. It's got to be perfect. That's the whole thing. There's no point in doing it unless it's perfect. So that's what we're up to now."

Still no word on who this new writing staff is, but hopefully they're as good as the last writers at covering their ears and humming the Ghostbusters theme every time Bill Murray goes on a talk show.
