Fans of the classic ‘Ghostbusters’ movies who are not happy about the prospect of an all female led reboot of the movie franchise may have cause to celebrate.
Apparently a more traditional ‘Ghostbusters’ sequel could still be on the cards.
During a recent interview about the reboot, which will star Melissa McCarthy. Dan Aykroyd who co-wrote the original movies told Sirius XM that he still plans to develop a film that is more in the mold of the original two ‘Ghostbusters’ movies.
“There’s three drafts of the old concept that exists. And we’re going to be able to salvage some of it and use it,” Aykroyd said.
“We’re going to be able to use it some day. Let’s get this one made and that will reinvigorate the franchise and then we’ll go on to maybe doing a more conventional third sequel as we were planning and another idea I have for it.”
When asked about the forthcoming 2016 reboot Aykroyd was upbeat and revealed that as the creator of the originals he was happy with how Paul Feig has approached a reboot.
