“Ghostbusters” fans, rejoice ― it doesn’t look like the creators of the franchise want to stop anytime soon.
Dan Aykroyd, who starred in and co-wrote the first two films, sat down with “The HuffPost Show” co-hosts Roy Sekoff and Marc Lamont Hill on Friday and explained how he sees the series progressing in the future. While there are already two more films in the works, one with a star-studded all-female cast and another to be produced by Channing Tatum, Aykroyd said he hopes the series can live on even further.
“We need as many [’Ghostbusters’ films] as the artists want to produce with the concept. I mean, it’s kind of like the Marvel series. There’s opportunities here to do different types of stories,” he said.
Aykroyd also weighed in on the upcoming Paul Feig-directed reboot, which stars Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones.
“The writing is very skillful. And look at that powerhouse cast. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie connect with a whole new generation of young women who don’t know ‘Ghostbusters,’” he said.
