Ghostbusters III: The State of Things
According to OWF, which has got a pretty great write up of the current state of things (background by The L.A. Times), Akroyd has also revealed that there will likely be five new Ghostbusters, and that one will be a female. No one has been cast, and potential new Ghostbusters (including John Krasinksi and Seth Rogen) haven't even let on that they've been approached (though, you can bet your ass someone has been approached).
The two people that Dan Akroyd did mention, however, as possible female Ghostbusters were: Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku, which suggests to me that Akroyd doesn't actually want to make a good movie. Milano -- maybe. She's never had a much of a big-screen presence, save for some choice scenes in mostly straight-to-DVD fare that rekindled my teenage Milano lust. And Dushku: Well, there's hardly a worse actress on the planet, unless you are fans of cold vacant stares and line-readings from droids. I know that Akroyd is behind the third movie, but I hope to God he lets someone else do the casting.
And that is the state of things. Akroyd does hope to start filming in the winter. Anyone want to offer up a dreamcast here: Five Ghostbusters. At least one female.
