Original paranormal expert Dan Aykroyd filled in the public on the future of Ray, Venkman, Egon and the rest of the team in Ghostbusters 3, and added a little she-buster wishful casting, and plot details.


LA Times' The Hero Complex interviewed Dan Aykroyd who first explained that he harbored no ill will towards Bill Murray for not immediately signing on for the third film, and that it was indeed Murray's involvement that became the "pivot point in making a third film happen."

Aykroyd revealed that the new busters would be a a five-member "new generation" team with more than one female member:

"I'd like it to be a passing-of-the-torch movie. Let's revisit the old characters briefly and happily and have them there as family, but let's pass it on to a new generation."

As for what women Aykroyd thinks should fill out those jumpsuits? That part was easy to answer: Alyssa Milano and Eliza Dushku. Who wouldn't want to be surrounded up those two great looking, butt-kicking gals all day on set? Plus Milano did the voices for the Ghostbusters video game.

Of course this is only speculation, and both actresses twittered that they hadn't heard anything:

Alyssa Milano:

Can't speak for @ElizaPatricia (Hi, pretty lady)but this is the first I'm hearing of Ghostbusters 3. Did the VO in the game tho.


Eliza Dushku:

Ghost-rumor-buster in a big way @Alyssa_milano (hey girlene) it's nuthin' I know of.
