On the lighter side of things, it is good to know that some things you found funny might still funny today. I thought that the Ghostbusters movie was hilariously funny, and the second was actually a bit better than the first, because it was a hardy razzing of the stereotypical New Yorker.

It’s been a good long time since that Ghostbusters 2 movie, and many who saw them probably don’t regularly attend movies in the theater anymore (I know I don’t, mostly due to the lack of manners of today’s moviegoers). But perhaps we can be dragged back into the theaters once more for a third round with the guys that have those atomic devices on their backs, and humor in their hearts.

The script for the "Ghostbusters" sequel is almost complete, according to star and screenwriter Dan Aykroyd.

All four of the original "Ghostbusters" — Aykroyd, Bill Murray, Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson — were said to have signed up to star in a third film, 21 years after the second installment hit cinemas in 1989.

Murray previously dismissed the speculation, insisting plans for a follow-up are "hogwash."

But now Aykroyd has spoken out to say the script is near completion — and he’s convinced even Murray will be pleased with it.

He tells Britain’s Daily Express, "I think Bill was concerned that the writing on ‘Ghostbusters 3’ would not be up to standard but I’m working on the script now. And Bill has the comic role of a lifetime."

Aykroyd also said this could be the last film in the franchise for the original line-up: "My character’s eyesight is shot, I’ve got a bad knee, a bad hip — I can’t lift the Psychotron Accelerator any more. We need young legs, new minds, new Ghostbusters."

Let’s see, “Ghostbusters, The Next Generation” …  Has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
