Here's he goes again. When Dan Aykroyd showed up on “The Today Show” this week to discuss his new film “Get On Up,” talk of course eventually turned to the "Ghostbusters" series, and in particular "Ghostbusters 3." Never one to miss a moment to ensure everyone that the movie is happening, he now says the paranormal franchise sequel would shoot next week.

Nothing Lasts Forever
So, how on Earth does a movie, made at the height of fame for both Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, not get released? That's a complicated one to answer, but for comedy fans, the 1984 movie "Nothing Lasts Forever" is something of a holy grail film, but thanks to the (probably temporary) powers of the interwebs, you can see the film that MGM apparently twice prevented from screening at the Cannes Film Festival.

Developing for nearly a decade, the adaptation of Deborah Moggach's "Tulip Fever"has seen all kinds of names — John Madden, Keira Knightley, Jude Law, Peter Chelsom, Tom Hooper — kick the tires, but nothing coalesced. But earlier this year the wheels started spinning again with Alicia Vikander became attached, and now she may be joined by Dane DeHaan.

It’s always fascinating what pops up on the internet years after it happens; and they say there’s nothing left to discover! A 1987 tribute to director Steven Spielberg has surfaced, a documentary entitled “Citizen Steve” -- cleverly parodying the legendary “Citizen Kane” -- made for the director’s 40th birthday by friends John Candy and Dan Aykroyd (who narrates).

Thirty years ago, "Trading Places," John Landis' classic comedy, premiered to critical and commercial success. Not only was it the 4th highest grossing film of 1983 (making over $90 million, behind "Flashdance," "Terms of Endearment," and "Return of the Jedi"), but the film also received praise from the likes of Roger Ebert ("This is good comedy") and Rex Reed ("Trading Places is an updated Frank Capra with four-letter words, and I can think of no higher praise than that"). The film is about two beyond-wealthy yet bored brothers (Ralph Bellamy and Don Ameche) who swap out a well-to-do finance guy in their employ (Dan Aykroyd) with a homeless conman (Eddie Murphy) just to watch the world burn, oh no, we mean to test the good old "nature vs. nurture" debate.

Earlier today, original "Ghostbusters" cast member (and co-writer) Dan Aykroyd revealed some details about the proposed "Ghostbusters 3." The project is a thing that, not unlike ghosts, ghouls, and specters, has yet to produce concrete evidence backing up the fact that it actually exists (or ever will). Aykroyd talked about story details, and confirmed that, yes, it is unlikely that Bill Murray will be a part of the new project. Still missing: cast details, a release date, and confirmation that this isn't an elaborate figment of Aykroyd's imagination brought on by drinking too much Crystal Head vodka.

Oh god, no. I mean, interesting news on the "Ghostbusters 3" front today. Dan Aykroyd, the self-appointed "cheerleader" of the "Ghostbusters" had a long sit down with Esquire and of course they delved into a long conversation about "Ghostbusters 3." The script appears to be done. It appears to be as "ready" as it's ever been (lord, when have we heard that one before). It's apparently the script everyone wants to make and Aykroyd even talks about potential 4th and 5th "Ghostbusters" films. Have mercy.

He was a good sport enough to spoof himself and the film in 2009's "Zombieland" (which you can see below) and at the 2010 Spike TV Scream Awards, but enough is apparently enough. It's official: Bill Murray won't reprise his role as Peter Venkman in "Ghostbusters 3," according to Dan Aykroyd himself. "No, I can tell you he won't be involved," Aykroyd said after being asked about Murray's participation for what has to be the umpteenth time.

"We'll try again," Bill Murray said recently on David Letterman, alluding to the status of the long-gestating "Ghosbusters 3" at Columbia Pictures. And so what's happening with the proposed after-the-fact threequel? Well, while Murray didn't exactly spell it out, recent news seems to confirm all suspicions: the most recent drafts of "Ghostbusters 3" have been thrown in the trash and inveterate "Ghosbusters" champion and producer Dan Aykroyd is starting over.

"Ghostbusters"
Remember 1984’s “GhostSmashers” aka “GhostStoppers”? Of course you do. With a star-studded cast featuring John Belushi (Peter Venkman), Dan Aykroyd (Ray Stantz), Jeff Goldblum (Egon Spengler), Eddie Murphy (Winston Zeddemore), John Candy (Louis), Sandra Bernhard (Janine) and Paul Reubens (Ivo Shandar/Gozer), the future-set supernatural comedy in which roving teams of ghost catchers protect humanity from the supernatural, directed by Ivan Reitman, cost a whopping $300 million to make, featured hundreds of monsters, including a giant marshmallow man, and spawned not one but two sequels; the second of which got smoothly underway recently with the full, gracious participation of all of the original cast.
