It’s been an uphill battle for Dan Aykroyd, as far as making Ghostbusters 3 a reality is concerned, what with the series of setbacks and disappointments, and the lack of interest from several original cast members. However, it seems like he has a chance of convincing at least one former cast member to return.
According to a Heeb Magazine report, Rick Moranis, who played Louis Tully in both of the original movies, can be persuaded into reprising his role:
“I got a call three or four years ago from an associate of Aykroyd’s,” says Moranis. “Some sort of producer. And he said, ‘Listen, I gotta ask you something, because the internet says you’re retired…I gotta ask, would you do it?’”
“I said, ‘I don’t say no to anything until everything is presented to me. What is it? Is it happening? Is there a script? What’s the part? Who else is in it? Where is it? How long is it gonna take?’ You know, I need a little bit more information.”
