Take this one with a grain of salt because Dan Akroyd has been trying to get “Ghostbusters 3” off of the ground for a while now. But in a recent interview, he said that “Ghostbusters 3″ will receive half of the script very soon, begin production this fall and begin filming in early 2014.

“It’s very exciting,” Akroyd told ABC News. “The Higgs Boson and the particle theories, gluons and mesons, that really gives us a scientific base in terms of our fictional storytelling, to open up to another dimension and have something horrible coming through.”

Ivan Reitman is said to be returning to direct. The big question is if they can convince Bill Murray to return.
