No Bill Murray? So what! Dan Aykroyd reveals Ghostbusters 3 plot

Even though the project’s still pretty much in ectoplasmic limbo (with hope for a green light to be finally given by Sony this summer), Dan Aykroyd seems quite happy to keep us updated on the status of the long-awaited-for Ghostbusters 3.

Speaking on Larry King Now, Aykroyd addressed the Bill Murray issue—saying that no, he’s still not doing it—but in the same breath revealed the plot for the sci-fi comedy flick.

Aykroyd said:

"We need four new Ghostbusters. We need four new Columbia students."

The reason for four new students? (Sounds like it’s gonna get crowded in Ecto 1.) Well, the new film is based around:

"New research that's being done in particle physics by the young men and women at Columbia University. ... I can say that the world or our dimension that we live in, our four planes of existence - length, height, width and time - become threatened by some of the research that is being done. And Ghostbusters, new Ghostbusters, have to come and solve the problem".

What do you guys think? Who are you gonna call?
