GB3 to have Ghostbuster cadets April 26th, 2009

Dan Akroyd has offered up a cou­ple of Ghost­busters 3 tid­bits for us. There shall be Ghost­buster cadets, pre­sum­ably in train­ing, using all the new Ghost­buster tools that have been devel­oped since their last big NY out­ing. Harold Ramis main­tains that every­body from the orig­i­nal cast shall return, though Sigour­ney Weaver is doubtful.

“There will be a whole new gen­er­a­tion that has to be trained, and that whole new gen­er­a­tion will be led by an indi­vid­ual who you’ll all love when you meet him but I’m not going to tell you any­thing yet,” teased Aykroyd. “They’ll be lots of cadets, boys and girls, who’ll be learn­ing how to use the psy­chotron, the accel­er­a­tors and all the new stuff, the neu­ron split­ter, which is going to be the inter­planer, inter­cep­tor and all these great tools that they’re going to have, to flip from dimen­sion to dimension.”

The word, ‘Cadet’ implies there may be some sort of ghost and para­nor­mal acad­emy. And using the word ‘lots’ sug­gests there will be a large group of Ghostbusters.

Time to throw an odd­ball out there, with mere spec­u­la­tion you can see how this might spread out to form a num­ber of Ghost­buster fran­chises across the US, tack­ling the para­nor­mal every­where, rather than just NY.
