While promoting his newest comedy album, My Mother’s Brisket, comic actor Rick Moranis spoke to Heeb Magazine about Ghostbusters 3.
The film has beeen in development hell for many years but is getting closer and closer to finally hitting the big screen after many years.
The SCTV veteran tells Heeb that Spaceballs II: The Search for More Money was considered to be a very serious thought at one point.
Mel wanted to do a sequel after it became a cult video hit. It wasn’t a box office hit. It was a cult video hit, and MGM wanted to do a sequel. And my idea for it was Spaceballs III: The Search for Spaceballs II. And I was unable to make a deal with Mel. I couldn’t make a deal.
Moranis didn’t really talk specifics for his idea.
He did say later in the interview that an associate of Aykroyd got in touch about three or four years ago to talk Ghostbusters 3. A common misconception was that Moranis retired, which could not be further from the truth.
Unlike his fellow cast member Bill Murray, Moranis is open to filming a third film in the supernatural comedy saga.
Moranis’ new CD is released this week.
