Ghostbusters is one of the biggest movie franchises in history and now it looks like we could see a live-action Netflix series according to Dan Aykroyd. Aykroyd originally thought up the concept for Ghostbusters as a vehicle for himself and fellow Saturday Night Live cast member John Belushi, but ultimately sold director Ivan Reitman on the project and the rest is history. The idea of getting more Ghostbusters projects off of the ground seems to have ramped up after the all-female reboot came up short at the box office and now it looks like Netflix’s Stranger Things may have had something to do with the idea behind a live-action Ghostbusters series.
So far, there is currently a Ghostbusters animated movie in the works under the direction of Ivan Reitman that is rumored to take place through the point-of-view of the ghosts. Not much else is known about the project other than it could possibly come out in 2019. While that news seems to be pretty underwhelming, Dan Aykroyd has provided some new hope for a live-action Ghostbusters project that has drawn some inspiration from Stranger Things.
Dan Aykroyd recently spoke at an event promoting the new Ghostbusters and Stranger Things partnership with Reebok. The actor was asked if he could see a live-action series for the iconic Ghostbusters and he had this to say.
“Yes. Absolutely. Sure. Sure. I can see several possibilities there. You know? Take a cue from these guys in Stranger Things<!
