Dan Aykroyd may be stuck in his quest to resurrect Ghostbusters, but now he’s resurrecting the past for a new movie endeavor.
“Chevy (Chase) and I are about to start work on a script concept for a comedy movie,” Aykroyd wrote. “Cannot say too much about the concept, but the joy of working with him again is one that I am extremely excited about. Chevy is one of my favourite people, and one of the great anarchistic and physically committed comedians in the business.”
This pairing directly contrasts Aykroyd’s struggle with another SNL castmember, Bill Murray, who refuses to star in a revival of the Ghostbusters franchise.
The pair has worked together on a movie set before, as Chase starred in Aykroyd’s 1991 directorial debut, Nothing but Trouble.
Currently, Chase co-stars on the NBC sitcom Community, and Aykroyd was featured in the 2010 animated comedy Yogi Bear and will have a role in the upcoming Will Ferrell–Zach Galifianakis political comedy The Campaign.
