Dan Aykroyd And Chevy Chase Planning New Comedy Together

Now is the ideal time for Dan Aykroyd to start work on a new project, while the last remnants of Ghostbusters 3 buzz keep him very much in mind. According to his Facebook page his next move will be to reunite with Chevy Chase and to start working on “a script concept for a comedy movie.”

Aykroyd and Chase have a considerable history together, both being alumni of Saturday Night Live, and having appeared in Spies Like Us, Nothing But Trouble and Caddyshack II.

So, okay, perhaps they’ve done better when working apart rather than together, but it’s never too late to change that.

Aykroyd isn’t saying much about these new endeavors yet, but he has got a lot of praise for Chase:

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.

Okay, I’ll second that. I love watching Chase, and I know I’ll revisit some of his films – Caddyshack, Seems Like Old Times, the first Vacation – many times yet.

And he has a good public profile right now, thanks to Community. The time really is right. I hope they’ve got something good here, and that they get the right talent attached to bring it to life.

Thanks to Coming Soon for the Facebook link.
