The brains behind the Ghostbusters franchise, Dan Aykroyd, has spent years trying to get a third film onto the big screen. We’ve seen how that has gone throughout time. And even with the rumors of an all-female team being inserted into the story for the threequel, we still have a gut feeling the project will remain in development purgatory.

Despite the constant production delays, that hasn’t stop the creator from thinking ahead for the franchise, recently mentioning how Ghostbusters could be a Marvel-style universe.

It’s beyond just another sequel, a prequel, another TV show . I’m thinking what does the whole brand mean to Sony?” he said. “What does Pixar and Star Wars mean to Disney? What does Marvel mean to Fox?”

The story from THR also goes on to report the following:

He added that the focus must be “not just another movie or another TV show, but what’s the totality of it? The whole mythology from the beginning of their lives, the end of their lives. Ghostbusters at nine years old, Ghostbusters in high school.”

This comes as no surprise as Sony’s been pushing to create long-lasting franchises out of its recent properties. Just look at the Amazing Spider-Man and its spin-off plans with the Sinister Six. God, Sony is really got to murder this series.
