Dan Aykroyd has just scored big points in our books.

The 62-year-old actor and one of the original paranormal chasers has spoken up in favour of the all-female reboot of the ‘Ghostbusters’ franchise.

Speaking to Spinoff Online, Aykroyd – who starred as Ray Stanz in the first and second installments – expressed confidence in the new movie and its cast, saying it’s going to be ‘hot’ and ‘big’.

And with popular comedians Melissa McCarthy and Kristen Wiig as well as Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones stepping into the ‘busters’ gear, we’d have to agree.

Plus of course there’s Chris Hemsworth (*drool*) playing the receptionist.

“The interplay, and with each of them, their individual voices are so well defined,” Aykroyd said.

“They’re just such different characters, and there’s a friction. There’s a dynamic there. I’m not going to spoil it for people, but it’s going to be big, big!”

Paul Feig, the man behind 2011 comedy ‘Bridesmaids’ and last year’s ‘The Heat’, has signed up to direct the third movie.

Aykroyd also has an official role in production as an executive producer.

‘Ghostbusters’ started shooting in Boston this week and is expected to hit the big screen in July next year.
