A HOLLYWOOD legend has announced they are planning a sequel to an iconic 80’s film – and it will be set in Scotland.

The team that created one of the greats of ’80s cinema, Ghostbusters, may be reuniting to work on a sequel.

And TV star Dan Aikroyd had said that if it goes ahead, it would play in Scotland.

The 71-year-old, who played Ray Stantz in the original film, recently traveled across the country.

He visited popular hotspots like Edinburgh, Glasgow, Skye and Glencoe.

And Dan explained that Scotland’s connection to “mythical creatures” makes it an ideal setting for the sequel.

Speak with weekend magazineHe said: “I have an idea for a sequel that I would play here in the UK.”

“There are many spirits and mythical creatures in Scotland.

“I’ve been to Skye, Glencoe Valley, Edinburgh, Glasgow… I really enjoyed it.”

The new follow-up film would be the sixth reboot of the Ghostbusters franchise – including the all-female film in 2016.

The previous Ghostbusters sequel, Afterlife, starring Paul Rudd, told the story of the grandson of Egon Spengler – one of the original Ghostbusters, played by the late Harold Ramis.

The 2021 film was a huge critical and commercial success, with director Jason Reitman earning critical acclaim for reviving the classic franchise for modern audiences.

But the 2016 reboot, which co-wrote “Brautaloms” director Paul Feig and starred Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, was met with mixed reviews.
