Ghostbusters 3 to start filming in the Fall?

According to Movieweb, via an interview with The Boston Globe, Dan Aykroyd has pretty much confirmed that Ghostbusters 3 is on the fast track to start production at the end of the year:

I'm sure you get these questions a lot, so I apologize in advance...Ghostbusters 3? I've heard that the writers of The Office are currently penning a script? How is this coming along, and should we look forward to this movie seeing the light of day?

Dan Aykroyd: Script is commenced early summer. Hope to be in production by late fall 2009

It seems that all the original characters will be returning to the film to "mentor" a new generation of Ghostbusters.  Ghostbusters has been a hot topic this year with the animated The Real Ghostbusters complete series box set coming in the Fall, the GHOSTBUSTERS video game (with original voice actors) coming in June and the blu-ray releases of both movies later this year.
