Blues Brothers 3
— Posted by Rodney
File this one under the category of “Oh for heavens sake just let it go”. Word is that Dan Aykroyd has plans to develop a Blues Brothers 3. I’ll give you a moment to slap your heads….
The Blues Brothers is still a movie that stops me dead in my tracks when I’m channel surfing late at night. That movie was just hilarious. But everyone knew far in advance that doing a sequel without John Belushi was a bad idea. And the movie proved it. Oh man number 2 was just painful to watch.
One of the saddest things about this whole story is the fall of Dan Aykroyd, who I think is terrific. I thought his role in Grosse Pointe Blank was going to re-launch his career… and it SHOULD have. But he’s still just doing cheesy Canadian Sci-Fi X-Files wannabe shows and now crap like this. The good folks over at Insomniac Mania offer up this:
Dan Aykroyd has plans to create a “Blues Brothers 3″. Whilst talking to The Chicago Sun Times, Aykroyd announced he does have plans and that it go “straight-to-DVD”. He continued “I don’t think we’d ever get the financing for another feature. Jimmy Belushi [John’s brother] will play the heir to the throne of Albania in the next movie.”
What? You’re kidding! Someone won’t finance this!?!? Shocking! Ok, enough with the sarcasm. This is a bad idea and hopefully some of Aykroyd’s close friends and relatives will hold some kind of intervention meeting with him. Let it go Dan… just let it go.
