When there’s something strange in the neighborhood – who you gonna call? Eliza Dushku says producers can call her because she ain’t afraid of no ghosts!

Dan Ackroyd, 57, has been tossing around the possibility of a third Ghostbusters flick since early 2009, but will it finally come to fruition with five new Ghostbusters, as he planned? Eliza Dushku certainly hopes so – especially because longtime friend Dan wants her on board!

“I don’t know anything, I don’t have a script – it’s still a rumor thing right now” the 29-year-old actress, who starred on the recently canceled Fox show, Dollhouse, admitted to HollywoodLife.com at Discovery’s Life premiere in Los Angeles Feb. 25. She added, “But I would be excited to do it! Dan is a friend since I was a young, and I love [original star Sigourney Weaver] and would love to zip on a proton pack!”

As for other new projects, Eliza is plotting a feature film further down the pipeline with Dollhouse creator Joss Whedon, 45 – but coyly refuses to tell us its content.

“I would say that we would [be working on something new very soon]!” she confided to us. “I think we’re going to work on a kickass feature together that we’ve been thinking about for a few years.”

After appearing sexy bad girl programs like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Dollhouse, we have no doubt that Eliza’s next project is – quite literally – going to have her kicking ass!

Tom, well said, my friend. Well said. I watched every season of Buffy, every season of Angel (own all of both series on DVD) as well as Serenity. But what you said is every bit true. It’s not that Whedon isn’t perfect. It’s the mindless, moronic minions who piss me off the most. See every response to your post for confirmation of this. Anyway, well said, again.

I think Alyssa Milano should be in Ghostbusters 3! She was great in the video game.

Eliza is amazing and a true talent. I love when Eliza and Joss work together! Please let this happen soon! I can’t get enough of the Dushku. She’s gorgeous, charismatic, and such a great actress. Joss always writes the best roles for Eliza.

The only place ELiza Dusku belongs is on Bring It Again, and Again, and Again. Or a sex tape.

Most people just don’t want to see a good story. Sophistication and long plots don’t sell in the age of the micro-blog, and it is a damn shame. I wish Eliza and Joss all the luck in the world on any project they do together. Oh, and I don’t have to tell you that pretty much every Joss/Eliza fan in the world is rootin’ for a Faith the Vampire Slayer flick…!

I love Whedon and nearly everything he does but I wish he would quit using Eliza Dushku for anything more than a recurring bad girl — she CAN’T ACT. She’s terrible! Doe-eyes and a perpetually confused face is not ACTING. It’s modeling. She’s beautiful for sure but she absolutely killed Dollhouse for me.

Hope Ghostbusters happens.

Really hopes Eliza stays away from Whedon. That guy seems to be the David Koresh of the movie world. Incredibly arrogant, plots are very contrived and full of holes, is completely willing to sacrifice characterisation and continuity to advance the storyline or worse get in a silly quip, doesn’t do well at the box office, and yet has a whole tribe of trollish acolytes screaming and wailing about how ‘genius’ he is.

Keep drinking the kool-aid.

Good luck anyway Eliza.

David Koresh? Screaming acolytes? Man, nobody’s getting burned to death, this is fandom not a religion, and you seriously need to get over yourself. It’s just a bit of fun, take a chill pill.

God I think some people really need to breathe! Whedon is awesome! And if you don’t like him and his work it’s ok; just don’t talk for Eliza. If she still works with Joss, she must have some reasons, it means that his work is good for her and her career. Plus, they’re friends. Why the hell should Eliza get away from him?

For all I hear of these ‘screaming acolytes’ the most vocal group tends to be the Whedon bashers trying to get a rise out of the fans.

He writes good stuff. It’s not always perfect, but there’s probably a reason why he’s got the fan base he has and why he’s such a critical darling other than your supposed brainwashed followers.

“God I think some people really need to breathe!”

God some people’s mothers shouldn’t have drunk and smoked when pregnant.

“Whedon is awesome!”

Awesome if you like silly dialouge, plot holes, incosistent characterisation, and a lack of continuity.

Awesome is West Wing, Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, Sons Of Anarchy, Dexter, Farscape, and Babylon 5. To name but a few shows that don’t sacrifice characterisation or plot with contrivances and holes like the suddenly weakening ubers, Andrew who Giles openly loathed in Buffy suddenly is right hand man several months later, Angel hiring Harmony, the Scoobies keeping Spike as a pet in Season 4, the Council not killing a comatose Faith but being quite happy to try and kill her when she was awake and able to beat them up.

Oh and the ‘rape of the First Slayer ‘ in Get It Done suddenly turning into Mass Empowering in Chosen.

And before you blah, blah about me watching him. Watched Buffy and Angel (liked Seasons 1 -3 even with the gross cock-ups, thought Angel was great until Whedon took direct control), never bought a comic written by him, saw the cast list for Firefly, never watched a second, and won’t be watching anything else he does without Eliza.

“And if you don’t like him and his work it’s ok; just don’t talk for Eliza.”

Right.

Okay, where was talking for her? Where in the blue heck was I saying what Eliza thought?

I said I thought she was too good for him.

I didn’t say she thought he was too good for him.

Learn to read.

“For all I hear of these ’screaming acolytes’ the most vocal group tends to be the Whedon bashers trying to get a rise out of the fans.”

Yes because Browncoats don’t go on general sci-fi sites attacking people for not watching their show or lie about Serenity being a hit.

“He writes good stuff. It’s not always perfect, but there’s probably a reason why he’s got the fan base he has and why he’s such a critical darling other than your supposed brainwashed followers”

Yeah there is.

It’s called a general lowering in standards throughout education.

Oh and mothers drinking booze and smoking crack during pregnancy.

Wow, you’ve got issues. You’re naming a few great shows, but were they perfect? No they weren’t. Apparently you liked those shows, so why not BtVS?

Tom, stop taking it so hard… you literally insulted your nay-sayers and their mothers, too far perhaps? Grow up, get over your self and try to find something in your real life that’ll a. teach you tact and b. hopefully distract you from taking the internet (and you know, maybe the rest of humanity) too personally.
I mean, really, way to sound like an intense asshole.

What I find hilarious is that you somehow have the idea in your head that, between Dushku and Whedon, DUSHKU is more talented.

Sure, she showed some growth in acting over the course of two seasons of Dollhouse, but she was pretty lousy on Buffy and Angel.

And, of course, Whedon’s work doesn’t compare to The West Wing or Breaking Bad (though I’d point out that West Wing got pretty bad once Sorkin left), but you’re comparing his work to the best of the best. Few creations *could* compare. Doesn’t mean his stuff isn’t still great, rewatchable, fun, dramatic, and touching. And all the best episodes of Buffy were written by him and stand the test of time, like Hush, Once More with Feeling, his part of Conversations with Dead People, The Body, etc…

“that don’t sacrifice characterisation or plot with contrivances and holes like the suddenly weakening ubers, Andrew who Giles openly loathed in Buffy suddenly is right hand man several months later, Angel hiring Harmony, the Scoobies keeping Spike as a pet in Season 4, the Council not killing a comatose Faith but being quite happy to try and kill her when she was awake and able to beat them up.”

The ubervamps didn’t weaken. Buffy got beat down killing the one uber that got loose before the finale, which during the finale, the potentials became slayers with many of them still dying. So how exactly does that make the ubers come off as weak?

The Andrew, Harmony and Spike points you made…have you ever heard of character development? So what if Giles loathed Andrew? He’d proven himself and the Scoobies needed the help so I don’t see what the problem is there.

As for Harmony, Angel didn’t hire her, Wesley did, to which initially Angel protested. The whole point of her working for Angel was a plot tool to show how Angel was slowly losing himself by taking over W & H. Also, while Harmony was technically evil, she was never really evil, evil.

And Spike? Really? Did you even watch Buffy at all? For starters, they certainly never “kept him as a pet” in season 4. Was he around and did he help out? Sure, but not as their pet. He didn’t become a part of the “gang” till at least season 5, and by then he’d become somewhat trustworthy. And even at that point the Scoobies never fully trusted him.

I always took the council not killing Faith while she was in a coma as them wanting, or hoping to control her if she woke up. If you remember in Season 3 they initially wanted to to capture her, and wasn’t until they couldn’t that they decided to kill her. I suppose though that could be left up to the viewer’s interpretation.

“It’s called a general lowering in standards throughout education.”

Lastly, I hardly doubt a show, or shows, as critically acclaimed as Joss Whedon’s shows are, is considered lowering standards throughout education. Especially considering that there are college courses based off Buffy all throughout the US. American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, 90210, Greys Anatomy, now those are dumbing down the nation tv shows.

Granted, you are certainly entitled to your opinion, and I will respect that and not in any way indicate that your mother smoked crack while she was pregnant with you (super mature of you, by the way) because we don’t agree. But if you want to have a real, intelligent debate about something, at least know the facts and leave the insults out of it.
