Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase Team for Comedy Screenplay


Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase have plans to re-team for a new comedy, Aykroyd revealed today on his Facebook page.

“Chevy (Chase) and I are about to start work on a script concept for a comedy movie,” he writes. “Cannot say too much about the concept, but the joy of working with him again is one that I am extremely excited about. Chevy is one of my favourite people, and one of the great anarchistic and physically committed comedians in the business.”

Both comedians began their careers on “Saturday Night Live” and, over the years, have teamed for a number of film projects, including John Landis’ Spies Like Us and Aykroyd’s sole directing credit, 1991’s Nothing But Trouble. Though that was their last teaming on the big screen, the pair both lent their voices to 2009 episode of “Family Guy” entitled “Spies Reminiscent of Us.”

At the moment, details are few as to what form the new Aykroyd/Chase project might take, but check back for information as it becomes available.
