Amidst all the controversy surrounding the new Ghostbusters movie, Dan Aykroyd takes to Facebook to defend the film.

Dan Aykroyd says he saw a cut of the Ghostbusters movie and seemingly offers it's better than the original.

"As originator of the original: Saw test screening of new movie. Apart from brilliant, genuine performances from the cast both female and male, it has more laughs and more scares than the first 2 films plus Bill Murray is in it! As one of millions of man-fans and Ray Stantz, I'm paying to see that and bringing all my friends!"

In addition to Bill Murray, it's been said that Sigourney Weaver, Ernie Hudson and Aykroyd himself have cameos.

Update: Dan Aykroyd's cameo has leaked online.
