Dan Aykroyd

Homicide Case

Opened Over Crappy Movie

EXCLUSIVE

Who you gonna call? The police! 

Dan Aykroyd became the focus of a homicide investigation when a landfill worker uncovered film of the actor standing over a bloody corpse -- and it turns out he's guilty ... of making a really bad movie.

Law enforcement officials in Calgary, Canada tell TMZ the dump worker found the damaged film on Wednesday afternoon, and turned it in to police ... thinking he had stumbled upon evidence in a murder.

We're told the employee didn't recognize Aykroyd, but once investigators cleaned the dirty negative they spotted the ghostbuster. Problem is ... they couldn't tell which one of his nearly 100 flicks they were seeing. 

Police then contacted All American Speakers -- a company that books celebs for events -- and also Dan's reps ... who revealed the scene was from the 1990 bomb "Loose Cannons."

If you've never heard of it ... that's cool with Dan. When we called about the investigation he told us, "The movie should have been left in the landfill where it belongs."

Case closed.

it is funny how bill Murry could bridge the gap and transition between comedy and serious drama ..Where dan has been stuck or held back by a luggish Canadian accent which seems to hod him back.

"Calgary, Canada"? Get it right TMZ. It's Calgary, Alberta. Saying Calgary, Canada is like saying Miami, United States.

The numb nuts churning out these suck-ass movies should take notes from Aykroyd if you make a bad movie own up to it and don't run around acting as if you've given an Oscar winning performance.

What's this dude doing pulling a movie out of the landfill and watching it?! Hoping to find some personal stuff of somebodys! A-hole. Thief probably, he was likely looking for ID numbers and such. Nobody goes through stuff that carefully unless they are up to something.

Went to All American Speakers and was really surprised at the fees some of these people charge. I could maybe see Akroyd performing as one of the Blues Brothers but I am not sure what he would speak about? Anyway, pretty interesting to see fees listed. www.allamericanspeakers.com

'50 First Dates' and 'Driving Miss Daisy' are two good examples of Aykroyd moves into drama well.
