Bill Murray Explains a Whole Lot of Nothing Pertaining to Ghostbusters 3

Bill Murray Explains a Whole Lot of Nothing Pertaining to Ghostbusters 3You know, we tried and tried to resist writing this “news” story because it’s really not news. It’s just more lip service. But, after the seventh(!) tip about Murray talking Ghostbusters 3, we have finally caved in.

When last we visited this now tiresome story, Dan Aykroyd called Ghostbusters co-star Bill Murray and snarled, “Stop acting like a jerk”, citing Murray as the problem child in getting this third film made.

Murray finally retorted in an interview with Coming Soon:

“You know, it’s really the studio that starts this stuff,” he told the site. “They start saying ‘Ghostbusters.’ They want to do (it) and it’s really the world of sequels and bringing these things back again, and then some wiseacre said, ‘Hey, we got a couple of new writers who are gunna [sic] write something.’ And I thought, ‘Oh, well, maybe there’ll be some writers and there was always this joke, sort of a half-true, half-joke thing like, ‘Well, I’ll do it if you kill me off in the first reel.’ That was my joke, you know? So supposedly someone was writing a script where I actually got killed in the first reel and became a ghost, which I thought, ‘Well, that’s kind of clever anyway.’ But then these guys that were supposedly the writers that were going to do it, they wrote a film that came out and people saw the film* and went… ‘We’re not going to do it after all, are we?’ So it’s just a kind of a dreamy thing. They want to create a new generation of Ghostbusters, you know? They’d just like us to pass the torch.” (*Presumably that was Harold Ramis’ last movie Year One.)

    I honestly could give two craps about this movie at all. There’s no point in a sequel. And I guarantee the only way we’ll ever see a new Ghostbusters film is when the studios stop this and then one day say “we’re not including the original characters at all, we’re just casting new young actors and restarting the entire arc with a cameo from Slimer.”

    Mark my words.

    If I want to visit the ghost busters, I’ll watch the DVD’s. Fuck this and the whole nostalgia bullcrap.

    Fuck Bill Murray and his pretentious bullshit.

    He’s a road block just to be a road block. I have nothing but contempt for a man who doesn’t appreciate what brought him fans and success in the first place.

      I loved Bill Murray on SNL, Caddyshack and Stripes but I don’t expect him to do those things again. What he’s doing now is so much better.
