Hot on the heels of actual Ghostbusters III news comes more of the usual bullshit. Bill Murray is out again. Was he ever in? Does anyone even care anymore? When will this madness come to an end? Someone please wake us when it’s over.

Last month we told you that Men in Black 3 scribe Etan Cohen had been tapped to rewrite Ghostbusters III for the studio. Now it sounds like Cohen is writing one without Bill Murray’s character. Co-star Dan Aykroyd explains to Metro…

“I’m confident we’ll be in production in the next year, [but] I can tell you he won’t be involved…” He continued, “It’s sad, but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters III can be a successful movie without Bill. My preference would be to have him involved, but at this point he doesn’t seem to be coming and we have to move on. It’s time to make the third one.”

Aykroyd was always the last bastion of hope when it came to the full cast returning. If he’s given up, you can pretty much take that to the bank.

More as it comes.

    Maybe he’s keeping his schedule clear in case they announce a sequel to Get Smart….seriously Bill Murray, go fuck yourself. You’ve become completely irrelevant and haven’t done anything noteworthy or funny outside of the occasional cameo in over a decade.

    Why dont they just recast Him with Brian Doyle Murray. Hed probably be more willing.

  • Terminal

    Just remake it and be done with it. I doubt anyone cares about this sequel anymore.
