Could this whole saga finally be over? We cannot help but feel that it’s been going on longer than Ross and Rachel’s will they /won’t they relationship.
In July we reported that a new writer had been hired, in April Bill Murray was alledgedly reconsidering being in a third film (despite the rumours in December of him ripping up a script) and on Valentines Day this year Dan Aykroyd announced that “the script must be perfect” to make the film – now that’s asking a lot isn’t it?
Now Aykroyd has confirmed that Bill Murray will 100% not be appearing in a third film in an interview in the Metro.
Read on for the skinny below:
“Is Ghostbusters 3 finally happening?
Yes, we’ve got a brilliant new writer on it and we’ll be passing the torch on to a new generation. We’re working on it to make it just right to satisfy our fans. I’m confident we’ll be in production in the next year.
It’s been a long process, hasn’t it?
Yes, but now we’ve got the studio on side. We’ve tried a few concepts which weren’t right but now we’ve got a good structure and will make it happen.
Is Bill Murray doing it?
No, I can tell you he won’t be involved.
How do you feel about that?
It’s sad but we’re passing it on to a new generation. Ghostbusters 3 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.”
You can read the full interview where he also discuses his new show, spiritualism and some other stuff that wasn’t all that interesting here.
At this point I can honestly say that personally I no longer care if they make a third film or not and if Murray isn’t going to be in it well it’s likely to be a load of tramps pants anyway.
What do you think? Lost interest or willing to hold on a little bit longer?
Should they really make a Ghostbusters 3?
