Right when I’ve just about come to accept that ‘Ghostbusters 3’ probably isn’t going to happen, Bill Murray has to go ahead and do something like this.
As we’ve discovered previously, Murray has the power to veto the script and stop a second sequel from happening if he doesn’t think the script is up to par. Since no one really wants to see another ‘Ghostbusters’ movie without him anyway, I think we can all live with his decision to turn down the most recent draft and just go back to watching the original on DVD.
However, the actor who brought Dr. Peter Venkman to life in the first two classic sci-fi comedy films appeared on Late Show with David Letterman recently, where the veteran talk show host asked Murray about the status of ‘Ghostbusters 3’. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“It’s got to be really funny and that first one was so darn funny, it’s hard for me… I think we’ll try again. I always drag my feet on it, but I think…”
And then Dave cuts him off.
Just like that time he showed up to an award show dressed as Venkman (as seen above), Murray has us hopeful for this project again, despite quotes from co-star and friend Dan Aykroyd that “Bill Murray will not do the movie.” Maybe after the writers give the script another go, Murray will give it the green light and we’ll finally get to see this long-talked about ‘Ghostbusters’ movie.
