Ghostbusters 3 in the Works, Without Bill Murray?

by at . Comments

Who you gonna call? Not Bill Murray. Ghostbusters 3 is being actively pursued by writer / star Dan Aykroyd, but his co-star does not want any part of it apparently.

The Ghostbusters retired ages ago, after a 1984 hit film, 1989 sequel, and two animated TV shows. But talk of another film has been rekindled of late.

In a webcast with Empire magazine, Dan Aykroyd implied he and co-star Rick Moranis were actively working to bring Ghostbusters 3 to theaters.

"If we can get the script to 'Ghostbusters 3' right, then it would definitely have Moranis as a major component," said Aykroyd of the potential project.

"None of us would want to do the movie without having him as a participant.”

He also responded to questions that another star, Bill Murray, wasn’t into the idea, denying reports that Murray actually shredded a potential script.

Murray also allegedly said “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts.” Replied Dan, “Bill Murray is not capable of such behavior."

"This is simply something that would not be in his nature. It's not true. We have a deep, private personal relationship that transcends business."

"We communicate frequently and his position on the involvement in Ghostbusters 3 has been made clear and I completely respect that.”

So no script shredding but no interest either. Tough to say what a Ghostbusters movie would be like without Murray. What do you think?

Don't do a ghostbusters movie without Bill Murray or true fans will hate that shit! Murray is right we don't need another movie! We already have GB1-GB2 that's enough for me.

I dont know why Bill murray wouldnt want to do another movie, it would be fantastic. I dont know about anyone else but i played the recent Ghostbusters video game with the original cast voicing and it was great to have all the original crew back together, even for a video game.

I think it will be one of the best ones if they get the script right. There is so much more you can do to movies that you couldn't do back then. With or without Bill it will still be good.

This movie will be a big hit even without Murray. Although I would miss his unique performance. I will still pay $10 + snacks to see this movie and any other Ghostbusters movie in theaters. Aykroyd is hugely funny in his own rights and Moranis is one of the greatest actors I have had the pleasure of seeing in my life. Sorry Bill, The Ghostbusters franchise is bigger than you. Rest in Piece Dr. Peter Venkman.

I hate that Bill Murray wont be on Ghostbusters 3, I wish he would reconsider, just this 1 time. No one cares what he looks like, just so he is doing his usual thing. When u hear the song, he is the 1st one u think of. I know that the other actors will put more than 100% to make this a hit and show us that they can do it with out him.
