Is Bill back or not?
What’s up with Bill Murray and Ghostbusters 3? Everyone would like to see him back, but he’s being cantankerous about the whole matter. Last month, he was on Letterman, calling the whole thing a “nightmare.” What the hell did he mean? Our brother site, ComingSoon.net, spoke to the actor yesterday to get to the heart of the matter.
“You know, it’s really the studio starts this stuff,” he told CS. “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.)
So why did he refer to it as a “nightmare” – follow this link for more!
