This has been going on for years now. Dan Aykroyd and Harold Ramis have been trying to get a third Ghostbusters movie off the ground. The problem is, they can’t do it without Bill Murray, and Bill Murray absolutely does not want to do it.
Actually I really do believe Murray might do it if they came up with a brilliant script, but so far he’s hated everything they’ve handed him. There had been hints that Murray might finally be on board and ready to go with the project, but now rumor has it that Murray’s out again and that he hated the most recent draft of the script so much he shredded the screenplay and sent the confetti back to Aykroyd and Ramis. With the scraps of paper was this note: “No one wants to pay money to see fat, old men chasing ghosts!”
As always happens whenever Bill Murray rains on their Ghostbusters parade Ramis and Akyroyd are vowing to make it without him, but I don’t think that will happen. Most fans would rather have no Ghostbusters at all than Ghostbusters without Murray packing a proton pack as Peter Venkman.
