Bill Murray Talks Ghostbusters 3 With Letterman, Admits He’s Dragging His Feet

Will he/won’t he has been the question regarding Bill Murray and the long-rumored Ghostbusters 3. Some reports have him on board, others say he tore up the script. It’s a tiring cycle of speculation and hearsay. One installment of this rumor parade had Murray coming back as Peter Venkman’s ghost, and others have the old Ghostbuster team handing off the reigns of the franchise to a younger generation. Both of those ideas cause me to crinkle up my nose and make a face like something smells bad.

Everyone assumes that they’ve yet to settle on a decent script, and Murray confirmed as much when he was on with Letterman.



Sigourney Weaver Indicates Ghostbusters 3 Will Not Happen Without Bill Murray

Busting ghosts must be a far more difficult job than anyone imagined, as we’re now learning the third Ghostbusters film may not move forward without Bill Murray. According to recent comments by Sigourney Weaver it looks as if Ghostbusters 3 is back on hold…or maybe we should just stop wishing and hoping.

Our cohorts over at Cinema Blend have been covering the on-again off-again status of the production. One moment Dan Aykroyd is saying the movie will go on without Venkman, the next we’re hearing otherwise. According to a Collider interview with Sigourney Weaver the cast will not return if Murray is absent from the film. Weaver previously indicated to CB that a version with Peter Venkman being dead was possible.
