Why Bill Murray Will Do Ghostbusters 3

by nathanbloch   March 30, 2009 at 7:15PM  |  Views: 147

Bits and pieces of rumors about the third Ghostbusters film that's presently in the works continue to slip out as Harold Ramis, co-writer and co-star of the first two films, gives occasional interviews. And they keep on getting juicier. Will the final film be as good as all the gossip surrounding it?

Screen Rant let us in on what Ramis has been saying about the much-anticipated part three of the Ghostbusters franchise, as well as the lowdown on the tension between Bill Murray and the rest of the cast. On the writers of the new script, Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, and Murray, he says:

Gene and Lee, both of whom I mentored, are now writing the new Ghostbusters. I’m consulting with them, as is Dan Aykroyd, and [original director] Ivan Reitman. Bill Murray is just waiting for the truckload of money to arrive to get him out of his office.

Oh, snap! A little bit of jesting between friends? Most likely not. If Ramis keeps making cracks like that at his one-time friend, this Ghostbusters sequel just might not ever get off the ground. He goes on about Murray a bit more:

I haven’t talked to him about it. I want to talk to him about it eventually. I think we just need a script, because he’s the thorniest of the group.

Thorniest, greediest, sheesh. The barbs are flying. It's a barb-a-thon! Apparently in the past Murray has insisted he won't do another Ghostbusters film unless the script is just right. Hopefully he hasn't just been teasing us along, though if his participation in the recent video game is any indication he actually is interested.

As for who will play the younger Ghostbusters? That hasn't been worked out just yet. Nor does Ramis seem to know who's going to direct the picture -- at this point all we know is that it's not going to be Ramis or Ivan Reitman, the director of the first two.

If you were thinking Judd Apatow after reading that sentence, you stop it. You stop it right now.
