Murray talks Ghostbuters 3 again

Ghostbusters.jpgBill Murray has been talking a bit more about a Ghostbusters 3 film. He recently hinted that he might be interested in starring in a new film. And he has reiterated some of those comments again.

Momentum keeps building for this one, will they all get together at some stage?

Bill Murray recently talked about the new script being written for Ghostbusters 3, and how disappointed he was with Ghostbusters 2. He has talked about a third film again, and still sounds positive.

The third one could happen.There's two fellows from The Office that are writing a script, but I've yet to see it. And I'm more involved with, you know, trying to get the dessert we ordered at lunch than I am with the new Ghostbusters sequel. But it's possible. It's a great idea that they hired these two guys to do it, because I think it'll be a ... it could be a fresh look at it. And it could be funny.

A mixture of coulds and possibles there. But atleast he's open to the idea. He's not quite so positive when talking about Ghostbusters 2.

We did a sequel, and it was sort of rather unsatisfying for me, because the first one to me was the goods. It was the real thing. And the sequel, you know, was ... it was a few years later. There was an idea pitched. And it was like, well, they got us all together in a room. We just laughed for a couple of hours. And then they said, 'What if we did another one? Here's an idea. So they had this idea, but it didn't turn out to be the idea when I arrived on the set. They'd written a whole different movie than the one [initially discussed]. And the special-effects guys got it and got their hands on it. And it was just not the same movie. There were a few great scenes in it, but it wasn't the same movie. So there's never been an interest in a third Ghostbusters, because the second one was kind of disappointing ... for me, anyway.

So it could be the time since the sequel has been long enough. As usual though it will lie with the script. And after the first sequel, Murray probably won't be involved unless it's spot on. Do you agree with him on Ghostbusters 2? Are you only interested in a sequel that will better it?



I do agree with Murray, I felt the same way about Ghost Busters 2 (not that I starred in it or was in anyway involved in it). The second film is very weak compared to the first and if they go ahead with a third I think they will have to work their socks off to make it better than the second and if they can, better than the first. But of course this will only happen if Murray is involved and I hope that he is.

I loved the first Ghostbusters. The second one - well, I can only tolerate it. A third one would have to go a long way to convince me it was going to be any good. Murray's schtick at 35 is cute and funny - the same Venkman, at 55, is going to be pathetic, I fear...

Keep the modern pop culture to a minimum; focus on ghosts and comedy; keep Bobby Brown outa this one!
