Murray says Ghostbusters 3 is crazy talk
While everyone is leaping on the story that Bill Murray has revealed how his character is written in Ghostbusters III, confirming the rumour that we heard of before from his co-star and himself, there's something else that caught my ear.
It's the way he's talking about the third film, and the disdain and offhand comments he's firing around about it. I wonder if he's even convinced that it's going to happen, or indeed if he's going to star in it.
The first part of this short clip taken from David Letterman reveals something that we already knew, but it is a big spoiler for the opening of the film and for his character, so I would suggest that if you don't want to hear about it you step away now.
He does show appropriate disdain for the second film, something that makes the audience laugh quite a bit, and a lot of people watching probably nodding away in agreement, however that carries forward into the talk of Ghostbusters III,.
First Bill Murray does confirm, yet again, that his character will most likely die early on, although that won't be the end of him, after all remember that this is Ghostbusters, and we need a new Slimer character, could that be Venkman?
Anyway, in the clip below he does say that when he was asked about returning to the film he said he would only do it if his character died. Viola, they've managed to do just that and probably keep in the film for some time.
What I think is more revealing is that he then he goes on to say that it's crazy talk and something about it being people who have way too much time on their hands who stay up all night and come up with these ideas. Is he talking about the film itself? Doesn't sound that he's really keen on the idea does it?
The clip comes from Letterman through YouTube and ShockTillYouDrop.
I'm still with Murray on this one, although I have to say the idea of him coming back as a ghost is rather inspired. I just don't feel his heart is in it, and I'm not convinced that he's certain he's going to do it yet, not if he's talking like this anyway.
