Murray still says Ghostbusters 3 isn't happening

Ghostbusters.jpgBill Murray is still talking about Ghostbusters 3 and it's not in the positive either, he's continuing to talk about how it's just not going to happen this time around, and it's not down to him it seems.

He's clearly saying that it was the poor performance of Year One which ended the idea of the scripting and therefore Ghostbusters 3, and the overall story is still no third film.

Speaking about the film to GQ through CinemaBlend, Bill Murray is very clear about what's not happening on the project:

"Harold Ramis said, Oh, I've got these guys, they write on The Office, and they're really funny. They're going to write the next Ghostbusters. And they had just written this movie that he had directed...Year One. Well, I never went to see Year One, but people who did, including other Ghostbusters, said it was one of the worst things they had ever seen in their lives. So that dream just vaporized. That was gone."

Done deal. However that doesn't mean the film won't be happening in the future and Murray points out something he's said before:

"...it's the studio that really wants this thing. It's a franchise. It's a franchise, and they made a whole lot of money on Ghostbusters."

We've heard that before and you can be assured that if this team can't make Ghostbusters 3 happen the studio will, with or without the original members.

I can actually see them taking control of the project and having a few token members of the original team to tell how their days ended before the new young Hollywood comic actors come in to replace them. I actually think that's not too far off from happening.
