Bill Murray: "Ghostbusters 3 is Dead"
In a recent interview with GQ Magazine, Bill Murray discussed the future of the rumored third film in the Ghostbusters franchise. He had this to say:
The star of the first two Ghostbusters films says that the much anticipated third film is "dead."
"It's all a bunch of crock. It's a crock...
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. But 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."
Well, I guess that answers that question. However, studios are a greedy group and it would not surprise me the least bit to see them go ahead with a new group of actors or better yet...you guessed it, a reboot. As a fan of the original films, I'd say just drop the idea and move on, but I just don't see that happening anytime soon. Time will tell on this one I guess.
